Ford Focus stereo removal and installation guide

The meaning of focus is the focus, which is one of the housekeeping models of Ford in Europe. Compared with those which has evolved four to five generations, Fox is apparently a junior and was born in 1998. The development nowadays is the second generation. Now, the main vehicle of this Ford in Europe has been settled in China and became the focus of much attention.

This Fox hatchback 2.0MT sports model is equipped with single-disc CD + radio, but without DVD and navigation function.

Owners need to install DVD and navigation functions for their beloved cars. After some searching, comparison, owners choose the OemCarGps E7012NAVI focus dvd navigation for the future upgrade.

The OemCarGps E7012NAVI developed specifically for the Ford Focus, a multimedia navigation machine, which is specially designed according to the appearance of the original car center console. It can support DVD/VCD/MP3 playing and feature built-in GPS navigation, full-featured touch screen operation. Its biggest feature is the 800×480 resolution high-definition digital display. The display quality has higher definition than ordinary analog display (resolution 480×234), brighter colors and faster refresh rate.

The OemCarGps user interface is very beautiful and there are many user-friendly features, including the Ipod access, reversing camera. You can add MP3, MP4, the performance of which is excellent. So once it is launched on the market, that is the concern of many owners.

Now, we look at the effect of this Fox audio-visual navigation system before and after the use.

First, we look at the original car audio systems.

This is Focus Original stereo, single disc CD + radio, 6 speakers, no DVD and navigation functions.

First step, remove the original car's audio host.

Fox Audio host demolition requires specialized tools, which can be sold in car stereo shop.

The disassembly is carried out by professional and technical personnel, these technicians are specially trained. They put a large towel in the car (to prevent scratching the car parts). Within the blink of an eye, they unload the original car host.

This removed the original car audio and is a big hole.

Now, you need to put the lines in order.

Because OemCarGps E7012NAVI host is specially designed for Fox, so the connector of the connection is the same with the original.

Cable comes with the original car host. Connect it. Do not make any modifications. And each line has the function label.

The thicker lines with a square head in the figure above are a multi-disc players’ control harness.

Put the host into the center console carefully. Be careful not to bruise the four sides of the center console.

Adjust the gaps of four corners.

In fact, this host's appearance is completely based on the size of the vehicle center console design, After loading the host, it matches the holes of audio system in the center console. The gap is very small on-site observations. There is no difference between it and the original car audio.

Then appears warning, suggesting the notes in the driving process.

It takes time for this text to appear on the screen, "confirmation" button lets the driver read all the information in order to "confirm".

The main menu appears and the interface is very beautiful and clear. Here you can see the effect of the digital screen, there is a 800×480 resolution 6.5-inch display, the display is very clear, just like a computer display screen.
Look at the big picture:

The interface has two styles, one is orange and the other is blue.

The main menu has disc players, multi-disc box, radio, rear seat entertainment, navigation system, Ipod, settings and information and other functions. We can see that these features are all in-built.

We look at the DVD effects.

The host has built-in single-disc slot-loading DVD mechanism. We put a DVD disc into the player and it can read very soon.

In the state of DVD playback, touch the screen gently. The floating button immediately displays. You can operate while watching.

Set the screen color, contrast, brightness, tone and sound field at any time.
The DVD player is very clear and the sound quality is no different from the original car sound quality. (in this case it is the direct use of the original car speakers, no external power amplifier), set the volume to 48, music fills the entire compartment.

You can also set the sound effect.

Because of the installation of a multi-disc players, in the following we test a multi-player.

Press the "MENU" on the left side. The screen immediately switches to the main menu. Touch the "changer"and enter the multi-disc players operating screen:

OemCarGps host can automatically detect and display formats of the disc and enter the multi-disc player operating screen. We can immediately see the situation inside the disc changer.

It can be seen from the picture that inside the 6 Disc Changer two DVD discs and a CD disc is put, there are three places without dishes.

Tap the DVD disc and after a while, the pictures came out.

Here we have to explain that the reading speed is slower than that of the host built-in mechanism because of the process of changing discs, which is a normal phenomenon.

Next, try the reception effect.

Select "radio" in the main menu.

The channel selection buttons show it can totally store 12 FM and 6 AM stations. Touch the saved radio button. The operation is very convenient. At the same time, the radio can also adjust the tone and sound field effect.

This machine can support Ipod,
Ipod cables are put in the storage box on the co-pilot side. Connect iPod and select the "Ipod" from the main menu, then entered the operation screen of the Ipod.

The Ipod songs, even the song titles, artist names and album information can be displayed on the screen.

Ipod's sound quality is really good, basically reaching CD quality. No wonder that OemCarGps made built-in Ipod function.

This host can also be connected with external MP4.

If so, then we can see the rmvb format movies in the car.

Now it is necessary to try the navigation features of this machine.

Press "NAVI" on the right side of the host and get into the navigation screen.

This is a modified effect. OemCarGps products are car-specific modification, after the replacement, it is basically consistent with the original car interior style. But the process is very good and it reflects factory production and R & D capabilities.

OemCarGps host has various built-in functions and high-definition display. The user interface is beautiful and fast and is convenient to operate, but the sound quality can be comparable to the sound of the original car.
