Hi Paul, Thanks!

Just helping a new member with retrofitting MFT to his focus. Trying to persuade him to post up his pics etc. Looking forward to seeing how it's done etc.

Wish I had the ball's to do this but I'm no good at wiring and whatever else. Im still impressed/massively jealous of it Alan. Looks the bees knees.

 

How much did it cost you in total? Ever thought about installing it for money? (hint)

Thanks a Lot for the comments. 

 

I am just talking another new member through how to rewiring the sync cables etc for the touch screen I have asked him to post pics of the work would be good to see what he had to do to get it fitted etc. the wiring is the same as the Kuga tho so easy.

 

Parts I got from the US Ebay store ie ebay.com and looked for escape ford touch etc as keywords

 

the unit costs I posted earlier but averaged arround 500-600 pounds but that gives me sat nav as well..

 

getting the riht head unit is the tricky bit as I now have two. one with nav and one without.

 

you need to get the VIN number for the donor car the MFT is from and enter it into etis.ford.com and check if it has nav and park assist etc or it wont display any of the info etc on the screen.for park assist and/or amy not have nav.

 

and then get the plastic dash parts that hold the screen and then re-wire it .

 

took me a week between work and a lot of reading and finding my feet to get it right.

 

I am sure I could help you do fit it. all in the name of fun or course. so no money,

just your location is a bit far. as I have the kids at the weekend and run my own IT company all the rest of the time lol.

 

but I am thinking about putting up a youtube channel with videos etc to help.

 

let me know your thoughts.

 

Cheers

 

A

Can you retrofit navigation to an existing MFT unit?

Jesus, I didn't think it'd be that expensive. I was thinking about £300 tops! Im considering an adroid based system but I'm not sure yet. Maybe when I've paid my holiday off and Im a bit more flush!

 

Are there any down sides to the MFT? Have you lost anything like DAB or anything?

Unfortunately not stoney, the nav option has to be part of the car build. And can't be added later although that said there are a few aftermarket solutions in the USA.

Yeah Dab is gone but to be honest I never miss it.

So
no dab
heating controls on mft are reversed.
Parking sensors don't display but it beeps!

That's it apart from that its awesome. Pro's outweigh the con's

It has cost me a good but as the extras I purchased so half of that is not needed but with the mft available in the UK I am sure somewhere there us a smashed focus or mondeo. Ready for me to get a UK unit the wiring is the same. Would be easier to wait until then as you would still have dab etc.

Pity :(

I was hoping it was just a plug in module.

I assume it's all integrated into the radio unit then?

What are the aftermarket solutions? Anything that is compatible with Uk spec MFT and with European mapping availability?
