    Bluetooth works fine for placing calls, listening to music, etc., but whenever I talk to someone they always say the background noise is unbearable - even when not driving and using bluetooth calls. Any kind of driving (street/suburbs, freeway) with windows up, air conditioner/fan on low (or...
  2. General Troubleshooting and Technical Help
    Hi, Hope all is well. My 2012 Forester 2.5X Premium with the OEM Headunit recently started skipping/stuttering while streaming music via bluetooth. The stuttering can be sporadic. Has anyone encountered this before? Does anyone know of a potential fix? I tried the following but the issue...

    I noticed something happening with my friend's '21 Sport. We both have the stock 6.5" head unit and when calling via Bluetooth the road noise makes it nearly impossible to hear her. Her phone (Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra) is mounted just above the dash and if she switches to speakerphone instead...

    I would like to replace my stock radio with one with aux(soldered to the stock radio?) or Bluetooth or both. I am worried about buying a smart radio that doesn't fit the Centre console. So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey guys- I have a work phone and personal phone, both iphones. I want to be set up so I can use my either my work or personal as CarPlay and other as bluetooth/usb so I can still take calls or play audio from the other phone without swapping anything. General scenario is I want CarPlay my...

    My 2015 2.5i has the notorious bluetooth connection issues, and I'm planning to replace the head unit, but I'm really not stoked on the prospect of needing to wire in an adapter to keep the steering wheel controls. If I'm understanding correctly, the post-facelift (2016+) models have different...

    I replaced the HU in my 2013 Forester with a Sony XAV-AX000 and ordered the Metra Axxess AXSWC SWC interface. Got it all wired up and configured (both automatically and manually) and only have partial working buttons. All the stereo (Volume, Source and Track) buttons works on whether...

    Looked in my Bluetooth preferences after updating to iOS 15 yesterday and saw a new Bluetooth "Device" that was never there before - "Subaru BT". Clicked on the little information icon and saw an option to Sync Contacts. This has been missing for me and many others. In the past I was asked if I...

    Howdy, apologies in advance if this isn't posted in the correct discussion section. I have a 2016 2.0 XT Premium with the non-navigational head unit. I've run into a problem while being connected to my iPhone via Bluetooth where my songs or podcasts will randomly skip. Is there a way to remedy...

    I have had an issue with making bluetooth calls ever since I bought my 2016 Forester 2 years ago. I found several suggestions for fixes but none of them worked. It's time for me to get a new phone and I figured I might as well try to find something that wouldn't give me agita. I'm pretty...

    We've had our 2015 Forrester for a few years and love it. The biggest pain is the radio. Can the stock radio pair with more than one Bluetooth phone at a time? After pairing with my wife's phone we get a Memory Full notification when we try to add my phone to the system. Do I need to factory...
