New Compatibility: Satellite Radio Adapter Now Available For All 2017 Fords With Sync3 Infotainment System

May 15, 2017 – VAIS Technology has updated a satellite radio adapter specifically designed for 2014-2017 Fords, including those with the Sync3 Infotainment System. This adapter now allows owners of Ford vehicles with the Sync3 Infotainment System to add SiriusXM® satellite radio to their existing factory stereo, without compromising any functionality.

“Since 2003, VAIS Technology has been developing satellite radio adapters for vehicles that aren’t equipped from the factory with SiriusXM® tuners,” Dennis Hopper, Vice President of Sales, says. “While satellite radio is more popular than ever, many vehicles don’t offer any way to listen to it. Our company develops simple, easy to install adapters that add satellite radio but preserve factory functionality.”

The updated GSR-FD01 adapter now includes coverage for 2014-2017 Fords, even models with the Sync3 Infotainment System.

This adapter connects directly to the original Ford factory stereo and allows the vehicle owner to listen to satellite radio through the existing factory stereo system. The VAIS adapter kit also allows for full control of satellite radio functions – changing stations, setting presets, etc. – with the standard factory radio controls.

“We design our satellite radio adapters to operate just like the factory satellite radio systems,” Hopper explains. “While it takes more work on our part, our customers really appreciate the fact that they can control their satellite radio just like they would regular FM radio – the same knobs and buttons, the same steering wheel controls, etc. That’s what really separates VAIS products from the rest of the industry.”

Installing the GSR-FD01 is relatively straightforward, only it does require some expertise. Many consumers opt to have a professional audio installer or their local dealership install a VAIS Technology satellite radio adapter kit. Like all VAIS Technology products, the GSR-FD01 will not affect the Ford’s factory warranty.
