I just picked a couple quick ones to try out.





Ah, another feature I left out earlier. You can see the HD/TAG button above.

1. HD Radio is streamed like digital cable. So, if you look @ my image in earlier posts you see 102.5 FM is selected. Well, about 3-5 seconds into the audio you hear a change over in quality. It's pretty dramatic. If you look up above where it says HD 1 2 3 etc. The 1 and 2 are highlighted. The technology allows this station to stream two digital 'channels' over 102.5FM. So, basically I can hit the HD button again and it will swap over to station #2.

2. The same button also has the tagging function. Let's say I hear a song I like I can press and hold HD/TAG and it will store the info of the song on my connected Apple device. I checked w/ both my ipod and iphone. Once you connect to iTunes all the data is there.


Hey many do you remember where you found the manual for the radio??

Default HU Upgrade?

Hey everyone after reading thread after thread on here I finally made an account.

Since I just joined the Subaru family this account will come in handy in the near future.

Both my wife and I got Subaruís for the new year. She got a 2016 Forester XT, and I got a 2011 WRX Limited.

Now, I hate my Navi HU that came with my car. I have to insert a disc for maps, then calibrate my location, sound is horrible, touch screen has an early 2000ís feel. Itís 2019 now and none of the 2011 functions are up to par for todayís uses.

Iím used to my Mylink setup in my 2016 Silverado, well Iím spoiled by it. So now I want something similar for my wrx.

I read you all using older Forester HUís for pnp into different year Imprezas, but issues soon ensue after install.

Does anyone have an awesome HU installed in there 2011 Impreza that retains all swcís, has Apple carplay, or that new Subaru star link getup?

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

I had the cp635u1. the issue that got me was the constant static on phone calls I very bluetooth. This is a common undiagnosed issue (some think noise reduction mic issue, some think antenna shielding, etc). That and the general lack of custom eq.

If youre good getting away from oem.look, I moved to a pioneer mvh-2300nex..it's great. Really anything in their nex series is clean, comprehensive, well supported (customer service and the internet) and not killer expensive. If you want a pnp oe, You're limited on sound quality, tech etc. Subaru is not a leader in interior tech. Any aftetmrket will be swc compatible and back up camera friendly.

My apologies if this has already been covered.....

I have a 2014 Impreza hatchback and want to replace my base HU with one that has the screen so I can hook up a backup camera. From what I've read it seems like I could use either the CM631UD or CP635U1. Is one better than the other? Would it make more sense to go with the Impreza model which is the CM631UD, or does it matter?

Backup camera: I've read in some of the previous posts that I would need to order a special harness to use a backup camera on these units. If I was to buy an OEM camera from a dealer would it already come with the wiring and be plug and play to the HU?

Satellite radio: I may have just answered my question about which unit to get by looking at a few pics. It seems the CM631UD doesn't have a SAT button. I'm currently using a Stratus 7 for Sirius XM plugged into my cigarette lighter and AUX. If I switched to an OEM HU with the SAT button am I correct in thinking I'd just need to add the Sirius tuner and could then run it from the HU?

You can use either but CP635U1 supports satellite radio. I just ordered the wiring harness from svxdc and it worked like a charm for the backup camera.

P.S. I have the CP635U1 headunit available if someone is looking for it.

I had the cp635u1 and found that the xm branded satellite tuner was terrible. Went with a Sirius and it worked great. I can dig back for a model number if helpful . Let me know

Default Subaru says NO 86201sc630 will NOT work in Ď11wrx

Hello people from 11 years ago. Iíve stumbled across this thread stating this feller swapped this hu in from and Ď11 forester to an Ď11 WRX which is what Iím looking at doing now. When I look up this exact part number on Subaru it says it does NOT fit Ď11 WRX. Iím wondering why they are saying this when this article clearly shows itís plug and play over to the WRX. Nervous about spending $200+ until I understand this discrepancy.

It worked perfectly on my '12 WRX. Don't think there are any differences between the two model years in terms of HU but I could be wrong.

Were you able to find someone or somewhere that still makes the harnesses for the backup camera and possibly a sub Input. If so what camera did you decide to go with, Iím looking at this one thatís supposed to be oem fit for the license plate light

Yeah I got the harness from svxdc. I still have it along with the Head unit for sale.

Got this camera https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00ADHZWIK/ to go with the HU and harness.

Any chance you still have it for sale and would entertain shipping it to Canada?

You mean the HU and harness for sale? Yes, I have those. Shipping isn't going to be a problem.
