Axxess AX-SUB28SWC-6V

The AX-SUB28SWC-6V harness from Axxess allows you to retain the backup cam and aux input in select 2015-up Subaru vehicles. It also allows you to connect the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control interface (sold separately) in your Subaru vehicles without having to splice into your factory wiring. It's compatible with the 28-pin Subaru wiring connector that detaches from the factory radio.

This harness allows you to retain your Subaru's backup camera if you are installing a new car stereo with a rear-camera input. You'll also be able to use the handy auxiliary input in your Subaru (if equipped) if your new receiver has a rear RCA auxiliary input. The kit includes Axxess' AX-CAM6V converter that accommodates the Subaru backup camera's 6-volt power supply. The harness also provides the outputs you need if you're installing a NAV receiver. 

To use this harness, you'll need the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel control interface (sold separately) and a compatible aftermarket radio. You'll also need a vehicle-specific wiring harness to install your aftermarket stereo. We'll show you the correct harness when you enter your vehicle information into our online vehicle selector. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Additional kit and wiring harness will also be needed to complete installation.

A
Even though Crutchfield website claims this doesn't fit 2017 Subaru WRX, it does. More so, it is required in order to keep steering wheel controls and rear view camera when installing new head unit. It is used in conjunction with the ASWC-1. [ Matthew  Dec 08, 2017 ]
A
The connector that plugs into the car is poorly made. Crutchfield had to send me a second one. The first one the pins bents and pulled out. The second one after many attempts of not being able to get it in. I had to send it to a shop. Once the install was done they stated the connector took the most time out of all the radio install. He said 30 mins to get the pins to line up. [ jason  Jul 21, 2017 ]

I used this with an Outback. Not positive will work with WRX. I would suggest you contact a local shop and ask if they have installed head unit in a WRX, and which adapter they used. Of course Crutchfield techs should have an answer!
