    • Hi MWR. You had not mentioned you planned on having someone else do the installation. Okay, that is clearer.   In the meantime, the video generally shows you what the installation involves (your #2 question).    Hopefully another member who has done this will jump in.   Let us know how you make out and good luck.
    • If I do this I would buy a kit (some are only$500-$600) and pay someone to install it.
    • Hi MWR. I understand what you are looking for. However, that is the work necessary. And if you scroll through that post I linked to, there is not much reading. It is ~95% photos. However, unless you want to pay someone else to do the installation, there in no shortcut for the work. And it is not very hard. So the short answer to your questions is...There are no reliable, inexpensive, purchasable, pre-packaged and "easy-to-install kits".   You can purchase the  ~$1,500 kit offered by companies like 4D Tech, or you try to source the parts yourself from Salvage Yards etc. If you source the parts yourself, you can do it for $300-$500 (according to your resourcefulness and luck), then perform the install yourself following online instructions like I linked to, or following the the online videos available. It is not hard if you have some basic tools (screwdrivers, allen wrenches,  trim removal tools etc.) and the right How-to video.   I am sure if another member has information that may help you, they will certainly jump in to help.   Good luck.   Also...If you want a general idea what it takes to do yourself, you can take a look at this How-to video for the Lincoln MKZ (cousin to the Fusion). While the trim pieces and removal do differ, the overall installation is very similar and will give you an idea of what is entailed. The electronics are essentially the same, only the surrounding trim differs:
       
    • Thanks! However, that explanation is way more than I'm even willing to read, much less do that work. I'm looking for an easy-to-install kit that people have actually bought, installed, and got working. And, yes, I know there are a lot of videos out there. But again, same thing as I said before.
    • Hi MWR. Take a look at this thread on another forum for a pretty in depth explanation: http://www.2gfusions.net/showthread.php?tid=3881   If you Google "Ford Fusion SYNC 2 to SYNC 3 conversion", can find more information and videos.   Good luck.
    • My 2015 FFH SE has Sync2. I'd love to have Sync3 to get Android Auto. Multiple companies offer a conversion kit, at wildly varying prices. Has anyone done this conversion? If so, (1) a link to the product, please, (2) what did the installation involve, and (3) and what was the result?
