    I recently purchased a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Premium. I haven't have the car long but from the start I have had issues with the Android Auto connection. I use a Samsung Galaxy S8 and had initially used the charging cable they came with. After that I purchased a "cheap" charging and data cable...

    I recently had the stock speakers of my 2016 Crosstrek replaced with Polk Audio DB 652 in the front/back doors, an Alpine Powerpack 180W 4 channel amp and Memphis Audio Dash Speakers. Needless to say after all upgrades, the sound quality is underwhelming. Granted it is a bit louder but not great...

    Hi all, Newbie here. What a great forum! I've read lots of posts about stereo upgrades but can't seem to figure out what's best for my needs. I have a 2016 Crosstrek 2.0i Premium w/a 6.2 in. screen (no navigation); Starlink 7.0 multimedia plus audio system w/SiriusXM. Also Eyesight (in Option...

    I have a 2018 crosstrek and my carplay and bluetooth handsfree calling has not been working for weeks. I have an iphone 8 and use the apple brand lightning cable. I have tried restarting my phone, using a different cable, restarting the stereo system. I am VERY disappointed that my brand new car...

    Hello, I'm in the process of installing an aftermarket head unit (JVC KW-V240BT) and after quite a bit of time and some hours spent on the phone with crutchfield support I finally have sound coming out of all my speakers. Unfortunately the front speakers are emitting a hissing sound. One of...

    I'm hoping against hope someone can help me complete my installation of the Subispeed android GCS HU. I have been trying to make the backup camera work for almost 3 months now, trying everything, but I still cannot get video when switching to reverse. I did rule out a number of things: The HU...

    So long story short: I sold my 1957 Seeburg jukebox, and then out of sheer coincidence my wife won almost $500 at the casino. So I'm replacing the POS stock head unit with a new one. I've narrowed it down to either a Pioneer or a JVC; specifically the Pioneer AVH-4201NEX or the JVC KW-V830BT...

    Anyone ever have a problem with Telematics in a 2016 Limited Crosstrek. Dealer looked at it once when I first got the alert in the app that says "Attention Required" and said he went though a full diagnostic and found nothing wrong. Then sent me home and told me to call the corp headquarters...

    Has anyone noticed subtle fluctuations in volume when connected to Bluetooth? I'm driving a 2017 Premium, connected to my s6 which does not have similar issues w/ other Bluetooth devices (headphones, receivers @ home) I notice a slight drop in volume and it happens semi-frequently Most...

    Does anyone know why I cannot "Tag" some songs on the radio? The "Tag" button is not illuminated on about half of the songs that come up on when I'm listening to Sirius. Overall the Sirius radio features are not good on this car. You cannot mark favorite songs, you can only "cache" five total...

    I just bought a new xv about 3 weeks ago. I love the car but the factory radio is pretty basic and just not what I expected for a 2014. The dealer had this audio shop install a Pioneer 2600BT radio, however they could not get the steering wheel controls to work properly. The radio also did not...

    Hi all, I noticed a topic about someone that added an amp to the stock stereo in the Premium model. Well I just did this as well. But I have a question. I installed the Alpine PDX-V9 amp, which is incredibly small in size. So I put it under my drivers side front seat along with 2 crossovers. I...

    Looks like there is a simple answer on how to fix the terrible sound quality for the base and upgraded head units, but does anyone have any details on how to fix the sound quality on the nav head unit? The highs are tinnie and unclear, bass is so so, the end of every spoken word on the radio...
