I recently did this to my truck. It is pricey, but worth it to me. I now have Apple car play back. I tried to see if I could live without it, but after one week I had to get it back.
The benefit with them is their customer service and setup. Depending on your trim level and options, they have to program the APIM accordingly. They use the VIN number. They even provided me with a copy of the original window sticker.
They use all Ford parts. If I had seen this post before hand, i would’ve provided the part numbers for everyone. My bad.
But again, the customer service is top notch. The original APIM had a climate screen for a different model year. They resolved it quick and painless for me.
One thing i will caution for the 2015-16 is the top of dash compartment where the usb plugs go. The compartment doesn’t hold a bigger phone very well, and it gets hot when the heat is on. I used my thermo gun and had a reading of 150+, which is horrible for a phone. I will be installing a usb extension dash mount to alleviate this issue. This also addresses the question in the previous post, it is not wireless CarPlay. You will still have to plug in.
