Radio model: The Seicane H2023N-P, for 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Subaru Forester stereo upgrade.

For safety, you must power off the car before doing anything.

What I benefited from this Seicane Radio Head Unit?
The fact is my drives get better since installing the touchscreen Android radio.
This unit equips a 9-inch IPS screen and Android 11 system, being able to provide a super fast and smooth operation. What’s more, the big screen also brings great vision when watching videos and using navigation.
One of powerful functions is that it comes built-in Carplay, which means you can quickly connect your phone the radio, then you can freely use the phone’s apps like making calls, listening to phone music etc. on the radio screen.
Another great function of the head unit is that we can install and connect a rear view camera to the car, the radio will display the rearview images automatically when we reverse and park the car, helping us park car conveniently and safely.
Whatever your car is, when there is touchscreen head unit, your journey must be great.
