Buy a nice afterharket head unit. It will be cheaper, do everything sync does including voice control, play dvds (and divx in some cases) and prevent headaches.
BTW. Someone should make a sticky on this topic.
Would an aftermarket head unit still be able to make use of the media buttons on the steer wheel? Volume, next track, media, etc.
Also, thank you autoxr1 - that looks interesting. It's a bit pricier than I was hoping, but it's definitely an option if I can't find another way.
Yes, it's pricy. In my wife's Taurus X, which did not come with SYNC, we simply got a Garmin GPS for $150 that has Bluetooth and speakers built in. It gives her SYNC-like functionality for her phone with hands-free dialing and voice command of her phone book for little more than the cost of a GPS alone. Not a bad alternative.
