This was installed on my Subaru WRX STI 2013, it keep the center OEM USB, on my Galaxy S3, it does keep the charging. But USB Key will not work to listen to music.

Perfect match

The USB cable adapts the Subaru factory radio's unique USB port to a standard USB cable, enabling the factory USB port to be used with an aftermarket radio.

Simple hookup for my 2014 STI. I was able to keep my console sub connection with this simple cable. Delivery was fast. I would use them again.

Absolutely awesome, its just what I needed

I used this in my 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STi for my aftermarket radio. The usb no longer worked when I put my new kenwood headunit in and this is exactly what I needed to get it back, now all I need a cable for the aux jack! :p Plus it literally only took 2 minutes to install!!! :D

Works Flawlessly

Installed in my 2012 Subaru Forester with an aftermarket head unit to use existing USB port in boot. Connects perfectly and I've had no issues with it. The stock USB port works just like it did with the original head unit.
