Do not PM him. You will never hear back. I assume since you have talked to him previously that you are using email.

I have not dealt with him in a few months but he was always very responsive. Maybe he is away or sick (I hope not).

We have swapped several emails over the past few weeks on my HU upgrade. In fact I got one just this morning.
I know is slammed with emails and it usually takes a dayor so for him to reply

I've tried getting in touch with him as well, to no avail. Has anyone gotten any response from him lately? Hopefully he's just really busy.

I emailed him a week or so ago and haven't heard from him. I think he is just slammed with questions/orders. Hopefully he's ok and it's just that he's backed up with orders.

Discussion/questions/updates about "Stock head unit information..." FAQ thread - Page 35 - NASIOC

Back in Feb his queue of questions/orders was at 70. So, could only imagine how many more requests he's got since.

Also, look at the top of his inquiries/orders page:

I got a reply from David. He is just slammed with orders and questions and answering them in the order he received them.

Still no reply?? I had ordered many harness parts from David, always payed ASAP via PayPal, always answered his questions/reply requires...

I have to say...I`m a bit confused??? Why he did not reply to my last order or any of my e-mails??

I only need that one 8-pin cable/connectors! (the first order sent in 19.01.2014 to 96svx.dc(at)gmail.com )

I ordered a harness from him last week and got it in a few days. It probably helped that I followed his ordering instructions exactly, and knew exactly what I needed.

Be patient if you have a question that requires him to think about the intricacies of your setup...

And as a person in the IT industry, I can say with certainty that the more repeat emails you send only tend to frustrate and delay, rather than hasten, your order.

Well, well...

Here is the whole story.

David. 01.05.2014
Hi Tomi,
OK, I can send you the rest of the transplant harness (everything in that picture except the 24-pin plug and wires you already have).

I recommend that you go ahead and extract the subwoofer RCA cable and blue/white wire before you proceed with your order. See these instructions:

ae64.com - Insert or Remove Wires from Harness Shell

Let me know if you have any problems doing that.

Please confirm: Does your wife's Forester have the odd-shaped OEM under-seat subwoofer?

Would you be interested in adding a rear camera? I can send you an 8-pin plug for $1 that you can add the subwoofer RCA jack into, then you can use that with a rear view camera.

Cheers,David

Tomi 01.07.2014
Hi David!

I just pay all via PayPal. and yes the car have the OEM Subwoofer under the driver seat and cable extract is OK!!

Tomi 01.19.2014
Hi David!

Radio works fine, subwoofer works fine, no security issue... I`m so happy
Only thing where I need confirm is that 8-pin/24-pin Aux/Camera pin diagram table... The Subwoofer works fine, but I`m not sure of the AUX/Camera pin order.
One question, can I have rear view camera to Kenwood?? And if so, do you have any suggestion for me??

- Tomi

Tomi 01.27.2014
Hi David!

Did you get my mail??

- Tomi

Tomi 02.22.2014
Hi David!

I still need that rear camera 8-pin connector to Kenwood ( Link below... )

I did hear from him and got my harness ordered. It seems like he has been swamped and backuped with emails. I sent him an email that you have been trying to get a hold of him. I hope that helps.

I never received any reply, David never answer any of my mails so I give up...

Hopefully I got connector from wrecked Forester and make the connector/harness all by myself.

I connect camera to pin 1 and 5 and took detect singnal from pin 6



Looks like I have PAL Camera because picture is unstable. I can test rear Camera in "Kenwood" test mode ( Rear camera check ) so picture pop up every time while shifting reverse.

but when I using Kenwood in normaly mode I cant get rear camera view in reverse?? it works ok in test mode??

( Test mode = tabing screen left, right, left, right few times and Kenwood goes to test mode )

I cant find any "Rear camera thing" from any menu??

Kenwood model FXDD07EF2
