This is an annoying and embarrassing issue with the nav system in my 2019 Forester Touring.

Start the car.
Press the Map button.
Map shows where I am on the screen.
Press the voice button on the steering wheel.
Say "find the nearest restaurant". (or anything similar)
Nav responds, "Voice destination search is not available in this country."
WHAT!?!?

If I wait 5-10 minutes and search again, voice search works just fine.
It seems like it takes 5-10 minutes after starting the car for the nav system to realize where I am and allow voice searching.
This makes no sense to me since the map display clearly shows my location right away.
What if I had an emergency and needed to find a hospital right away? Sit there and idle for 5-10 minutes before it works?

Is this how the nav system works, or do I have an issue with my unit?
