NAV1 and SAT1 for F150

Post by Big_E » Wed Oct 23, 2019 11:50 am

On the product page for the NAV1 and SAT1 and RR they list compatibility with 2015 F150 with 8" screen. Inside my dash I found what I thought was my GPS wire so I ordered a NAV1 to connect to my Kenwood dx9903s. The factory connector is tan in color. Is that actually the SiriusXM connector because the receiver doesn't see the GPS signal? If so, how do I get the GPS to connect to the receiver?

The "tan"/curry colored antenna behind the radio is the factory XM/SAT antenna

Thank you Zak, any idea how to connect the Ford OEM GPS to the receiver or am I forced to use Kenwood GPS receiver?

Most people just use the aftermarket (kenwwod in this case) antenna and tuck it under the dash. As long as it isnt obstructed by any metal and only has glass and plastic above it, it should work fine. No need to run it outside, and most times it will work thru the factory dash material as long as it is as high and far forward as possible without being blocked by metal
