About the iDatalink KIT-FTR1 Factory System Adapter
Install a new radio in your Ford truck
Install a new radio in your Ford truck
You bought a 2015-up Ford pickup — it's a great vehicle, but its dashboard makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. The iDatalink KIT-FTR1 factory system adapter (along with the Maestro ADS-MRR module, sold separately) gives you everything you need to install an aftermarket double-DIN (4" tall) stereo and wire it up to your Ford pickup with its 4.3" My Ford radio. With any car stereo, this package retains your amplifier and backup camera (if equipped), along with your steering wheel audio controls.
iDatalink to the rescue
Install an iDatalink-compatible car stereo from Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, or Pioneer, and you'll also retain your truck's SYNC features, including hands-free calling and music streaming. You'll also retain the fader control and full functionality of your factory amplifier, along with your rear seat entertainment system (if present). You can set up gauges on your new car stereo's touchscreen to check engine performance and other vehicle data, such as tire pressure, battery voltage, and "door ajar" warnings. You'll be able to choose which gauges you'd like to appear on the screen, and you'll even be able to check the engine codes when a warning light comes on.
