The AUX jacks of the models with the genuine SUBARU navigation system are the RCA type. For detailed information, refer to the Owners Manual supplement for the navigation system.

The output sound of the portable audio player is not loud, and the sound via the vehicles speakers that are connected to the vehicle audio set may be very low. If you turn up the volume of the audio set, the volume becomes louder. However, when you change from one portable audio player to another one, the volume levels via the vehicles speakers may be significantly louder compared to the prior device. To avoid a large volume difference, turn down the volume when you change between portable audio players.

In some cases, when the sound volume of the portable audio player is low, the sound becomes bad when you turn up the volume of the vehicle audio system. In this case, adjust the sound volume of the portable audio player.

In some cases, noise occurs because of a bad connection between the portable player and the audio system.

Try cleaning the stereo jack and audio plug.

If noise is not reduced, check for disconnection of the cord or malfunctions of the portable player.
