    My Outback's infotainment screen has visible lines from the touch sensors that make it particularly hard to see the backup camera feed when in direct sunlight. For anyone who got their infotainment screen replaced on their 2015 outback: 1. How much did it cost for the parts and labor to replace...

    Hi everyone I am brand new! Will pick up my first ever Subaru tomorrow, an Outback Limited XT. I have been reading a lot online and then found this forum and it seems like a good place! My question is where do I go online to see what the most current software/maps/firmware versions are? I...

    I just test drove a '16 outback limited with 89k on the dash. At certain points especially when the sun hit the screen these lines showed up all across the screen. Also it's listed as having remote start, but it wouldn't start using the fob, had to just press the button like a peasant. Aaand the...

    Anyone have any clue if this system will be better than the current? I saw it has visual UI tweaks but have heard nothing about performance thus far which is, honestly, the biggest concern.

    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...

    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...

    I had the opportunity to reach out to XPEL headquarters in San Antonio TX to ask about which exact product SKU to us for the Infotainment and Shifting platform protection film. While XPEL does have a kit for the Subaru Outback (Interior Kit (ULTIMATE PLUS)), the kit has many components that...

    So, eyesight saved me from rear ending someone who cut me off, but the bed frame I had in the back slid forward and punctured the screen. I see that the “display unit” costs about $600 which I’m willing to pay, but I can’t find any videos showing what I’d be getting myself into. Anyone know how...

    Hey guys I have a 2017 Outback 3.6R. I know it doesn’t have Apple CarPlay but the 2018 model does. The info screen in the 18 is slightly refreshed but it appears as if it’s the same size in the 17 because the interior isn’t updated. Is it possible to switch out my infotainment screen (and the ac...

    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...

    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...

    A little less than two weeks ago, I purchased a brand new 2021 outback xt from Hanlees Subaru in Napa. After driving the car off the lot and arriving home for the first time, I noticed a small defect in the dash panel along where the panel meets the infotainment system's edge. I know this is a...

    Hi, I'm new here. The wife and I own a 2018 Limited 2.5i with the HK infotainment system. I'm going to get straight to the issue. Once the vehicle is on, the infotainment system starts to freak out and start selecting/tapping things on the screen by itself. Which then creates the issue of it...

    Does it happen to anyone else that when using their iPod the album art displayed on the infotainment screen is completely different from what's on the iPod? I usually connect via bluetooth and it's an iPod, not an iPhone, so there is no internet connection. I have album art embedded in the mp3s...

    Yesterday my 11" Infotainment system when black just after starting the engine. I also got an "Eye Sight Disabled" and "RAB off" warnings. I was able to drive home uneventfully. (I have been driving for over 50 years without "Eye Sight" and "RAB"). I tried various re-starts and after about a...

    Had my Outback for about a month and just left some hairline scratches in my infotainment trying to vacuum it (stupid, I know). They are driving me NUTS!!!!! I'm afraid that putting any cleaners on it will only make it worse. Obviously, I wouldn't use an abrasive. I read meguiars 17 clear...

    I'm starting to think that a reasonable amount of my dislike of the infotainment is actually the bugginess of the Amazon Music app. What is everyone using and liking for music between Amazon, Apple Music and Spotify. Don't say Pandora because that serves a different purpose for me and doesn't...

    I have a new 2020 Outback with homelink that I got less than a month ago. After having the dealer replace a tire yesterday, I was driving back home and the radio turned off by itself. Actually, the entire head unit went dark, but it came back on when I pushed the power button. At the time, I...

    Hi everyone, Picked up my first Outback ever yesterday and went to update Infotainment screen to 704, however the update said it failed while installing and now my infotainment screen seems to boot up, then go black, and all Starlink safety features have been disabled. Wondering if any kind...
