I did my MY19 Map (built august 2018) radio with ACP & AA with HK amp swap over this long weekend and have pretty much managed to do it but there are some issues.

I purchased the USB 2.1A module and cable from the original wreck and found that mine worked straight up but the USB port I THOUGHT the connecting cable went in (there are three USB ports in the back of the HU) and I swapped it to match those little lugs that differentiate each port. I now have it in the third one to the right looking at the rear of the HU, This may be assigned AUX. I had connectivity with a generic iPhone cable once I realised the little lugs vary on each of the three USB rear inputs. Id connect some extra 2.1A USB's to the inside of the Lift up arm rest too but not sure if this USB connecting cable is available in a longer length?

Steering wheel control are a disappointment as they re mapped with all different positions mostly seek left right dominate volume, and now volume is the Index and Back button to the right of the button array on my model XV. Protivakid let me know if you ever decide to re write the code for that Smart box you mentioned. Or I decide on a complete WRX/STI steering wheel that matches the head unit MY.

The same type of Steering wheel for the MY19 WRX STI
