08 radio options. (Camera, USB, aux etc.)

I have an 08 Job 1 King Ranch with 6 cd changer, nav, audiophile and the rear DVD entertainment system. It doesn't have any camera functionality right now.

I have some questions.

1) Will the head unit play DVDs ? Or does only the back unit play DVDs ?

2) Is there a way to add camera inputs to this radio ?

3) Is there a way to add a USB input to this radio ?

4) Is there a way to add another aux input, other than the one that is in the dash ?

Thanks !

The generic answer to all your questions is no.

this unit is available, and is supposed to do all of the above (except maybe USB) and control your ipod/iphone even with steering wheel controls, FORD 360 LOCKPICK , but I haven't found any positive reviews from anyone about it yet...

There is another company, but you have to send in your headunit to them, I cant find the link right now, but it will turn up...

I also found a guy that can package a wiring harness to allow a new generation SYNC unit into an '08. But this route has got to be expensive...

Your probably better off going with a 3rd party head unit. I have the Avic Z2 which does everything your asking. Great stereo.

I was even able to update the software to that of a Z3 unit pretty easily.

Sounds like you have a tough choice to make. I'd first see if there were adapters I could add on first b4 spending a bunch of money for a whole new system.
