About the iDatalink Maestro RR2 Interface Module

Keep your vehicle's features

iDatalink's Maestro ADS-MRR2 module, along with the correct interface harness for your vehicle, allows you to install a new car stereo in select late-model Chrysler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Honda/Acura, Subaru, Toyota/Scion, and Volkswagen vehicles while retaining your steering wheel audio controls and other factory conveniences you've grown accustomed to. You'll also need an additional Maestro vehicle-specific wiring harness that connects your new receiver to the ADS-MRR2 module and your vehicle's wiring. When you purchase a new car stereo, we will automatically offer this harness along with ADS-MRR2 module at a discounted price on your way to the Cart.

Keep your vehicle's features

iDatalink's Maestro ADS-MRR2 module, along with the correct interface harness for your vehicle, allows you to install a new car stereo in select late-model Chrysler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Honda/Acura, Subaru, Toyota/Scion, and Volkswagen vehicles while retaining your steering wheel audio controls and other factory conveniences you've grown accustomed to. You'll also need an additional Maestro vehicle-specific wiring harness that connects your new receiver to the ADS-MRR2 module and your vehicle's wiring. When you purchase a new car stereo, we will automatically offer this harness along with ADS-MRR2 module at a discounted price on your way to the Cart.

Here's how it works

First, you connect the Maestro to your computer using the included USB cable, visit www.idatalink.com/maestro, and follow the instructions. Once the unit has been "flashed," it's ready to go. Next, you'll either solder or crimp the vehicle-specific Maestro harness (sold separately) to your new receiver's wiring, just like you would with any Crutchfield wiring harness or wiring adapter.

Retains steering wheel audio controls

The ADS-MRR2 module also allows you to use your factory steering wheel audio controls with your new receiver. Using the intuitive web programming interface, each factory button can be assigned a specific radio function. Better yet, you can also assign a secondary "press and hold" radio function to each factory button, effectively doubling what can be controlled. It's simple to update the module's firmware and software via a wireless Bluetooth connection.

Command center 

The ADS-MRR2 features three programmable outputs which allow you to control relay-driven aftermarket accessories from an iDatalink Serial Port-compatible Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, or Pioneer in-dash receiver. These outputs can be individually configured to Latch, Toggle, Follow a CAN signal in the car (firmware dependent), or have a custom output configuration, as well as setting Delay On and Delay Off times for each output. You can also assign a steering wheel control button from the vehicle to control one of these outputs. The ADS-MRR2 also features a dedicated port for radar detector integration that allows you to connect to select Escort radar detectors (sold separately). 

Keeping your factory features with an iDatalink-compatible car stereo

If you're buying a compatible Kenwood, JVC, Pioneer, Sony, or Alpine receiver, you'll enjoy the outstanding performance of your receiver, plus seamless touchscreen control over most of the factory features in select vehicles (see Details for specific functions and installation notes). You'll also see a list of these features on the way to the Cart with the car stereo you've selected.

With most iDatalink-compatible car stereos, you'll also be able to add additional features like performance gauges, climate controls, and parking assistance that appear on your new receiver's touchscreen.

Car stereos that aren't iDatalink-compatible 

With car stereos that are not iDatalink-compatible, you'll usually retain your steering wheel controls and the use of your factory amplifier, although retained features vary according to the vehicle. Again, you'll see a list of features on the way to the Cart.

iDatalink Maestro RR2

Web-Programmable Radio Replacement Solution: The iDatalink Maestro RR2 (ADS-MRR2) is part of a web-programmable solution that allows you to replace the factory radio in many 2006-up Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep/RAM, Toyota/Scion, Honda/Acura, Fiat, Subaru, and Volkswagen/Audi vehicles (requires additional vehicle specific harness). Retained features will vary by vehicle and aftermarket head unit.

Flashing Module via Weblink Desktop: The iDatalink Maestro RR2 (ADS-MRR2) will need to be loaded with correct firmware before installation. The included USB cable plugs into your computer and allows you to "flash" the Maestro RR2 with the appropriate firmware to prepare it for installation. Simply download Weblink Desktop (for Windows and Mac) onto your computer to access the appropriate firmware. System requirements include -

  • Windows PC (10/8.1/8/7/Vista/XP/2000) or Mac OS X (Mojave [10.14], HighSierra [10.13], Sierra [10.12], El-Capitan [10.11])
  • Available USB port (version 2.0 or 3.0)
  • 4GB RAM or more
  • 200MB available space on HDD
  • Internet connection

Note: Not compatible with Chromebook and other operating systems not listed above.

Bluetooth Updates (Coming Soon; no ETA): Using Bluetooth, you will be able to re-configure the iDatalink Maestro RR2 and adjust any settings you may have missed during your initial Weblink Destop setup, such as changing a SWC command. In addition, firmware & software updates can be done via a wireless Bluetooth connection. However, initial setup and flashing of the Maestro RR2 module should be done using the Weblink Destop application on your Windows PC or Mac computer (see above).

Aftermarket Radio Compatibility: The iDatalink Maestro RR2 (ADS-MRR2) is fully compatible with select aftermarket receivers with an iDatalink Serial Port and partially compatible with non-serial port aftermarket head unit. Features will vary by vehicle and type of aftermarket head unit.

  • Fully Compatible Serial Port Aftermarket Receivers: The iDatalink Maestro RR2 is fully compatible with the select Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, and Pioneer in-dash receivers which feature an iDatalink Serial Port. Click here for a list of compatible radios.
  • Partially Compatible Non-Serial Port Radios: The ADS-MRR2 is also compatible with non-serial port radios from Alpine, Axxera (Dual), Blaupunkt, Boyo, Clarion, Eclipse, Jensen, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sony.

Retained Features: The iDatalink Maestro RR2 lets your retain important factory features and functions - including Infotainment systems like Ford Sync, OnStar, and U-Connect. Other retained factory features and functions include Steering Wheel Controls, Satellite Radio (external tuners only), USB ports, Aux inputs, Bluetooth, RSE (Rear Seat Entertainment) and Backup Cameras. In addition, your vehicle's Warning Chimes and RAP are retained. In some cases the factory amplified system will be retained, while other times the factory amplifier will be bypassed.

Note: Retained features & functions will vary by vehicle.

Steering Wheel Controls: The iDatalink Maestro RR2 also lets you retain your Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep, Toyota/Scion, Honda/Acura, Fiat and Volkswagen/Audi vehicle's factory steering wheel controls when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket stereo that offers a SWC input. In addition to retaining the original steering wheel functions, you can assign secondary press & hold features to the buttons of your choice. There is only one wire that will have to be spliced when installing this interface in your compatible Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicle. However, if the vehicle was equipped with factory navigation, there will be no extra SWC wires to connect in the vehicle. You will not have to splice any wires to get SWC functionality in a compatible GM, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep, Toyota/Scion, Honda/Acura, Fiat, or Volkswagen/Audi vehicle.

Note: Steering wheel controls work with the following brands - Alpine, Axxera (Dual), Blaupunkt, Boyo, Clarion, Dual, Eclipse, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sony. Other brands are not supported.

Extra features: When installing an iDatalink Serial Port-compatible Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, or Pioneer in-dash receiver in select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep, Toyota/Scion, Honda/Acura, Fiat, and Volkswagen/Audi vehicles, the iDatalink Maestro RR2 offers extra features. The following extra features will vary by aftermarket head unit and make/model/year vehicle.

  • Climate Controls: Control your climate, defrost, and heated seat settings directly from your aftermarket head unit's LCD touchscreen.
  • Vehicle Info: Monitor your car's door status, tire pressure, read and reset engine codes and more directly from your aftermarket head unit's LCD touchscreen.
  • Gauges: Displays speed, boost, turbo, RPM, engine temperature and more directly on your aftermarket head unit's LCD touchscreen.
  • Visual Parking Assistance: Displays visual proximity indicators directly on your aftermarket head unit's LCD touchscreen for extra security.
Note: 2014-2015 Pioneer receivers with the iDatalink Serial Port and non-serial port aftermarket radios do not support these Extra features.

Navigation Outputs: The ADS-MRR2 provides a VSS (vehicle speed sense), Foot Brake, Parking Brake, and a Reverse Light output to make installing practically any aftermarket navigation radio simpler and less time consuming in select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep, Toyota/Scion, Honda, Fiat and Volkswagen vehicles.

Amp Turn-On Lead: The ADS-MRR2 provides an amp turn-on lead to turn on any factory amps when installing virtually any aftermarket head unit. Both balance & fade control are retained in many vehicles with analog amplifier systems. iDatalink Serial Port compatible head units from Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, and Pioneer also support fading in vehicles with digital amplifier systems.

Note: If you are installing an aftermarket head unit that does not feature an iDatalink serial port, then you will not be able to fade in vehicles with digital amplifier systems. In this case, adjust the factory amplifier's fader prior to installation of the new aftermarket head unit.

Programmable Outputs: The ADS-MRR2 features three programmable outputs which can be configured to control aftermarket accessories one may add to the vehicle from an iDatalink Serial Port compatible Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, or Pioneer in-dash receiver. These outputs can be configured to Latch, Toggle, Follow a CAN signal in the car (firmware dependent), or have a custom output configuration. You can even configure Delay On and Delay OFF times for each output. You can also assign a steering wheel control button from the vehicle to control one of these outputs.

Escort Radar Detector Port: When installing an iDatalink Serial Port compatible Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, or Pioneer in-dash receiver, the iDatalink Maestro RR2 features a dedicated port for Escort Radar integration with select Escort models, such as the Escort iX Ci and Escort MAX Ci (sold separately).

Installation Note: Connecting the module, vehicle specific harness, and aftermarket head unit together requires hard-wiring numerous wires by soldering or using Posi-Twist connectors.
