  3. Head unit questions from a newbie.

    Gen 4: 2010-2014
    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...
  4. 2015 head unit replacement, backup camera not engaging

    Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    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...

    Gen 2: 2000-2004
    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...

Can anyone steer me toward...

  8. Has Anyone Updated Their Maps Via Wifi?

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    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...
  9. 2018 Harmon Kardon Service or Factory menu on head unit

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    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...
