A client from Upperco came to Westminster Speed and Sound looking to add Apple’s CarPlay to his 2014 Subaru Outback. One of our team went out to his vehicle to see how it was currently equipped. After talking through options with him, we worked up a proposal that he liked, so we set a time to begin working on the SUV.
We began by installing a Sony XAV-AX100 unit that has CarPlay and Android Auto functionality onboard. this Subaru had a factory-installed backup camera, so our team modified it to work seamlessly with the new Sony unit. We also integrated the steering wheel mounted audio controls to work with the new stereo system and flushed a USB port into the center console in a convenient location.
As you can see in the final pictures, the new unit looked like a factory-installed option. While we had the Outback, we installed a remote car starter that works with his iPhone, using a DroneMobile smartphone interface. Now his vehicle can be climate-controlled every day of the year and scraping windows becomes a distant memory.
