You will need a PAC's C2R-FRD1 radio replacement interface lets you replace the factory radio in select 2005-up Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles that use the MSCAN databus. You'll still be able to use factory features like Rear Seat Entertainment, Rear Seat Controls, and the THXII amplifier.
Ya i was looking at the headrests last night and it wouldnt be a good idea to install them because the back of the headrest are slanted forward so the monitors would be pointed more at the ceiling rather than the passenger. so drop down monitor is what i am going to do.
I have the Pioneer AVIC-Z2 slaved to a Kenwood DVD 11.5" overhead.I can let my kids watch a movie on the Kenwood with the IR headphones or we can all watch a movie from my head unit(It's bypassed to work while moving obviously)I'll post some pic's later on today.
Cenni,I went with the overhead so all passengers can see the screen and an DVD player so I don't have to watch Barney or Dora!
The Nav system ties into my XM for traffic updates and I added the Bluetooth,Rear camera,DVD changer and PAC SWI wheel controls.2 Alpine amps,one for JL Steath Sub,one for System speakers(JL audio as well) mounted in center consoul with a computer fan to move fresh air.Had the system for 2 years now,absolutely love it,zero issues.
