2013 OE-Syle Radio replacment

As anyone found a good OE-Style Radio for their mustang.

American Muscle has one from Raxiom, but I am not to fond of the theme of the radio.

I want something that's touchscreen, let's me keep:
Bluetooth
Sync
Wheel controls
Factory look.

I don't want to drill or cut anything either.

As in theme what do you really mean. For all that you are looking for the Rosen/Raxiom radio is your best bet.

You just explained the Raxiom Navigation to the T! The Raxiom Navigation unit is touchscreen and allows you to keep Bluetooth, SYNC, STW and it obtains a factory fit and finish. There's no drilling or cutting required, it's literally a plug and play unit! I have the Raxiom Nav installed on my personal 2011 GT and couldn't be happier.

I really enjoy the added back up camera, GPS, traffic pattern updates, red light cameras, speed traps etc.. that this unit offers! It's also very customizable with a bunch of different background options. The included instructions make the install a breeze, I was able to get this installed in a little over an hour with literally no "wiring" experience.

I completely understand if there's other units out there that interest you more. But I recommend looking into the Raxiom Navigation! Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions, need some assistance or just want to chat about my personal experience with this unit.

I want it to have a clean look in the icons and buttons in the system. I'll take another looks at the raxiom.

Have you priced some of these? While cheaper than the 2 grand option from Ford, it will still put a hurting on your wallet.

I really like my $99.00 Tom Tom!

Check AM install instructions. It's takes more time installing the radio then to run the wires for your back up camera or antenna

People usually run the antennas through the a pillar is what I've seen and some run the camera through the a pillar and then mount it on the inside of the rear windshield and I also saw a guy take out one of his license plate lights and put the camera there.

I think it does, you just can't use the features.

^ This is exactly how I ran mine. The lines have plenty of slack and are very easy to run. I mounted the GPS antenna on the top of the interior deck lid and put the back up Camera right in between the license plate lights. Check out our installation video on this set up!

As of right now, this set up only works for cars that are equipped with SYNC. If Raxiom comes out with a model that works with Base models, you guys will be the first to know!

Have you looked at the Maestro kit with Kenwood HU?

Here's a pic.

The only catch is that it works with 'select' Kenwood navigation only models. I was speaking to iDatalink guys to see if they have any other kit available or if other stereos are supported. Nope, not until next year.

No other radio maker has implemented our protocol or added a screen for climate control yet. We hope to have some additional makes next year.
