Video: Kenwood iDatalink "Maestro"

Ford owners can upgrade to a new Kenwood navigation receiver and still keep their factory-installed SYNC® system, thanks to this Maestro adapter from iDatalink. The Maestro integrates the Kenwood stereo into the SYNC system, so you continue to use voice commands, factory Bluetooth® connectivity, steering wheel controls, and more. Find out more in this video, and contact one of our Advisors for more info.

    I have a 2012 Ford Explorer with the Sony MyTouch Sync2 system. I want to replace the radio and was told to look at Maestro Compatible radios. The iDatalink (maestro) and Crutchfield sites only show me radios without cd players (specifically, that I need a shallow mount radio). The current cd player is mounted below the 8" OME screen as a separate unit. If I install a new radio, does the original cd player remain in the car? Will a maestro compatible radio operate the original cd player? I can't find this addressed anyplace.

    Stan, it depends on the year of your F-150 and the stereo you choose, but yes, the Maestro has that capability. Give us a call with your vehicle's full information, and an advisor can help you with more details. Or you can use our vehicle selector.

    can it replace the Ford Sony indash System in F150's and maintain climate controls and other factory dependent touch screen systems?
