Ford F150s are great trucks and the MyFord Touch systems that come with them are better than some factory options in other vehicles. They are still severely lacking in the types of features and functions available in aftermarket units. When one of our Abbotsford locals brought us his F150 with a handful of feature requests, we knew exactly what was needed: a Pioneer 5100-NEX.
The MyFord Touch system and surrounding bezel house the physical A/C controls and the touchscreen unit. While this may be a problem for some other shops, here at Driven Audio we take pride in our professionalism, experience and knowledge. We immediatley knew the best integration option to make this a beautiful, clean installation. We used a housing unit from ADS’s Maestro line of factory matching kits which retained the exact appearance and function of the Ford climate control buttons. This unit also features a data integration wiring harness that communicates with the Ford vehicle computer to make sure all features and safety options operate as intended by the factory. The kit also added a useful storage pocket, USB, HDMI, and auxiliary ports for interfacing with the new touchscreen by various options.
The Pioneer 5100-NEX unit gave our client built-in navigation, as well as smartphone integration and other options through the use of Apple CarPlay software. DVD, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth also are new features as part of this installation. As a final touch, we added a Rydeen Ford factory emblem cam on the tailgate for an OEM looking reverse camera backup safety solution.
Our client was beyond thrilled and happy to finally have the amazing features in his dash that such a great truck should have come with from the factory. But just because the manufacturers leave you hanging doesn’t mean you need to be without!
