  1. Outback 2018 Navigation Displays dims with volume changes

    General Discussions
    Is there a setting to stop the navigation display from dimming (going black) when you change the volume of the radio? When I adjust the volume, the screen goes black and the volume number label shows up. I do not need the screen to go black and would like to be able to go up and down with the...

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Hi All, This morning I was testing out the navigation system, which I have used successfully multiple times, and all of the sudden my position on the map was shifted about a city blocks length away from my actual position. I recently updated the maps to map version 19739 via USB thumb drive if...
  3. 2011 outback 2.5 limited nav, audio, interior lights, remote locks not working

    Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    My nav, audio, interior lights and remote lock stopped working. I thought it was a fuse and checked the fuses but all were fine. Called SOA and they have no idea. Instead of going to a Subaru dealer or repair shop, want to know if anyone has any idea what the problem is and if it's a simple fix.

    I have a 2012 outback with the factory Navigation system. I'm in NSW Australia. There have been many new and changes to roadworks that my system does not recognise . Anyone know of a software update? The dealer told me there is not one, but I find that hard to believe. TIA.

    Our three years of free updates for our 2017 OB are (nearly) up, and have been checking for an update. My card and the Gen2 _toolbox program shows that the most current maps are 2018 Q3. Is this everyone else experience? I would have expected an update in a year. I am wondering how long...

    Hi, Is there a way to send location from phone to the Navigation system to use as destination. Using Bluetooth, or even USB? Whatever works. I have Outback 2019 with navigation, I can use Android Auto, but sometimes I would just rather use built it navigation, but then I have to type address...
  7. Native Navigation turn options

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Hello, I've been considering purchasing a 2020 Outback as my first Subaru. One question I had for current owners after my first test drive was on the native navigation. I was able to put in a location and have it start giving directions. There was 2 things I couldn't figure out and the salesman...

    It's definitely not as eager in cornering compares to my 2008 2.5, But 4-inch taller and raised ride height I am completely satisfied with it.

    The car drives like it has a V6 in it. The smoothness of the CVT, the gas pedal feedback feel.
