    I have the H621SFG650 head unit installed in my '10 Forester as shown below. I want to see what reasonable options exist when it comes to modifying/replacing the head unit. I would prefer to try to modify the software on it as that option is free. I know it has a Bluetooth receiver in it as...

    I have a 2014 Forester with the OEM CF605UL head unit fitted which has recently bought the farm. I just need something to get me by and wondered if the CF625UM, whilst it would fit, is compatible with what would be exposed from the removal of the CF605UL unit? Thanks

    I have a 2014 Forester 2.5i Premium with the basic non-nav head unit (CF625UM). Till recently I've been happy to use Google maps on my Android phone for navigation, but I'm toying with replacing the head unit because lately I'm finding it hard to read the phone screen, and even harder to dismiss...

    Hi folks, I'm set to pick up a '17 Forester with the 7" touchscreen stereo soon, but I absolutely hate the stock Starlink system and plan to replace it as soon as I get the car. I've got a Sony XAV-AX100 I previously had in my Crosstrek and I'm hoping to get all the parts I need to retain full...

    Hey everyone, I could use some help with a sound system project in my new-to-me '16 Forester. Bear with me. I'm doing a lot of learning as I go here and hope this serves as a guide for other people attempting similar projects. It started with wanting to upgrade my sound system. Nothing crazy...

    I recently got the urge to upgrade the sound system in my 2015 FXT. I went with a Sony XAV-AX150 touch screen head unit, Memphis Audio Power Reference speakers in all the doors as well as a custom 10" subwoofer enclosure with an Alpine Type R powered by an Alpine mono block that I had lying...

    For my '09 (factory stereo, no satnav, no steering wheel controls), I'm wanting to upgrade to a touchscreen that handles Apple Carplay. I figure I'll add in a backup cam at the same time. Ideally, the unit would have a manual volume knob (I'm oldschool about wanting to change/mute it without...

    Howdy, apologies in advance if this isn't posted in the correct discussion section. I have a 2016 2.0 XT Premium with the non-navigational head unit.

    Hi guys, I have purchased a used 2019 impreza 8inch unit head unit to replace my 6.5 inch. I took it to a local Subaru dealer for the swap. Everything works fine but the car USB port(apple car play USB one) rapidly connects to my phone on and off didn't stay on connected. Yes, I have tried...

    I'm replacing the head unit on my 2017 Forester (no Harmon Kardon) with the Pioneer DMH-1500NEX. I purchased the Pioneer and associated gear from Crutchfield based on their selections for the 2017 Forester. I'm using the iDatalink Maestro RR Interface Module to retain steering wheel controls...

    Hello all, I have spent 9 hours today scouring the web for my Subaru Forester's Harmon Kardon 7" StarLink radio with Navigation firmware update files. From what I've gathered so far these files used to be on a server accessible to the public via the SubaruNet.com website, this website...

    Both Android auto and BT suck on the Forester. BT started acting up worse, so the dealer replaced the head unit. Not much better. In addition, due to the poor quality plastics and the mechanic, a number of surfaces near the radio were scratched up during the replacement. [email protected]! AA besides being...

    We purchased a Premium a couple of months back and wanted to upgrade the LCD screen from the 6.5" to 8". I was researching and noticed that the display unit (Part # 86201SJ630) with buttons appears to be all one piece. I wanted to know if we buy a 8" would all the wiring components be plug...
