    I so appreciate the conversations on this site, it's helped me so much as a new Subie owner. I have the 2020 Limited, Is there a way to access the radio function while in my Maps in Apple CarPlay?

    Hi, I have an OEM Radio in my Outback. Lately, I notice the display gets corrupted where I can't read the radio station display - the numbers get garbled up - and the radio becomes unresponsive. It eventually functions normally on its own. This has been a reoccurring issue the past month or...

    I just bought a 2017 Outback 2.5i Premium. While playing with the options I found two in the radio that are completely nonfunctional. I can't change the checkmark to grey and the checkmark being blue does not honor the setting. The driver's door unlocks first. These are found in the vehicle...

    Hi All, After 13y owning my 2004 3.0 I didn't feel like getting another upgrade for the Kenwood navigation system and looked into replacing the navigation unit with an Android Head Unit. The GX-201LE was still functioning properly, but in all fairness its pretty outdated. I had installed a RF...

    I'm new to the Subaru world, don't even have 100 miles on my new Outback Limited, so I'm still figuring things out, but I'm confused by a discrepancy between the owner's manual and the settings menu. In the owner's manual it has a long list of audio settings, the one I was most interested in was...

    I just bought my 2011 OB and it appears to have a 2012 radio model in it. For the LIFE of me I cannot figure out how to adjust the bass/treble level, and whoever owned this car last turned the bass up super high. I’m not really good with these kind of things and would appreciate any help! This...

    On my wife's new 2020 Outback when you adjust the audio EQ settings they revert back to FLAT the next time the car is started. My 2017 Outback remembers the EQ settings once set. Is this a flaw that can be repaired or is there something we are missing to get the car to remember the EQ audio...

    I just bought a 2005 Outback 2.5 Limited and it came with a radio/CD player only. What are my options to play music from my phone?

    Hi all, I have a 09' Outback with the nav system and the aux input. I'm not sure if the issue we're talking about appeared from the 200000 km service, but the controls on the steering wheel and the auxiliary input don't work anymore. The cruise control on the steering wheel works well and 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...

    The under performing audio systems in the 2020 Outbacks have been frequently criticized here in the forum. As too has the unavailability of the Harmon Kardon (HK) audio upgrade in the popular Onyx trim line. Let us also not forget the apparently forgettable Rockford Fosgate (RF) upgrade that...

    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...
  14. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I seem to be the minority around here, but I've had some (albeit minor) issues out of the radio in my 2017. The first issue was the radio changing stations and the touch buttons (home, map, info, etc.) would lock up and become unresponsive. The dealer swapped in a new radio under warranty and...

    Any recommendations for properly setting the equalizer? Either with recommended settings for specific audio types, or some explanation of the logic behind those settings. At least with the Harmon Kardon system, we can adjust the low, mid, high, as well as the balance and fade. I usually bump...

    I just bought a 2015 Outback. I love it. And one of my favorite features is that it starts my music from my phone as soon as I get in the car. I have two problems, though. The first is a minor annoyance. If I have the phone on shuffle, it shuffles but the names of the song on the display (and...

    I have a 2012 Outback without Nav built in with the single din OEM radio. Wanted to upgrade to a double din touchscreen headunit (with Apple CarPlay preferred but not necessary) but don't know which to get or if I am able to :p Just asking for recommendations or a push in the right direction! :)...
