I’m looking for a replacement stereo for my car. The stereo is just fine, but it runs on cd’s and I can’t use my iPhone or iPad to stream music or podcasts. It’s a 2006 Subaru Outback 3.0 VDC, and the whole radio and climate control are part of one big panel.
Priorities for me are blue tooth and the ability to plug my iPhone in and hands free communication, because I am tired of making long drives with my phone in the backseat in a leather satchel so I am not tempted to answer a call without hands free. Another priority is making sure the installation will not degrade the current interior. Sirius and all that other crap don’t matter at all. Oh, it is very important that the whole thing work with the existing controls on the steering wheel.
If needed, I’ll also upgrade my speakers and get a subwoofer if that is required. Dunno why it would, but whatever.
