I had to call them but still haven't gotten around to yanking the stock radio. There is a modification that you have to make to the harness and they will give you a custom file to flash the RR2 with.

I was going to rip the harness apart tomorrow to look at all the actual connections, and trace them out. I figured something on the harness is not wired correctly. Maybe I will wait until I can call them on Monday then. Thanks.

so after some time on the phone today with idatalink trying to trouble shoot my problem, they came to the conclusion that the rr2 unit was bad....Crutchfield is sending me a new one so hopefully I'll get back at it later this week...

Update: 8/7/20
Received new RR2 from Crutchfield today and proceeded to install, this time with the CAN lines military spliced with solder(they said t-tap was bad).....the same symptoms, radio will not automatically shut off when the car is shut off. Car info, gauges, TPMS etc do not work. When I look at the CAN STATUS page it shows an error: stufferr and count:9... I have lost faith in the idatalink tech support and believe they are lying about this unit and SU2 harness being compatible with the 2020 STI, literally everything is Plug n Play except the two CAN lines..

According to the below link the SU2 harness is now compatible with 2018-2020 cars...I don't believe it.

Idatalink states that the mestro rr/rr2 does work with 2020 STi's BUT only if you have the the non-amplified/harman kardon system.

Also I did read somewhere on there site that Idatalink is making a new wire harness SU3. The new SU3 (if they are making it) might work better when it comes out.

I would try and call them again and see what they say.

Further inspection shows that there are multiple wires on the SU2 harness that do not connect to anything on the vehicle radio harness.
This blue with red stripe wire leads to a blank spot on the vehicle radio harness

Here pins 7 thru 12, green with red stripe to yellow wires lead to all blanks spots on the vehicle harness..

The RR2 is not getting a signal for my ebrake either, I can tell through the apps in the radio. Maybe this is because the SU2 harness is incorrectly pinned for my vehicle??

I am swapping out my DNX996xr for a Dnx997xr In order to senD in to kenwood for service so I can take pictures possibly Thursday when I do the swap.

If I remember correctly I do ground both the e-brake wires from the SU2 and kenwood harnesses to avoid all nanny notifications and video playback any time.

I am harman kardon, but all wiring should be the same other than speaker wire connections really.

I was so pissed today I just reverted back to my original setup with metra harness with maestro SW and axxis 6v step down for the backup camera. Everything works fine with this setup, just wont have vehicle info or gauges but at least I won't be racking my brains out with the RR2. I'm returning the SU2 and RR2 today.

I would just ground the wire going to the Kenwood radio for the e-brake, otherwise you will have the e-brake light on in your dash if you ground the e-brake wire from the vehicle itself.
