  1. Bluetooth Audio

    Problems & Maintenance
    Hello, I’m hoping I can find some help here as I can’t find anything anywhere else. I just bought a used 2011 outback 3.6 limited. It has the Nav and HK audio system. My problem is getting my phone (IPhone xs Max) to connect to the car. Maybe 20% of the time it will connect automatically at...

    Hello, I am having Bluetooth issues with my 2019 outback. I have had the head unit replaced 2x and the issue is persisting.

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Howdy all, When I use the BT to listen to books from my iphone on my 2016 impreza the volume cycles up and down every five seconds or so (regardless of whether the car is moving, so it isn't that it just gets louder as I go faster). It's as if it is trying to find a sweet spot. Does anyone...
