2012 Ford F-250 Factory Navigation Install Instructions
Microphone for Sync Commands
2012 F-250 Factory Navigation is primarily plug_and_play. Simply remove your AM/FM/CD Radio and plug in the Ford navigation system. There will be (4) connections that you will need to make in order for Sync commands to work with the navigation system. These connections are for the microphone connection between the navigation and the Sync module.
Connections are the following:
1. Locate the 16 pin connector that goes into the navigation radio. You will need to raise the red faced locking tab and insert the wires from the bag labeled (16 pin) into slots 11 & 12.
These wires go into 16 pin of factory harness to radio.
Sync Module *Above connector pics are an example..16 pin not pictured
2. You will need to locate the Sync module that sits behind the glove box. You will need to look up and to the right to see the module. The best way to access the
plug is to remove the right side dash access panel.
3. You will then need to insert the wires labeled Sync into slots 12 & 13 of the 54
pin connector on the Sync harness. You will simply insert the wires into these slots without removing or raising a locking mechanism.
4. Connect the wire in slot 11 of the 16 pin connector to the wire in slot 12 of the Sync 54 pin connector.
5. Connect the wire in slot 12 of the 16 pin connector to the wire in slot 13 of the Sync 54 pin connector.
6. Mount the GPS antenna to any flat surface without any metal directly above it. Typically an air duct or in the area below the removed tray. The factory location for the antenna sits further up and to the left of the radio behind the speedo cluster. You will see a small metal locking tab sticking up.
7. If you are installing a back-up camera with the navigation you will need to locate the 10 pin connector port at the back of the navigation. Pin#1 is for video signal “+” and directly below pin#6 is for video “-“. You can cut the video RCA from the camera harness, strip back the jacket to access the signal wires, or use a female RCA and cut it to a short 5”-6” lead. Strip back the signal wires and attach connector’s small enough to slide onto the radio pins (found at local parts store). The very center wire of the RCA will be the positive signal wire. Then plug the lead into our harness.
8. Install navigation Radio into dash and reinstall the tray and dash bezel.
This is what I have....What are your thoughts?
