2008 Ford Focus with Sync

I was thinking of getting a 2008 Focus SES that has sync with it. My problem is that the radio may be bad. I have search Crutchfield catalog and found a radio. My question is: If I put in a radio and not link up with sync does it affect the use of the message center on the dash. I know that Crutchfield sells a kit for Sync use, but I really don't need it. Thanks for help.

Are you using a replacement stock radio? Or are you going aftermarket?
Aftermarket uses a $200 adapter that might work with it. Or not.

Probably an aftermarket from Crutchfield. I really don't mind the radio part, but I am concerned if I will loose the message center above the radio.
