    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hi all, I have a 2014 Crosstrek XV, whichever model was the top of the line that year. My bluetooth connects and works for phone calls, and it shows a connection to my iPhone for Spotify and podcasts (the track name, etc. registers on the screen) but no sound comes out. I've disconnected and...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hey all, I've been poking around here on the forums and I haven't quite seen what I'm asking about, so here goes. I know a lot of people say the stock audio system ('19 non Rockford) is pretty crappy. But for a stock audio system to me, it's not bad. Yes I came out of my 2001 Explorer with a...

    The user manual says that an iPhone can be paired to use CarPlay over Bluetooth in a '18 Crosstrek Limited. However, I cannot seem to to do. Does anyone have any insight into this? I can't find a definitive answer anywhere.

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Hi everyone! I have a 2017 crosstrek limited with the 7inch starlink audio system. I noticed that when playing a song on Spotify through Bluetooth, the title of the song and album does not scroll (as in, if the song is too long, you can't read the end part of it). On Sirius XM, there is an arrow...

    No changes to anything that I'm aware of. System has worked fine with current phone about 2 years). Suddenly my "friend" stopped prompting me. This means eyes OFF the road to deal with Commands. I expect some setting got changed. Ideas, please!:)
  12. Bluetooth Issues, Anyone?

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    For upfront context, I drive a 2014 Crosstrek Premium and the device I'm connecting with is an iPhone 5s running iOS 9.3.2. When playing music from my iPhone (via Spotify), the audio has always been "skippy" if the phone is to close to the console. So I've kept it at a distance ever since (it...

    Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone has had any problems with the Bluetooth module on the XV. I have a 2014 Premium and I feel like it's REALLY susceptible to interference and losing the Bluetooth connection in poor signal areas. Example- when I had my 2013 Civic, there were always these...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Last week, we connected just fine. I do get complaints that people can't hear me any more on my speaker phone, so I hardly use it, but I do like to listen to my music or books on tape. Monday morning, first thing, it won't stay connected. It connects and disconnects about every 2 minutes...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Since updating my Nexus 5 to Android 5.0 (lollipop) I've had an issue with Bluetooth and Nav head unit. From time to time, audio will cut out while playing back a track.

  18. Spotify, Pandora, etc...

    Interior, Audio, and HVAC
    Does anyone have experience using these apps in their XV? I'm most curious about iOS, but other Mobile platforms would also be interesting to know. I assume streaming music over bluetooth is likely not going to work, but I wonder what type of functionality these types of apps might have over...
