wanted good bluetooth for using my phone
replaced the radio unit with alpine
sound from standard speakers much much better
playing songs from phone via bluetooth 100% quality
making phonecalls better than most
only gripe - expensive unit - but worth it

Nope, but they're very overpriced in my opinion. For that kinda money or less I'd rather get a Parrot Asteroid Smart but it depends on what you want from a radio I guess.

Replaced the radio in my Forester with a simple Kenwood double din radio with bluetooth. Sounds much better.

Gerhard - have you hooked the subwoofer up? Connections are on the 8 pin block connector apparently but I'm not sure if they're high or low inputs.

May the Forester be with you...

I have the Casca unit. It's a piece of over-priced crap that doesn't work properly and the backup sucks.
Getting a Subaru is like marrying a slut.

It's lekker in the beginning, but then you find out.

Forget to mention, I got te "sub" working - the connections are on the 8 pin connector. Far RHS ones, + is at the top.
