Default 2015 WRX OEM HU vs Pioneer AVH-4000NEX

...I know I know, this is not an ideal setup to confirm sound quality but regardless it's obvious the Pioneer is alot better than the Subaru OEM HU.


FYI, Metra Axxess just released an app to reassign the steering wheel controls. I'm upset they only did it for Driod but hopefully they will release an iPhone app soon.

As for steering wheel controllers, this is one of the best if not the best option:

Metra Axxess ASWC-1
http://axxessinterfaces.com/index.ph...roducts_id=197

It auto programmed the volume, next song/station, mode select (switching between radio, Bluetooth, etc), and the last button lowers the volume instantly but it's not exactly mute. I ran out of time with my install so I will revisit the controls to customize it. I want a "Siri" button since like most I'm waiting on Car Play and would like to do as much as possible through the steering wheel controls.

The question, does the unit have "push to talk"? It states it has Siri eyes free but how exactly do I access that feature or tap into it?

I just ran out of time that day but I will be looking into this soon.

The Pioneer system has a billion features and settings....so much so that it can be overwhelming but I prefer that over limited customization. I have not had time to tweak everything how I want yet but I will report back when I do.

Just looked up the manual and all you do is push this and should access siri eyes free. Sadly I dont think there will be a way to program that to aswc cause it is an on screen button

Thanks for that, I've been wondering the same, but I've thus far been too lazy to RTFM.

Yeah Ive seen that when I press the home button on my iPhone. Thanks, I hope this changes because it would be a HUGE help once Car Play comes out.

Updated the first post with some good news about the Metra Axxess controller.

Sorry for the link, I can't seem to consistently share youtube links correctly on this forum.
