    I just bought a 2006 F-250 Lariat. I'm a fan of the stock radio and how simple it is, so I don't want to change it, but I'd like to have the option of connecting my phone for Spotify or my iPod.

    Is there any way to add these connections without changing the radio completely?

    Thanks

    No, they have to be built into the radio electronics. The stock radio is easy to change.

    FWIW ? (From my (age related;)) Audio/Video/PC hook-up challenges)

    [Almost]everything Audio/Video Wizardry theze dayz has an AUX INPUT port. You might halfta pull the unit, poke around or look around on the Faceplate to find/see it.. but it's there. You just need to find a patch cord to match what you want to hook up.
