Factory ford Radios

I have a 05 Ford F350 with the XL package, so its pretty basic stuff. I have the factory none CD player radio right now, my question is if I had access to a cheap factory radio with CD player could I just swap them out? Would I need a different wiring harness or anything?

These are the types of radio's I'm talking about

Yes. It should plug right in. You could also spend a couple hundred bucks on eBay for an aftermarket radio like I did and get all kinds of goodies like Bluetooth, DVD, backup cam and Nav. It also plugs right in to the existing wiring with an adapter.

It's a nobrand Chinese radio I bought off eBay brand new for about $200. It has DVD, CD, iPod, mp3, USB, 2 cam inputs, TV, Bluetooth and GPS with a 7inch touchscreen. You can find them on eBay all day long! Buy a wiring harness and mounting adapter at Autozone and you're good to go. Takes less than an hour to swap them out. You have to pull the dash and remove 4 screws.

RPM371, Ya I was just looking at them on eBay, Where did you install the GPS antenna at? Also how good is the sound, Maps?
One more thing I see it comes with a Touch Pen, can you use your finger to use it or just that Touch Pen it comes with?
Thanks ~Gage~

If you have access to a close model year, (05-06-07) it should just swap right out. Or if you have a little $ to spend, go with what the other guys suggest.

2008 F250 XL - I upgraded to a factory Ford 6 CD and it was plug n' play. $100.00 two years ago (ebay), still works great.

I installed my GPS antenna near the defrost vent and routed the coax thru the dash. The sound is good thru my factory speakers. Not extremely thrilled with the maps that came with it, but that can be upgraded to Garmin. I have no problem using the touchscreen with my finger. I also put a screen protector on to keep it from getting scratched up.

For what it costs, it's a good radio.

any radio from the following Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles will work

2003-2008 Expedition/Navigator
2004-2008 F-150/Mark LT
2005-2009 Mustang
2005-2008 Superduty

there are more, but that's a pretty large segment of vehicles to pick from



as far as features, the 2007+ radios have an Aux input. Ford uses it with a headphone jack

Thanks for the info....I didnt know you can upgrade the maps with Garmin, does that just require buying the Garmin maps and installing them?
Thanks again ~Gage~
