    Hey guys, Long time reader, first time poster! I have a Gen 5 2017 OB 2.5i and for whatever reason, it does NOT come with Apple Car play. I am reaching out to the community in hopes that someone, somewhere has installed an aftermarket USB plug in dongle, like CarlinKit that has been...

    My radio died the other day - no sound at all. Tried a few things but no luck. Bright it to the dealership because I thought it might be an issue with the head unit and covered under the class action extended warranty. Dealership says it's the amplifier that needs to be replaced which is not...

    I've placed an order for a Touring XT, arriving in March. Loved the way the turbo drove and the quiet demeanor of the cabin. Pretty much LOVED the car. But then I joined this forum and started reading all the comments about the Denso head unit rebooting. And how numerous software updates have...

    I have a 2021 Outback Limited which I have had for just over a year. There have been 3 occasions which the head unit will stop responding. I cannot change the radio, the heater controls are inop, and I get warnings that the RBA a d EyeSight are not working. After a couple of minutes the...

    I have a 2015 outback 3.6R and HK speaker system. I replaced the infotainment unit recently, and I was checking the unit, everything is good, the navigation, all buttons. But the thing is I could not hear anything from the speaker, including AM/FM and Bluetooth. I have checked every cable behind...

    Driving along today with apple CarPlay and the audio suddenly became nothing but a high pitched buzz. All inputs. Gets louder with volume control. Tried resetting the audio twice, no success. Now there’s no sound at all, from any source. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Just had a pioneer 8600nex installed and it works great. Love it so far. Couple minor issues I'm wondering if anyone else has had in a similar situation... 1. Seat memory only works with the car off completely. And then only sometimes. 2. Liftgate won't open either unless car is totally off. I...

    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...

    Hi all! New 2020 Outback 2.5 Peak Edition CVT owner here, and a very pleased one at that. I'm of the curious sort, so I like digging in menus, seeing what I can find, adjust, update and such. So of course I chose to update the vehicle software when it told me there was an avaliable update...

    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...

    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...

    So- I'm a college kid and after a long, sparkly-eyed search of all the subarus I could ever dream of owning, I found that I could inherit my family's 2012 3.6R HK Bluetooth No-nav Outback with 111k miles and a flawless service record. We've had it for years and it was one of the cars I had...

    Hi all, I have a 2015 base model Outback with the smaller 6.3" (I think) head unit. Recently, the touch screen stopped working and I had the dealer flash the firmware but reported back that they were unable to make the touchscreen work. The dealer wanted $1100 for a new head unit, but I opted...

    Hello everyone. While trying to swap the CDs around in the 6 disc CD changer of my 04 LL Bean, I seem to have jammed it! I think the issue is a slipping component, as when I start the car I can hear the little motor inside working, but somewhere inside the motion isn't being transferred (I...

    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...

    Hi I’ve seen threads re software updates and head unit fixes. I had the last Software update in February of this year and yesterday randomly all sound disappeared. Radio stations, NAV, media, CarPlay. I can see what is supposed to be playing on the screen i.e. various radio stations but there is...

    I have a 2019 OB 3.6R. Just finished the firmware update via USB drive, no issues. I was under the impression that update also updates the maps, but apparently it doesn't. I connected my head unit to Wifi and got a message saying everything was up to date. Then I went into settings and went...

    Ok, so apologies for those who already knew this, the forum search didn't lead me to any answers for my specific make/model/head unit but I was able to figure it out using trial and error after seeing how to access the menus for other years. Oddly enough they aren't exactly the same. If you're...
