About the iDatalink KIT-FOC1 Dash Kit

Install a new radio in your Focus

You bought a 2012-18 Ford Focus — it's a great vehicle, but its dashboard makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. The iDatalink KIT-FOC1 factory system adapter (along with the Maestro ADS-MRR module, sold separately) gives you everything you need to install an aftermarket double-DIN (4" tall) stereo and wire it up to your Focus. With any car stereo, this package retains your backup camera (if equipped), along with your steering wheel audio controls.

iDatalink to the rescue

Install an iDatalink-compatible car stereo from Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, or Pioneer, and you'll also retain your car's SYNC features, including hands-free calling and music streaming. You'll also retain the fader control and full functionality of your factory amplifier, along with your rear seat entertainment system (if present). Your climate controls will appear on your new car stereo's touchscreen, and you can set up gauges to check engine performance and other vehicle data, such as tire pressure, battery voltage, and "door ajar" warnings. You'll be able to choose which gauges you'd like to appear on the screen, and you'll even be able to check the engine codes when a warning light comes on.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-FOC1 consists of an OEM integration dash kit and vehicle harness designed specifically for select 2012-2018 Ford Focus vehicles.

Make Model Year
Ford Focus with "My Ford" Radio (4.3" Screen) 2012-2018
Focus without Sync 2012-2014
Note: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-FOC1 requires the purchase of the iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 (sold separately) and the download of a vehicle specific firmware from iDatalink's Weblink Desktop (for Windows and Mac).

OEM Grade Fit & Finish Kit: The KIT-FOC1 OEM integration kit features a factory grade fit & finish to match the contour and color of your vehicle's dash. In addition, the KIT-FOC1 comes with a convenient storage pocket to keep your smartphone device. The storage pocket includes flush-mounted dual USB ports, one HDMI port, and a 3.5mm AV input for your aftermarket receiver (if applicable).

Vehicle Harness: The iDatalink Maestro KIT-FOC includes a vehicle harness which inserts into the iDatalink Maestro RR or RR2 interface module (sold separately), plugs into your vehicle's factory radio harness, and hardwires to the harness of your new aftermarket receiver. The installation harness contains three Molex connectors which plug into your Ford Focus' factory radio harness. On the other end of the harness are four multi-pin connectors which plug into the Maestro RR or RR2 interface module (sold separately). Instead of speaker wire leads the wiring harness includes front and rear RCA jacks which either plug into your aftermarket receiver's 4-channel preouts or need to be cut-off to wire to your aftermarket receiver's harness. The wiring harness also includes a composite video connector and stereo RCA jacks which allows you to retain your vehicle's factory backup camera (if equipped) and Aux input (if equipped) when plugged in your aftermarket receiver's camera input and Aux input.

Retained Features: The follow factory features (if applicable) are retained when replacing your aftermarket head unit with a compatible iDatalink Serial Port head unit from Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, Sony, or Pioneer using the Maestro RR or RR2 Car Radio Replacement Interface module and KIT-FOC installation kit.

  • Sync System (including media, phone, and menu access)

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Because the metra kit is garbage [ Paul  Jun 10, 2020 ]
A
Picked this to go along with the Maestro ADS-MRR. The Metra wiring and dash kit for the Focus is trash, spend the extra money to get this instead. [ Jordan  Aug 01, 2019 ]
A
Said i needed it [ Mersadie  Jul 15, 2019 ]
A
I had the Scosche adapter package and dash piece. The dash piece never seemed to fit quite right, and the interface was glitchy at best (and required re-pinning for the backup camera). I'd read several good reviews on this piece and wanted the diagnostic capability Maestro makes available on my head unit, so it was a no-brainer. I just wish I'd seen this and not wasted my money on the Scosche setup in the first place. [ Christopher  Oct 22, 2018 ]
A
Compatible with my car- no Metra dash kit will work with factory steering controls + Maestro RR- Keep that in mind. After many hours of headache at the installer. [ Phillip  Jul 26, 2018 ]

Q
I have problems with my current bluetooth and sync constantly disconnecting. Did getting an aftermarket radio have a better bluetooth connection than sync?

If you did not purchase the unit from Crutchfield, then you may want to contact the manufacturer.

Yes I've had numerous problems out of sync with factory radio with Bluetooth I switched to an after market and it's loads easier. Sometimes you have to manually connect it but no issues with it disconnecting. But forget sync on your phone or they will counteract each other. I recommend the idata link kit it's more expensive but worth it
[ Kenneth  Aug 22, 2019 ]
A
I can't really speak for Sync bluetooth connectivity, since I only used it for about a month before upgrading my stereo two years ago, but I've never had a problem with either of my aftermarket radios. Previously I had an Alpine CDE-W264BT which was great, but the Metra dash kit and wiring harnesses were absolute trash. I upgraded to this, and wanted an idatalink compatible radio so I bought the Kenwood DDX276BT. I've had it for about three weeks now and the bluetooth works great.
[ Jordan  Aug 22, 2019 ]
Q
Will this work on my focus st with sync2?
[ Sim  Aug 05, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
Partially. I was able to hot wire the hazards and backup camera. Steering wheel controls dont work, nor does the automatic parking or collision system.
[ Leland  Aug 05, 2019 ]
A
It did for me, but without the small screen it's hard to use the Sync 2 features anymore. I ended up unpairing all the phones. Once the new head unit was in place, Apple CarPlay did much more than Sync2 anyway.
[ Cecil  Aug 05, 2019 ]
A
Yes but only on the Focus St1 package. If you have the touch screen it won't work.
[ Aaron   Aug 05, 2019 ]
A
Hello! I purchased this kit along with the IDATALINK Meistro RR module. The kit does not include the module which will have to be purchased separately. You can retain Sync with the module . Make sure the Head unit you purchase has an IDATALINK port and you programmed the module correctly. On a side note with a pioneer W8400NEX Sync was glitchy. If you plan on ditching Sync turn it off on the stock radio before installing the new unit and unpair it from your phone as the new radio and Sync will have 2 different bluetooth connections. Your mileage may vary depending on retaining climate controls as my car did not have automatic climate zones.
[ JOSEPH  Aug 05, 2019 ]
Q
Will this fit my 2012 ford focus se?
[ Christian  Jul 04, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
It fits a 14 ST. Not sure about the 2012.
[ Charles  Jul 05, 2019 ]
A
Yes it should but verify with crutchfirld tech.
[ Frank  Jul 04, 2019 ]
A
I have a 14 Focus, it fits great. Should work fine on your 2012, it's the same dash. Kurt
[ kurt  Jul 04, 2019 ]
A
Yes it will.
