2014 Mustang with Shaker 500 with Sync and w/o Nav

Post by 14sTanG »

Hey. I'm new. I just need to know exactly l need to put a Kenwood DDX396 in a 2014 Mustang with Shaker 500 with Sync but w/o Navigation. I'm replacing the entire Shaker 500 but am having a hard time finding what exactly works with the Shaker 500 connections.

The best solution is the Maestro RR and the MUS1 dash kit.

You can use either the RR or the RR2. Both modules will retain those features.

Ok. So what's the difference between the RR and RR2? All l see are the RR2 has programmable outputs.

And is the HRN-RR-FO1 harness necessary for both interfaces or just the RR2?

Both RR and RR2 are great components for this application. Is there anything specific you're looking to accomplish? Escort or K40 radar integration, custom accessories controlled from your steering wheel buttons, etc?

RR and RR2 will have the same basic functionality. RR2 adds a few things:

BT flashing (future) - not currently supported but is in testing. Will allow you to flash/adjust things without removing from the dash in the future.
Escort radar - with compatible radios you can integrate compatible radar detectors with RR2
Programmable outputs - control an accessory with SWC button press OR have a function we detect on computer network trigger an output to happen. Can be timed, latched, delayed on, etc. Low current, will need relays to operate anything over 350(?)mA of current. Think stuff like light bars, garage door openers, basically your mind is the limit.
If you use the MUS1 kit, you don't need the FO1. The kit comes with the wiring harness. It doesn't matter which version of the RR you choose.
