Hi Just changed my faulty sat/nav audio on a 2010 XS nav with a second hand unit and after about an hour it locks out with a grey screen that simply says 'SECURITY'

Does anyone have a workaround for this?

Audio security lock out

Ok, for those of you that want to know I now have the answer.

The new audio need to be paired with the car. This can only be done by a Subaru dealer and is the audio's anti theft device!

They know which vehicle the old audio came from and whether it had been reported stolen.

Mine came from a breaker, works great and a lot cheaper than a new one. The serial number was much later and came with newer sat nav discs!:Banane36:
