Hey guys first post, I got a 2010 sport with Sony sound and I’ve been doing a lot of reading on how to swap from the Sony 6cd radio, (dual climate I do have) to the factory nav and not really coming up with a definitive answer. Either swapping apims from a donor car or adding in some other harnesses. Has anyone done this and made it super easy without having to go thru hell? I have the nav radio, screen, and bezel that I’ve bought from marketplace. I know aftermarket is going to be way easier, but I do like the look of factory. Any insight would be appreciated.

If I do, can I still use the new radio bezel I got that’s for navigation?

Hi Olson and welcome to the Ford Sync Forum. No way to tell at this point, since that would depend on what brand/model unit you purchase and whether the bezel is compatible.

 

I would also echo Multitask's advice to go aftermarket. The Factory NAV units are outdated, no longer supported, and you could get far more for your money with an aftermarket unit.

 

Your best course of action would be to go to Crutchfield.com and speak to one of their installation specialists to see what your best options are: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-ppiwDVyvXoK/

 

Let us know how you make out and good luck.

I had a 2012 Fusion, at the time I did not know about the Sony connections (now I do) hat ever you deside, make sure they are digital capable... the Sony System is Digital... meaning the lins to the speakers are digital... etc...

 

I went with Pioneer at the time...  unfortunately, I only had the car for 5 weeks... till it was totaled....
