Can I use Maestro with Seicane vertical screen radio for Outback 2012

Post by vassko »

Hi everyone, I have a tall question here.
I have been looking to replace my Subaru Outback 2012 radio w/ Harman Kardon with this vertical Seicane unit.

The manufacturer says that if I have an original amplifier, this unit will have no audio. I am assuming that this is due to some wiring.
Has anyone done any similar installations or fix a similar problem? I am also ready to buy one and test it, but it would be great if I can get some support beforehand.

Cheers.

Unfortunately we don't have an interface to support that brand of radio with the RR, which would provide audio wiring connections. I'm not 100% sure what would have to be done with their unit to make it work with the amplified car, you'd want to reach out to Seicane there.

The RR module would work, if using a compatible radio (https://maestro.idatalink.com/compatible-radios) allowing your factory amplifier to play and integrate your factory backup cam (if equipped and displayed on the OEM radio). We also allow OBD2 data to be displayed on the radio (check engine, some gauges, tire pressure, etc). Otherwise all we'd have to offer is the SW which will only interface the factory steering wheel controls. I believe that functionality is built into some of these radios though.
