What's the point? This is such a basic app that I really don't get the point of why it's even an option. I have a 2015 Outback and finally got around to trying out StarLink thru the connection with my Samsung galaxy 4. Not impressed. If I could add apps to it for use on my car's speaker system that would be terrific: Google Maps for example. Needs lots of work to make it worth taking up space on my phone.
What's the point? With out the app you get music, sports, stocks, and weather(limited select of cities). I got the app and it's basically a new music player app(with no new features), and umm.. nothing else. Unless I'm missing something it's just some other app to run on your phone to drain the battery on it. With no new features nor customization.
I want to like this App With my new 3.6R Outback which has realtime traffic and weather I wanted to have more Apps. Unfortunately, Starlink is like looking through the Hubble telescope before corrective lenses, an out of focus star. Apps hang, are few and mirror to some extent, (weather) what you get with Sirrius. Subaru needs to open their API to a trusted dev community which can bring a wealth of useful Apps to users, I would pay for useful Apps. Can you imagine a deal with Google for the social engine within Waze...
Amazingly useless Iheartradio? No sound. Aha? Spins pointlessly, no reverse. Recommendations via yelp, sorry of? No way to not hear it readout the full review of every coffee shop in San Francisco. ... was there no user testing at ALL? (2015 XV)
I have a 2015 Impreza It took a couple of days for the systems to really get friendly. I have an LG phone on AT&T and now I got it situated it works decent. People focus two much on the negative. Although its a little slow it's very fun:)
Please Subaru, step in and fix this garbage!! I love my 2015 manual impreza. But please Subaru, use this app yourself and pay a college kid $150 to fix this garbage once you see what a POS this software is.... The buttons are too small for my screen (HTC m8), the interface on the phone and car is slow and won't always connect, the app drains power when I'm not around the car, the Google calendar is garbage, why can't I see upcoming reminders, instead of searching each day/week? News is ok, so is weather, but interface is slow to load and is Windows 95
