By the time you get done doing a factory nav system you could have done aftermarket and had a much better unit for less $$.

I have the factory nav and it's OK, but the aftermarket units I've seen are a whole lot better.

Also, the factory nav maps are woefully inaccurate. I've only had my truck a little over a month and 3000 miles and I've found at least a dozen places were the map is just plain wrong. And I've seen several threads on various forums where people are griping about Ford not updating the maps/software on these units.

If it were me in your shoes, I wouldn't even be considering a factory nav unit.

If you can hold off a couple more months, Kenwood will have the iDatalink Maestro module available for their Nav units. This will allow their Nav units to utilize all of the factory steering wheel controls and fully support the existing Sync system. The module was developed by ADS and integrated by Kenwood for their nav product line.

I've got a DNX6190HD lined up for install just as soon as the iDataLink module is released, possibly shortly before release, for evaluation purposes. I'll do a full write up with pics just as soon as it's completed. Kenwood has put a lot of effort into this integration.

One of my good friends is a rep for Kenwood. If he let someone else get this before me, I'm removing myself from his wedding party dammit!

Are you sure you got the iDataLink Maestro? I don't see it listed on Crutchfield. Heard it wasn't due out until June? For some reason, I though you didn't need the steering wheel control interface with the Maestro.

Looks like Ford promotional material doesn't it? Awesome truck sitting in front of a cool house in the middle of nowhere. Put some tire shine on that beast and submit it to Ford's marketing dept!

Ford Factory Radio Interface Add an aftermarket stereo to select 2008-up Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles while retaining use of SYNC® system at Crutchfield.com

So what's the difference between the maestro and that? I'm about to pull the trigger on this Alpine INA-W910 Navigation receiver at Crutchfield.com but if i can run that kenwood can retain all sync functions without a separate display I'll hold off and wait. Especially since its a couple hundred cheaper. I'm assuming that kenwood will utilize the factory siriusxm tuner so I don't have to buy a separate one.

From what I know, all factory audio and control features are retained without an external display. I'm gonna try to get my friend in here to comment further since I do not have any specifications or access to more direct product info. I do not want to misinform here.
