I've had my Fusion for a little over a year now and was looking into swapping the current radio to the sync navigation radio and I have a couple questions. The first one is obvious, is this able to be done? And if it can be done, will my back up camera still on the rear-view mirror or will it get switched to the monitor?

 

I tried looking it up on the internet but I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed so I figured I'd just post in a forum. Thanks y'all!

It can be done but it requires a lot of hardware - probably close to $2K and you'd need dealer programming.   Easier and cheaper to just go aftermarket.

Looks like akirby beat me to it.   Considering the work involved in swapping in a stock SYNC system, you'd really be better off finding an aftermarket solution.

 

If you really want to go big 'bang for your buck', why not spend a bit extra and go with a nice touchscreen nav aftermarket system with back-up cam.  You could probably come in under $500 and get all the bells & Whistles.   I've looked at quite a few Android-based systems that have DVD support, MP3 support, blue tooth, backup cam, etc..

Or just trade your 2012 for a 2013 with myfordtouch.  Still cheaper and easier.

Seems a bit silly to completely replace a car just to get a few more features out of the stereo.  IMHO, going aftermarket provides some serious options.

 

I know that if the stock system in my 2010 goes out, I'm pulling out all the stops on an aftermarket system.  I've even thought about doing it with a still-working stock system, and I already have Sync/BT/XM, just for the ability to add touchscreen and backup cam.  Thought about.. I doubt I'll actually do it until it's necessary.

Well you do get a lot more than just a new stereo but of course aftermarket will be cheaper with more options, provided you're not hell bent on keeping a factory system.

There are a lot of options discussed in these forums.

 

Here is one that gives you a 10.1" screen, Android 5.1, navigation, backup camera support, etc.

 

All for under $400.
