2016 Forester Premium. It seems the microphone has stopped working - I can hear those I called, but they can't hear me. System worked great for 3+ years, any thoughts on the problem?

I have noticed the same issue recently. On bluetooth calls no one can hear me, 2016 XT. I am hesitant to ask a dealer to look into it as it will likely take loads of time and $$$ to remedy

I’ve paired 3 different phones and all have the same issue. Called dealer service writer and he said bring it in for a look see. Also mentioned perhaps the microphone switch was turned off or way down. I’ll go see what they say but not paying $100 diagnostic fee to be told I need a new head unit. Would buy an aftermarket unit or mount an iPad there. Never used the starlink, just music, Bluetooth cell, and back up camera.
$500 for crutchfield unit or iPad. I’ve read Ipad also takes data from obd port and gives readings on display too.
Will post response after dealer visit
