Crutchfield customer from Norwalk, CT on 6/26/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Since it appears to be a custom service based on the vehicle, head-unit and adapter box, I had expected it to include all the hardware in my order. The N520 camera cable *should* have connected to the head unit with a single connector, but it didn't so it should have been included into the bundle.

Pros: Definitely worth the price

Cons: It's a lot of bound wires to shove into the hole in the dash (not that I could have or would have done better).

Not well thought out, too bulky and wires too short so they bunch up

Crutchfield customer from Sparks Glencoe, MD on 1/24/2019

2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Instructions are non existent for this harness. If you hook up all of these wires as the IData manual states, you will have issues. Mute wire doesn't get hooked up, along with a few other wires, and none of this is mentioned in the instructions. Incredibly bulky harness that leaves very very little room to fit large Double DIN head unit in radio cavity. Not well thought honestly.

Pros: The connectors fit onto their counterpart connectors

Cons: Way too bulky and not thought out well by the manufacturer. Instructions are missing for the handful of wires that are not to be connected to the radio harness. Because all the wires are the same length, all your connections are at the exact same spot, which makes it very bulky, all at one spot, making it even more difficult to fit in a tight dashboard. They used to make the radio harnesses a lot longer back in the day for this reason, but apparently not anymore

John from Buffalo, NY on 12/23/2018

2010 Ford Escape

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've installed many car stereos before and this Maestro kind of had me second guessing the purchase. The wiring required me to cut a factory harness wire in my 2010 Ford Escape which I was skeptical about at first. But I called Crutchfield and they reassured me it's what it says in the instructions. Once everything was installed, I now have tire pressure loadouts, check engine codes, and other extras not on my current dash. It was well worth it after it was all said and done.

A great plug and play must have. But you will have to wire the after market radio harness to this. Don't let the extra wires confuse you. Would be even better if it were a dedicated complete harness to a specific radio to specific vehicle.

Pros: Does the job.

Cons: Wish it were a little more specific to the vehicle and the radio you were installing. ie. 100% plug and play.

This makes installation so much easier! Without this harness it would have taken hours to splice into the factory harness hoping to get it right.

Pros: Makes installation significantly easier

Cons: Even though it is Ford specific it is still somewhat universal so the extra wires/connectors are slightly annoying.

Edward from Rio Rancho, NM on 2/9/2018

2009 Ford Escape

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This applies to not only this adapter, but for the Maestro RR as well. My 2009 Ford Escape w/ SYNC, no NAV. For the most part, putting together the harness for the Kenwood and Maestro went well. However, some portions of the wiring diagrams were not so clear resulting in many calls to Crutchfield and iData Technical Support. In regards to the SYNC Steering Wheel controls, there was this Pink/Red wire you are suppose to connect to a vehicle's steering wheel side harness wire you cut. My calls gave me three different ways to do this. Even after trying all three ways, not all of my steering wheel controls functioned. Voice and Phone. After a day of phone calls, troubleshooting, re-flashing the Maestro unit multiple times. Same issue. I finally gave up and attached the microphone that came with the Kenwood into the unit for voice, and just use the phone features on the Kenwood. Although I'm not 100% happy with the final results, everything I wanted to have function, now does, one way or another.

What is there to say? It's just a connector, has everything you need for Maestro RR connection, plenty of wire for anything that needs the stretch. Recommended for anyone using the Maestro RR unit.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Got this to install a JVC KW-V820BT in my 2012 F150 XLT. Had a little issue with one of the keys on a connector, but called iDatalink support and they were great. Wanted to verify that I was plugging it into the correct place on the Maestro and they assured me that it was. A little bit more force than I would normally use on that type of connector and it popped right in. One thing that my harness came with that is not documented or pictured is that my harness came with an ODBII male connector on the ODB leads. It made it so much easier to just run that down to my ODBII port and plug it in rather than tapping into those wires. Now if I need to go through emissions testing I can unplug the connector and know that I have not modified the ODB leads in any way. Great little surprise. Harness can get to be a bit of a jumble if you arent careful in how you splice it to the radio harness. But just a little patience and it does lay out just right.

Pros: Easy instructions ODBII Harness Connector Connected up just fine Excellent Manufacturer support

Cons: Have to be a bit careful making connections to radio harness to make sure wires lay out properly. Some connectors may need more force than should be necessary to connect to Maestro.

I purchased the ADS/RR and F01 integration adapter and harness for my 2011 F150 Lariat Base radio and I can't say enough good things about it. After a few setbacks, some my fault, some not, this combination works perfectly. Microsoft Sync functionality is retained plus all the new features of my new head unit (Kenwood DDX-9703S0). Together they make an unbeatable combination. Since I did have a few issues getting it right, my advise is to work closely with Support, be patient and take you time.

Jimmy from Rogers, AR on 10/31/2016

2011 Ford F-150 Raptor

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I expected the harness to be more "plug and play" considering that I also purchased the iDataLink device that corresponds with my truck and stereo. Works well, but I would have expected the connections among these devices to be more "universal" or standardized by now. It's been 20 years since I previously installed a stereo and this one required as much wiring and work as they did back then. Pioneer, Kenwood, Alpine et al should get together with OEM manufacturers and standardize all this stuff, not just for consumers but for all the other benefits to their industry. (Standardization has helped the computer industry a great deal.)

Pros: Does the job

Cons: Still requires hard-wiring.

Must have if using iDatalink Maestro RR

Kevin from FL on 6/13/2016

2014 Ford F-150 XLT

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a must have part if you are using a iDatalink Maestro RR. The package did not come with a wiring diagram but one is easy enough to get online on iDatalink's website. The length of the wires is plenty, too much in my opinion, I would have preferred a more condensed harness. Harness is bulky for my taste but I was able to get everything tucked into my dash. With that said, the wire colors matched the wire harness from my aftermarket headunit perfectly, no second guessing if I had it connected correctly.

Pros: Wire color matching.

Cons: Length of wire harness to long, A lot of unused wires. Harness is bulky for my taste but I was able to get everything tucked into my dash.

Expedition Driver from Denver on 4/1/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've done many MANY Crutchfield installs. Usually they're easy to do. Previously it was three or four quick connects and done. This time, not so much. There were over 25 wires that I did Not need to even connect. The documentation isn't claer on this, and I had to check online for solutions for wiring diagrams that the Tech Support didn't have. And I was required to cut off all 8 RCA connections and use twist connects to attach to my Kenwood. Lucky for me I'd doubled the order of the Crutchfield twist connections or this would have been a tangle of twisted wire and electrical tape.

Pros: In a dozen previous installations these harnesses are amazing. I will continue to purchase them even after this most recent installation. Tech Support ended up on speed-dial for this installation. They knew what they were doing, but I think it was too much time spent for both of us on the phone.

Cons: As above, having poor SPECIFIC wiring diagrams to include the iDatalink Maeastro, in a Ford with a Kenwood resulted in hours on the phone with Tech Support.

Required, but mediocre instructions

rw from Virginia on 1/11/2016

This is required to use the iDatalink Maestro module in my 2012 Expedition. Makes installation a snap, but the instructions could be better. Not happy that I needed to cut RCA connectors off the high level speaker connections, or needing to cut a key wire in the center console for proper Sync operation. Not exactly "plug and play" like the description says.

Pros: Makes installation easier with proper connectors for factory harnesses.

Cons: Need to modify both the harness and car wiring to install properly.

This harness makes connecting your Stereo / idatalink module stupid simple. Ive purchased this combination twice -- last summer to install a Kenwood Nav unit in my 2013 Mustang - and again this year for my 2013 F-150 and Kenwood Nav unit. Two changes I liked immediately were 1) a quick connect pair of wires into a pigtail connector for the ODBII so no more cutting into your harness - they also added RCA jacks to the speaker leads so you can use the low level amp outputs (if you are retaining factory amps) or if no amps just cut off the RCA jacks and connect to stereo speaker leads on and your good.. Everything is color coded to match original wiring so you would really have to not have a clue to mess this up.

Pros: Simple - Quick - makes connections neat

Cons: none

2007 Lincoln mkx (no thx, no nav) - nope

snazzypants from Ohio on 4/14/2015

2007 Lincoln MKX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I feel bad rating this a 1 star, but it says it will work for 2007 Lincoln mkx, (no THX, no nav) and it just doesn't. So I believe this 1 star should deservingly lower the products total average, and Crutchfield should remove this recommendation. The Lincoln accessory power comes into a pin that does not exist in the harness connector. I had to cut wires out of the connector for unused wires to steal pins and move them to the appropriate locations. I unfortunately wanted to do this and get my stereo working, rather than wait for shipping and get my money back. Further, the speaker wires were not going to the harness instructed places either. Would've been much happier just cutting cutting off the Lincoln side connector and working with wire nuts to get the job done. With that said, this product could work beautifully for another vehicle. Maybe Lincoln mkx should be bashed a bit for going out of its way to ignore the standard configuration, but this product is simply a wire configuration supposed to bridge the gap between your new stereo and a 2007 Lincoln MKX...it wasted my time, got to keep my money, and most of all...it doesn't do that.

Pros: Didn't work for my car, could work for other types.

Cons: Simply didn't work for my car when it said that it did...that's a big con for product that isn't necessary for someone with a bit of electrical knowledge.

It works. A bit overkill for a base model Mustang with no factory amp, no Sync and no steering controls but everything does hook up just fine.

It's kind of a mess of wires and leads and it was easy to lose track of what goes where.

Not much to say... It's wire and it works.Obviously a must have if integrating the iDatalink with a Ford. The harness came with RCA plugs for all of the speaker connections too. A little different than the picture, but explained in the Details description. Even though the head unit I was installing had RCA connections for the front and rear speakers, connecting it to a 2011 Ford Focus requires cutting the ends off of the RCA plugs for the speaker wires and splicing it into the aftermarket radio speaker leads. Leaving only the Sub-woofer RCAs to connect up.

Pros: Makes for an easy install once all of the connections to the radio are made.

Q
Will this work on a 2015 Ford f250 xl, with cd player, nothing else?
[ Aaron  Jul 17, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Hi Aaron, thank you for your question! I have pulled up a 2015 Ford F-250 with CD Player, and I do show the Maestro harness as being an option for you. There will be an additional module that you will need to use along side of this harness. Please chat with an Advisor online, or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, they'll be able to pull up your vehicle, and insure that you get all of the installation gear you'll need.

2011 f350 dpx503bt bought. Will this harness maintain sync and steering wheel controls? What needs to be done for wiring.
[ Jeff  Jun 11, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
The ability to retain steering wheel controls with aftermarket receivers will be determined by the receiver you are using and the vehicle you have. For full information on this type of integration (including the parts you will need) please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

[ Jason  Dec 07, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
Will this work to BYPASS the factory amps in an 09 Mustang with the shaker 500?Or is there a harness I can get to do so?
[ Jerry  Jan 15, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Sorry. No. While this is a recommended harness option for the 2009 Mustang with Shaker 500, it requires the iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR integration module which will retain the stock amplifier: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_794ADSMRR/item.html We do not have any pre-fabricated harnesses that will bypass the original factory amp.

Q
Is the maestro module neccessary or an optional addition?
[ kaehe  Mar 31, 2016 ]

A
To make it work with the steering wheel buttons on my F150 it was. It was easier to program than other modules as well.
[ Karl  Apr 04, 2016 ]
A
IF you have a vehicle with steering wheel controls and don't want to lose those functions it is highly recommended. I have it and it works great.
[ MARK  Apr 01, 2016 ]
A
You will need the module. By this kit alone I was not able to seperate a 12v source
[ robert  Apr 01, 2016 ]
A
It simplifies installation for use of your steering wheel controls compared to other means, but is not necessary for use of a new head unit. Since you connect it via USB and download the software for your vehicle and just plug and play, too will not have to play the click to program game.
[ Jonathan  Apr 01, 2016 ]
Q
I my son got me the pioneer Avic 6100nex. I want to retain steering controls. Is this the right adapter or do I need a different one. If this is correct one do I have to get any additional items to retain swc?
