older oem audio plus kit in 17+ 86 brz

Does anyone know if the older oem audio+ kits will work in the newer 86 brz with touch screen and backup cameras. Specifically curious about a 2020 86.

I contacted OEM audio+ but they are cryptic and will not give a straight answer, they're awful to deal with if you buy their kits used if anyone is wondering. Even offered to pay for consultation or anything, they just try to get you to buy a new kit.

biggest change from previous was the harmon kardon radio in the hakone edition that bypassed the amp and didn't have an amp-turn-on output. as long as your car is using the oem amp for the doors(without the yellow-wire bypass plug connected at the amp), everything should be the same from '13-'20 in terms of wiring.

the threads you're looking for are going to be with @FR-S2GT86 involved. he did a ton of work with tcoat figuring out how/why the hakone radio sounded different from previous versions.

this thread in the how-to section is 1 of 2 he made about re-enabling the amp(this is the reversible plug-n-play method, the other is more non-reversible), but keeping everything else the same with the car. you're going beyond that, but if you've got a decent understanding of vehicle electrical, you should be able to figure it out from there.

I have a 2016 with the older OEM+ system in it and recently added the head unit from the 2020 Hakone to my car. I had to add the amp turn on signal referenced in the thread linked to above by soundman98 and then everything worked fine.

I don't want to be a neg but why not get a new kit?

Since its a Hakone, I would only give it the best

because the hakone doesn't have an amp turn-on wire, i have my doubts that any struggle he's going to encounter with a used kit is going to be the same as buying a new kit.

might as well save the money and get the used kit.
