I'd love to see some pics when you get it installed. It'd be great if you post any pearls of wisdom as well as far as things to look out for during the swap.Well I just went and bought the scosche kit and a new radio, so hopefully by the weekend I'll have pics up of the new setup
While I can't really comment on the FLAC situation, as I am not really an audiophile, I can say if you currently have the OEM radio without NAV, getting a dual DIN with touch screen is quite the upgrade! Gives your car so many more options. Whether it is rear view camera, subs and amps, GPS built in, movie watching, better iPod integration, the list goes on.Looks great. I'm thinking about going the double din route myself. I have not decided on which head unit yet. There aren't may units out there that have FLAC support except for the newer JVC units.
In addition to everything I said in the last two posts, I wanted to address one thing in case anyone reading this was not aware. If you use the Maestro with a Kenwood that was made prior to 2013 models, you will not be able to add a SiriusXM tuner as the Maestro uses the 1 and only serial port on the Kenwood HU. THIS PISSED ME OFF QUITE ROYALLY AS I READ THE DIRECTIONS FOR INSTALLATION. Only certain Ford vehicles retain the Sirius after using the Maestro, but the Mustang is not one of them. I think the F150 or 250 and some other vehicles from Ford qualify. But because the Maestro made keeping the steering controls easy (I read bad reviews about other steering wheel control adapters from Metra and PAC online), as well as the overall ease of configuring the wiring harness lead me to keeping it. I did have to cancel my Sirius subscription though sadly enough. I am unwilling to pay for just mobile app access, and am not going to install a mobile Sirius into my vehicle to then run it via AUX into my Kenwood, which means controlling Sirius with yet another screen/device. So I will go back to downloading/ripping songs for my USB stick or get an iPod.How do you like the kenwood so far with the maestro adapter? All your Sync functions still working ok?
