There's only the one like. I've attached a picture, but a quick ebay will find you one for about £100 plus a little bit extra for the screen. From what I remember the double din kit itself is around £80, so you're saving quite a bit by getting a factory unit

Cant get apple play on the factory units, but satnav is relatively straight forward.

Hi, I just bought a 2009 Fiesta Zetec S, so it’s the MK7. I was wondering if anybody knew if the Sony stereo with the new screen (the blue one) was compatible with it? Thanks

I have a 2011 Zetec S and just swapped over the stereo fasica to the Sony one, i think it looks better with the orange screen that matches the orange guage cluster screen, have attached pics

If you find a Sony unit from a pre-facelift then it should just be plug and play. The facelift ones, despite looking the same, are completely different inside.

Hi, my stereo already had bluetooth streaming and phone, changing the fascia just changes the look, does not add any functionality

Hi all I have MK7 with the sony basic black stereo, is it possible to purchase the new sony stereo with satnav? Would it be a straight swap, and the controls work?

I'm trying to do the same thing replace a 2009 stereo with a 2016 stereo with sat nav, but can that actually be done by just swapping them over

Can’t be done by just swapping them over, you need to replace your bluetooth module and replace it with the newer sync module, (I am not sure if that’s a straight swap) then you will have to buy the head unit, screen and facia along with gps sensor, wiring and sd card with the maps. I have a preface lift too and just opted for the Sony unit with DAB radio, the Ford nav is a bit poor in my opinion anyway.

I have a 2013 Fiesta style with the basic stereo. No phone capability. Can i fit a standard stereo from a better specification car which has the blue tooth phone function? Is the microphone built into the front of the stereo or do i have to purchase additional items as well as the unit? Thanks in advance.
