“In 2014, I replaced the stock Ford radio with an in-dash Kenwood unit. The main reason I did this was because it had a Garmin GPS, Bluetooth phone capability, and a back-up camera built in.
The truck already had decent speakers, so the sound I get with the new unit is pretty good. One drawback to this set-up is when you get those flashing lights telling you about changes in road conditions and instructing you to tune to a specific frequency. You spend five minutes navigating through menus and, when you get there, you are out of range of the signal.
I listen to smooth jazz and some blues and have a pretty good selection on CDs (this saved my sanity while droning down fifteen hundred miles of freeways going to Overland Expo 2016). I listen to Special Effects, The Rippingtons, 4play, L A Express, The Crusaders, Stevie Ray Vaughn, etc.” – Steve Timmings, 2003 Ford F350, 2013 FWC Hawk SC
