    Review & Install Video

    If you have an '87 to 2006 Mustang, you might wanna check out the Hands Free MP3 Adapter. This device not only lets you take hands-free phone calls, but it also lets you play your music from your phone or any portable media through your car speakers. It's a plug-and-play unit that's great for someone looking to easily bring some of the modern conveniences to their older generation Mustang that doesn't come from the factory with these abilities. The install for this is easy. It's a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter, and you can plan on it taking about 45 minutes to get in the car. The first thing I'll say about this is that this isn't wireless. This won't allow for a Bluetooth connection. You will need to plug into this. The good news about that is that this will play from anything that has a 3 and 1/2-millimeter headphone jack. That means your smartphone, a portable media device, MP3 player, iPod, satellite radio, or even a CD player. This does leave you with a lot of options, which is a nice thing, because you aren't limited. The other thing that's a little bit different about this is that, once you're plugged in, not only can you play music, but you're also connected to your smartphone, so you can take phone calls, too, hands-free. The way that this works is it plugs into your factory radio. You don't have to worry about tying up your 12-volt socket since it'll be plugged in directly to the factory radio and be hidden behind the dash. This won't interfere with the radio either like some other options out there do. This is more of an extension of the factory radio than anything else. As far as price, you can expect to spend just over $100 for this. This really is the only device that's currently available that'll let you route both phone calls and music through your car stereo. There are other ways to get music through your car stereo and even Bluetooth options, but nothing that will also allow for phone calls and other portable media. The install for this isn't difficult. It's a one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You can plan on spending about 45 minutes getting this installed. There isn't one correct way to install this, and you can chain off your mounting points and your routing points off if you want to, but that's gonna be up to you. Of course, the install will change slightly depending on what your Mustang you're installing this on. You'll need to get to the radio, so you're gonna have to remove your shifter handle, shifter bezel, and center radio bezel. Unclip all of the accessories, and unbolt the bolts holding the radio in place. Gently remove the radio, and unclip the radio harness and the antenna. Connect the black antenna cable to the radio. Connect the orange antenna cable to the Hands Free device. You can use zip ties to mount the device somewhere, like to the radio mounting bracket, for instance, behind the dash. Start routing the cables where you want them to go. You can tuck the cords anywhere, but make sure that the jack is where you can get to it. Unwind the black and red cable, route the red cable to the fuse box, and you'll need to bend the end a little bit to get the fuse panel protector back on. Find a good ground for the black wire, and then you reinstall the radio and the trim pieces that you removed. That's gonna wrap things up for the Hands Free MP3 Adapter for the '87 to '06 Mustang, but you can always check it out more online right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Convenience. Mustang owners know all to well that these older generation cars just don't have all of the modern conveniences of today. One draw back would be not having the ability to take hands free phone calls or listen to your portable media easily while driving. Install this Hands Free MP3 Adapter in your 1987-2006 Mustang and finally bridge that generation gap. Listen to your favorite music or talk to your friends and family hands free!

    Hands Free Connection. Connect your MP3 device to the 3.5mm jack and select your favorite song or take phone calls through your Mustang's factory speakers. This Hands Free Adapter allows you to enjoy music in stereo from your portable media device or smartphone, including MP3 players, an iPod, CD Players, Satellite Radio or any other device with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

    Simple Installation. The Hands Free MP3 ME Adapter is designed to be a plug-and-play unit that won't leave a bunch of wires taking up your 12V socket and will be out of site behind your dash. It routes your portable media directly to your factory radio, so there is never any radio interference with this unit as some other competitor units do. With this plugin installation, you won't need to change your existing radio or speakers.

    Application. This Hands Free MP3 Adapter is specifically designed to be installed in any 1987-2006 Mustang, including LX, GT, V6, Bullitt, Mach 1 and SVT Cobra models.

    so with this device I wont be able to listen to the regular radio stations when it is hooked up?

    Mach1azure

    • This device is synched to 91.1fm. You can't listen to a radio station that happens to be 91.1fm but you can push any other pre-set station to listen to other stations on the radio even though the device is connected to your MP3 device. I hope this helps.

    TheWeatherman

    • The Hands Free MP3 Adapter is designed around the standard antenna plug design used from 1987-2006. If you 85 has the same antenna plug, this will not have any issues working, however most will not have this same setup.

      Depends what you're looking for...

      If you're a serious audiophile that spends more money on speakers than sneakers, this is not the product for you. If you're a guy looking to use Sirius/i(whichever iCrap product you own)/phone in your car and don't want to disturb the factory aesthetics, this is the product for you. Be forewarned: the instructions SUCK. Do yourself a favor and pick up an actual piggy back fuse prior to install. Sound quality is decent if you keep the volume on the device you're connected to between 1/2 and 2/3 of max volume. Took me about 20 minutes to install on an SN95.

      Decent

      The install was pretty easy. There is a local radio station on the frequency that it uses but it still works!!! So, that is a big plus. You may need a ground loop filter/noise isolator to get rid of the hum from the alternator. I installed one and now it works great with my mp3 player and with my cellphone.

      STATIC

      After spending a couple hours figuring out how to set this up and flipping through the radio to find the right connection, i finally got it but now theres this horrible static sound that is louder than my music. I noticed another reviewer mentioned the same thing, not happy in the slightest about this product and probably will be returning it, not worth the money.

      Waist of money, its time to buy a new radio if you want to enjoy commercial free music. Static between songs, weak right channel after installing, zero instruction. Removed it from my car and all is back to normal. Ordered a new deck with blue tooth, you should do the same. Now to see how this return policy works.

      Good product

      Bought this so I could keep my Mach 1 looking stock but I wanted to play more than just radio and CDs. I installed it in 30 minutes. It was very straight forward. Unfortunately I had a fair amount of static, so I started with the ground. I stripped the ground wire and reinstalled around ground screw. That didn't fix it. So I checked the connections and they all were fine so the only part that could be the issue was the power side. I stripped the wire (getting rid of the connector) and wrapped it around the fuse I was attaching it to. That fixed 90 of the static. All I can assume is the ohms were off. The rest is probably my phone lol but with the music playing the static is gone. Great product for keeping your stock look while adding some new conveniences.

      Good MP3 player Option

      I purchased the MP3ME for the aux option that my year doesn't have. The converter works well once installed. I just wanted to give my input that most others have as well... First, the only trouble I had was the power source which was not the products fault. The fuse marked "Radio (start)" in the cars manual was where I thought to piggy back the power source from but it didn't work for me. Its best to purchase a "fuse tap" at an auto parts store and use an open fuse slot for the power source. Second, I mounted the unit behind the radio while it was out, this way its never in the way and hidden. Lastly, the directions aren't bad but not in depth, like only turning your MP3 player to 2/3 volume is a sound quality must. Overall the product itself rocks to be able to listen to your tunes.

      Not impressed

      Let me start off with there's no good instructions how to hook up the hands-free device or how to take anything apart to install it. I also get a loud static sound in between every song which is very annoying (sounds like it loses a signal and that shouldn't happen with the music downloaded on your Phone or iPod ). But when a song is playing it sounds great as long as your phone or iPod volume is halfway. From what I've experienced I think $109 is way to much for this product and DO NOT recommend it! You be better off Replacing the radio for $200-$250 then waste your time with this product.

      Does as claimed

      Install: Pro Install was pretty simple. Plug the device into the antenna port on the radio and then the radio antenna into the device. Simple What took up the most install time was deciding where you want the MP3 adapter box to live. Using double sided tape, I found a spot up under the dash where it could sit freely. Install: Con The fuse tap supplied in the kit is very cheap. A fuse just long enough to wedge into the existing radio fuse is not the correct way to connect into your existing electrical fuse box. For over 100 bucks, the manufacturer should provide a fuse tap that sits firmly over the radio 10 fuse. I got one on eBay for 10 cents or you can go to your local pep boys and they should have a fuse tap kit or piggy back fuse. Use of device: Note when using you have to be somewhat patient. It takes a few seconds for the device to transfer over to start playing your iPod or media player device, but when it does, it sounds great. Note when switching back to radio, it won't be instant. It takes a few seconds for the device to kick back over and allow your regular antenna frequency to play again. Overall I give it 4 stars. They lose half for the cheap fuse tap ( please do yourself a favor and buy a good one, you will eliminate the possibility of ever messing up your electrical in the future) and they lose half a star for the speed lag of the unit. I do recommend this product as long as you are ok with those 2 things that stood out to me.

      Purchased this a few weeks ago. Instructions were non existent but common sense plays a major roll. I personally couldn't get the piggy back set up but I ran it out to the engine bay an tied it into the ign fuse. Only real negative is in-between songs it goes back to FM when songs are changing. Other than that it is a great product

      Decent Audio Quality

      While your music won't sound as good as a native aux cord or Bluetooth setup, this is nevertheless a fairly easy way to modernize your mustangs sound system. My only problem is the instructions are poor and the power wire is tricky-I ended up stripping it and wrapping it around the fuse after struggling for a while and it works fine.

The only thing is there is ZERO instructions with it, but I have done many electronic installs so I knew how., but if you are a novice the lack of instructions may present a challenge.
