Thanks a ton. It's from a 2015 f150 xlt. Non nav. If I run into any issues I hope you don't mine me reaching out to you considering you have a lot of knowledge in this department. I'll update once the parts get here.

Subbing. Good luck buddy.

Called a few dealerships to see if they had any kind of information as far as the conversion and was told it can't be done. One also stated that I would have to get a screen in my rear view mirror for the camera to work with the larger screen. Makes absolutely no sense. The parts should be here Tuesday. I'll report back.

Your wasting your time asking any dealer if something can be done. I had to show my dealer how to activate my DRLs. It's sad that the salesmen and mechanics know so little about what they work on.

haha. That's ridiculous! Just figured they would be somewhat knowledgable.

Quick update. Parts should be showing up sometime tomorrow. Dug down and read the entire thread provided previously and got alot of good info. I also got in contact with some very knowledgeable folks from mustang6g. Working on getting wiring diagrams so i can see what all needs added or moved to the APIM module. I popped open my dash just to see what i was working with considering all the removal videos have the MFT. Definitely a extra plug that connects to the 4.3 screen. The wiring that will be needed should be for the backup cam, sync mic ms can and hs can. Will verify for sure one i get diagrams

So this is where I am at right now. I made the pin movements from the old APIM configuration to the new APIM configuration and she fired up. I will tackle getting the bus and backup camera wiring done later this week. The date is off and the compass isn't showing up. So I have a little more research to do. Sat works, sync works, Ac controls work, fm and am are working. So far really happy with the purchase. Can't wait to get it all dialed in.
