2018 WRX and I have to think that maybe all the negative reviewers need to update their head units or have the app running before even getting in the car. I do that and have instantaneous response. The Magellan navigation app works from flawlessly. My wife's car with Android auto USB tethered takes 5 minutes sometimes to get going. 2018 WRX and Galaxy S8 are so far working extremely well for this app.
So far, completely useless. Great list of useful apps, however none of them open with aything other than a description of what it is supposed to do, not even a way to purchase it if that is what is required. Wife has all the free standing apps like weather and news in her 2017 Forester and they work great (I have a 2017 Crosstrek). All the blue tooth connection seems to do for me is let me use the in car phone, no weather or navigation apps, not even screen mirroring. Kinda bummed after it was built up so much. Love the rest of the car though
Why does a developer spend his time to code it? It's absolutely useless at this moment. Please put something useful. Sport car thinks... there are so many thinks you can add. If I had an proper IDE I would write my self something interesting and useful....
What a completely disappointing app. This had the potential to be so much better. It is slow, clunky, not very intuitive and just pointless. There are only a few apps yoy can download to use on Starlink, and they're a waste of time. For the weather you have to turn on your GPS & Bluetooth, start Starlink, hope it actually connects, then navigate to the weather -which is not even in real time! I wish Subaru, or whoever they paid to create this, would either rewrite the entire thing with actual user input, or better yet just install mirrorlink or something like it. Then at least someone would it.
Will Not buy another Subaru if Mirrorlink doesn't work. 2017 Legacy will not link or even show as active with my Galaxy S5! Update 7/17/2017: No update yet??? Still can't mirror Android even though 2017 Imprezas do??
I've had better experiences with apps that steal all my personal information and send it to Russian hackers while repeatedly crashing and freezing my devices and filling all my empty storage space with gay dwarf porn. Releasing this pile of dung to the public was disgraceful. I love my Subaru, but the whole Starlink system, in car, and especially in the app is atrocious, and Subaru doesn't even seem to care. Subaru, If you want to do right by your customers, at the very least install a working mirror mod
