  1. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I have a 2020 Outback (premium) and twice in the past month the Bluetooth would randomly disappear in my phone (Android) and work phone (IPhone) couldn't connect. It was as if the Bluetooth in the head unit ceased to exist. Additionally, when that happens the two rear USB ports would stop...

    Hey all audio nerds! My Scosche BT-FM transmitter unit emits a ringing noise/high hum that seems to be related to the RPM of the engine, the higher my RPM the higher the pitch of the hum and vice versa - lower RPM, lower hum. This doesn't happen if I plug it into the AUX port of the car, only if...

    Just picked up a Google Pixel 4a running Android 11. Deleted my old phone from my Subaru, and went through the pairing process for the new phone. Phone is connected and operates as expected. Issue I am having is upon starting the car the BT doesn't connect automatically as it did with my OG...
  6. Problems & DIY 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. I was told that since getting a new head unit is not fixing it, then it must be my phone. I got a new phone, the issue is still persisting. I have been told that it is the...

    My wife is sensitive to radiation, and would like to turn off the bluetooth in our 2014 Outback. We couldn't find a switch for this. Is there some other way? Disconnecting the whole radio? Or would that create her problems?
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    I purchased a new 2020 Outback Limited and currently have just over 5,000 miles on it. I am curious to see if anyone else has encountered the same issues. I'm very much regretting the purchase at this point. 1. Car shutoff at red light and had to be restarted. I was behind a van with flashing...

    I just bought a 2015 Outback. I love it. And one of my favorite features is that it starts my music from my phone as soon as I get in the car. I have two problems, though. The first is a minor annoyance. If I have the phone on shuffle, it shuffles but the names of the song on the display (and...

    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...
