WRX 2016 Fujitsu-Ten Head Unit - freezing

Recommended Posts

2016 WRX Premium - FV231KS Fujistu-Ten head unit. Seems to now freeze after a couple of button clicks. Needs a car turn off on again to get functions again for a couple of clicks. In isolation everything workds. Just suddenly started.

Thinks beep but the screen won't refresh with the matching menu, but for example the radio will turn on. Or the reverse camera will engage, if the screen hasn't locked up by touching.

Any one experienced this before?
The diagnostic menu checks (home, 5 clicks of tune) all pass.
Battery pulled over night made no difference.

Smacks of a software glitch but not way to reset.

Might be a dealer visit I think.

Any suggestions on good aftermarket units that keep all the factor features, particular inbuilt-nav (not carplay stuff), steering controls, and reversing camera. I really like the manual on/off switch and volume but nothing really seems to have that now.

Small update. Had it within Winger Greenlane to see if any memory initialisation or frimware updates might do the trick.

No joy, both failed. I confirmed the memory initialisation myself. Just hangs and doesn't really execute.
Options seem to be:
a) take it out and goes to Wellington for an attempted repair. I presume there is a specialised shop there.  Via google aslautomedia.com.au in Australia seems to offer a repair.

b) currently hunting for a second hand unit
c) factory replacment. Lets just say I'm probably better investing in a new car .. :)

If b) doesn't come through I'll explore a).

Hunting around at aftermarket units. Apart from the idoing most seem to be challenged to hook into the Harmon Kardon speak system. Apparently the rear amp uses the CanBus for controls, and idoing atleast offers an adapter.

Final update, got a second hand unit installed. Back to working normally.

I went second hand as I like the factory units, the physical off and volume button. Also the maps speed camera alerts, albeit way out of date and I know you can use Waze etc but no carplay with these head units.

$560 odd for unit
$280 install etc

My research for replacements found:

Most can't deal with the Harman Kardon amp, uses CAN bus for volume and turn on controls or something. A few android units were compatible though.
Every unit is left hand drive biased in the layout.

Two interesting option were:

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
