I sat here for like 10 minutes and I'm still gonna be "that guy" and I apologize in advance.

Why on earth would you sabotage your grandson with a DVD player to watch when he should be driving? Movies are for home and theaters, not for cars. How old is he? Is this his first car? I look back and am happy my first car was a honda that went 0-60 in two weeks and know I did all I could to make it a few days faster and tested it every stoplight.

As far as install....I have nothing to help...realizing now I maybe didn't need to reply at all.....It's Friday!!!!

I installed one in my 2013 (4 speakers) with Sync without any issues. Here is what I bought:
HU: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_113DNX694S/Kenwood-Excelon-DNX694S-Navigation-Receiver.html?cc=02
iDataLink Kit: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_794KM...-Mustang-Dash-Kit-T-Harness-Factory-Gray.html
iDataLink Maestro: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_794AD...-ADS-MRR-Universal-Radio-Replacement-SWI.html

I suggest you pay the $25.00 for the harnesses to be wired for you. Saves so much time.

Also, might as well replace the crap paper speakers while the wallet is open. You can get very good replacement speakers for not much $. If memory servers the front door speakers and the rear deck speakers are the same on the 2013.

Lastly, if I had to do it over, I would not have spent money on a HU with navigation. I ended up using both Google maps and Waze via Apple Carplay.
