Hi. Just bought a 2015 Forester. My wife has some EMF sensitivities, so want to make sure the Bluetooth is off. This is not the touchscreen version, so I’m having trouble verifying this. Suggestions? Thanks.

@robogamma5 welcome to the board. I know it's splitting hairs, but if it's just EMF you are concerned with, you may be OK leaving the Bluetooth on because it is considered RF, not EMF. High current or high voltage AC or DC flowing through conductors are primary sources of EMF. Bluetooth and other radio transmitters like a cell phone, wifi, TV and Radio station transmitters are the main RF sources. You may find that you have to unplug the Bluetooth module buried in your dash or pull a fuse to turn it off.
