    2015 WRX stock stereo

    Has anyone else had problems playing an iPod video/classic (non touch-screen) via USB on the stock stereo of the 2015 WRX?

    When I plug it in, the iPod screen shows the "connected to Subaru" screen, and I can scroll through my options (artists, playlists, etc); but it doesn't play.

    The owner's manual mentions that a larger capacity device may take longer to load (my iPod is 160gb) and I see when it's loading, but then appears to be done, but nothing happens when I select a song. It simply shows the song with 0:00 on the song timer. Suggestions?

    BTW - if anyone has removed the stock radio, can you send me a picture of the connections on the back? I'm planning to upgrade to aftermarket as soon as I find the most compatible replacement, which would ideally retain audio control on the MFD.

    Have you confirmed that the head unit can play back the audio from a video file? Can it play a compatible audio only file at all?

    Not sure if I am allowed to post links to other forums? If not, sorry I will delete it...

    It won't play a single audio track; haven't even tried anything video related, just playlists.

    Will changing the stock head unit affect any of the other displays/functions?

    I think the only thing you lose is the song info from the top LCD. So far mine hasn't lost any other functions.

    It should work. Maybe double check with Crutchfield before you order it. I was told the impreza 08 and up will work.
