Yes. It will work with the HK system. You just have to follow the installation instructions for the Maestro RR for a WRX with HK, instead of for the ones for a WRX w/o HK.

Thanks! Finally someone confirmed that itís possible! Iíve been watching/commenting and asking from YouTube videos but there weren't any good answers. I even emailed company that makes the harness for the WRX but they told me that itís not possible. The only options that they told me is to replace the factory amp, which is, I donít want to go that route...

idatalink has a downloadable (as pdf) installation guide. Use the vehicle specific harness iDL sells along with the Maestro RR, and follow the instructions they give.

Go to here: http://maestro.idatalink.com/product...product_id/102

Click on "install guide" and fill out the vehicle information for your car. It'll return a list with 2 guides on it: ADS-RR(SR)-SUB02A-DS-IG, and ADS-RR(SR)-SUB02B-DS-IG.

You want ADS-RR(SR)-SUB02B-DS-IG. The instructions you're looking for is "Subaru WRX with 7 inch screen and Harmon Kardon 2016-2018". It's page 157.

The harness you'll need from iDL is SU2 T-harness. Follow the steps on pages 159 and 160 and you'll be good.

No. The head unit has to have an idatalink serial port. Idatalink has a list of headunits that are compatible.

Not all big name HUs are supported.

One more question, what about the starlink, do I have to remove that or tuck it in behind the dash?

For the Maestro, it integrates starlink as well.
