About the iDatalink KIT-MFT1

Install a new radio in your Ford truck

Your 2011-up Ford is a great vehicle, but its dashboard makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. The iDatalink KIT-MFT1 factory system adapter (along with the Maestro ADS-MRR module, sold separately) gives you everything you need to install an iDatalink-ready double-DIN (4" tall) car stereo and wire it up to your Ford vehicle with its "My Ford Touch" radio. This package retains your amplifier and backup camera (if equipped), along with your steering wheel audio controls.

iDatalink to the rescue

The package includes a replacement media hub which provides 2 USB ports, a HDMI jack, and a 3.5mm AUX input. You'll also retain the fader control and full functionality of your factory amplifier, as well as 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, and you'll even be able to check the engine codes when a warning light comes on. The module also allows you to access the vehicle's factory settings to control customization options for lighting, door locks, and other features.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
It allows me to put a double din radio in My 2013 Ford Taurus with My touch 8" non Sony factory location and retain all factory functions. [ James  Apr 21, 2020 ]
A
Matched my interior [ Rory  Mar 05, 2020 ]

7 questions already asked

Q
Is there a version of this that allows installation of a single DIN stereo like the new floating screens that Alpine and Pioneer have out?
[ fshrlou  Jul 01, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
yes it has a blanking plate for single din units. (they still need to have the iDatalink port on the back.
[ Salvador  Jul 02, 2020 ]
A
Yes is allows to install, I install Alpine ilx-309 to my f250 2014 replaced OEM 8" Sony head unit, without any problems or modifications
[ Giedrius  Jul 01, 2020 ]
Q
I used this kit to install a Kenwood Double Din in my 2018 XL but now I get interference on my backup camera. Anyone else?
[ Art  May 21, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Yes if you mean the screen is fuzzy. Cameras have to get a good ground to be clear. Now its going through the RR so that adds something to the system. Changing the efficiency of the ground. If you can identify the ground on the camera RCA (Crutchfield or IdataLink may be able to help you if you cant). Then splice in to it and go straight to a good ground or find the ground wire at the camera itself and go straight to ground the picture should clear up. If not I suggest a new camera but I bet the ground is the issue. Hope this helps!
[ James  May 22, 2020 ]
A
I did not have any problems. Works great. I do know that the ford cameras have issues. If it is glitching out it may be a camera problem. I had to replace mine a while back for that issue.
[ BRIAN D  May 21, 2020 ]
Q
What size double din will fit in this adapter??????
[ Julio  May 12, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Any, as long as you have the space behind it. My mustang had Very Little Space so I had to do A LOT of trimming to make a standard Kenwood Fit.
[ Salvador  May 12, 2020 ]
A
I believe all double Din are the same size in width and height but vary in depth... I bought it for the Kenwood 960S and it fit perfect.
[ Rick  May 12, 2020 ]
Q
will this fit a 2019 mustang with a 4inch screen?
[ sean  Mar 22, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
Probably not but also not certain. I put it in a 2017 Ford F150 that had the 8" screen and it worked great. For my truck, I would have had to get an entirely new bezel if it had the 4" screen.
[ Rick  Mar 23, 2020 ]
A
No. The 4 inch model had a different bezel and wiring harness
[ Salvador  Mar 22, 2020 ]
Q
Do you retain the factory radio controls on the dash for volume, presets, etc.?
[ Craig  Feb 04, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, although this will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.
[ Cosmo  Feb 19, 2020 ]  Staff
Q
Idata's site says the MFT1 fits all 2019 F150. Crutchfield says it is not compatible... which is it?
[ Dennis  Jan 17, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
I think I ordered that for my 2019 Ford Mustang. Don't know if it compatible with your vehicle
[ Jimmie  Feb 29, 2020 ]
A
I think it depends on if you have the large or small screen in your 2019 F150. If you have the small screen, it will not work.
[ MASON L  Jan 17, 2020 ]
Q
Is this what I'd need to install a aftermarket stereo?
[ Eric  Nov 23, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
You need that harness with the idata link meaistro.
[ Pete  Nov 25, 2019 ]
