I had an idea but wasnít totally sure. Looks like iíll be waiting for this since I dont feel so sure about tapping into the OBDII with the old one. Althought i may still have to to run an accessport

I thought the harness was specifically for the Maestro RR and 2016+ WRX

That is correct....its for the 10 pin and 6 pin setup with 28 pin harness... the camera harness will be included as well for the 5 pin connector or on the 28 pin. And they are adding TPMS and extended vehicle info like doors open and closed as well, and if you do the KENWOOD it will have the K40 data integration as well (have to buy the piece from k40)

K40? The EM detection and LED bright-light people?

If I buy a DMX905s, what do I need beyond this harness and a maestro?

you would need the antenna adapter, sat radio adapter (if you are adding a sat back in), and USB adapter (if your retaining it) and the actual kit to mount it.

Thanks. Now, to buy the car and the 905s... The JVC/Kenwoods are starting to show up online retail. I think Kenwood's product managers are listening to their market a lot better than (say) Harman's are. I'm actually kinda pleased to see the co-marketing with iDatalink and Kenwood.

The car should be late March/early April. If I have troubles, I'll ping! (Thanks again)

For those of you installing Pioneer's, this wire should save you some time:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078GBDRVX

You'll still need some other parts to get the backup camera etc working but this saved me some time when I installed my Pioneer AVIC-6200NEX.

CXVninja84, would this harness be used in combination with the harness that phd12v/iDatalink are working on?

I haven't bought my headunit yet, but I'm expecting to install Pioneer AVIC-8200NEX with Maestro RR and the new T-harness talked about in this thread, into my 2018 WRX Limited (non-Eyesight, non-Nav).

I already have Metra 70-1761 and Metra AX-CAM6V adapters laying around. Not sure if I'll need to use them - awaiting the new Maestro T-harness to figure this all out...

Installed a Chinese manufactured Android 7.1 unit this past weekend. The screen is 9" which is massive in comparison to the factory 2015 unit. It really modernizes and brings a big improvement to the overall appearance of the interior. The screen just seems massive and it's super nice to look at!

The unit itself performs well, is very responsive (I'd say more responsive than OEM 2016 trouchscreens) and looks really nice. The background/ colors/ apps/ fonts/ etc. all look really clean and crisp. It runs smooth and the apps all seem to work, although the GPS took us a little bit of time to figure out!

Negatives: The fitment isn't the best, but that could be because it's made for the 2016's and it appears there's a few millimeters in sizing difference between '15 and '16 models! The vents don't fit perfect (small gap) and the HVAC controls required a bit of work to get to fit nicely. GPS took a bit to setup, also.

Overall a nice unit, I'd give it a thumbs up.

It replaces the Metra 70-1761 and connects directly between the Pioneer unit and your car's wiring. It doesn't replace anything that connects to the 28-pin connector so you'll still need a different harness to connect to anything that uses that connector/

Great job on the video!

I paused your vid at just the right spot and it looks like their 20-pin harness has problem #s 1 and 3 that I detail in this post.

When you have a chance, check their harness to see exactly how/where they ran the KEY2 (SWC) wire (and whether you have problem #2 also). I'd be grateful if you could post some good, close-up still pictures of their 20-pin adapter showing the SWC and power antenna wires.

For the power antenna lead that's missing from pin #9 on their 20-pin connector -- the alternate harness set (with Toyota-style connectors) has a wire with the proper terminal on their antenna adapter that you can steal to fix this.

I'm in Alberta too, I actually follow you on insta


Anyways I'm thinking about putting the same unit in this summer.

Curious to see your thoughts on ownership longterm

I know there is a lot of info here, but it’s slightly overwhelming how much there is. Was hoping for a recommendation on a head unit. Only two requirements I have are car play, and improved audio over the stock headunit, 35+ watts per channel would be nice, I have the full kicker speaker upgrade and subwoofer. 2017 WRX.
I’ve had some interest in the android one subispeed sells, but it’s not from a big name manufacturer which has had me skeptical about it.
Also I was wondering about getting the kicker sub to work, would I leave it tapped into the front speakers as from the factory, or could I convert it to RCA plugs and use a sub output? It has its own amp just fyi
Thanks

Alpine ILX-207 or the Sony XAV-AX200SXM seem to be the most stable car play radios.

Kenwood and pioneer are always an option as well, but those other two to be what people are getting now.

If you sub amp is just tapped into the speaker leads, i would leave it be.... you could convert it to the rca but without knowing the level capability of the amplifier i would be merely guessing..... do you have the specs on the amplifier??? look at input sensitivity.... see if the rca output from your choice of radio has a like setting on the amp input

Thanks for those recommendations Iíll have to take a look.
Also if I can just leave it tapped into the speakers that would be ideal, I was thinking having a headunit that outputs higher wattage though might mess with the amp, thus needing to convert it to RCA, or however to output it from the new headunits sub out.
Not too sure on the specs of the sub amp, Iíll have to look into it when I get off work.
