Media hub versus DIY USB port for new '11 Outback limited
Posted in the Subaru Outback Forum
#1 Nov 3, 2010
I am thinking of buying 2011 Limited edition. The standard stereo does not seem to come with a USB port. There is an option to install a "media hub" for almost $500, but it appears that this hub is nothing but a cable with a USB port. It seems that my only alternatives are:
1. To buy the car without the hub and replace the stereo with a unit from a 3rd party provider like Crutchfield.
2. To buy the car without the hub and try to add the USB interface to the standard stereo myself.
The bad part about #1 is that I will lose steering wheel controls. About #2, I have no idea whether this is doable and how easy and cheap it is to do it well. Do you know?
