I was wondering and I have been looking for info on the CENTER DIGITAL CLUSTER. Once a new HEAD UNIT is installed, the CENTER DIGITAL CLUSTER reads FORD ESCAPE, but does it still display the COMPASS and TEMP????

OK i found out the answer. The TEMP and COMPASS works when you remove the factory HEAD UNIT.

I was going to answer this a few minutes ago!

:doh:

If you have the temp and compass from the factory on your 2008+ E/M/T, they will continue to work if you remove the factory audio system. You'll only lose the audio control displays.

another question on the center digital cluster...since i dont have a compass or temp guage in my cluster, does this unit have to stay in my escape? or can i remove it? im wanting to get a remote mount radar detector and was going to install it in this slot after i install a pioneer avic in my escape. just making sure its ok to remove it.

Well thats a good question. I would suppose that if you dont have none of the TEMP or COMPASS readers then what would be the harm in taking the center cluster out and replacing the screen??? I would say nothing. Keep up posted on this.

sure will. because my thinking is that if its only going to say ford escape when i finally install my avic, then its coming out and im going to install a remote mount radar detector and use that hole for the visual unit to stay hidden, plus it should look pretty sweet in there. where you at jpark?
