Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was recommended as a needed item with my package but it is not needed with the mus-1 dash kit. First it does not have the extra wiring for the dash kit and the dash kit comes with the correct harness already. Unfortunately i soldered this harness together first only to realize it was missing the wiring for the dash kit buttons then I had to start over again.

Pros:

Cons: Not needed with dash kit

Worked like it should

Definitely made wiring a snap! Nice and easy plug in play besides having to connect the wires to the harness for the head unit but it was easy color matching.

Pros: Simple and easy

Cons: None

Buy this!

Kirk from Ocean Springs, MS on 3/20/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you are installing the iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR Factory Integration Adapter spend the extra few bucks and get this harness. You can do the install without it but you'll spend several hours cutting, splicing and soldering without it.

Pros: Makes the installation of the iDatalink Maestro ADS-MRR Factory Integration Adapter painless.

Cons:

Makes installing a Maestro a snap!

This makes wiring up the Maestro unit a snap. There's only around 10-ish wires to connect to the head units harness plus a couple to the car harness and everything else is plug-and-play.

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Buying this harness is worth it to keep the steering wheel controls for your new radio. Very simple to connect, you can splice or solder connections to the radio harness before you even take the old radio out making the process quicker.

Pros: Retain all original controls; simple to instal.

Cons: Lack of directions with harness; but Crutchfield covers those with THEIR instructions.

Pros: Easy to Install
