Item not available at Best Buy so was told to get on this website [ Camille  Jul 16, 2017 ]
A
Was recommended. [ Alton  Feb 02, 2017 ]
A
Could have purchased separately to extend the USB connection from the new radio to the USB port in the armrest between the two front seats - but this item came with the higher-end installation kit, so no need to buy a separate USB extension cable. [ Robert  Jan 20, 2017 ]
A
included [ Charles  Dec 26, 2016 ]
A
Included in install package but unnecessary for me (required in some Subaru's that have media USB port some where like inside the center console) [ Joshua  Dec 20, 2016 ]
A
I recently bought a Pioneer Stereo to replace the basic Subaru WRX stereo. I realized after the stereo arrived that a special adapter was required to reuse the existing USB port in the car. As a note - When providing recommendations for car specific accessories (wiring harness, etc), please include the USB converter in the recommended items. [ Douglas  Oct 20, 2016 ]
A
I purchased this so we could use the oem USB port in the center consul. [ JOSEPH  Jun 23, 2016 ]
A
To keep the factory USB in my 2011 Subaru STI for Android Auto with my new Pioneer head unit install [ Shiraz  Jun 18, 2016 ]
A
I really like the clean look of factory installed plugs and switches, so being able to maintain my factory USB input for a couple extra bucks was a no-brainer for me. [ tom  Apr 13, 2016 ]
A
I wanted to retain my current USB functionality with the receiver. [ K  Apr 10, 2016 ]
A
It is the only option I knew of... [ Michael  Feb 19, 2016 ]

Q
Will this allow the use of android auto?
[ Andrew  Jul 08, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Depends on the year of the Subaru I believe. I have a 2013 legacy and this cord was sent to me in error. It actually does nothing for me. Way easier to have head unit with a USB adapter and blue tooth. You can stream music and charge at the same time.
[ ADAM  Jul 09, 2017 ]
Q
Do they make something like this to retain the the factory AUX?
[ Zach  Jul 19, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.
