Heated seats and dual climate control

This might have been asked before but all I've found about dual climate control is a harness. Is that all that's needed? Or is there a device needed to be installed ? It has been done, there is a video on YouTube of someone doing it. If anyone can list what's needed for the swap, I'd greatly appreciate it!

For heated seats, is there a universal kit that's easy to install? What parts will I need for it?


Thanks for your input!

Also, what head unit are you guys using? / recommend ? I have the upgraded 2013 head unit. It's this..
While it works, it's pretty awful. It shuffles like 15 songs, no search feature. I want something preferably with a volume knob.

How much do you want for the head unit. I love that head unit! Much better than the 2016 BRZ head unit

If you're talking about over Bluetooth, that's the fault of the music player in your phone, not the head unit. Try a different phone.

Thanks for that post! However, it doesn't show how to install dual climate control module. It's just the knobs.

For head unit advice, I'd cruise around the electronics section, although tbh, I'd prob just recommend hitting up crutchfield and looking at dbl din units, the space will accomidate just about any regular dbl din nicely, and you'll get a lot more content there as far as reviews on this brand or that. I'm running a pioneer 4100NEX though for reference.

Prices vary with stereo equipment, espec with age.
You are using an iphone it appears look for head units with apple carplay. it'll do what your asking.. I have the 4100NEX which does carplay and android auto. I use google maps on my head unit virtually every day.

That's because swapping the dual climate control is lengthy and expensive.

At this point, it doesn't really seem worth it, unless you can find one at a junkyard for cheap. And you know what you're doing.
