HI,
Is there a way to see, via the screen, the maps on either Google Maps or Waze that are on my phone? I just got my first Subaru - a 2020 Forester without navigation. Thank you.

Hi there, if ur forester have a starlink multimedia, it comes with apple carplay and android auto. Connect your phone with a cable to the usb outlet underneath the unit in that small cubby. You can use waze, apple maps and google maps.

Goodluck!

I would also add that if you're going to use Android Auto, make sure the cable (look at the USB connector the plastic piece should be blue or purple). Apple Auto should be ok with an apple cable.

I have a 2020 also and as soon as I connect my phone, android, Android Auto is activated (the icon becomes bright) and I can see the maps immediately. It does not work via bluetooth for some reason. Navigation will work through voice commands by toughing the icon on the screen and telling it the address. Very pleased with it as the subscription costs for factory navs are usually high.

Android Auto/CarPlay does not work on by. It has to be wired(on foresters)
