I have the Outback 3.6 but not Touring and have not seen this issue. Looks like you need to take it back to your dealer and get it fixed under warranty. It may be something as simple as rebooting the GPS or maybe you need a new unit.
I have also a 2017 3.6R Subaru Outback and the gps froze while driving from Reno mountains to San Francisco. this is the second time it happened on hte same laocation. It happened last February coming home from Reno, Nevada to San Francisco, California. I noticed that the gps froze. After I stopped in Dublin and re started the car, then it came back. This happened again today coming back from Reno, Nevada and I think it freezes at the same location. Will try to complain at the dealer and see what they will say.I have a 2017 Subaru Outback 3.6L Touring. The car has a quirk in the GPS system. The system shows your location different from where you are driving. It can show you going through a lake at times. The GPS signal antenna comes on at times but she keeps showing movement miles out of the location I am at. And then in a brief second after as much a 1 half hour doing this it corrects itself. This has happened on I 4, The Florida turnpike, major roads like 192 etc. I have used my portable Tom Tom unit and phone GPS. They both work while the in car unit goes crazy. Any help as Subaru keeps looking for codes.
I think I found the problem. They installed a GSP instead of a GPS. No wonder things aren't in the right position.I have my Outback 2017 Limited. My GSP is about 50 to 1000 ft off the position. I brought back to dealer three times before a senior technician confirmed that my GSP has a delay. Subaru USA couldn't help out to resolve the issue. I going to complain to Subaru Japan. I am not sure if there are any more Outback 2017 owners have similar the GSP inaccuracy issue. We need to make Subaru to take the responsibilities to fix its product. I am thinking about Class lawsuit if a lot of owners have the similar problem. Paul Y.
Some may be better than others, but all GPS systems do the sketchy routing thing to some extent. Our Garmin routed us on a shortcut in rural PA that turned into a dirt road, then fairly steep and rocky dirt road, then two-track, before emerging at the other end. That was in our Camry; it would have been much less concerning in the OB, but we made it, anyway, with only a couple times getting out to look over the situation before committing. It also showed us roads in a subdivision that apparently has been platted but not yet built.I have had several of the problems mentioned here: trying to have me turn onto roads that don't exist and never have, showing roads that probably used to be there but were taken out, showing me driving off the highway, etc.
I think in my case it's the terrible maps used in the Tom Tom.
As long as you have cell coverage that should work. Some places I go, that is not the case, which is why I prefer stand-alone units; there are workarounds for this, but, meh!I decided to use Android Auto with Google or Ways maps and try the Subaru unit again when I get the "free map upgrade" the salesman promised me. Anyone know when this map upgrade is going to happen?
I hope you got that promise in writing. Don't count on updated maps being significantly better than what you already have.
