Video: Kenwood iDatalink "Maestro"

I've been a camera nut all my life, so it makes sense I'd end up being a video producer. Of course, it has been a roundabout journey for me, as I started at Crutchfield in 2007 writing about car audio gear. Over the years I've learned about all the electronic items we sell, and it is my job to make sure we are making videos that you will find useful, whether you're shopping for something specific or trying to install some new gear yourself. My job is a lot of fun because I get to play around with all the cool stuff you see on our website while I'm making videos about it. Getting hands-on with the gear helps me see what I should show you about a product, though the flip side is my personal wish list is a mile long...

Ford owners can upgrade to a new Kenwood navigation receiver and still keep their factory-installed SYNC® system, thanks to this Maestro adapter from iDatalink. The Maestro integrates the Kenwood stereo into the SYNC system, so you continue to use voice commands, factory Bluetooth® connectivity, steering wheel controls, and more. Find out more in this video, and contact one of our Advisors for more info.

    can it replace the Ford Sony indash System in F150's and maintain climate controls and other factory dependent touch screen systems?

    Stan, it depends on the year of your F-150 and the stereo you choose, but yes, the Maestro has that capability. Give us a call with your vehicle's full information, and an advisor can help you with more details. Or you can use our vehicle selector.
