Forester 2018 pioneer in dash radio system

Hello, my wife and I are purchasing a new 2801QS Forester the due date is sometime in January of 2018 and was wondering what pioneer system it comes with, If anyone knows? I Was also wondering if GPS and Sirius radio can be used with it? You can bet, I will have plenty of questions to ask about this RV unit? Thank you in advance,

I have a 2016 2801QS and you will love this rig. The pioneer is new for 2017 and up and as I remember uses the GPS from your phone. I'm sure someone will chime in who has the pioneer. There are actually quite a few of us who have the 2801 here on the forums so you will have no shortage of help. Congratulations on your new rig.

The Pioneer head unit is the model AVH-X2800BS. It does not have A GPS Built in.
You will need the Sirius SXV300 vehicle connect tuner. The tuner connects to the rear of the head unit. The needed antenna also comes with the tuner.
You can find the tuner all over the net for anywhere between $35 to $50.
