    I have a 2013 explorer with the 4" sync screen (not sure what the proper name is for this) and I'd like to change it to the 8" sony screen (I think they call that myford touch?). What components do I need to purchase and what are the recommended aftermarket vendors?

    thanks

    I believe there are a few members who have added something similar to their Explorers but I haven' t found the posts. Also, I doubt very much that you will be able to get all the functionality of the OEM system. There have been several posts stating that 'Navigation' cannot be added after the vehicle leaves the factory. The MyFord Touch system uses an Accessory Protocol Interface Module (APIM) and I'm not sure that your Explorer would have that. The APIM is the 'brains' of the MFT system. I'm sure other members may have a better understanding of what you wish to accomplish. Good luck.
