Unhappy Bluetooth interface on 2019 Forester big fail

I have found the Android Auto interface to be a nearly useless mess especially for music. You cannot access your music library! Only playlists and recents/queue.
So I have fallen back to the Subaru bluetooth interface, however it does not work well either. I have tried two modern phones (lg, moto) and the symptoms are similar:
- Mostly cannot browse music library (icon is greyed out)
- If you can browse the library (by song, artist, album) when you finally select a tune etc, you get "no results available"
- The track controls often do no work (next track, etc.)
- A song playlist of length 1 often shows on screen with no info sometimes shows on car display, playing music from phone, but buttons are inoperative.

Anyone experiencing similar problems? Is there a new firmware patch for the head unit?
