  1. 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...
  2. 2020 Outback Audio Upgrades – What’s Out There?

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    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...
  3. 2013 Head unit with CarPlay and OEM function?

    Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    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...
  4. 2017 Radio Bugs

    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...
  5. Equalizer tuning recommendations

    Gen 6: 2020-Future
    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...
  6. Bluetooth forces Google Play Music to shuffle and repeat

    Audio, Video, Security, & Navigation
    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...
  7. Radio Upgrade Recommendations?

    Gen 4: 2010-2014
    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! :)...
