    All OEM sources remain untouched and operational. The system retains sync 3 entirely and passes the sync 3 interface and sources through the phoenix unit.

    Thank you. One more question... It’s only 32gb right? Is there a sd card expansion slot? 32gb doesn’t seem enough now days.

    I know we covered this already. Did anyone confirm steering wheel controls still work?

    Sync 3 is completely retained as oem. The truck functions as oem. Nothing changes. Just the screen. Consider this a bigger screen for sync 3. All other functions/buttons/features of the vehicle are not changed in any way. Everything operable as if it came from ford with this larger screen.

    The unit has two native USB ports that I am sure you could plug an external hard drive or thumb drive into if you wanted more space. It’s an android platform so it has all of the capability/expandability of other android tablets and phones.

    I placed my usb wire dongle in the glove box. I’m not going to be regularly connecting and disconnecting to it.

    Also,

    I placed the navigation gps antenna directly under the center dash on the metal
    Support bar. It works good there. Signals are in the green.

    I haven’t actually driven the truck yet to hear the navigation speaker.

    Has anyone been able to confirm that the 360 camera is fully functional? On the Phoenix install videos it appears that the side cameras are blocked out. That is my only reservation from ordering one right now.
