Default Pioneer NEX 8100 Installed 2015 STI

hey guys,

Just installed a NEX8100 in my STI. So far so good. Apple Carplay works great, going to try Android Auto tomorrow. Still researching speaker upgrades, if you guys have any input on upgrades it would be much appreciated. Sound Quaity is already much improved with the stock head unit out.

Do you have the USB routed through the built-in port in the center console? I can't seem to get Android Auto to work on my 4100NEX. I look forward to seeing if it works for you!

All you need is Metra's AX-TOYUSB adapter that looks like this:



This allows you to connect the car's USB port in the arm rest to the standard USB port in the back of the radio.

Yeah I know, that's what I have right now, but my 4100NEX isn't recognizing my phone, so I just wonder if its because of that adapter. In the manual for the head unit, it says you need a special interface cable to use android auto (CD-MU200). I don't know if that's bullcrap or not, but I guess we'll find out.

I'm buying the 4100nex in a couple weeks. I was looking at the higher end models but I figured this fits my needs and my budget haha.

If you have a control module. I have the Metra Axxess ASWC-1 and the only button that doesn't work is the Talk button. I'm not sure that can even be mapped.

The rest all mapped automatically the first time and are very responsive, there isn't any lag between button press and the action completing.

EDIT: Holding down the Talk button does work for me. I guess I never tried it. So all the buttons worked right of the bat with the ASWC-1.

What wire harness did you use? Do you get the SVX harness or go Metra/scosche?

I installed my AVIC-4100 this weekend, and with the ASWC-1 installed I just need to hold the talk button down for a few seconds and it works. I cannot seem to get it to work instantaneously, I reset my ASWC-1 and reprogrammed it for bluetooth several times. It all works, just the delay now when I push the button. The nice thing is that when I push the talk button it starts either Google voice or Samsung's "S Voice" (like Apple's Siri) whichever I set my phone up for.

Thanks for the reply! Just ordered my harness. 12 days until I can do my install....going to drive me nuts once my parts get here. I picked up Alpine SPR-60c components for the front and the SPR-60c coaxials for the back, a kicker Hideaway for under my passenger seat, and a Rockford Fosgate Prime 600 watt 4 channel amp to power my speakers. Should be a pretty rocking set up when all is said and done. I was going to put a 600 watt sub in my trunk but decided on the 150 watt RMS under-seat sub instead. I figure it will have about the same affect but I'll actually be able to hear it without having my car rattle apart.

Interesting. I haven't tried holding the button down. I'll have to give it a shot tonight.

Does the Maestro tie in with the stock mic on Subarus? Can you remap the voice command button to Google Now or the like? Looking at a 4100NEX as my first mod in a couple months...
