2013 f150 4.3 screen

Post by CndCnd »

Hello

Just wanted to confirm compatibility...

2013 f150 with 4.3 screen.

Upgrading to a pioneer wt7600nex with a MFT1 kit and a factory 8" bezel. I wanted to avoid the k150 fan/temp control issues.

So with that being said do I need both the RR and FO2 to make this function with sync and my steering controls or just FO2? I'll also have to run the supplied microphone as it wont interface with the ford mic?

Thanks

MFT1 is not compatible with 4.3" screen trucks. You would need the K150 kit in your vehicle. There's not an issue with the K150 functioning. Some vehicles, the factory climate control module does get tempermental, but that's not related to the K150 kit and not a common thing most users will experience.

Also, with the radio having Carplay/Android Auto, our suggestion is to always disable Sync, run the Pioneer microphone so you'll be able to fully utilize the functionality of the radio. Otherwise phone calls will route via Sync BT, the radio needs the Pioneer mic installed for Siri/Google Voice to function, and it gets to be much less of a user friendly experience in the way the phone reacts in different sources/applications.

I see...thank you for the assistance.

I'll still need the fo2 kit and RR to complete this install correct?

Thanks

If you use the K150, you need that and the RR. If you don't use the K150, you'd need the FO2 and RR.
