Recommended Posts

Hi all
first time user looking for any help or advice re Ford Focus comms pack head unit.
I have a Ford Focus 1.8Tdci Zetec facelift model with the standard radio head unit installed no bluetooth

My daughter has got 2009 titanium Focus with the comms pack head unit but she gas taken it out and installed an after market unit (not Ford)
What I need to know is will the comms pack head unit out of my daughters car work in my Zetec if so what extra equipment and parts will I need to make it work in mine.
any help or info would be very gratefully received. 
thanks in advance.
attached are the 2 images of the head units, the 2nd is mine and the 1st is my daughters comms pack head unit.

depending on the aerial connector in use (as thats a standard 6000CD, you probably will not have DAB, and you wont have GPS) so these wont work. Beyond that though, probably FM / AM radio will work spot on, and you could get an external GPS for it?

You would then need to add in a bluetooth module and enable it on the gem board I believe, but it should be feasible.

sorry to be a noob Jee

but you wouldn't know what bluetooth module I would need and sorry to be a noob again but what is a gem board and how would I enable it

Also you would need steering wheel controls and some software to enable it.
