Ball joint adjustability

Easy adjustments

Boss isn't the first to mount a larger-than-double-DIN display on a single-DIN chassis, but they are the first to use a ball joint design that allows easy left-right and up-down adjustability. That's a great option in a family vehicle where driver preferences can vary.

Check your dash!

Important Note — The screen measures 7.275 x 4.725". Before ordering, check for possible interference with your dash, your shifter, and all other controls.

Affordable Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

With built-in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you'll find the best of what your phone offers on your radio's display. Use the BE7ACP-FT's big touchscreen to control your favorite navigation apps, access your essential music-streaming apps, and catch up on podcasts, audiobooks, and more. If you use Siri or Google Assistant regularly, you'll find that this hands-free control translates perfectly to the car.

Add a backup cam

Boss provides two dedicated video inputs so you can add a backup cam for easy reversing and a dash cam for keeping an eye on what's up front. Adjustable parking guidelines let you tweak your settings for the perfect assisted rear-view.

Build a system

The BE7ACP-FT's six preamp outputs provide ideal connections for amplifiers powering your speakers and subs, while a built-in 10-band EQ gives you the tools you need to craft the right sound for your tastes.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

You'll need a wired connection to your parking brake to access settings and other features on this receiver. Your parking brake must be connected and set in order to view video on its screen.

    Touchscreen & Steering Wheel Controls

    Two-Piece Configuration (Detachable): The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT digital multimedia receiver features a two-piece floating display configuration with an external 7" capacitive touchscreen monitor and a separate single-DIN (2") source unit. Separating the large touchscreen monitor from the chassis allows the BE7ACP-FT to be installed in a standard single-DIN (2") dash opening. Unlike other floating screen designs where the touchscreen monitor is fixed to the source unit after installation, the BE7ACP-FT's floating touchscreen monitor is detachable to deter theft (no protective case included); simply press the two buttons one the front-panel behind the monitor and disconnect the proprietary connector to detach the floating monitor from the source unit. The two components simply snap and connect back together when you are ready to use it again.

    • Floating Touchscreen Monitor: The floating 7" touchscreen monitor connects to the front-panel of the single-DIN source unit once its mounted in the dash. Depending on your vehicle's factory radio location and the location of other factory equipment, you may need to adjust the mounting position of the touchscreen monitor in order to prevent impairment of vehicle driving operations. The floating touchscreen monitor offers horizontal (+/- 15 degrees), vertical (up/down) and tilt (+/- 25 degrees) adjustability to ensure the best fit and usability in your vehicle's dash. The touchscreen monitor measures 7.275" (w) x 4.725 " (h) x 1.705" (d).
    • Single-DIN Source Unit: The source unit mounts in a standard single-DIN (2") dash opening using a vehicle specific kit (sold separately). The source unit contains all the BE7ACP-FT's input and output connections. The included floating touchscreen monitor attaches to the source unit's front-panel insert and proprietary connector.

    Notes:

    • Vehicle specific dash kit, radio replacement interface, wiring harness, antenna adapter, plus other accessories and tools needed for installation are all sold separately.
    • The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT will not fit in some vehicles with a single-DIN opening due to its large 7" touchscreen monitor interferring with your vehicle's factory equipment on the dash.

    7" Capacitive Touchscreen: The 7" floating capacitive touchscreen monitor delivers a high-quality image with highly responsive touchscreen operation. It has a resolution of 1024 x 600 (614,400 total pixels) with a high contrast ratio, crystal clear display, and vivid text. Capacitive touchscreen operations include touch, swipe, and drag.

    • Wallpaper & Background: You can select between 3 pre-loaded wallpaper backgrounds. You cannot download a custom image.
    • Dimmer & Brightness Settings: You can manually adjust the LCD touchscreen monitor's brightness for day and nighttime viewing. You can also setup the unit to have the display dim when you turn your vehicle's lights on (the orange wire of the wiring harness must be connected to your vehicle's headlight circuit).
    • Date & Time Display: The receiver offers date (Month/Date/Year) and time (12 or 24 hour) display.

    Notes:

    • For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in touchscreen monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the light green wire (within harness) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged. While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork; as well as the CarPlay and Android Auto.
    • The parking brake wire must also be connected and the parking brake engaged for certain setup functions and menu options.

    Rotary Knob and Touch Sensitive Controls: In addition to its 7 " capacitive touchscreen, there are 4 touch-sensitive buttons and a 3-way rotary knob along the bottom edge of the touchscreen that operate Power On/Off, Volume Up/Down, Voice Recognition (for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Home Menu, and Phone. The unit offers variable color button illumination; choose Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, or White.

    Beep Tone: The in-dash receiver provides an audible beep to confirm operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    Optional Steering Wheel Control: The unit features a SWC (steering wheel control) input which lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional Metra, Maestro, or PAC steering wheel control adapter (sold separately).

    Android Auto & Apple CarPlay

    Android Auto: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT receiver supports the Android Auto app for Android smartphones running OS Lollipop (5.0 or newer). Your compatible Android smartphone must be connected to the Boss receiver's USB port via the the USB cable that came with your smartphone (a USB extension cable may be required and sold separately), plus be paired via Bluetooth (your vehicle's parking brake needs to be engaged to initially setup Android Auto). Android Auto extends the Android platform into your car in a way that's purpose-built for driving and automatically brings you useful information and organizes it into a simple on-screen user interface. It's designed to minimize distraction so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Features of Android Auto include -

    • Google Assistant: The Boss receiver enhances your Android Auto experience even more by incorporating Google Assistant using the head unit's external microphone and your car speakers for voice command and text-to-speech, which makes using Android Auto and all of its integrated applications fast, easy, and safe. You will need to press the "mic" button or say "OK Google" to activate the Google Assistant. Use the Google Assistant to make a call, send a message, reply to a message, get driving directions, or listen to music.
    • Google & Waze Maps: Use Google Maps to get where you're going with on-screen maps, voice-guided navigation, live traffic information, lane guidance, and more. Select your destination by using the head unit's touchscreen or just say where you want to go through the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You can even listen to music from your Android Auto device or other connected source device while using Google Maps. If you prefer, you can switch over to a simpler version of the community-based Waze navigation app (version 4.27 or higher).
    • Phone & SMS: With Android Auto you get access to your contacts and messages through the Boss receiver while keeping your eyes on the road. Use the unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology to make a phone call, or have your text-messages read aloud to you while you concentrate on the road ahead; you can even reply to texts via voice command.
    • Music: Access your Android smartphone's music library through the Boss receiver via YouTube Music. You'll be able to browse music like you do on your smartphone with song/artist information display and album art. Use the receiver's touchscreen to select songs or just say what song you want to listen to through the head unit's external mic and Google Speech Technology. You also get access to online music and radio stations from Amazon Music, Tidal, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Slacker Radio, & Tune-In. Music apps include song and station browsing, plus song/artist information and album art or station logo. Click here for a list of all compatible app for Android Auto.

    Notes:

    • Make sure you plug in your Android smartphone to the BE7ACP-FT's rear-panel USB port labeled "Apple CarPlay/Android Auto" with a USB-IF certified cable (not compatible with the USB port labeled "USB/Charging"). Use a USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable.
    • The initial setup for Android Auto requires that your vehicle be stopped and the parking brake is engaged. You will need to connect the parking brake wire of the receiver's harness to your vehicle's parking brake circuit for the head unit to recognize that the vehicle's parking brake is engaged.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Android Auto is being used with a connected Android smartphone. You cannot have an Android Auto smartphone and Apple CarPlay iPhone plugged in at the same time.

    Apple CarPlay: Apple CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your USB-connected iPhone 5 or newer (running iOS 7.1+) with Lightning-connector in the car, while you stay focused on the road. Apple CarPlay takes the things you want to do with your iPhone while driving and integrates them into the Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT. Apple CarPlay offers an incredibly intuitive way to make calls, view maps, listen to music, and access messages from your compatible iPhone through the Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT in-dash receiver. With Apple CarPlay, you can control these functions from the BE7ACP-FT receiver's 7" touchscreen or activate Siri for minimized distraction.

    • Maps: Through Apple CarPlay, the power and simplicity of Apple Maps comes to your dashboard; complete with turn-by-turn direction, traffic conditions, and estimated travel time. You can enter a new destination or choose a favorite or recent destination using the head unit's touchscreen or by simply asking Siri. CarPlay can also predict where you most likely want to go using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. If you have iOS 12.0 or newer on your iPhone with the latest version of Google Maps or Waze, you can choose to navigate via Google Maps or Waze instead of CarPlay. Google Maps and Waze do not support Siri voice control, but will have their own proprietary voice control function which has to be accessed through a touchscreen icon on the receiver.
    • Phone: With Apple CarPlay, you can use the BE7ACP-FT's interactive touchscreen or ask Siri to make calls, return calls, and check voicemail. To dial a phone number, simply tap the "Phone" icon and Siri will ask you who you want to call. Using the touchscreen you can manually enter a phone number from the on-screen keypad, scroll through contacts, or select from recent and miss calls. In addition, you get access to your voicemails via touchscreen and Siri. When a call comes in, simply tap the "Phone" icon to answer. You'll carry on your side of the conversation through the included external microphone, while the other party is heard through your vehicle's speakers. You can emphasize or weaken the volume level the microphone. You can also select which car speaker outputs the caller audio; you can select All, Front-Left, Front-Right, or Front-Left/Right.
    • Text Messages: Apple CarPlay also lets you enjoy a better and safer way of text messaging with friends and family when you're on the road, through the Boss receiver and Siri. Through your voice commands, Siri can send, read, and reply to your text messages so that you never have to glance at your phone while behind the wheel. When a new message comes in a banner will come across the screen and Siri will read back the message for you. Text messages cannot be read or typed from the head unit's touchscreen to prevent driver distraction.
    • Music Library: CarPlay lets you access your music in your iPhone's music library, plus Apple Music from the Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT. You can browse your music by Playlist, Artist, Song, etc.. just like you would on your iPhone from the BE7ACP-FT's touchscreen. You can also use Siri to find and play back your music. The BE7ACP-FT's touchscreen will display song/artist information, as well as album art in the background. Tap the Now Playing icon on the Boss receiver's capacitive touchscreen and see song, artist, album information with Album Art displaying in the background. From the Now Playing screen you also get basic playback function, like Play/Pause, Previous Next/Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Repeat/Shuffle.
    • Audio Apps & Podcasts: CarPlay also supports additional audio apps that you've downloaded to your iPhone for enjoying music, podcasts, sports, news, and audiobooks - including Pandora, Tidal, Spotify, iHeart Radio, TuneIn Radio, Slacker Radio, Vox, Stitcher, MLB.com At Bat, CBS Radio News, NPR One, OverCast, Audiobooks.com & Audible (subscriptions and fees may app). Control them from the head unit's touchscreen or Siri just like you would from your iPhone. Your iPhone's touchscreen remains unlocked during CarPlay connection, so you are able to access additional music apps and listen to them through the Boss receiver; however these apps offer no control or display information from the head unit's touchscreen.
    • Apple HomeKit Compatible: CarPlay now supports control of Apple HomeKit enabled devices (sold separately) through Siri. Using CarPlay in your vehicle, you can ask Siri to close or open your garage door, turn on or off home lighting, increase or decrease the temperature of your thermostat, as well as control select functions of other Apple HomeKit enabled devices and appliances. Click here for a list of compatible Apple HomeKit products.
    Notes:
    • Apple CarPlay is compatible with iPhone 5 or newer running iOS 7.1 or newer.
    • Make sure your plug in your iPhone 5 or newer to the BE7ACP-FT's rear-panel USB port labeled "Apple CarPlay/Android Auto" with an Apple certified Lightning-to-USB cable (not compatible with the USB port labeled "USB/Charging"). Use a USB cable that is under 6' long and avoid using any extension cable.
    • Bluetooth hands-free phone and wireless music streaming cannot be used while Apple CarPlay is being used with a connected iPhone.
    • You cannot have an Android Auto smartphone and Apple CarPlay iPhone plugged in at the same time.
    Cellular & Data Plan Requirements: Access to CarPlay and Android Auto apps will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or Android smartphone to connect to the Internet. Your compatible Apple or Android device will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, LTE (4G), or WiFi.

    Smartphone Charging: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT will also charge (5V/1.5A) your Android Auto compatible Android smartphone or Apple CarPlay compatible iPhone while connected via USB with the vehicle's ignition switch set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth 4.2+EDR: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 4.2+EDR allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.6 (Hands Free Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.4 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Boss receiver.

    Secure Simple Pairing: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the Boss head unit without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. You can pair up to 5 devices, but only 1 device can be connected and used at a time. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically connects the unit.

    Hands-Free Communication (External Mic): The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT allows for wireless communication between the head unit and your Bluetooth enabled smartphone. Thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the BE7ACP-FT provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The receiver will display the caller's phone number and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer or end a call through the head unit's front-panel controls (or set the receiver to automatically answer the call). The BE7ACP-FT allows you to carry on the phone conversation using the included external microphone and your car audio speakers. Your music will mute automatically during a call. You can make a call using the Boss receiver's LCD touchscreen via its on-screen keypad, your phone's transferred phonebook, or a list of your most recent calls.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT allows wireless play back of stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled smartphone, tablet, or other device using a Bluetooth connection. You can control basic music playback functions, like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track from the Boss head unit (advanced music browsing will still be done from your Bluetooth source device). The unit will also display song/artist information (no Album art).

    Note: When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    USB/AV/Camera Connectivity

    USB MSC Playback: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT is equipped with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port attached to the rear-chassis via a hardwired 39" pigtail (labeled "USB/Charging"). The USB port allows for connection of a USB mass storage class device; such as a USB thumbdrive (up to 32GB) formatted in FAT32. The unit supports playback of a variety of music, video, and photo files loaded onto a compatible USB msc device. You can search by folder or file, control playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), well as view song/artist information - including album art. USB portable devices that can be charged via USB will be charged when plugged into the receiver's USB port (5V/1.5A), and the vehicle's ignition switch is set to ACC or On. The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT supports the following audio,video, and photo files loaded onto a USB MSC device.

    Media Type USB MSC
    Playable File Types Audio MP3, WMA, WAV, FLAC
    Video AVI, MKV, WMV
    Photo JPEG, PNG, BMP

    Note: This USB port (labeled "USB/Charging") is not compatible with Apple iOS devices, Android devices, USB hubs, or card-readers.

    AV Input: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT features a rear-panel AV input which consists of a composite video jack and stereo RCA jacks for connecting an external portable audio/video source.

    Dual Camera Inputs: The Boss Elite B7ACP-FT features dual camera inputs that consist of composite video jacks. There is a rear view camera input and a front view camera input. Cameras sold separately (see Accessories Tab).

    • Rear View Camera: When an optional rear view camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is displayed on the integrated 9" touchscreen monitor when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (purple/white wire of harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse gear circuit). Automatic video switching can be set to 0.1, 0.5, 1, or 2 seconds. The unit will also display on-screen guidelines to assist you when backing up.
    • Front View Camera: The BE7ACP-FT also features a second composite video camera input that can be used for connecting a front camera or dash cam (sold separately). The front view camera input is manually selected from the head unit's touchscreen (no auto switching).
    Note: The camera feature is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the cameras when backing-up. In addition to using the cameras, always look around you to make sure everything is clear when manuevering your vehicle.

    20W x 4Ch Amp: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT receiver is equipped with a 20 watt (RMS) x 4 channel amplifier.

    6Ch/4V Pre-outs: The Boss Elite BE7ACP-FT features front, rear and subwoofer 4.0-volt pre-outs. The front and rear speaker pre-outs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer pre-outs output are non-fading.

    EQ: The receiver offers 6 EQ presets - User, HipHop, Pop, R&B, Rock, and Jazz. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 10-band EQ (32, 63, 125, 250, 500, 1k,2k, 4k, 8k 16k Hz) from -6dB to +6dB.

    Loudness: The Loudness feature enhances high & low frequencies at lower volume levels.

    Source Level: You can independently adjust the source level (0-32) of the Radio, USB, Bluetooth, AV In, Android Auto, and CarPlay for smoother volume level transition between sources.

    Greetings Willi, and thank you for your question. The Boss radios do not have any climate control capability. Some stereos with certain wire interfaces can however. If your factory radio display now has the climate controls, its very possible we can retain them. Please call one of our advisors at 800-324-9695 to check on your options.

    Why is a LOC required as part of the install kit if this head unit has 6 channels of line out built in?
    [ Andrew  Jan 17, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Good question, Andrew. The pre-outs on the Boss are designed to be used with aftermarket component amplification. Sometimes with certain installs, a separate line output converter (that can be adjusted) is needed for a factory amplified sound system to sound right. A big advantage of our packages is that when you enter your vehicles specifics into our online Vehicle Guide (in the link below) we make sure that you get exactly what you need for a smooth install! https://www.crutchfield.com/m_266150/Car-Stereos.html

    How is the FM radio reception for distant stations? Specs do not list FM sensitivity.
    [ Kenneth  Jan 01, 2023 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Reception is good on the Boss BE7ACP-FT Kenneth but compared to a factory OEM radio any aftermarket unit will have slightly less reception. We see folks using the Carplay and Android Auto features on the Boss to stream their favorite stations often as well, its bang for the buck and features cannot be beaten at this price. If you rely on listening to distant radio stations specifically you may want to consider something like the Kenwood Excelon DMX958XR in the link below. If a standard Double Din size radio can fit in your specific vehicle, the Kenwood has a strong built-in tuner and can pick up HD radio signals as well as having an HD screen! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_113DMX958X/Kenwood-Excelon-DMX958XR.html

    Do all Boss multimedia receivers use the same wiring colors and codes? I have an older BOSS I bought from you for my Lincoln Navigator and after many calls to tech support and in and out- including them shipping me a new unit, I needed to cut the harness and wire by color. After that it was great. I am reluctant to buy an upgraded unit with my cut and wired system unless the color codes are the same and I can just do one for one.
    [ Gary  Dec 30, 2022 ]
    1 answer

    You should be able to upgrade here, Gary. There can be differences in the color coding, but Boss does label each wire as well with a small tag that describes function. You can almost see them in the 8th product photo if you zoom in a bit. This makes splicing your new radio on as easy as possible. As with any order from Crutchfield, if you have any issues with install you can take advantage of our lifetime Technical Support.

    This is a close one here, Robert. These units do have adjustable swivel and tilt, and they could potentially interfere with the dash or shifter sometimes, we just quality them for fit inside the dash. For your 1996 Cherokee it looks too close to call by eye, sadly. I do have the screen protrusion from the radio's chassis listed at 2.125 inches. I would take an accurate measurement from the face of the radio out (confirming if 2.125" will clear the top and right-side part of the dash overhang with the screen). Worst case scenario is anything that absolutely will not fit can be returned within 60-days for a refund. I hope this helps!

    With this sweet Boss BE7ACP-FT radio you will need to plug your phone into the USB for Carplay mirroring, Andrew. You can always add something like this CRUX ACP-WLX Wireless Apple Carplay adapter I've linked below, we love em! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_249ACPWLX/CRUX-ACP-WLX.html

    Q
    Will this work with steering wheel controls on 2017 Jeep Wrangler?
    [ Andy  Jul 03, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    A
    If you are planning on installing this sweet Boss BE7ACP-FT in your 17 Jeep, we can pair you with exactly the gear you need Andy. This PAC RP4-CH11 harness I've linked below for you will retain steering wheel audio controls when used with the Boss, but it will NOT retain the Factory hands free cell phone interface, replacing that with the onboard Bluetooth built into the Boss radio instead. When you use our Vehicle Guide in the second link below, we will pair all the install gear you'll need with the correct harness, and we even give you a discount on pairing everything together! You can always give us a call too at 1-800-324-9695 and an Advisor can help put your package together if you prefer! https://cwww.crutchfield.ad.crutchfield.com/p_541RP4CH11/PAC-RP4-CH11-Wiring-Interface.html https://www.crutchfield.com/m_266150/Car-Stereos.html

    Good question, Larry! We have Boss listing this unit as about a 2.125" protrusion from the dash. This can be a little bit more or less depending on your particular install, I hope this helps!

    There are two USB ports attached to the back of this radio. One of these USB ports is for use with a smartphone for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The other is only for charging and playing files from a USB memory device.

    This unit does not have built in GPS, no. It can use your phones navigation applications ( Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze) when connected via USB and connected via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Note that this requires a cell data plan, and subscription.

    Q
    Can the screen be turned off and still allow for audio playback while the screen is off?
    [ Josh  Apr 21, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    A
    I don't think you can power this system down and still hear music. However, I just found out that you can remove the head unit (say put it in your trunk while parking) and when you start your car, the last radio station you were listening to will play. You can even control volume with the steering wheel control if you installed that option. There are settings to dim the display or put it into "night mode" if it's distracting while driving at night.

    Is this unit compatible with XM radio?
    [ Chris  Apr 20, 2022 ]

    A
    It does not have built in XM capability. You would need to connect an XM compatible receiver to the RCA input or stream XM from your phone.
    [ Anthony  Apr 20, 2022 ]
    A
    Since it is CarPlay enabled, you can play XM through the App on your phone. Also, if you want to convert wired CarPlay to wireless CarPlay there are dongles you can purchase to connect to the USB to make it wireless. I'm also fairly certain that you can download apps on this unit, if I remember correctly.

    No, i don't believe it is, but I'm not 100% sure. I'd suggest calling Crutchfield support and they'll be able to look up the specs for you.

    It depends on the vehicle you installing it in. I bought it for a 2012 ram 3500 and I needed a harness to be able to use the steering wheel buttons. Sold separately. Plus the trim kit.

    When i purchased this it came with everything. I paid the extra for the pre wiring for the harness. It was basically plug and play
    [ SELDON  Jan 31, 2022 ]

    Not sure what you mean by everything. It comes with the harness that you can splice into your factory wiring, a hands-free mic, and all the hardware you need to mount but I don't think it's a universal mount. If you want an easier install, you'll need an adapter that you can plug into your factory harness. You might also need a LOC if you have a factory amp., a mounting kit, etc. I highly suggest calling Crutchfield so they can help you figure out what you need to install this in your vehicle.
    [ Allen  Jan 29, 2022 ]

    You will need a wiring harness to connect to your car's factory radio wires and a radio bracket to fit your new radio. If you want to retain steering wheel button controls, you will need a steering wheel control interface.

    This radio comes with the wires to plug into the back of the radio, it however doesn't come with the wires that plug directly into your factory wire harnes. Those wires would be the additional parts that crutchfield sells and pop up on computer screen if you put your car info in prior to looking at head units. Depending on your vehicle you may need antenna adapter or even additional parts to hook up steering wheel control, if applicable
