Product Research


Overview: The iSimple PGHFD1 Media Gateway harness is designed to connect the iSimple PXAMG Media Gateway Interface Module (541PXAMG, sold separately) to select Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles for connection of iPod, Auxiliary source or HD Radio tuner (541HDTR, sold separately). The PGHFD1 harness along with the PXAMG (sold separately) allows audio playback, audio control and text display of your connected iPod or HDTR HD Radio tuner on select Ford/Lincoln/Mercury factory headunits.

Note: The PGHFD1 cannot be used as a stand-alone adapter; it requires the PXAMG (541PXAMG, sold separately) to connect to your factory radio.

Vehicle Compatibility: The PGHFD1 harness retains the original system features such as satellite radio, rear seat entertainments, and most steering wheel controls (if equipped). The PGHFD1 harness is compatible with select 2005 to 2008 Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles (may require additional 541PGHFD1A adapter harness). Your Ford, Lincoln or Mercury factory radio must be touch-screen, or feature an AUX or SAT button.
