  1. ('19+) 2020 - Starlink - no WiFi option?

    Problems, Maintenance, and Warranty
    Ok. But tell him/her your wife is unhappy & take it from there. They (most of the time) need to keep their job.
  2. Does the 2020 Forester have a Navigation system?

    Forester Shopping
    Subaru's Tomtom nav is not that bad. Not great, but not bad. Also some times Android Auto seems to malfunction, so having a backup built-in nav is a good idea. In this ever-changing technological world, nothing is ever perfect. You can't always get what you want. But if you try some time, you...
  3. Does the 2020 Forester have a Navigation system?

    Forester Shopping
    Yes they do have Tom Tom in their consoles. I've not used it that much as I am used to using Google Maps with Android Auto, but Tom Tom navigation is there and it works.
  4. EyeSight Camera Options

    Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    I'd very much like a front camera at the same level above ground as the rear camera that optionally -- you could disable if you didn't want it -- would come on when you're moving forward at, say, less than 1 mph. Would really help with parking, especially parallel parking, and when pulling out...
  5. ('19+) 2019 - Updated Media System from 4.18.11.50 to UC.19.12.70

    Interior and Electronics
    Did you have to get the latest upgrade from your dealer before the home WiFi thing would work?
  6. ('19+) 2020 - Adding apps?

    Interior and Electronics
    Just say "OK Google", or press and hold the phone / talk button on the steering wheel and make your request. No need for a head unit app.
  7. 2019 Touring Feature?

    Forester Shopping
    Yes. My sister has a 2016 or 2017 Outback, I can't remember, but the difference in both the interior and the drive feel is night and day between that and the 2019 Forester Touring in my opinion.
  8. 2019 Touring Feature?

    Forester Shopping
    It's all still there, you can cycle through the various screens by pressing a button, I think it's the Info button but I'm not there right now so I'm not a hundred percent sure. The facial recognition thing is very cool. The 2019 Forester Touring is a great car!
  9. ('19+) 2019 - Front facing camera?

    Interior and Electronics
    Wow, wish we had had that here! Down Under is on top! :-)
  10. ('19+) 2019 - Front facing camera?

    Interior and Electronics
    I would love a grill camera that could kick off on demand or say when one is going 1 mph or less, it would really help with parallel parking...
  11. ('19+) 2019 - Rear power lift gate won't open (merged thread) - SOLVED!

    Interior and Electronics
    To all you new folks just coming across this problem, make sure you read the post by forester022519 on March 20th in this thread. The power liftgate problem should not be an issue requiring an emergency visit to the dealer if you're armed with his great advice. Print out his post and keep a...
  12. 2019 Subaru Forester

    Forester Shopping
    I watched his video on the luxury Model X too. Yes, I know they're a good bit more than double the cost of a fully loaded 2019 Touring, but I'm curious as to whether any current 2019 Touring owners have had extensive experience with the Tesla Model X, and if so, what their thoughts are...
  13. ('19+) Simple steps to add application ????

    Interior and Electronics
    Use Android Auto or Apple Carplay -- based on which Smartphone you have I use Android Auto. When my phone is plugged into the car's USB (it doesn't work over Bluetooth alone), it shows on the 8" screen and I can choose between Google maps or Waze for Navigation.
  14. Negotiating for used '18 XT

    Forester Shopping
    @Terr Just 1 opinion, for that price you were quoted, take a look at the 2019 Touring. Test drive it, compare to the XT you're considering.
  15. ('19+) 2019 - Front Parking Sensors - can they be added?

    Driver-Assist Technology and EyeSight
    @gti337 I agree. Totally loving this car. The best. Superb vision & sensors everywhere. Eyesight! But there's one blind spot: the lower front. It needs a camera down there that acts just like the Reverse camera, except that would only kick in when you're in Drive going say 1 mph or less.
  16. 2019 Subaru Forester

    Forester Shopping
    That might be related to overall general safety. Whould we want a car immobilized that was driving through a busy intersection?
  17. 2019 Subaru Forester

    Forester Shopping
    I think it makes sense why they did this. Think argument with a spouse, spontaneous hot-headedness, etc. ;-) You have "Locate Vehicle", provide that info to the cops when you call and update as necessary.
  18. ('19+) 2019 - 8" Non-Nav Forgets presets? (merged thread) - Updated!

    Interior and Electronics
    Does this new version yet allow you to finally update the head unit yourself over Wi-Fi at home?
  19. ('19+) 2019 - Dashcam with Eyesight?

    Interior and Electronics
    Also, it sure would be nice to have a camera in the lower front outside that would work just like the rear camera except only come active if you're going forward less than say 2 miles an hour. With the Forester's big front ends it's hard to judge how close you are to the car in front of you or...
  20. ('19+) 2019 - Dashcam with Eyesight?

    Interior and Electronics
    Interesting, thanks. Do you have to be a hardware techie kind of a person to be able to put this in yourself or is it pretty easy?
