These conversions require quite a few more parts to complete; they typically require a new 8 HVAC bezel, conversion harness, screen brackets, USB hub, GPS antenna and USB extension cable.
Depending on your vehicle you may require more/less parts. We do not stock all of the parts needed for these conversions, you would have to source them from other vendors. SimplyMichigan has started stocking some complete pre-built conversion kits for certain vehicles. Complete Screen/APIM Replacements: Typically you wouldn't need to replace both the APIM and the display at the same time, if you're experiencing a black screen it's likely you will just need a APIM replacement. We do have APIM replacements available for sale in a different listing.If you do need an entire replacement, this listing (check screen compatibility) is all you would need.

For this region we recommend purchasing a non-navigation infotainment system. If you're determined to get a navigation system, you can use a 3rd party tool to only install the maps you need. Are there any issues with steering wheel controls or the back up camera? No, none of those will be effected.
Do non-navigation systems still need a replacement GPS antenna? Yes, non-navigation systems still use the GPS for compass control. Are there any issues converting Lincoln vehicles? With some older Lincoln vehicles you may have to trim your stock screen brackets to clear the repositioned yellow screen connector.
Do you sell modules from 2016? We don't offer APIM's from 2016 donor vehicles; the 4 biggest APIM model numbers that you typically see are GXXX-14G370-BM, GXXX-14G370-BL, GXXX-14G370-CM and GXXX-14G370-CL. These are generation1 modules and have a higher failure rate that Ford is aware of and fixed in later generations. Will upgrading to Sync 3 effect my SiriusXM subscription? No, your XM subscrption is managed by your ACM and is not effected.Do I really need a new dislay? Mine is perfect Yes, older screens use a different technology and a totally different connector. My vehicle has an instrument cluster display in the dash (on the sides of the speedometer) of the vehicle which displays road names, speed limits, etc. Will this feature be retained when upgrading to Sync 3? Unfortunately there are some incompatibilities with Sync 3 and these instrument cluster displays. Depending on your vehicle and the firmware version for these displays you may lose these features and only a compass will be displayed (or this information may only be present when you have an active navigational destination set). It is perfect, everything works perfectly. All of the recommendations you made for the conversion parts were exactly what was needed... I just wanted to say thanks. I received the Nav unit today and I'm really impressed with the condition and the way it was packaged. Thanks for being so thorough in the description. It went in quick and works flawlessly so far. All the information you provide in the listings make it really easy and I just had to wait for a "recessed" unit.
Did not realize until it was in and working, that you had sent me the latest and most up-to-date unit - that was a nice surprise. We have it installed, we did the master reset and it is working perfectly. I knew nothing about swapping those units but you sure did and you made sure that I did as well.I just wanted to personally thank you for everything! If I hear of someone wanting a navigation unit I know where to send them. Keep up the great work and best of luck to you with SimplyMichigan in the future.
When I first decided to upgrade I found Infotainment. And then I found 4DTech. Both were awesome for their tutorial videos and that's about it. Their prices were so outrageous.
Long story short was I knew I could do better and that's how I found SimplyMichigan. Beware of APIM modules coming from Overseas/China and in the USA. Some modules look fine but upon further inspection aren't correct at all. If you're curious about this we included some photos in the listing for things to look out for.
