Question Special Appearance Package --- Keyless Access

Special Appearance Package3
17-inch alloy wheels, gray with machined finish, gray finish exterior door handles, side mirrors with integrated turn signals, and grille, keyless access and start, matte finish interior wood accent trim, and 10-way power driver's seat with two position memory feature

Anyone have it?

Any problems?

Does the system make you carry a 'key' or can it be programed to your cell-phone via bluetooth?

I've had mine about 3 weeks now. Love everything about the SAP package. At first the keyless entry & start got some getting used to, but now, I wouldn't want a car unless it had it. It's a blessing not having to dig through your pockets or a briefcase/backpack to get to your keys.
Don't know about the cell-phone possibility. The Key for the Subaru, does have a mechanical key inside the key housing for locking and unlocking the glove box & can be used to lock or unlock the drivers door.

That would be very cool but I do not know of a manufacture that does that yet. Part of the problem with the idea is security and developing the program in the phone. Shoot we can't even get the head unit to download our contacts yet except one by one. Subaru is slightly behind the pack when it comes to tech stuff (yea I know eyesight is new, but Bluetooth was in cars for a few years before Subaru even offered it).

There’s also the memo from Legal to Electronics, “Open source BT stereo won’t kill anyone”.

What color did you get? Do you like the brown leather? My husband and I are trying to decide between a 2.5i Limited with the SAP package and 2.5i Premium. I so want the limited and am trying to persuade him to my side of the fence.

I got the black. It looks great. I know it's going to be hard to keep it looking good. But I've had black cars since 1993 & nothing looks as good when they are clean. The black was the only color they had that ad the SAP. They did not have a brown one for me to consider.Novablue - don't know what the problem is, but I have an iPhone. All of my contacts downloaded with no problem. The bluetooth sync has worked flawlessly.

My SAP model downloaded all my contacts just fine. This is my first Subaru, but I think the 2013 models have a different head unit than the earlier cars (or maybe it's just the SAP models that have a different head unit?). Mine doesn't appear to use DVD's for its maps, and it also doesn't lock me out when I'm moving.

I have a black SAP and love it.

The key feature does require you to have the key. It detects is you are at the driver or passenger door, at the tailgate or in the seat.

This allows you to open just the tailgate, just the driver door, or if you touch the passenger handle, all the doors.

I like the push button start, and the keyless entry is great when your hands are full. I have two little boys and this makes life easier.

1. Is there a way to lock it when you get out with out hitting a button on the key fob?
2. What is the button on the outside handle for?

Hit the little button on the outside handle.

Touching the handle is what actually triggers the car to unlock the door, while touching the button locks the doors. The manual mentions that it's possible to set up the car to unlock all the doors, not just yours, and it's also apparently possible to set it up automatically lock them when you walk away. According to the manual these are dealer-configured options, which probably means it needs an OBD-II system to set, or there's some sort of Konami code you can enter with the switchgear to access that screen.
