Does what it says (2000 Crown Vic)
2000 Ford Crown Victoria
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Even though it's not recommended for the 98-2002 Crown Vic/Grand Marquis/Town Car, it can be wedged in above the radio. You have to remove the bypass section of the CD Changer adapter cable and then you'll have enough room to wedge it all in there. It's easier to just string a wire puller in from the glove box and fish the long input cable with the headphone plug out and just leave it in the glove box, but anyone could mount an AUX jack in the dash and run to the RCA jacks as well if they wanted. I agree that it's not recommended for the above listed vehicles unless you're very good at finding ways to make things fit. Took me about an hour to figure it out, remove the bypass section of the adapter cable and refit everything. Would definitely be much easier on an 03+ that will fit 2-Din instead of the 1.5 din of the 98-2002 vehicles. Sound quality is as good as your device will give it up to the quality of the stock head unit (which in a car, is usually good enough). And for my wife, everything still looks stock and there's no wires hanging out from under the dash, so it's all good, and I can listen to all my tunes from my phone or mp3 player without issue. And if you don't want to go through all the trouble I did with fitment with the radio, you can always extend the adapter cable's wires for the PXDX unit to mout it elsewhere in the car that isn't so claustrophobic. This does require wire soldering skills as I would not trust splices to hold up with those thin wires.
Pros: Plug and play for the most part (gotta wire up power and ground on some adapter cables). Manual has ALL the dip switch settings for all compatible vehicles. The manual is downloadable from pac-audio.com so you can check compatibility before you order even if Crutchfield says it won't fit.
Cons: The device could be thinner for easier fitment.
