Hey, guys. Adam here with americanmuscle.com. And today we're taking a closer look at, installing and walking through the Raxiom by Insane Audio Navigation Head Unit available for the 2010 to '14 Mustang. Now, if you're the owner of a Mustang and you may have a very base model but you're looking to upgrade your head unit to something that has touchscreen, a lot more modern, has a ton of features including GPS and Navigation, Bluetooth, this is gonna be a great way to go if you're looking for something that is not OEM. Now, there are options in the category to give you an aftermarket head unit but also keep a OEM performance pack tech package interior, not the case here. As you can see, this is very aftermarket, it looks very different, it makes you stand out from the crowd, but it still looks like a modern set.Now, this one, in particular, keeps that top screen here with your clock and your external temperature and those little pieces of information, but it also replaces your CD player with two small units to use climate control and a bottom larger touchscreen that you'd see in most aftermarket worlds and categories. This one here is about a six-inch touchscreen that uses a 1.6-gigahertz processor with four gigabytes of RAM, 32 gigabytes of storage, and it allows you to not only use a 3D map, the GPS, but it also allows you to use upgraded Bluetooth 4.0 LE, it also allows you to use a movie screen, you can plug in your iPhone. It's compatible with iPhone and Android. There's just a number of really useful features that your base model Mustang just doesn't have at all. Now, if you ask me, the S197 is new enough to include a screen and some Bluetooth and all that good stuff, but if you didn't have that, this is just such a good way to go.This particular unit on the bottom here is gonna control all of your menu options. This is gonna work a lot like an Android device, smart devices as well. So, the main menu here has a bunch of different options: radio, music, Bluetooth apps, Bluetooth music, torque, and RockCam. Torque and RockCam, I want to start off with. RockCam is more of an aftermarket backup or front-facing camera. If you're using an aftermarket one, that's gonna be the way that you connect to it. Jumping right home, you'll see on your side here there's that home button, so that'll take you right back to this menu.Next to that is the OBD check torque. That is a very interesting app which I think makes this very unique. As you can see, we have six gauges displayed on our head unit. Not many things can really do this. Not many aftermarket units in the category will have this option here, so very unique. You have revs, speed, coolant, acceleration, throttle response, and your boost gauge. Because our vehicle is off, we're not really reading anything, but you have that here and if you scroll up, you're able to track your zero to 100 kilometers per hour or zero to 60 time, your eighth-mile time, quarter-mile time, and then you have horsepower and things like that you can set up to track. Great feature for guys hitting the drag strip. Above that, you have your DTC. It'll run a misfire, fuel system, component system type catalyst, heated catalyst, evaporative system. There's so many checks it will take into consideration. So, not only do you have gauge monitoring capabilities like a handheld tuner without needing to plug it into the OBD2, you're also gonna be able to read and clear diagnostic trouble codes.Now, if you scroll down, you can start to get really specific with one gauge at a time. Now, here we have revs, so if you want it to hold that up while you're driving, you have that. You can even customize things on the dashboard as far as themes and the way the gauges are laid out. You can hit the settings at the bottom and add a display, you can datalog if you're running on the drag strip or if you just got a new tune and you wanna datalog your engine vitals and your performance, you can do so, you can email log straight here using the Wi-Fi connectivity. It's just so useful for the guys who wanna take full advantage of some of these features. So, those are really good to do. I'm gonna hit back to the main menu here using our home button. Simple things. You don't really need to go through, this radio. This is really what that stock radio is gonna look like here. You can scroll through at the top just by using your finger, you can do a really light scan. It's not really jumping through too much, it'll jump through some of the menus there. You can also save your presets, AM/FM buttons, local buttons, search as well. So, that'll scan through and there is really just a number of pretty basic features with the radio unit.Now, going back home, there's music. Now, music is gonna come in handy if you plug your iPod and using that connector that we put in our glove box or if you're using music through an SD card. You can save that to an SD card and you can load that directly to the unit. As I said earlier, there's 32 gigabytes of storage, so you can store some of that in this. Going back to the menu. Bluetooth, you can connect your phone and use Bluetooth dialing to connect to your contacts or if you're playing music, Bluetooth music is a separate app. Speaking of apps, if you click on this, this is where a number of those things I mentioned earlier, Adobe Acrobat, calculator, Gmail, Google. You can use hotspot on your phone, you can use connectivity, wireless connectivity to go right on the internet. This is crazy. Of course, you wanna be safe when you're on the road, keep that in mind. But using these apps can be very, very useful. What you can also take into consideration is your file browser. So, if you use your SD card to load movies or if you load any kind of video, you can do it right on the SD card and go to movies, pull it up in the files and you can watch that right on the unit. So, if you're taking a long road trip, you got the girlfriend or the husband in the side in the passenger seat, throw on a movie, let them relax. That can be pretty, pretty useful.Now, aside from that, navigation is its own button here. You can click on navigation, it brings you up to the screen. Now, this is really the main menu you'll be given so we can show map. Now, our GPS is hooked up. We're in a warehouse, so I can't imagine this is going to get the best connectivity inside where we are so I don't see this updating, but that's what that's gonna look like. Now, from the menu, you can do things like put in your destination, your route options, there's more settings, check sunrise to sunset, your trip monitor, country information. Really good navigation if you don't have one from the factory. The AMS button we're not using here, you obviously have the volume knob which you can click to mute and unmute, and then bottom is gonna be your SD card slot. So, overall, really, really good system to use, it's very simple to understand. Now, you have the ability to scroll here if you have apps saved and downloaded, they will populate these screens and then, of course, you can click on that for your time. You can set an alarm, timer, stopwatch, and then if you scroll down, it's more of a notification center almost. You can click on some of the recently opened things, check your Wi-Fi connectivity, click again, you get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, volume, brightness if you wanna adjust your brightness and a number of other really nifty features.This unit up here allows you on the left hand to use your climate control. Now, your left screen has the on-off button, you hit that, air conditioner comes on, you can control the speed of the fans, you can control how it's set to feet, face. If it's up on the defrost, you have that option, you just tap the little guy figure right there. From there, you can turn it off, you can control your climates. It's a very simple, very straightforward. On the right side here you have defrost. Now, for some units you may have heated seats. Those things will change slightly depending on your particular model. You can jump in the menu, there's vehicle settings. You can change time and date, things like that. Time is also displayed on your left side. The ITC settings are things like radio type, picture settings, volume. Now, jumping into it, you wanna make sure you're picking Pioneer for your radio type and you can hit back to make sure everything is set up. So, that off the bat is gonna make sure you're in the right position. There's volume as well, you can change the volume of beeps. Every time you touch a button, it'll beep. I don't think many people are the biggest fan of that, so we're gonna go ahead and turn it back off.Finally, there's version. So, top two screens, very straightforward, really climate control based with very small typical settings you'd find in your menu. Now, this one, in particular, comes in right around the $1,400 mark making it one of the more premium options in the category as far as price tag. The reason this one's a little bit higher than the Navos unit is simply because it's such a drastic change in materials. This is going from your basic screen up here in the CD player or if you have the tech package, your screen up top to something that does clearly look aftermarket. So, I think the big change in appearance is gonna be why it also tacks on a little bit more to the price tag. Now, as far as functionality, this is gonna do all if not more of the same things that the Navos unit in the category does as well. So, when you're comparing the two side by side, ultimately what it comes down to is do you want something that looks OEM or do you want something that is very different?Install for this I'm gonna give two out of three wrenches on a difficulty meter, it's not as hard as most people may think it is. It comes with a lot of harnesses that can off the bat look pretty confusing, but they are all plug and play. They are all going to snap right into each other, there's no cutting, there's no splicing, there's no drilling required. It comes with things like an iPod cable and a USB cable to make sure it's compatible with your phone or your iPod depending on which generation iPod you have. It also comes with additional wiring harnesses for RCA. Now, the RCA is gonna be for the guys who have additional subwoofers and amplifiers and sound systems, guys who may want to install additional television units, additional media players. It also comes with, and I think this is a really key feature here, it comes with preset wiring to make sure if you have a front-facing or a backup camera that you'll be able to use that with this screen down here. That's also a really good point for the guys who have that base model Mustang. You don't have a backup camera, so if you wanted to pick an aftermarket one up, you have the ability to wire that in very simply using the harnesses included in the kit. In addition to that, you have a microphone harness that we mount right up here to the steering column, there's new GPS harnesses as well and there's antenna adapters to make sure you're retaining your factory antenna. So, really, the installation, I'm gonna give two out of three wrenches, it has a lot of steps included that you wanna make sure you're following properly. But given that there is no modification really required, it is pretty straightforward. It's gonna take you about an hour, maybe two hours from start to finish depending on your experience with head units like this.Tools used in this install include a ratchet, extension, 9/32 deep socket, a panel removal tool, and a Phillips head screwdriver.The first step you wanna tackle for the install is to uninstall some of your factory components. Now, we have to gain access to the back of our factory unit. In order to do that, what we're gonna do, start by popping our center console and we're gonna remove this trim panel around your shifter. Now to get this off, what you're gonna do really is you can grab a panel removal tool, but I actually find it easy to pop that center console and you're gonna pull up where the cup holder is and it'll disconnect from one end. You can work your fingers under it to just pop this all off. All right. Once that's disconnected, we're gonna take our shift knob off. For our manual guys, shift knob just unscrews, shift boot comes off. Auto guys maybe a little bit different, you may need to pop off your shifter bezel in order to get that to slide around. All right. Underneath of that, you're gonna disconnect the harness connecting to your traction control, hazard, and your trunk release. Now, we can set this aside. Next up, we wanna take off this entire face panel. In order to do that, there are two 9/32 screws, bolts that you're gonna remove, one on the bottom of each side. Now, for these, you don't wanna use an impact gun. Also, there's not a whole lot of room for an impact gun. Just grab a simple ratchet and get these guys out. You also want to hold on to them because they may be reinstalled later. All right. With those two screws out of the way or bolts, what you wanna do is get your fingers under here and pry this guy out. Now, if you need, you can grab that panel removal tool, get a little more leverage. All right. Now, when you get this off, you wanna tilt it forward toward your shift knob. Just make sure your hand is in the way so it doesn't scratch anything up. There's one harness you got to disconnect. I'm just gonna pinch that and set this aside. Next step here, we wanna disconnect our CD unit. Now, this is held on by four of those 9/32 bolts, one on each corner. So, grab your socket, work those guys off. Can be pretty tight in there, if you do drop screws, just make sure maybe you have a magnet on hand to retrieve them. Just be careful with them coming out. All right. With all four of those out, can pull this guy straight back. Now, it's gonna be pretty tight. You're not gonna be able to pull it all the way out to see the harnesses, so what you're going to do is go straight back and you're gonna pinch and disconnect any harnesses connecting straight to this. There's two harnesses and then your antenna. All right. So, we have this out, you'll see that it'll be harness here, a large one, a smaller one, and then your antenna just pull straight back. For this, you can set it aside.The next step you're gonna do the same thing for the top one. But before you pull anything out, let's disconnect that front harness so it's out of the way. Grab your 9/16 socket and get the other four out. With all four out, pull straight back. On the back of this, we have one harness which you can see a lot easier if you just twist it, pinch, and disconnect. Set this aside. Guys, we got our factory head unit off of our '14 GT behind me next to our Raxiom by Insane Audio. This thing is a night and day difference. Now, we already talked about all of the heavy details of your new component. I wanted to take you through some of the similarities and differences between them visually and how much of an impact it'll have on your interior. Now, on my right here we have our factory components. Now, this bottom portion is really for your CD player, this top portion is where all your information would be displayed, which is more up above. Now, as you can see, this cutout is gonna be right up here on your factory unit. That is for the most part retained, it's really below it that things get completely different. Now, of course, you can see that there isn't any single physical button, everything is gonna be touchscreen which is I think the biggest visual difference. Of course, this is gonna be your touchscreen unit which is I would say about six inches. It's not the biggest screen that you would see in maybe a 2018 Mustang, but it is a significant upgrade. Aside from that, the trim itself is almost identical to your factory trim. There really isn't anything that would give away that it's aftermarket. You would really think that this is a stock unit. What I think I really like about it as well, has these two individual screens that display two different pieces of engine vitals or information on there which I really like. So, you're really going from something that's outdated to a really big upgrade in modernization to your interior and all in all, it blends in very nicely. So, your factory unit, we're gonna settle out nonsense aside, we're getting rid of all the old outdated knobs, going full touchscreen. We're gonna start with the install. I'm gonna start running some cables before we install any units in there. Now, the first two things I wanna do are pretty simple. They're gonna go to your glove box. It is, of course, optional. You can run it under the shifter, but I think the easiest solution is glove box. It's gonna be your iPod cable and your USB cord. Now, first thing's first, this iPod cable is the really, really old, very large connector. This is something that you might not even need to run if you have any iPhone or iPod newer than 2011. This is gonna be not really needed. I'm sure guys have their own cables they wanna run, so if you wanna grab your iPhone cable or your iPod cable, anything like that, you wanna run it now to the glove box. The instructions included in your kit tell you to drill a hole to run those cables, that isn't even really completely necessary. I'm gonna show you why. We're gonna start here with the USB one. USB I think is going to be the most useful. That way you can plug in your phone cables to charge or things like that. What we're gonna do is take the portion that's the female that you plug your USB into. We're gonna go straight to the right and into our glove box. So, if you pop this glove box right up here in the top left corner that connects to the inside of your radio, you'll be able to feel this cord and pull it through. That way you don't have to drill any holes. Now, when you shut it, it doesn't come in contact with anything, but if you wanted this to come through with the glove box closed, you can drill a hole maybe on the side here, but I always find that it's really just not completely necessary. I'm sure over time shutting this on the cable, it might take a toll on it. But we all have, I know new iPhone cables and USB cables every so often so I don't see it being a problem. I think this is gonna be an easier solution. So, run that into the glove box. Now, you may not be using this one, but I'm gonna show you how to run it anyway. It's the exact same thing, so we'll just do that for both. So, we're gonna take that large connector and run that in there as well. Now, what we wanna do is pull it through so that there isn't a ton of wiring on the inside here. We're just gonna tuck that and we'll use those later. Shut your glove box.Next up, guys, we're gonna run our microphone cord. Now, this one has an AUX connector on the other end and some 3M. What you're gonna do is run this to your steering column. This is one of those cases, guys, you can run it wherever you see fit. This is gonna be the easiest solution. So you're gonna unravel that cord. You wanna make sure the AUX side is behind the radio. This portion, you're gonna feed down this side. But before we do that, let's lower our steering wheel. That's gonna give us just a little bit more room to work with. All right. From here, take that microphone, feed that through, and you're just gonna try to find your own fingers to pinch it and pull. All right. Once you get this through, feed that excess back there. Now, what you wanna do is find a spot that works for you. This is gonna be your typical spot. Don't wanna put it to the steering wheel itself because when you turn the wheel, it's gonna move with it. You wanna put it just behind the wheel. The alternative would be to put it up here, but then you have a cable running, so it's really all personal preference. Once you find your spot, you're gonna peel off that 3M backing and stick it. If the interior is super dirty, you wanna give that a wipe with some alcohol wipes before you stick to make sure it gets a good bond. Right there and that's a good spot. All right. So, you can pull your excess cables behind the radio unit and if you want, you can wrap some of those cables up to make it a little neater. All right. Now, with that, you can use your zip tie or the twist tie that comes with the kit.All right. So, we're back on the table to assemble a couple of brackets on the side of our touchscreen unit. So, you're gonna grab the brackets. They are labeled left and right, so we're gonna take the right bracket, start here on the right side. Line up the holes. There are several holes, so you wanna make sure you're using the right two slots to go to the ones that line up and use that as a reference. So, we'll start there. Grab the small Phillips head screws included in the kit and you're gonna tighten this down. The good thing about the brackets is they're slotted so you can slide and align as you need to. Now, when you're installing these brackets, there are so many holes on the sides. You wanna make sure you're just going to whichever holes line up to these brackets included. This is a more universal unit. The brackets included are vehicle-specific, so there's a number of holes for different vehicles, but this one, these will line up to certain ones. So, you just wanna make sure when you are looking at it, start from the left side. You can see your two left ones line up to the holes, and then from there, you have a bottom one. So, as long as you're really securing this with as many screws that line up, then you're good to move on. Perfect.Next up while we're on the table, you can do this here. We're gonna grab our GPS antenna and this is gonna screw into the port labeled GPS on the back of the unit here. So, you're just gonna grab that and give her a twist, it screws right into place. All right. Once you get that nice and tight, what you're gonna do is take the GPS module and it's magnetized, and that's gonna magnetize right to the top of the unit. Now, there is a ton of extra cable here which is a little bit more unnecessary, but if you wanted to mount this somewhere else in the vehicle to give you some slack to go deeper. But for now, we're gonna go right to there. Now, in order to get this to stick, peel off the 3M tape over the magnet, just stick it right in place. Now, when you do stick it, you don't wanna stick it over the vent holes. Stick right in the middle, maybe a little bit more over the diagram that's on the top of the unit. All right. From there, grab your Wi-Fi antenna and go to the opposite end to the port labeled Wi-Fi. Now, for this, you just wanna make sure this is pointing upward.All right, guys. At this point, we're gonna start plugging in our harnesses and getting ready with our bottom touchscreen unit. Now, what we wanna do is make sure we're plugging in as much as possible back here before we put our units into place. We're gonna take our main harness, which is this one with everything already pre-spliced. Take your larger almost gray or tan plug, that's gonna go to your factory main harness inside the vehicle. Line that up and give it a click. You'll hear the click. You wanna make sure that's completely secure. From there, we're gonna start plugging stuff in that fits. Now, this white plug here is gonna go to our climate control plug from the factory, those two we'll lock in together as well. Next, what we're gonna do is take our unit. We're not gonna put it in place just yet, we're just gonna sit it right here next to us. Take the other end of the main harness and plug it into the back of this. Those will click down. All right. Now, there's a couple of cables in this harness that are not gonna be used at all. For the base Mustang owners, that's gonna be the case. So, this blue wire is not used, this larger grey connector is not gonna be used. There's a couple of options here that aren't used. But for guys who have a subwoofer, that's gonna go to one of your harnesses. For guys who have a big amp, if you have an amp remote, this is a precut wire there for that. So, there's a couple of options. If you have them, you wanna utilize them. We're not gonna actually have to worry about that at the moment.Next up, guys, we wanna install our factory AM/FM antenna adapters. Now, these two included in the kit will go together. So, what you'll do is take the teal colored and the black and purple and they'll connect together. Just make sure you line them up properly. Once they click in, take this end here and plug it into your factory harness. This goes right into that plastic retainer. That'll clip. The other end is gonna go into the bottom left marked radio. That, you wanna push all the way down until it seats firmly. From here, let's bring this a little closer, we're gonna connect what we put in our glove box. So, grab the USB. The male end is gonna go into the bottom left. Now, you'll notice there are two USB ports. It's a good opportunity to run an additional one. If you wanna have an extra, maybe you wanna plug it in and run it to your glove box as well, like an iPhone cable, something similar, that's up to you. We're gonna use the single one for right now. Also, the other iPod cable that we mentioned earlier is gonna plug into this, similar to like the coax cable. All right. Those only go one way. Match up those arrows and they'll push in pretty snug.The next step may be a little confusing, but I wanna make sure you guys understand. This is a separate harness included in the kit, this is the RCA harness. You'll notice it has a lot of female ends of red, white, teal, yellow cables, video, audio cables. This is all for guys who have a sound system and for guys who have custom backup cameras, additional auxiliary items like that. Now, if you have a sub or an amplifier, things that you wanna hook up additional wiring to, that's what you'll use this for. Now, because of that, we are not actually going to use any of these. This is all custom. This is for guys who need this. If you do need it, you'll have the harnesses from your unit to go into this. But this end, I wanna show you guys where that would go if you did wanna use this harness. This end here is gonna go into the spot that's marked RCA. It's the larger one on the back of this unit. That would hook in just like this. And you'd feed all of your amplifier, your subwoofers, your backup camera wiring to this. Now, a lot of your amps will have wiring that will go into this RCA cables, but for your backup camera, you would use the splicing cables. There's also splicing cables on the back of the original harness that we installed. So, just wanna make sure you're doing that appropriately if you're using any of those additional sold separately accessories. So, we're gonna leave that installed just to show you guys how that would look. But this is pretty much gonna get tucked here. If you're running a backup camera, of course, you wanna go into your center console and run it to the back of the unit. So, that's there.The additional two slots here are for TV. If you have, I don't know, additional TV units that you wanna run to this and video units, you can install separate harnesses not included in the kit, but those are left open and has that feature built into this touchscreen unit so you can have control over those accessories. So, that really takes care of the back of this. The last thing we're gonna do is the microphone. So, you just wanna make sure you don't forget that. The microphone if you remember we wrapped up some of the additional cables, that's going to go right into the mic slot. Once that's popped in, you can tuck your wires. There's only two other things we have to do with the harnesses in here which will go to the trim panel. So, we're not gonna fully install this, we're just gonna tuck it in and get ready. Your trim panel with the two additional screens have two slots that's going to attach to these two harness clips. So, what we're gonna do is set that aside for right now, but we're gonna have to push our touchscreen in. Grab these two harnesses and hold that to the front so you at least know you have room to install them. With this all the way in, what we're gonna do is make sure this is accessible, put in our four screws that hold on our touchscreen and then we'll worry about our trim.Now, I thought it would be worthwhile mentioning here. For the guys using the RCA harness for additional subwoofers and sound systems and stuff like that, I find it easy to run that cable, the female ends of this right here underneath your touchscreen. So, when you run your sub, you route those wires under your center console and they easily plug in right here. You would just route them under this trim and they would be right here and easy to work with. That way they're not tucked behind the unit, you don't have to uninstall everything. So, this sets yourself up if you want to install them in the future too. They're right here and you don't have to disassemble. All right. At this point, grab four screws, those 9/32 ones that we originally took off, we're gonna replace those in the corners holding this touchscreen into place. Now, we can reinstall our top factory screen. Now, the reason we took this off originally was to give ourselves more room to work with, especially when going to the glove box and the steering column. Now, to get that reinstalled, you wanna plug in your larger harness to the back module. From there, mount that right up, grab your factory 9/32 bolts and tighten it down.All right, guys. At this point, you can put your trim panel in with the two additional screens. Now, it's gonna be a little bit tight, but you wanna grab the larger clip is gonna go to the back here and so is the smaller one that we pulled out. Now, I know it's gonna be tough to see, but you just got to work your way around there with your fingers and snap them into place. All right. Once you hear the click, grab the whole trim panel and snap it into place. Once these guys are seated and you have it clicked in, grab your two remaining factory screws and tighten them down to the bottom here. All right. Now we can start working on our center console trim. All right. Now, for that trim, you just want to make sure you're clipping on your harness first going underneath your hazard light and your trunk latch and your traction control. From there, depending on whether it's an auto or manual, slide your shift boot into place as you pop your center console. Drop all that on, line up the shift boot, snap your trim in. Grab your shift boot, and thread it back in. All right. Shut your center console. Make sure everything is set in place, test your system, and you're good to go. All right, guys. The last step here is to grab your OBD2 port connector for your Bluetooth, that's gonna go right here into your OBD2.Well, guys, that's gonna wrap up my review and install for the Raxiom by Insane Audio Navigation Head Unit for the '10 to '14 Mustang. And guys, you can pick yours up for about 1,400 bucks right here at americanmuscle.com.

Something New and Different
Dre19, I'm not sure what shifter knob setup your running? But for my stock shifter with an aftermarket shift knob, this setup will work. Don't knock it until you tried it. This is not a paid response.Helpful (3)

How much did they pay TimothyD to leave a fake review? It looks unappealing to the eye and you need a Short shifter to really utilize it. You could buy each piece individually, the screen would be in the middle and would cost half the price.Helpful (72)
