They are much better units then the factory ones, not to mention the customization capabilities, and the fact that the gps is powered by garmen. Besides I'm sure that ford wants a pretty penny for the factory headunit with gps.
That requires the iDatalink Maestro to retain the functionality of Sync with the new Kenwoods. They have been rumored to be available anytime now since May. I finally gave up and installed without the Maestro. Supposedly, it will be released in the next few weeks. I wasn't going to wait any longer.

As for the DNX-9990HD.....awesome headunit....I love mine.
