Alright, with a 2007 focus, peripheral electronics does make devices that could be used for your Zune. If you want all the options such as seeing artists, albumbs, etc. displayed, you we have to use an iPod. You could use a device by peripheral but it's just like any aux. jack. There will be no information displayed and your player will not charge. if you decided to go with an iPod instead, you would definately want to look into Peripheral like I am.

I purchased a PXAMG model for my 2007 with Audiophile set up. I used it for one day and it was FANTASTIC!

Then the next day I was driving and playing my ipod thru the stereo and I stopped at a 7-11. When I got back in and turned my car on, the readout on the head unit said "No Aux Audio" and the ipod would no longer play thru the head unit! I disconnected the ipod and re-connected it. Same result. I even pulled the head unit and rechecked all the wiring harness connections and re-installed the head unit. Still no luck.

For the last TWO months I've been fighting with the e-tailer I purchased the device from- they took that long to respond to my repeated requests for a RMA so I could return the device for a replacement! I would absolutely NOT RECOMMEND Endless Performance in any way. They even tried to blame Peripheral for the delay; but unknown to them I had been in regular contact with Peripheral tech support AND their Endless Performances sales rep who said Endless were the ones dropping the ball, as it were.

Basically, when it worked, it was great. The sound was clear, the steering wheel controls worked the ipod like Peripheral claimed and I was stoked!

Has anyone with a 2005 focus had any trouble with the PXDP2 or the PXAMG? Peripheral doesn't list the PXDP2 as Ford-compatible anymore, and the newer PXAMG is only listed to work on 2006 to 2008 focus

You may want to try the BLITZSAFE or USA SPEC interfaces, they supports newer ipods and the iphone.

but the PXAMG looks really awesome with HD radio, ipod and an extra aux to boot

But Crutchfield does ... odd, that.

The installer shop I was at yesterday, having my stock H/U reinstalled, said "basically all the adapter for stock h/u's are made by PIE, and even peripheral gets their's from PIE ... you've got a CAN bus radio, so I don't really know that there's any product that will work on your gen 3 iPod ... "
