Yeah, you can only select "HOME" if you want to navigate while the car is moving.If I didn't get such a good deal on my '10 with nav, I would say it's not worth it compared to aftermarket built-in nav units but here's a few things the subarru nav does that you didn't know:
View mpg, average mpg, acceleration for trip A or B
Change vehicle settings that you can only do at the dealer otherwise (refer to where your manual says 'if you have a genuine subaru nav....')
Range (to empty)
Adjust graphic eq settings
See album and song titles for regular cd's (is there data on music cd's)
And probably more stuff but ive only messed with it for a few hours on short trips so.
Now I just have to figure out what wire defeats the parking sensor so we can use the damn thing while moving. Stupid!
Yeah, definately go aftermarket. I bought a TomTom gps unit for $89.99 on sale at Visions. The mark-up from Subaru Canada doesn't surprise me one bit. Just compare what us Canadians are paying for the Forester compared to the Americans:crazy:. Highway robbery as it's been for a few years now:Banane28:. End of rant. Enjoy the new Fozzy:Banane35:.My new Forester arrived. Did not go with the OEM GPS, just the plan old system that comes with the car/suv. Very happy with the vehicle. Now I get to go shopping for a new HU. Going to take my time. Local dealer wanted to sell me the Sportech GPS in liu of the standard GPS unit, for the same cost of $2000. Even in Canada, Futureshop had the same unit on sale for $399 ($100 off). Not bad profit margins.
