About the iDatalink Connec KIT-MUS1 Factory Integration Adapter

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.

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.

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

[ 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.
[ Chris  Jun 22, 2016 ]
A
Sorry this was a gift to my son.
[ TERI A  Jun 22, 2016 ]
Q
Will the new JBL stereo work with this set up? It says Kenwood and Pioneer so I want to be sure before I commit.
