Note: The iDatalink Maestro HRN-RR-F01 installation harness requires the purchase of the iDatalink Maestro RR (794ADSMRR).

Vehicle Compatibility Chart: Click here for a list of compatible Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles. Or, click here to find out what works with your particular vehicle.

  • Administrative rights on your PC
  • Internet Explorer 7.0 or greater (excluding 64-bit version)

If your head unit doesn't have front and rear RCA outputs, the plugs can be cut off and hard wired to the speaker level outputs.

[ Jason  Dec 07, 2018 ]

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.

For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.

Q
Is the maestro module neccessary or an optional addition?
[ kaehe  Mar 31, 2016 ]
4 answers
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?
[ Larry  Oct 23, 2015 ]
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.
