Hi,
I'm new in this forum.
I just bought a 2014 V6 Premium Mustang without the electronics package, I'm kind of regretting about not getting it in the first place, I just found out it's not only GPS.
I'm wondering can I get it installed in my current Mustang from my dealer?

Thanks

Stop by and ask. Be prepared for a price quote shock though; It's going to cost a whole bunch more than if you had ordered it from the factory.

Unless you by the parts and install it yourself. Some have gone this route. Me, I just use a Tom-Tom.

On the other hand, you may spend some big bucks and have a hard time selling it. Especially if a dealer takes it, most used cars are not loaded up.

I looked into this with my 2010 and unless you have a donor car it is very costly, I just waited until I got my 2013 and made sure it came with it.
BTW your radio does have turn by turn navigation as long as your phone is present.
As for the Electronics package just being the GPS, for me that was nice, the dual zone climate control with the electronic temp control is more than worth it for me (no more it is to hot or too cold from the wife), the hard drive is nice also.

I really never did understand the seperate climate control thing. The passenger sets his/her climate to 75 degrees; the driver wants his/her temp at 72....

Both are in the same cabin! One is still going to be too cold or too warm. Warmer air comes out of the vent, so the person that's too warm lowers their temp. The person that's too cold raises their temp.

It seems to be a battle.

Yeah but how else are you going to create cabin tornadoes?

Like most have said, this won't be a cheap thing to do unfortunately... You can get hands free calling, music hard drive storage, and Nav all from an aftermarket head unit... It's not going to be cheap doing that either I'm afraid, I'm thinking around $300 for the dash kit and another $125 in adaptors and wiring harnesses. Then you need a good radio, probably a touch screen if you want the most features, one that does nav and storage won't be cheap, I would be prepared to spend a grand... So, your looking at roughly 1,200-1,500 if you go that rout.... Unfortunately you won't get dust climate control or the shaker system but you would have a better radio and get some of the features you want. If you can live without Nav & storage then you could do it for around $700 I think

Since the air is always moving, it is blowing out at the set temp. My feet no longer are in the fridge.

If u get the schoche kit u can get it all done for about 800 but that's not including upgrading your front and rear speakers and amps and subs and all. If u want to do it all look forward to spending 1300

That's because car manufacturers save money and think it looks better with the controls all mounted in one dash piece. If you take the factory radio out you will see that it's just a box with a cd slot and the controls are connected through wiring harnesses. So they can put the same radio in a bunch of cars and configure the buttons however they need to and just hook up the wiring harness as needed.
