Made for your Mustang

You've got your heart set on a new touchscreen GPS receiver, but you really want to keep your Mustang's dash looking good. Now, iDatalink's KIT-MUS1 factory integration package (along with their Maestro RR adapter, sold separately) gives you everything to need to install an iDatalink-ready car stereo in your dash and wire it up to your Mustang. Best of all, you'll retain the use of your steering wheel audio controls, climate controls, and the Ford SYNC™ system, plus add some very cool features along the way.

A fit in the dash

iDatalink's KIT-MUS1 integration adapter includes a dash console that matches the fit and finish of your Mustang's dash. You'll retain the use of your Mustang's LCD display, which provides song and title information, station information, and caller ID for hands-free calling with Bluetooth®. You can operate your climate controls from your receiver's touchscreen and the customizable buttons built into the iDatalink dash console. This kit also includes two integrated USB ports that work with your receiver.

Wire it up

First, you connect the iDatalink Maestro RR adapter to your PC using its included USB cable, visit www.idatalinkmaestro.com/plugin and follow the instructions. Once you've indicated you're using the KIT-MUS1 kit and the Maestro RR has been "flashed," you're ready for the installation. Next, you'll either solder or crimp the wiring adapter that's included in this package to your new receiver's wiring, just like you would with any wiring harness or wiring adapter from Crutchfield.

The KIT-MUS1 integration adapter comes with simple plug-in connectors for the iDatalink Maestro RR adapter and your Mustang's factory wiring harness. You'll also get a mono subwoofer RCA connection which directly plugs into the subwoofer channel of your Mustang's amplifier. With Mustangs that don't have the SYNC™ system, you can use the adapter's AUX IN RCA connectors to link the Mustang's factory auxiliary input to an auxiliary input on your receiver.

The coolest part

Once you've installed the Kenwood or Alpine in your Mustang, you'll be able to use your receiver's touchscreen to check your tire pressure, battery voltage, and "door ajar" warnings. You'll also 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.

Compatibility Notes: The iDatalink KIT-MUS1 factory integration adapter must be used with the iDatalink Maestro RR adapter and an iDatalink-ready car stereo (sold separately). This adapter is only compatible with 2010-2014 Mustangs without the factory navigation radio.

In combination with the iDatalink Maestro RR (794ADSMRR, sold separately), the KIT-MUS1 lets you replace the factory non-navigation radio of your 2010-2014 Ford Mustang with an aftermarket Alpine, JVC, Kenwood, Sony, or Pioneer receiver equipped with the iDatalink Serial Port.

The installation harness contains three Molex connectors which plug into your Ford Mustang's factory radio harness. On the other end of the harness are four multi-pin connectors which plug into the Maestro RR interface module (sold separately).

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
The MUS1 kit is needed to retrofit a double din aftermarket stereo to a non-navigation Ford Mustang Shaker system. It also adds two interchangeable ports and a storage slot underneath the stereo. The ports will need be connected to the stereo from the rear and can be either USB, HDMI or 3.5mm.This eliminates most hard buttons from original dash and transfers them to digital display on the aftermarket stereo. [ Miguel  Mar 07, 2019 ]

From all the reviews I've read, I think this will make for a factory installed look. Lots of nice features with this. [ DANNY  Feb 06, 2019 ]

This unit allows you to keep your stock display. The Scosche kit displays "Mustang" on this screen. The Metra kit eliminates this display all together. Only this kit keeps compass, time and temperature readings. It's also supposed to be used to display performance stats, tire pressure info etc when used with the right headunit and wiring kit.

I believe it only comes in gray from idatalink for the mustangs. I got mine a few years ago for a 2014 . I don't know what year you have. There might even be other companies that offer one in black. If not You might be able to paint it or even get it wrapped black.

Q
does this keep the sync functions? like on the steering wheel when you press the voice command button
[ bryce  Jul 04, 2018 ]

A
It sure can! There is a wire that must be spliced from this kit to the stock wiring to make it happen. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
[ Paul  Jul 11, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
This kit retains the green single DIN display at the top, correct? Can anyone tell me if the clock and radio/song info are synchronized with the touchscreen unit that is installed? In other words, if I change to time on the touchscreen, does it automatically change at the top?
[ Shannon  Dec 15, 2017 ]

A
I used a Kenwood head unit in mine and it did. When playing something it would show source and song title (for example, "Bluetooth" or "USB").
[ Brian  Dec 15, 2017 ]
A
Yes, Yes and YES! It's awesome. The more expensive Scosche verson just says "mustang GT" or "V6 Mustang" when it's playing - so annoying. But this beauty will display the song name and artist when you're on MP3s and it'll show the date and time on start up. In other words, it works the way Ford always intended the screen to work stock.
[ KENDALL H  Dec 15, 2017 ]
A
Yes, it's synchronized
[ Dillon  Dec 15, 2017 ]
A
Yes they are connected and do sync with each other.
[ John  Dec 15, 2017 ]
Q
Do the hard buttons light up? Like when headlights are on? If so, do they dim with the dash lights?
[ Bill  Jun 22, 2016 ]
3 answers
A
The lights are always on.
[ Nicholas  Apr 02, 2017 ]
A
Yes. Not sure about dimming but they do turn on/off with the dash lights.
