Posts: 1,095 worries my friend. The HK units in the 2017 and 18 are 3.0 version radios. They must have made a hardware change in the 2019 because it is now classified as a version 3.1 so not just a software change. I must say that the NAV unit in my 17 Impreza Limited has been totally trouble free.

This...if they kill the new WRX I was planning on doing the same thing. We will be about halfway or more paid depending how long you financed for so with the trade in hopefully it will be a fairly even swap payment wise. Plus that new WRX is going to be amazing and who wouldn't want the 2020
