My 2009 FX50s doesn't have bluetooth. Whats the best way to get it ?

Can I purchase a used 2010-2014 radio with bluetooth and will it be a plug n play ? Do I only purchase the radio or also the screen too ? Or is there an alternative solution ?

From what I can see, the base sound systems in the FX all used a "telephone adapter unit" right through '14. So you'd have to upgrade to a navi to get bluetooth self-contained, and frankly that's impractical. You'd be into changing both the Main and Body Harnesses or doing a ridiculous amount of rewiring and new wiring. You'll be much better served to go aftermarket.

If you wanted to upgrade to a 2010-2017 Nav system with bluetooth and everything you could do that. You'd however need to adapt wiring (pinout, cut, splice, etc.) or purchase a harness adapter kit, such as this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/334124253577

Once you have the wiring in order you could then drop the parts right in.
If your main goal is to get bluetooth, there are a few alternatives in addition to what's mentioned above.

Let us know if you have any other questions.
