2012+ OEM Fujitsu Ten Navigation HU to Non-Nav WRX transplant!
Thanks for the amazing SVXdc (David) this project is now officially possible without ripping off your whole car harness. I'll be retrofitting this into a 2013 WRX Hatchback.
For the USB: SVXdc and I are still researching this. The socket on the back of the Fujitsu Ten unit is a socket typically used by Toyota. SVXdc mentioned that Subaru or Toyota might have a short breakout harness/cable with the toyota style plug I can buy to crimp/solder to his hirose socket. He also mentioned a electronic parts website that might carry those plug. I'm still waiting on his reply about this. I'm sure he'll be able to find a plug to make this work as he found the impossible 28-pin connector.
Your OEM bluetooth mic won't work properly with this head-unit. Reason is because the mic from non-nav cars has an amplified circuit that causes gain problem with the Fujitsu Ten unit. You need to buy one from a car with the same HU or buy the complete dome assembly from Subaru/crashed car with the FT nav. The OME bluetooth mic worked fine.
Update: I just finished installing the FT HU into my car. It started up just fine. I am still missing the GPS antenna, and the Toyota/Lexus radio adapter. But bluetooth actually worked flawlessly. The oem mic even works perfectly.I'll have to check my connection on this when I take the HU out for the antenna.
There is a problem with my aux input however. It doesn't have any output on the right speakers (actually very low output even at max volume). It was the aux cable I used. Replaced with a different aux cable and it worked fine.
Still no USB function yet. I'm still hoping SVXDc can find an adapter to make this possible. Otherwise I'll have to open the HU and solder wires onto the PCB to the Hirose connector.
There is a BIG improvement in term of sound quality. Much better bass and louder volume without distortion. And all this is just through Bluetooth streaming. I can't wait to see how USB/Aux, HD radio, and CD perform.
Please don't PM me asking how-to. Post all your question here.
Update: SVXDc has found the part# for the USB harness you can get from Toyota or Subaru to splice into the Hirose USB Socket.
