About the Metra AX-SUBUSB USB Port Adapter

Bob Bihlmayer


Metra's AX-SUBUSB cable allows you to keep the USB port in your Subaru when you install a new car stereo. One end of the cable connects to the 4-pin plug just behind the USB port on your console, while the other end plugs into the USB port on the back of your new car stereo. You must install a car stereo with a rear USB port. Warranty: 60 days.

Product Research


USB Adapter Harness: The Axxess Integrate AX-SUBUSB USB adapter harness is used when you want to retain the factory USB port in select Subaru vehicles, when replacing the factory radio with an aftermarket stereo that features a rear USB input.

Note: As long as your new car stereo has a high-amperage charging port (1.5A or greater), this USB adapter harness should support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto operation. However, the number of variables involved means we can't guarantee compatibility.

Vehicle Compatibility: The AX-SUBUSB USB adapter harness can be used in the following Subaru vehicles with factory USB port (as of 7/30/15).

Make Model  Year
Subaru Forester 2011-2012
Impreza 2011-2012
Legacy 2012
Outback Sport 2011
Outback 2012

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.

Do they make something like this to retain the the factory AUX?

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.
