2015 Nav Head Unit- New Firmware NU9020

Hey all,

Just picked up a used OB a couple days ago (2015, Limited) and had them update the head unit firmware to what I assumed would be NU9017. When the technician finished he said the latest was actually NU9020, I double checked the unit and sure enough it said NU9020. I asked what the changes were but he was confident I could just google it. I did, and can't find anything on the new firmware.

Anyone have an idea of what has changed in NU9020 from NU9017?

My 2017 OB Limited with Nav was updated yesterday. They said they installed version NU9508 and said it was the newest. I had a problem with FM presets to 87.5 intermittingly. Appears to have fixed it.
I also had no luck finding details. Might search for Starlink head unit firmware. I got hints but no details.

Maybe try searching for various versions of TSB 15-198-16 or TSB 15-198-16R. These are two TSBs that dealt with the Fujitsu 10 head unit on MY15 vehicles.

One thing that is confusing to me is I referred to the TSB 15-205-16, which is also for these same head units on MY15 and MY16 vehicles.

Re-read page 1 of TSB 15-205-16. The answer is there.

I just had my 2017 OB (7" Fujitsu F10 Navi) flashed yesterday from NU9606 to the "latest" NU9508. Weird that an update has a lower version number than the one that came with the car.

I have the same 2017 with navi and the same NU9606 version. It is good to know that when I have it done at the dealer that 9508 will be installed.

I am really hoping it fixes the crazy Google maps bug when the phone is plugged into the USB ports.

It says it fixes the gps bug, but it doesn’t ?

I don't suppose anyone has a change log or knows what's different in NU9020? Or has installed it on top of NU9017?

I have NU9017 installed on my 2015 Outback and it seems to be working fine. I'm wondering if I should push my luck or not .

I just got my 2015 Outback upgraded to NU9020 today, from NV9006. I mainly got it done so I could mute the navigation.
NOTE: With the new firmware, you cannot mute the navigation audio from the steering wheel controls. That only mutes the radio. To mute the navigation audio you have to go to the navigation menu settings screen and press on the speaker icon to mute / unmute.

When I requested a changelog for the new firmware, the service rep was told they aren't supposed to print it out and give it to customers. Instead he wrote down the firmware version and the TSB number, 15-2015-16R. I can only find 15-2015-16 online. That one doesn't show all changes by version number. What's the purpose of providing firmware updates but not telling customers what they can expect from the new firmware?!

Hi all,

I am searching for the files:
NU9017_USB_1st.exe
NU9017_USB_2nd.exe

maybe someone has them and could share them? because it would be nice to use my phone with the system.
