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 ADS-KIT-MUS01 factory integration package (along with their Maestro RR adapter, sold separately) gives you everything to need to install select receivers 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 ADS-KIT-MUS01 kit includes a dash console that matches the fit and finish of your factory 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 a compatible 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 compatible receivers.
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 ADS-KIT-MUS01 kit and the Maestro RR has been "flashed," you're ready for the installation. Next, you'll either solder or crimp the wiring harness that's included in this package to your new Kenwood's receiver's wiring, just like you would with any Crutchfield wiring harness or wiring adapter.
The ADS-KIT-MUS01 kit 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 new receiver.
The coolest part
Once you've installed a compatible receiver 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 receiver's screen, and you'll even be able to check the engine codes when a warning light comes on.
Compatibility Notes: The iDatalink ADS-KIT-MUS01 kit must be used with the iDatalink Maestro RR adapter and a compatible Kenwood or Alpine receiver (See Details for receiver compatibility). This kit is only compatible with 2010-2014 Mustangs without the factory navigation radio.
