    The screen contrast for Google's Android Auto maps on the infotainment display is bad. I can see the planned route OK but the side roads are barely visible. The night mode is equally bad. Am I the only person that has this issue? Why can't it be more like Subaru maps?

    Hi there! I replaced the stock receiver in my 2016 Subaru Outback Premium 2.5 with a nicer Sony system. First, I bought all items recommended by Crutchfield, but noticed later on that not all of them were needed. Parts Metra 40-LX11 Antenna Adapter Metra 70-1761 Receiver Wiring Harness Axxess...

    Hi all, just bought a new 2022 Outback Limited. When using Google Maps navigation in Android Auto, I can get the GPS signal when I just start driving, but almost immediately (or after a first turn) I get a "Searhing for GPS" error. Interestingly, the same happens on my wife's Crosstrek, but NOT...

    My first post here, though I've been lurking for several months since we got our Outback last fall. Not having CarPlay has bugged me since we got it and after months of use I found the nav system to be a sub-par experience. I knew I'd be upgrading the infotainment system sooner rather than...

    Just wondering if anybody has found any good talking email apps (iPhone and Android) that work well and won't irretrievably blow my privacy? Lol. Seems strange that the base software for iPhone and Android will read all sorts of text messages, message aps, etc, no matter how long and let you...

    I got a new Outback outdoor XT 2 weeks ago. I just want Android Auto shows same way as Apple Car Play. We just need OTA software update to enable this same as they did to Car play.... Please... put this on schedule and work on this...

    When I first plugged my phone in using a cable, it asked if I wanted to set up Android Auto. I said no because I did not have time to figure it out. Now it's like my phone has been flagged to never connect. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S20 5G Ultra.

    Hi! Today I just installed a new Kenwood radio in my 2014 Outback with HK audio system without navigation using an iDatalink Maestro RR and associated adapters. The install went well and everything works great! Except for Android Auto anyway... I'm using an adapter to plug the factory USB port...

    I have a 2018 Outback. I've been using a Samsung Galaxy S7 for a long time to run Android Auto. It will only work when connected with a cable. It works most of the time but will disconnect out of nowhere (I've replaced the cable several times) and I've finally decided I want to find something...

    I have a 2017 Outback without nav and without HK. I'd like to replace the HU with an aftermarket one to allow the use of Android Auto. However, I would also like to keep the factory backup camera. Is there a solution to do so? Crutchfield says there wiring harnesses to keep backup camera and...

    About a month ago Android Auto stopped working in my 2020 Onyx XT. It gives me a red screen on my phone and Communications Error 8, which I've gone through everything I can find to fix (restarting car, restarting phone, new cord, trying different phones, forcing updates). The problem persists...
  12. Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    I have a 2020 Outback. I notice that the navigation and other audio prompts for both Android Auto and the native navigation system only come from a single driver side front speaker. Any way to make the sound come through the full speaker system like it does in all other cars?

    I just got a new 2020 Outback. Android Auto worked with my S8 when I had the App to launch on the phone. I now have a Samsung Note20 5G with AA built into the operating system (Android 10). When the Note20 is plugged in via USB, the voice directions are audible but the map doesn't show up on the...
  14. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I find the location and alignment of the USB ports in front of the shifter to be very inconvenient. I bought right angle adapters and they seem to work fine. I was worried about signal integrity but so far no issues losing Android Auto connectivity. It's a little kludgy but I don't care. It...
