Hey do you think it is possible to ditch the radio and a/c unit and install a pre-2013 a/c controller with any head unit I choose? Essentially going back to the 2009-2012 layout?
Basically I am sick of the issues I have with sync and would rather have a nice alpine, kenwood, etc nav head unit without using sync at all.
I am basing that on one of the posts above, and some old pictures that I remember seeing.
I looked into swapping our my setup for the base version. I read that it would not work, but that may only be because sync won't work anymore. I gave up on the idea because acquiring the parts was going to be too expensive, and I could not tell if the traction control button would swap over correctly. Mine has hill descent which makes it even more difficult.
If I would swap to the base style, keep my hill descent and traction control I would do it even if I lost sync.
