    True! Worse yet, we can't upgrade the damn thing. Freaking nonsense, making non-replaceable head units. Argh. This means the sluggish head unit we have now is the sluggish head unit we will have forever. No wireless Android Auto either. There are so many awesome aftermarket units available, but Ford made a bad design decision

    ?? I plan on replacing the headunit at some point in mine. Wireless CarPlay is already available aftermarket. They make a trim piece for the RS, and since there is no ADAS, we should be able to upgrade the HU.
    Don't worry, scrote. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick-ass lives. My first wife was 'tarded. She's a pilot now.

    In another thread about updating the audio system in this car there was talk of this unit not being replaceable because it carried some essential functionality. A quick check on Crutchfield does not list any available headunits. In fact, the site simply says "We don't recommend replacing the radio in your vehicle." If that info is not correct, I'd appreciate some information

    Does anyone have the changelog or know the difference between the older head unit and the 19?

    Does this one not work with our car? It says through 2019, but I haven't seen any RS add it yet.

    I looked at the web sie and it lloks like is a viable replacement. My concern is will it support all the current controls in the Ford HU. I have made signficant changes with FORscan that I would not like to loose with a new headunit.

    .

    I'd be interested in that radio above.... if I wasn't the guinea pig for it :-)

    Kinda funny about that radio linked to above, some friends and I put an Android-tablet based head unit into a TSX and my one friend was like "I wish I had CarPlay"... i had him buy the USB dongle like they mention in the description and it actually freaking works! CarPlay running on Android is so wrong! lol

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.
