dadduorp says:

I just pre-ordered an Ascent Limited and this was exactly the tutorial I was looking for. Well done—thanks! Questions…

1). Can you delete apps that you don’t use or need?

2). Does the settings interface for the sound system change depending on what type of system you have (ie stock vs. Harman Kardon, etc.)?

Thanks again!

Good review keep it up

Gemster18 says:

If you notice at 3 minutes and 16 seconds in a screen pops up when she tries to hit the stall link telling her that the phone needs to be connected via Bluetooth, this is a major problem with this shity app! It is very unpredictable sometimes it’ll work sometimes it won’t is anybody else have the same problem? Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Any thoughts would be great. Thank you in advance.

Suzanne Kerns says:

Thank you! Very Helpful. This car is smarter than I am! Even the older salesman (men) have trouble with the system! It is only the young guys who “get it'”. This helped me a lot (I’m 78) and traveling across country from CA to PA and have had difficulty with the navigation system. I could not figure out how to turn off the audio as my partner kept using SIRI and her directions were almost directionally opposite from Starlink’s audio. I couldn’t listen to both at the same time and no one at the car dealership could tell me via iphone how to turn off the navigation “audio” so I could listen to one voice. When Siri said turn right 500 feet, the Starlink said “turn left in 1000 ft.” Terrible confusing. N ow I have a little more info . Thanks. Wish me luck, as I’m only in Tucson now! Suzanne

Virginia Smith says:

Just bought a new Outback. I’m trying to figure out how to use the “My Subaru” app. I downloaded to my phone and there is nothing there except a picture. This video mentioned the app but the guy’s hand was over the screen….how does the My Subaru App work with the StarLink App?

Joanne Cahill says:

How do you update the TomTom maps?

a toz says:

Great review! I have a question on the ability to turn-off the radio as was possible in the 2015 Subaru Legacy and turn on whenever I wanted to. In my 2018 Legacy it seems I can’t shut it off and whenever the car starts it automatically turns on the radio and then switches to the USP plug -in automatically. Is this a new feature of the infortainement system or are you actually able to turn radio off and turn on when you want to ?

Gene Meyerowich says:

Is there a step by step tutorial I can follow? This is a little above my level of knowledge!

Em says:

How do you add the map?

Tom Sullivan says:
