2010 Subaru Legacy H/K Media Hub Problems
Hey all. i'm new here but on my second subaru legacy. i just picked up a 2010 Legacy 2.5i limited with the harman kardon system. i wanted to add the media hub so i could run my ipod. so i picked one up and hooked everything up with out any problems at all but it does nothing. won't charge the ipod. won't talk to the ipod nothing at all it's like i didn't even put the thing in. any ideas would be great. i'm still waiting to hear back from the dealer i bought it from also.
thanks again

Have you tried a flash drive to make sure it isn't the ipod?

Does your iPod have the most up to date firmware?

i have not tried a flash drive i'll give that a try, and yes it is up to date, i'll even try anouther ipod

oh i have tried it all. i would of thought at if anything i would of gotten the thing to charge the ipod but i dont get anything out of it

The rest of the radio (cd, am, fm) works?

If a flash drive doesn't you have another usb cable you can try? It's a long cable that goes from the hub through the console to the radio...

everything else works i even skiped the wire and used the ipod cable straight to the media hub and still absolutly nothing

So i ended up going back to the dealer and getting another media hub. still nothing, i talked to one of the techs there and he was telling me that is pretty common with subaru accessories. they will show they work but won't do anything. so i dunno i might try an isimple but i'm worried that won't work either.
thanks for everbodys help

Prior to the media hub, did the 3.5mm input work?

FWIW, my media hub worked fine.

yeah , my aux jack has always worked no problem at all, what year legacy do u have and what radio system do u have?

2010 with the H/K

Are you 100% sure it was installed correctly? The wiring harness was kinda confusing.....

Since the 3.5 input worked...and you've tried swapping usb cables....and you've tried a new media hub....I don't know what else could be wrong :(

oh yeah i'm deff sure i installed it right, thats f'n weird dude, i found the install not a problem at all and the wires to be very straight forward. i even pulled out my multimeter and started testing to see if i was getting power and ground where it was supose to be and everything was fine it just wouldn't talk to the ipod at all. like i said before i tried another one from the dealer that did nothing too so i just returned it for my money. but also the tech i was talking to at subaru told me that have had problems like that and i guess toyota has had the same problems with items like the media hub acording to my coworkers
