So happy

2006 Ford Mustang

It does exactly what we needed it to do, and are very happy with it. My son has an '06 Mustang, and was using a cigarette lighter blue tooth receiver with an rf transmitter, to pick up the music from his phone on the radio. There were a lot of head units to choose from on Crutchfield, but he wanted to keep the stock unit. So we got him this blue tooth receiver, WHICH SOUNDS SO MUCH BETTER THAN WHAT HE WAS USING!!!!!! I'm no wrench monkey, but he was excited to install, so we went out no Christmas morning and installed it. We just used Crutchfield's instructions to remove the head unit, and the included wiring harness made it plug and play. A couple of extra perks about this model: It has an auxiliary port on the receiver, which we'll just run a 3.5mm jack into the console in case he needs to plug in. It has a USB Charging port on it to, so we'll run a charging cable too. Extra props, yinz guys got it out to us just in time for Christmas!!! Very happy, thank you.

Pros: Great blue tooth receiver Has additional aux. port and usb charging port, which was a bonus.

Cons: Microphone would be some extra cabling into the dash to hide, which is just how that works, and not really a Con. One thing that would make it better if that USB charging port on it could send music over too, but not necessary.

Great way to add bluetooth and hands free phone capabilities to older cars. Works great. Only drawback is it does not allow you to hear incoming calls and answer them unless you are in Aux mode.

Pros: Easy install, works and sounds great. Clear phone calls

Cons: Have to be in Aux mode for phone use even though USASPEC YouTube video shows it working in other modes.

Satisfied Customer

Andrew from Lakewood, CO on 4/10/2018

2006 Ford F-150

Verified customer (What's this?)

I purchased this because my wife's 2006 F150 had weird electrical issues after a local car retailer put in an after market stereo with a module so we could still use the steering wheel controls. After having a mechanic check it out they were recommending replacing the instrument cluster. I chose not to go that route and instead put the factory stereo back in. The electrical issue went away. So I decided to try this as Crutchfield has been around for decades and has a trustworthy reputation. My wife liked having a six-CD changer and the steering wheel controls but wanted blue-tooth. It has been a couple of weeks since I installed it and there have been no electrical issues with it. The Blue-tooth works perfectly and my wife gets to keep the six-CD changer and steering wheel controls. I wish I had went this route in the first place.

Pros: Works great, installation took my just over an hour but most of that time was spending getting the clips out and back onto the dash molding. LOL The wire plugs matched perfectly to the wiring harness and factory stereo.

Cons: USB port is for charging only, cannot plug in flash drives.

This unit did everything I expected and more. Took about an hour to install. Brought my Shaker 500 system into the present. Could not be happier.

Pros: Does what it says it will.

Cons: None

This module really works! It was super easy to install with the instructions supplied by Crutchfield. I had it up and running in an hour. It is better than I expected. The cell phone microphone has a good clear sound. Best of all I kept my original factory unit with its CD changer.

Pros: Easy install. Cell phone works well. Good sound with Bluetooth.

Cons: None

Great device

Easy installation with no spicing. Have been using it for a year now without any flaws. Things that could improve: To answer and end calls, you have to use the up and down arrows on the CD. If the "phone" button could be used it would be better. The space behind the original radio is slim, a routing suggesting would reduce the number of attempts. Finally a foam wrapp could be included to put around the device.

Pros: Simple install Use of original buttons and even display on the screen

Cons: Does not use the phone button on dashboard.

Bought this for the blue tooth for my phone and the aux input. It does all of this but is not a easy simple option every time I get in the truck. I only went this way because I wanted better AM reception then aftermarket radio's provide so I stuck with my factory radio. If AM is not your thing, I'd say buy a new radio

Pros: Hands free talk

Cons: Only works when the radio is on
