    This looks pretty sick first of all! I’m wondering if we’ll be able to see a software update to allow for the added functionality.

    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...

    My free 3 years of maps updates expires on December 11th. I just received an update (Rel_UA.21.41.70 NAFTA) through the Windows maps downloader app. Downloaded it to USB, installed it on my 2019 Outback, got prompted to enter the authorization code, which was a first for me (and I've read...

    Ok so this is a weird one… on my 21 Ascent if I’m listening to radio/Sirius and use Siri to send/hear a text message it mutes whatever is playing on the front speakers and lowers the volume on the rear speakers. however on my ‘18 Outback it mutes the rear speakers and the front gets louder and...

    Hi All, I have a '22 Onyx XT with the 10" screen and I have to say there are so many problems with the infotainment system. Sometimes it flat out just freezes and I have to reboot it. This is a pain while driving for it will turn off Eyesight, temperature controls, etc. (this is what you get...

    New iPhone 13 running iOS 15.0 won't show up on CarPlay. I've been using CarPlay for the past two years with no issues. Tried an identical iPhone 13 running iOS 15.0, an iPhone 8 and 11 and they all worked. Have been with apple support through multiple escalations and they are still looking into...

    Is it possible to replace the head unit on a 2016 outback with a carplay enabled head unit from a 2018 model? I read on another post that the dimensions are different, but it may be possible to do it if the Climate Panel were also changed. Would it require a rewiring of the I/O cables? Would...

    This could be a carplay issue or just the way that Subaru interfaces with Carplay. I am noticing that if I am in Apple Podcasts or Amazon Music apps within the carplay interface and if I have more podcasts in the library section than will fit on the screen the horizontal bar to keep scrolling...

    I took a rather large rock to the wndshield and had to get it replaced through Safel**** glass. They did both calibrations. When I got into the car, I found they disabled almost everything eyesight related and I've been turning them all back on. They are working fine now. One of the last items...

    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...

    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...

    Hello all, My cousin asked me today if I could add a new headunit with apple carplay to his car and maybe also add remote start (automatic transmission). I found a remote start kit online but it seems to be sold out indefinitely. I figured I'd come here and ask for recommendations. Can I put...

    Got an email from Subaru about OTA update today. Between meetings I went and applied the update. Now we get CarPlay on full screen: Anyone else tried it?
  14. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    I, like many of you, would love for Apple CarPlay to be full screen on these large displays. That one change would make things not only more convenient but also safer. I see rumor after rumor posted in countless threads that full screen Android Auto* and/or Apple CarPlay are coming in some...
  15. Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    I’ve scoured the site and other forums, and I can’t find anything that can clarify if stock functions of steering wheel buttons (answer/hang up calls; volume, scan/track; mode, etc), and the stock Aux/USB connections in the console box while also being a CarPlay unit. Can anyone steer me toward...

    I recently purchased a used 2017 Outback. (2.5i premium without navigation). I love the car but wish I had navigation. I saw some "Starlink" app pics that showed Magellan Navi options that didn't require factory navigation installed. Is this correct? Is there a Starlink app, or another way...

    Hey guys has anyone heard about a possible update coming to make Apple CarPlay use the full screen on the 2020 Outback? From what I gather it’s not an issue from Subaru but rather an update that needs to be made by Apple to allow CarPlay to fill in vertically. CarPlay was updated in iOS 13 to...

    Hi there, Does anyone have a good guess how the screen may look like after the Apple iOS13 release, which apparently will support other/bigger screen sizes? Would Subaru also have to release a firmware update to allow a bigger Carplay screen? On another note, still can’t believe they...
