Well, today I'm going to give it a go, even though it's 15 outside

yeah whatever on whats in the cord needless to say there are three wires in the cord mine just happens to be red black and yellow
stick the red in the first hole skip one hole then shove the black or yellow in then whatever you didn't stick in the last hole stick it in the next hole, the radio was on the whole time i was doing this no magic there just when the red wire goes in it will activate the RSE AUX button
The biggest trick will be to make the wires stay in the holes without taking apart the harness and putting them in there
i bought some crimp on pin connectors and will try and see if they will stay in the holes.
Like i said i will be running two wires one to my Xm and one to the center console for ipod when one is on the other is off so no need for a switch

Done.

Many thanks to Daloosecannon!

A couple of things to keep in mind:

1) Whatever you hook up to it has to be connected to the cars ground, you can't just run a wire and plug the ipod in, but you can run a wire to an ipod that has a car charger plugged into it, as long as the signal shield finds ground somewhere it'll let you switch to RSE.

2) I stripped the wires and soldered thicker wires to them, they fit snugly into the connector on the back and then I taped the audio cable to the rest of the wires coming out of the connector. It's a nice tight fit now and no risk of them coming out.

3) I've still got a slight ground loop as I'm powering my ipod controller (Harmon Kardon Drive/Play) off the center console DC jack, so I'm going to try isolating that, if that fails I'll take it apart again and power it directly off the radio.

I've made a load of photos of the installation and I should be able to get them up this weekend with a nice step by step guide.

Total time for installation including the modifications to the audio cable was around 45 minutes. It's a perfectly doable mod for even the most amateur of amateurs as long as you take it slow.

To clarify on Daloosecanons instructions.

The connector you need (I26) is on the top right (when looking at the FRONT of the radio) or the top left if you look at the back. It's the one ABOVE the biggest of the 4 connectors. You don't need to disconnect that plug unless you need a little more clearance in the wires.

When you look at the BACK of that connector you'll want the pins on the BOTTOM row and will start from the LEFT. The first one is RED (left), the second one is WHITE (RIGHT) and then you skip one and plug the ground/shield in.

You won't be able to switch to RSE unless the plug is hooked up to something grounded, so don't despair if you've done it and nothing happens when you press RSE.

In an ideal world we'd find a replacement connector (male/female) and could make a plug'n'play line in adapter for the car. The cost would be around $10 but I'm not sure how much interest there would be in that.

Got mine installed as well
Ran two seperate lines
The iPod line goes into the center console where the aux in for the my07 is and then a shorter line into the vent on the center of the dash for my xm.
as long as the xm is plugged in it has the proper ground
So just like Scott said above total time 45 minutes
maybe one day Subaru will just make a plug that will just plug into the existing harness for an aux jack.
enjoy
no pics from me the camera was dead and i didn't want to wait and charge it

Default installation

I installed the auxiliary input yesterday. Removing the radio is pretty straightforward. I took pictures of that if anyone wants to see them.

The only difficult part was inserting the wires into the back of the cable connector and making sure they are far enough in to contact the pins in the back of the radio and to make sure the wires stay in the connector. I taped the wires to the other wires in the connector and also to the back of the connector. If anyone has a better way to make the connection please let me know.

The only problem I seem to be having is that there is a hum when my XM radio is playing. Any suggestions?
Thanks

Make sure the ground that powers the XM radio is tapped off the same ground as the radio, if not then run a wire from the XM ground directly to the radio chassis.

If that doesn't help then try a ground loop isolator like this one:

Walmart actually sells a decent one from Schosche for around $12.

Looking over the schematics again, it seems that pin 14 should be the signal ground and pin 13 should just be wired to ground to enable the RSE input permanently. That might alleviate the hum problem, as you're trying to ground through the wrong wire if you use 13.

How would I wire in the ground loop isolator?

Default Aux input

I am coming into this thread a little late and would like to be clear on what this does.

By hooking up three wires to an existing radio harness plug I can run an aux jack to the console and plug my IPOD into this new jack - pressing the RSE/AUX button will switch to this input and play the IPOD through the car speakers? Surely it cannot be this simple?

If anyone needs it I have a pdf file with pics on removing the radio from a 06 Tribeca

I took the liberty of gathering the pics and instructions from scot3818 and Daloosecannon and created a powerpoint presentation. Thanks to those of you who took the time and risk to get this set up. Let me know if you would like me to send it to you.

Cool Pins I found that worked

I tried this and with success. I tried both 13 and 14, but got no response with 14. I finally used pin 13 (the one shown in the pictures previously posted) for the ground, but stretched the excess ground wire from pin 13 to touch the top of the radio chassis, and secured everything with elec tape. I am able to switch the RSE on and off at will without having my iPod powered externally. I also don't hear any ground loop interference so far.

I used a generic mini-1.8" audio cable which I had laying around, and I am getting incredible sound quality. I thought perhaps I should have used an RCA cable with a larger gauge, but it worked fine. I ran the cable under the armrest and into the dummy panel opening between the 12v jacks. That way I can hide everything in the armrest when I need to.

I even took 'er out and tried to find lots of bumpy roads to see if the connections stayed put...I've driven nearly 75 miles today and so far, so good. Thanks to all who are working on this! You are all my heros!!!

I'm glad i could be of help, so far so good for my install. It's been a couple of weeks and I've had no problems with my setup. I may take it back out and add a ground from the stereo and push it into the other hole on the bottom of the wire harness since i am getting a small ground hum when using my iPod. the xm sounds great when i get reception but thats a problem with my area and antennae(will fix tomorrow)
I'm glad to see an active tribeca community on the web. Nothing better than like minded people helping others with the same problems.

Thanks to everyone for their help!

I now have:

Aux in with iPod audio off a Harman Kardon Drive+Play interface

Parrot carkit with audio over the speakers

Video on the nav screen off my iPod video

Video on the nav screen off a backup camera

I'd say I'm done

How did you go about doing this little trick? If it's possible to do that then it's possible to add any av source to the nav screen.

You can activate one if the video inputs by letting it think the car is in reverse. I then put a video switcher between it. By grounding the reverse line on the monitor it switches to that input.

If you want a copy of the PowerPoint, send me an e-mail if you have the ability to from here, if not (like me) send me an e-mail to slackr13@hotmail.com and I'll be happy to forward it to you and any updates that come along or other great ideas that SCott comes up with.

So can you also bring power to the ipod from the same area? I don't find the location of our DC power connectors (in the center console) to be very convenient and I'd love to be able to have bring out power and the AUX line.

I found a place that I can buy the iPod connectors so I'm going to try building a cable that will bring power and line out to a cradle. I just need to know where I'm going to get +12VDC off the stereo.

Looks like Daloosecannon is the hero! I posted to this forum many months ago about a hardwired iPod hookup for my '06 Tribeca and eventually gave up in dispair when it looked like it wouldn't be possible to figure out the magic pinouts. After a long weekend road trip with crappy reception from my pathetic FM transmitter, I decided to check back and see if any progress had been made and sure enough, looks like there is a solution! I appreciate everyone's contributions to this effort, especially those of you who have documented the procedure. Good thing tomorrow is a holiday. I know how I will be spending the day.
Thanks!
