2014 base head unit swap

I have a 2014 base V6, no sync, I would like to install a new head unit that can play mp3's from a usb stick. I don't need navi or Bluetooth or anything like that. what do I need to get besides the head unit to make this happen?

I just got a wiring harness and a head unit adaptor, specifically this one:


Although I got it from crutchfield. I didn't get a steering wheel adapter because I don't care about my steering wheel controls. Never used them anyway.

We've got a comprehensive thread about the iDataLink Maestro setup on these forums, just do a quick search for iDataLink. If you're used to just swapping the head unit like in other vehicles, unfortunately you're out of luck with the Mustang. The climate controls run through the stock head unit, so you've got to get a whole dash kit along with the new deck. The Scoshe is one option; I and many others have the iDataLink setup and we all seem to love it. You can get a full nav system (even though you say you don't want it) from Kenwood along with the dash kit and all the necessary installation equipment for around $500-$600 depending on the deck you choose. Price goes up from there.
