After market Head unit

Who out there has a 2010 or newer stang with the base model radio no sync just the am fm aux and single disc head unit I have a 13' v6 with that I really wanted to get the raxiom head unit but they said you need to have sync in order to get that. I want a head unit like that but I don't have sync. if anyone else has gotten a head unit for their stang and they don't have sync I would like to know what you got how much you spent and how do you like it and pictures if you can.

Sync is a requirement for the Raxiom unit.

Anything that does not require sync should work with the right installation kit.

I plan on buying from crutchfield during thanksgiving weekend (assuming they have deals) for a head unit, scosche instrument panel + touchscreen, and the adapter(s) for keeping the wheel controls.

I've got the maestro mus1 (dashkit) and the maestro rr (for retaining steering wheel controls - programmable) with a kenwood dnn770hd. The mus1 only works with certain kenwood units as the climate controls are removed and moved into a screen on the radio. It also display gauges (RPM, MPH, battery voltage, tire pressure, etc).

IMHO nothing else compares and you don't need sync. Here is my install.

How I like it. I love it! The kenwood does take a long time to boot up so that is annoying. It is somewhat sluggish between screens (this isn't long enough to bug me but it does others).

On the cost front I did the install myself and spent $1100 on the dash kit, control unit and the head unit. I posted the link to my purchase here.

I stated that I installed it myself to help in cost comparison as I don't know what install would cost. And none of it came from crutchfield.

I did the same as Tim. MUS1 Dash kit, Kenwood DNX570HD, MaestroRR control module. I love it as well and nothing else compares. Not to mention that simply swapping out the OEM stereo to an aftermarket one makes it sound like a completely new system. I got all my gear from Crutchfield except the MUS1 kit because I bought everything else before the dash kit was available. I recently sold my Metra dash kit and picked up the MUS1. Great setup!...and yes it will work without SYNC.

Do you think this will fit into a 2014 v6?
