Radio, nav, back up cam

Looking at an XLT with standard radio/cd player. Was wondering what options there are for a unit that integrates the radio, navigation, and perhaps a back up cam. Could be integral with the dash or not. I called Crutchfield and they say they have info on the 11 & 12s, but nothing on the 13s and 14s. Would they be the same or were there some minuscule change that makes them incompatable?

Thanks

If crutchfield doesn't know, try contacting "METRA" directly. They are the main supplier of install kits that most companies use. The new stereos that are installed at the factory seem to have special plates that don't fit the aftermarket stereos. i.e.. knobs and buttons all over the place. I know that on the new F-150 Metra makes a replacement plate for the center that allows you to add a new stereo without cutting the old plate. Their website is Metra Online | Welcome to Metra Auto Parts Online Warehouse I've used them for years when crutchfield didn't have the answers.

I haven't looked at a 2013 dash yet so I can't offer any personal experience on how to go about installing one. I've installed lots of stereos over the years, but haven't had the opportunity to tackle one that new yet.

I just installed (about 2 weeks ago) a Pioneer AVIC x850BT in my 2011. I LOVE it. I did the install myself and here is what I needed: (I believe the non-Nav 2013-15 F250s have the exact same dash and radios as my truck)

1. Pioneer X850BT Nav unit: Pioneer 6.1" BuiltIn GPS CDDVD BuiltIn Bluetooth InDash Receiver AVIC-X850BT - Best Buy
2. PAC MS-FRD1. This allows you to retain SYNC as well as plug and play connections for everything, including your factory Subwoofer (if you have one): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003E3QRU2/ref=oh_details_o06_s01_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
3. Metra Dash Kit (you will need to modify it slightly with a razor knife, only to remove the two tabs on the back that aren't used.): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000K4V4X8/ref=oh_details_o06_s01_i03?ie=UTF8&psc=1
4. Sirius Adapter SVX200v1. This allows you to use the Sirius feature of the headunit. The PAC module above retains Sirius also, but from a little screen you need to mount. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007T0NM2M/ref=oh_details_o06_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
5. Metra Axxess. This retains full steering wheel controls. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B4PJC9K/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
6. Pyle Cameras (The picture isn't what is actually being sold). I purchased 2 of these. One above my rear License plate and the other on the front. I added the one in the rear, because the Pioneer Nav actually allows you to watch the rear camera while driving (it splits the screen between the camera and the nav). The front one is connected to one of my 2 AV inputs. It's mounted to my brush guards top bar and points down towards my winch. So I can see spacing infront of my truck.

I don't know how I missed this, I just now seen it.

This looks like a pretty sweet outfit. Do you know what nav system it has? Also, I am figuring on an XLT, so the dash is going to be a bit different. Other than that, this is pretty much what I am looking for.

Wow. That's a nice setup and clean install. I ordered a MyTouch Lockpick because I want to do a camera up front also. I had a Pioneer AVIC-Z1 in my 2007 F-250. It's probably an ancient model now, but it was easier to use than my factory navigation.

I originally didn't buy my truck with Nav in 2011 because I had an tablet that I was going to use for nav. I regret that now and wish I would have opted for it then.

That being said, I am upgrading to a 2017 Super Duty when they are released, and will get every feature I can imagine from the factory..

The only reason for me to consider a 2015 truck right now would be the upgraded navigation. My truck only has 18k miles (I drive my company car around most often).

I honestly think a pioneer navigation system will perform better than the factory's system. The MyFord Touch system can be very slow and lacks customization, especially audio settings. I'm looking forward to seeing the new Super Duty in 2017. I hope they unveil the new body style soon.

I ordered a 15 xl and was planning on doing same thing I did with my 12 which was added a ford backup camera, a pioneer touch screen, 8 sub and new door speakers only thing I will be missing is the steering wheel controls. As pioneer in my current truck has a real good hands free system.
Is the wiring there for the hands free if I add the switch on the steering wheel?
I know the wiring is for the cruise.

If it ain't smokin' it's broken.

Does this setup require the left/right switches on the switch assembly on the left side of the steering wheel?
