I'm with you. I never had a Sony that wasn't just Balony. I have had several Pioneer units that I did installs on cars and trucks that I owned, back in the day that were magnificent units. As for the newer units now, they have lots of features. But I am unimpressed with their audio performance...udmsvt said:Thanks, I appreciate it. And while you're at it, can you check into if the older Pioneer ones will work as well? I HATE HATE HATE Sony car audio. almost as much as I hate TomTom.jpark said:Actually, starting with the '09 models, the OEM nav units are made by Sony.
While SYNC add-ons may be plug and play, several Ford modules may need to be "flashed" by the dealer to get them to work.
I haven't been able to get a 2009 service DVD yet, but the minute I have one, I'll post what I can find out about it.
