Hi folks. The double-din sized radio head unit in the Subies provide a lot of options, and I was really looking for a decent touchscreen head unit, preferably 7" motorized LCD screen for a nice, clean, all-in-one, factory look. After a lot of research, and tight economy these days, I settled on a gamble, a cheaper unit by XOVision. You can take this review for what it's worth, I just wanted to share my experience. If you have any other questions, or want to see some photos, please let me know. I have scanned the manual that came with the unit, but it's about an 8mb PDF, and not sure how I would get it to you if you want it. Strangely, they do explain clearly in the manual how to disable the parking brake feature that locks you out of some video features when the PB is not engaged, please use that with wisdom and caution.
I do need to modify the WRX factory radio faceplate around the head unit, so if anyone has any experience with how to cut this opening to be ever so slightly larger (vertically), please let me know how this could be achieved to look clean when complete. In addition, if anyone has changed out the radio faceplate and has an extra, I would be willing to give you a few bucks for that so that I could restore the car to factory if I need to sell it.
