500GB!? I'm never in my truck long enough to even go through 2GB.
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialist concludes that we object to its being done at all. " -The Law, Frédéric Bastiat, 1850
That doesn't make sense. Why can we not retro add the SYNC system? Did they change all of the wire harnesses? I assumed it was a head unit swap along with at least one new harness for the USB and Bluetooth. It seems cost ineffective to change everything, but then again this is Ford.
This product looks very promising. You can add iPod and/or a usb drive and control it thought the stock stereo. Put a nice 8gb memory stick on there!
Called the company here is the response from:
According to peripherals the PXAMG is compatible with Navigation
radios with SAT button (accessed via the Navigation menu).
Will also retain SAT radio and/or RSE (if so equipped). http://www.discountcarstereo.com/detail.aspx?ID=1116
As long as the radio has an "aux" button it will work.
(my reply) have you tested it on a navagation touch screen head unit? it has a line in button that will access a stereo jack for ipods. (From him) Yes we have. The only thing the PXAMH-HDRT is not compatible with is Ford vehicles equipped with a “Sync” system.
I am having for replace my nav unit under warranty So i'll post with the impression of the "Radio Guy" in the next few weeks.
you guys are not going to believe this,
The corporate headquarters of AAMP (peripherial electronics) is located 5 minutes from my house. I am going to contact them tomorrow to get some verbal reassurance on this subject. Upon looking at the user manual it looks as if it will work on the navagation radio. I ma concrened about the "CAM_BUS" requirement as well as an LCD cable that is not available yet.
Here is the company press release: http://www.aampofamerica.com/web/pre...ral.asp?ID=138
