2022 Limited Stereo?

Delete if old; I couldn't find this officially answered anywhere else.

I was digging through the Subaru posted parts/manuals, and found different part numbers for the Premium vs. Limited stereo system.
- Premium: Panasonic speakers
- Limited: Pioneer speakers

See attachment screenshots for reference... are we getting a better stereo this time around? Like, one that doesn't sound like gutless garbage? If so, i'm even more excited for my longer drives.

I'm beyond annoyed that I didn't think to listen to the stereos when I had a premium and limited at my place for a night. We got too distracted seeing what parts swap and then driving them. I'll chime in when I get my limited shortly, and I know there will be a couple unsold premiums in the area I can go listen to as well.

Annoyingly, the Subaru site doesn't go into detail on the audio differences.

Ha, their own documentation contradicts itself.

Here is what @MyHybridBurnsGasAndTires posted; which contradicts their 2022 BRZ page.

Totally off topic, but it seems from the above that the Limited gets nav through the Starlink service - does that mean when your 6 month or 1 year free subscription expires you lose your nav functionality?

Probably, thats how my wife's VW worked. But considering it has apple/android auto integration - I bet 90%+ people will just use their phones.

Nav isn't tied to a subscription. I'll have to look up the Gen 4 nav updates, but I know on Gen 3 you get two years of free updates then would need to pay Harmon for continued updates.

Alternatively, both trim levels have Android Auto and Apple Carplay, so nav will always be available updated through those sources.

Hopefully

Hopefully the limited has better audio. Savagegeese on YT posted the auto premium brz and said audio was best with the fancy stuff disabled. Iím already upset no CD player but that didnít stop me from placing my order (take my money I thought) Iím 45 years old so likely in the higher age range. Hearing itís more comfortable is a good thing and tuners can change that. I owned a 2013 limited manual brz and audio I thought was good I drive a 2017 GTI sport now DSG and I think that audio is pretty good for balance and clarity. Thanks for posting the pioneer vs Panasonic info!

Yeah, car nav doesn't give you traffic updates or cop locations etc. like Waze. I'd love to get the Limited for the stereo but trade the nav for a CD player.

Why not just use something like Spotify via CarPlay / Android Auto, or a USB stick that fits 100x more songs than a CD possibly can?

Agreed. Part of the reason why I went Premium is that. I donít think I have ever actually used the built in navigation in any of the cars I owned that had it. So much clumsier to use and the timing, traffic, maps, etc are never as good.
