'18 and '19 Crosstrek Limiteds
OAK hasn't had any issues with her iPhone 8 Plus but she hasn't installed the latest iOS yet (she tends to wait a while and see if there are any major issues). If this continues to work for you I'll add it to the intro post.How to properly un-pair your iPhone and re-pair it with 3.0 and 3.1 HU
After 2 weeks of issues with my iPhone XR being unable to accept commands issued to it following a long press of the steering wheel phone button, I finally figured how to properly un-pair and re-pair my phone from the HU. I've been plagued this problem before in my 2019 Crosstrek Limited and although it works perfectly when connected via cable for Carplay, that is not as convenient to use when I just hop in the car to head 2 miles away to my office. I had restarted the HU multiple times with a >10 second press of the volume knob, opened and closed doors, "forgot" the Bluetooth device on my phone, etc., all to no avail. Today, to determine if the problem was my phone or the HU, I paired my wife's iPhone XR to my HU and it worked perfectly. We have the same iOS version (most recent) and all the settings were the same, so the problem was most likely my phone. What I finally did was the following:
Hope this helps out someone.
- Delete the phone from the device list in the HU and then re-start the HU with a greater than 10 second push on the volume button, waiting until the Starlink splash screen appears before you release the button.
- "Forget" the HU in your BT device list on the iPhone
- Restart the phone. This was the trick. I had not been restarting my phone after deleting the HU BT device. Clearly some setting was being left behind that only got cleared when the phone was re-booted after deleting the HU from the iPhone BT device list.
