I am pretty curious about the sound system and nav in the new SJ 2014 Forester as I'm wishing/hoping/praying I can get one soon.
I haven't been able to find a whole lot of information, so I thought I might start a thread where it could be gathered.
Here is the technical information as advertised on the SOA site:
Voice-activated GPS navigation system with Harman Kardon speakers
Voice-activated GPS navigation system with 8-speaker single-CD HD Radio®
440-watt premium audio system featuring Harman Kardon speakers with AhaTM ,
USB port/iPod® control, Bluetooth® audio streaming and hands-free phone connectivity, and 3.5-mm auxiliary jack
Standard on: 2.5i Touring, 2.0XT Touring
There is a section of the online Owner's Manual about it:

There are only a few pictures of it so far:
It appears to be nearly identical to what is in the 2013 Crosstrek:
I noticed that the Forester unit is labeled FF615US in the upper left corner. The Crosstrek's system is labeled FM612US or FM201KS.
The 2013 Outback head unit looks quite different from these.
From researching posts on the XV and other forums, it looks like the models starting with F correspond to a Fujitsu Ten HU, while those starting with C are Clarion.
Interestingly, the head unit pictured does not seem to correspond to any of the Type A, B, C, D or E listed in the Primary US Owners Manual -Audio section
Anyone have further info or find the above to be inaccurate? Please post!
