Latest plug and play for a 1998 E-350 Ford van
Works exactly as described and 5 minute installation.
09 Ranger, works great
Easy install into my 09 Ranger, everything works great. No complaints.
It took about 1 minute to install. Worked perfectly. It would have been nice if instructions came on how to set the clock.
Perfect for long drives
I got this radio six years ago from 1 Factory Radio for my 2004 Ford E150 van. I drive long distances, and oftentimes out of reach of suitable radio stations. The auxiliary port provides the answer when I connect it to my iPad with cellular signal, and be able to pull in distance stations through Apple apps. I can get all the news, country western, jazz, classical stations from around the world. I can also access endless selections from YouTube and other sources. Being able to seamlessly connect an iPad (with cellular) to such a very dated radio brings all the luxury sounds of a modern vehicle radio.
What's not to like!
Ordered my first one of these a couple of years ago to put in my 2002 Excursion. It was perfect and still is. Ordered this one a couple of weeks ago for my 2000 F250. It was delivered in a timely manner. It too was perfect from the box. Installed it today (took about 5 minutes) and works great. I'm able to use my XM now in either rig, hard-wired to the radio without the distortion of clipping on the antenna outside. The old original is boxed up and will be headed to a UPS drop. I expect my $25 core return within two or three weeks (I prefer the check over PayPal), same as the last time.
