First, consumes large amounts of battery power. Second you can't shut if OFF easily you have to force it off! Third, it is so darn slow I get directions after I Arrive at the destination. Fourth, what are the stupid stars and galaxy background for it makes the screen look dirty. I scratch my led screen on my 2018 outback trying to clean the screen before I realized it was the static background. Stupid software program managers in development team. Fifth, some of the apps lock up my entire star link system and don't work.
My second Subaru and even though the price went up the usefulness of the infotainment certainly did not. Nothing works. Nothing syncs. The whole app and touch screen is a waste of time and money. I can't believe Subaru allows this to happen. SHAME.
What has changed that you jumped from 1.0.5 to 1.3.0 I don't see any changes on gen 2 fujitsu in 2017 outback. Are only gen 3 owners getting attention? Sell and forget SUBARU? Naughty!
This app needs a LOT of work!! I love my car, but this app really sucks and makes the fancy navigation I was so excited about hard to use... Not only does it take forever to load, but it backs out of my preferred route every time I talk on the phone, stop for gas, etc. I really hope your developers make a LOT of improvements. Especially for Magellin navigation. I wish there was an alternative program I could use.
Honestly this has to be one of the worst app and infotainment systems I have EVER use. Getting it to work is its own battle. App crashes, UI is very small, constantly get error messages, set up is confusing and overall painfully slow. App requires a force close to stop the app. On the car most of the time gives a connection error and when it does work the "Apps" load extremely slow (iHeart takes 5 MINUTES! to load or longer). iHeart app is the US version so you can't login with a Canadian Account. I tried this on different versions and models with similar results. Not sure what the update is as I've never seen a improvement just some new apps that are not available for my car. I love driving my Subaru but the infotainment is soo terrible it's made me rethink my future car purchases.
This app is an embarrassment for Subaru. It's so bad they didn't even bother to add an exit option, it says click here to close and then takes you to the place you can click force close.
