JZ confirmed what I already suspected. Can't do it on 07 and newer. If you have an 09 out later I will find the part number for you.

I've used an fm transmitter with Bluetooth before. Mine was a $100 BlackBerry one that was actually amazing because the fm transmitter was so powerful. I've also used some that were crap.

This time trying to avoid that though. Anybody have suggestions?

replace the head unit with a Bluetooth-equipped aftermarket one.

Sorry, Spartan - I live in Podunk, IN. (3rd largest city, actually...but even still it wasn't difficult to find a frequency that works all over town.)

...I had not considered how different things might be in a bigger city, but I can picture the frustration I'd experience if there were more radio station options than tractors I pass on the way to work.

A good idea, was trying to avoid that, but might be the route we take

Your easiest,cheapest bet is it get a new rAdio with the Bluetooth in it. You can get radios that look pretty stock nowadays checkout crutchfield.com for fitment. Pioneer has always been high on my list

That right there is telling me she needs to focus a lot more on learning how to drive that car . . . and a whole lot less on being a chatterbox when she's behind the wheel. The Bluetooth stuff can wait until she gets better at the driving part of driving down the roads.

I have an '07 Mustang and I have an '08 head out of a Sable in there now. I have added the SYNC and also a '13 strg wheel from a Boss w.SYNC buttons. You have to add 4 wires to the back of the radio plugs to make the strg wheel controls work. The head itself, was a perfect plug and play, even though I was told it wouldn't work by others. It was a perfectly simple, plug and play, install. Everything worked, except SYNC, which wasn't installed right then. I added the SYNC, and it came from a kit sold on eBay.

9R3Z-14D212-A is the kit and can be found on eBay for under $65, new. It has a list price of over $600 from Ford, so it is quite a steal at $65 or less. It will NOT work with heads prior to 8* start number. The 9 series numbered head is perfect, IF you can find one cheap enough. The one I used was 8G1Z-EA. The reason they don't actually fit our '07s and back is that Ford didn't add the necessary wiring to the pre-08's, just like ambient lighting until 2008 Mustang models.

Thanks for that. I appreciate it.
