About the iDatalink Connec KIT-MUS1 Factory Integration Adapter
Made for your Mustang
Made for your Mustang
You've got your heart set on a new touchscreen GPS receiver, but you really want to keep your Mustang's dash looking good. Now, iDatalink's KIT-MUS1 factory integration package (along with their Maestro RR adapter, sold separately) gives you everything to need to install an iDatalink-ready car stereo in your dash and wire it up to your Mustang. Best of all, you'll retain the use of your steering wheel audio controls, climate controls, and the Ford SYNC™ system, plus add some very cool features along the way.
A fit in the dash
iDatalink's KIT-MUS1 integration adapter includes a dash console that matches the fit and finish of your Mustang's dash. You'll retain the use of your Mustang's LCD display, which provides song and title information, station information, and caller ID for hands-free calling with Bluetooth®. You can operate your climate controls from your receiver's touchscreen and the customizable buttons built into the iDatalink dash console. This kit also includes two integrated USB ports that work with your receiver.
Wire it up
First, you connect the iDatalink Maestro RR adapter to your PC using its included USB cable, visit www.idatalinkmaestro.com/plugin and follow the instructions. Once you've indicated you're using the KIT-MUS1 kit and the Maestro RR has been "flashed," you're ready for the installation. Next, you'll either solder or crimp the wiring adapter that's included in this package to your new receiver's wiring, just like you would with any wiring harness or wiring adapter from Crutchfield.
The KIT-MUS1 integration adapter comes with simple plug-in connectors for the iDatalink Maestro RR adapter and your Mustang's factory wiring harness. You'll also get a mono subwoofer RCA connection which directly plugs into the subwoofer channel of your Mustang's amplifier. With Mustangs that don't have the SYNC™ system, you can use the adapter's AUX IN RCA connectors to link the Mustang's factory auxiliary input to an auxiliary input on your receiver.
The coolest part
Once you've installed the Kenwood or Alpine in your Mustang, you'll be able to use your receiver's touchscreen to check your tire pressure, battery voltage, and "door ajar" warnings. You'll also 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.
