Instructions for double din head unit install for 2011?

I have a 2011 Ford XLT. Are there instructions or a guide on how to install a double din head unit? I tried search but didnt come up with anything.

Crutch field was the place I went to get the adaptor, wire harness and instructions for my 03 double din install.

Not a whole lot to it.

Yes. You may need something like this:


PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Adapter Connects your car's steering wheel audio controls to select aftermarket car stereos at Crutchfield.com

The problem is Kenwood is the only brand using Garmin for the navigation. There are other good units out there, but nothing better than the Kenwood/Garmin combo.

This x1000. Real GPS systems use Garmin. One of the things I loved about my 2013 Dodge Dart, Uconnect system uses genuine Garmin maps (with updates available from Garmin).
