    My Multi Display unit (MFD) stop working after I got this error message, see photo below. I took it to the dealership with no luck, any help on troubleshooting is well appreciated it.

    Hey y'all! This is my first post here, but I want to document my process of installing the BE9ACP floating head unit in my '17. I've found a few threads about switching out the radio, but many of them were not super detailed and lacked answers to some questions I have had. I hope this thread can...

    Hey all, I wanted to share something I just did for relatively cheap. I found a reddit post detailing changing out the 6.5" head unit from a 2019 premium to an 8" head unit from a limited without navigation. I happen to have a 2019 premium and wanted to make it happen too. At one point I found...

    Hi there. New tothis forum and have already found tons of useful posts! I have a 2019 Crosstrek 6MT Base Trim, and I have been upgrading it gradually by myself.

    Hello all! I am new to this forum and am looking for some guidance on where I should go with an audio upgrade. I really enjoy listening to music in my car so I'm looking for something decent, that has nice mid bass and within a reasonable budget. I don't listen to music very loud so that is not...

    anyone get random beeps out of their HU? Even when I’m not using gps it beeps….sometimes every 20 seconds…..or every minute or two or once every ten min. I have no idea what it’s trying to tell me….I’m fairly sure it’s gps related…… I bought my MY15 in 2020 and the gps has never been...
  7. For Sale / Freebies
    I have for sale an 8" 2018 unit for sale. I had bought it originally from a pick-n-pull junkyard on eBay and the unit worked completely fine. Then, things started to get wonky on me (kept getting a "Service Cannot Be Found" message and other messages) and Subaru had told me that it's because...

    I've read LOTS of discussions here on the sub-par sound system in the Subaru Crosstrek. Additionally, my friend just bought a 2019 Subaru Forester premium trim and that sound system is equally underwhelming. I still have the factory head unit. So far I've upgraded the front door/dash factory...

    I have 2014. From my research my first option is I can get a 7" or 8" unit as a replacement to go in the double din hole. Option 2 is get a 9" that comes with the fascia attached. e.g Joying 9 inch Car Radio for Subaru Forester Impreza WRX STi 2013-2018 Google Map Option 3 is go bigger 10" or...

    Just got a 2014 Crosstrek a couple of weeks ago to replace my 2014 Legacy Premium that was totaled in an accident. The factory sound system in the Crosstrek is pretty bad so I’m in the process of upgrading it now. I’m just looking to achieve the same level of sound quality that my 2014 Legacy’s...

    Hey folks. Have had my 2020 Premium for about a month now and already looking to make some upgrades. Coming from a Jeep Cherokee, I liked the 8.4" screen it had, however now I have the smaller of the infotainment screens (6" I believe). Found online one of the larger screens, but before...

    This will be a tutorial for those looking to retrofit the CarPlay / Android Auto radios that come with the 2019+ WRX. Final Pic Where do I begin. In 2013 when I bought my Crosstrek I was very excited to get my first car with built-in navigation. Over the years though, I noticed myself using...

    Hi guys, I have a 2018 crosstrek and I just wonder where can I download the new firmware file of the head unit and upgrade the head unit to the latest version using USB disk.

    I've got a 2019 Crosstrek Premium with the base+ infotainment system. I think it's a gen 3.1? Well I don't think the sound the quality is at all good, so I had Focal ISU 690 component speakers installed in the front plus a Kicker Key180.4 amp. That helped a bit but I still think the sound...

    Hello I changed the battery of my XV of 2012, for a 60Ah and 680ACC, and since then on some occasions the unit takes to turn on, about 10-15 seconds (before it was instantaneous, just start) I have disconnected the battery again, I have connected it ... and it remains the same. I tried to find...

    Hello all, I just purchased my new M19 model 2.0i-S this month and have found an annoying feature in the 8" Infotainment system. While playing a CD, the unit puts a 1.5s delay/pause between each track. This is particularly annoying for CDs where the music flows from one track to the next. Has...

    Need help on pulling out HU. I have the 6"LCD. I see several members here have replaced theirs. I just need to pull mine out to add an amplifier. I replaced the door speakers but for now I am keeping the HU. I am not new to doing aftermarket HU's and did not think this one would be a problem. I...

    Hello All! I wanted to see if anyone with a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek (Limited or not) has had similar issues with their Radio Reception.

    I just bought a 2018 Crosstrek Limited 2 weeks ago. I got in my car this morning and my music started playing through BT like it usually does. 10 seconds into the song the entire head unit + dash froze, followed by a LOUD continuous beep that did not stop until I hard shut down the radio. The...
