Default Aftermarker GPS AUX input connection lost?

All the aftermarket GPS HUs state that the factory AUX input connection will be lost. Does this mean my WRX USB and AUX input will not work if I install a new unit. Is there a way around this?

I searched around but couldn't find this, I'm sure it's been addressed before.
Thanks

yes, thats exactly what it means.

what i do in a customers case when they like the factory location of the aux/usb on their vehicles is i will retrofit the aftermarket head units cables to the spot their factory inputs are. isn't that difficult, just takes a little more time than simply dropping these lines into the gloveboxes.

something like this works great for USB, and I have used it before, would reccomend.

A trick I like doing is cutting a USB extension and soldering to the back of the factory connector.. just did 2 today for the suby dealer by my shop...

I am assuming the same can be done with the AUX?

Yes... if you pull the auxiliary plate out you can open it up and pull out the circuit board... from there you can solder directly to it. I usually but the cord I'm going to use and then plug it into the Jack on the board then use my dmm to check for continuity with the pins on the board

SVXDC makes the aux input harness: http://ae64.com/


Also, I made my own USB connector:

I've used David's USB connector kit, and it works perfectly when I swapped to my single din.
