2015 Subaru BRZ and AVIC-8200NEX

Post by J.Dauby » Sat Sep 02, 2017 10:47 am


I own a 2015 Subaru BRZ and a AVIC-8200NEX. My main goal with the RR was gauges. I have the correct wiring harness but the AVIC-8200NEX does not show up when trying to flash when I select a 2015 BRZ. However if I select a 2017 BRZ the 8200 shows up. If I flash for a 2017 BRZ the Maestro does not provide power to the head unit.
I attempted to bypass the RR, only running power and OBD to the RR. Flashed it for the 2017 BRZ and when connected to the AVIC-8200NEX it will show gauges for 5 seconds then disconnect requiring me to remove the power and restart. The outstanding issue is that I can not interface the RR with a 2015 BRZ and flash the module for a AVIC-8200NEX. When flashing the module for a 2015 BRZ the unit functions normally just without gauges.

-The AVIC-8200NEX needs to be added to the 2015 BRZ when flashing a RR module

What RR do you have- a RR256, or a RR512? In order for that radio to show up, you need a RR512. There is not enough space on the RR256 to store the whole firmware, so it won't show up when you're flashing.
