This works really well in my 2011 Ford Explorer. It is nice that you customize how you want the controls to work and allows you to keep all the factory knobs and buttons working like they did before.

Pros: Keep factory controls working.

Cons: None so far.

Good bracket, minimal issues

Crutchfield customer from Maricopa, AZ on 7/24/2020

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It's just a wire harness kit...difficult not to get 5 stars. The installer didn't complain so I assume all the wires and brackets were there. The one suggestion to the manufacturer is about the USB connection. The console plugin has 2 USB ports with two USB wires running to the radio. The radio only had one USB port. That means only one of the USB ports in the console is functional. The other one is dead. I'd prefer a single wire from the radio connect to both USB ports in the console (like a hub). This is actually the first time I've seen each port requiring independent wired connections.

Pros: Easy to install, wires were long enough, looks good.

Cons: The dual USB ports require 2 USB plugs in the radio - as opposed to a single USB wire powering both USB ports.

2013 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed on a 2013 F250 King Ranch with the Sony system, the kit worked perfectly. You will need a shallow mount radio to replace the OEM and you will need to cut some of the metal around the OEM brace, however, it is very easy and straight forward. The instructions are pretty good, read the fine print, they provide some good tips. Just a note, the module that needs to be relocated on this vehicle has a 7mm screw on the back which is difficult to get to, I used a stubby gear wrench. I had no issues installing the USB module on the vehicle, and connecting it to the radio. Don't forget to order an antenna adaptor for your radio, the Ford OEM end will not work. Worth the money and time.

Pros: Easy install, good instructions, will made kit.

Cons: No Antenna adaptor

2013 Ford Taurus

Verified customer (What's this?)

This kit allowed me to install an aftermarket stereo in my 2013 Ford Taurus Limited with My Ford Touch 8" screem non Sony amplified system fairly easily. If you have no install experience it may be slightly complicated but that is more because of the specific vehicle itself. It was a breeze for me, does the integration well, and looks factory when you are done. This is not a cheap crappy kit. It is sturdy and high quality. Both Crutchfield and IDatalink give you clear helpful instructions. I would recomend it to anyone.

Pros: high quality, works well, looks good,

Cons: none yet

Excellent Option for OEM Integration of Aftermarket Head Units

Crutchfield customer from Orange, CA on 4/24/2020

2017 Ford F-250 XLT

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Finally a kit to replace the 8" Sync Screens in Fords! I've consistently had problems with the Sync system in my 2017 F-250, but there wasn't a good way to replace the unit with an aftermarket one. This is a great kit that fits very well. It requires that you also buy the Maestro, which is separate. However, this allows you to keep the stock OEM dash piece and integrates all the controls. On top of that it allows for some customization of the buttons on the dash as well as on the steering wheel. One thing I would note that - at least for my F250 - fitment of deep head units will likely be tricky. I used a shallow depth JVC unit and it fit well, but there is a LOT of wiring associated with this conversion, so you need to be patient and route them all carefully. So far, a week or so in, this has worked flawlessly. The only downside I have seen is that this system doesn't allow you to use the OEM bluetooth microphone, you have to leverage the aftermarket one.

Pros: OEM-like integration. This is as close to stock looking as you can get with an aftermarket head unit. I like that it allows you to keep the OEM heater/AC controls.

Cons: A bit pricey when you factor this kit, with the iDataLink Maestro and the aftermarket head unit May be limited in head unit selection given depth considerations A lot of wire is provided - which can be hard to deal with if you need to bundle the excess
