Just finished installing my double din in my truck. Wanted to post here and make it available for people to find as I found information kind of hard to come by. I will post part numbers of everything I used in a little bit after I take a break. Just installed it in the parking lot of my hotel in Houston and I am not used to the humidity, it got me.

Truck is a 2015 F250 XL. Didn’t have sync or anything like that. Not even any kind of Bluetooth, so that’s why I wanted to replace it in the first place. I’m not a “fancy” snob so I did it the absolute cheapest way possible while still doing it “right”. I simply wanted Bluetooth capabilities. Nothing more, nothing less. So I got a Pioneer AVH110BT head unit. Nothing fancy. Cost a whopping $120 at Walmart. I’m in to this for a total of $150 and couldn’t be happier.

Initial impression, I’m actually surprised in the quality for being that cheap. Touch screen is responsive. Decent UI. It’s a 4/5. One thing I ran into while installing was after splicing all the wires to their same colored partners on the harnesses, I wasn’t getting the stereo to power on. I soon found out after prodding around with a DVOM that the factory power supply is only 5V. You need 12 to power the unit. I found a bundle of wires taped up where the harness goes out the firewall and in that bundle was a wh/blue keyed power wire. I ran my wire to that and viola, problem solved. Everything else went smooth as could be. Looks good, sounds good, and I have Bluetooth.

I used the same one probably. Got mine at best buy. Definitely not the best quality but it did the job and looks decent enough. I cant complain.

Looks good! I would highly recommend using crutchfield. You usually get the din adapters, and brackets and a oem wire harness adapter free with purchases. Used them for various import and domestic cars and trucks with great success. Only downfall is not touching units before hand but hasn't been an issue yet.

Speakers, amps, subs, single/double dins all of etc on Subarus, Fords old and new, Toyotas etc. They have top notch customer support and so far all their products appear to be of good quality. I actually enjoy this stuff because every vehicle is a new challenge. Great job again though!
