I am looking to replace the OEM navigation set up in my 2013 WRX. The OEM system looks great but functionally it’s terrible IMO. Unable to play music via Bluetooth and the sound quality is terrible. At max volume it’s quite low. Perhaps it’s a dud.
I don’t want to spend too much in replacing it as I have already spent on a bit in purchasing the car. I would like to install a reverse camera as I am finding the height of boot makes reverse parking challenging at times.
Looking for options as far as installers and car audio stores (Sydney) that a reasonably priced. I am debating as to whether I should buy the equipment and have them installed or take it to a car audio place.
Would love to be able to do it myself but am not that technical.
Advice and tips welcome.

These days you can get head units that integrate your sat nav and reverse camera features into the head unit.
You will need some tools along the way. Multimeter is an important one. Wire cutters, screw drivers, wire joiners are a few of the other things you’ll need.
When learning these things it’s good to have a mate that knows what they’re doing to learn from. Not always possible but is the best solution.
The alternative is a one stop shop - An audio store should be able to give you a quote for items and fitment for what you want. The go from there. Suss out one you’re happy with and go from there

Do a bit of Google searching to see what's available for your model / budget, as there are a wide range of products available nowadays.
Sorry I'm not familiar enough with Sydney market to recommend any one, but best bet would be to checkout your local area for reputable shops that do these kind of installs would be my suggestion. ...
