Subaru Starlink In-Vehicle Technology - What it is and how it works



STARLINK is the Subaru in-vehicle platform that provides hands-free connectivity, entertainment and safety services to vehicle occupants. In select 2016 models arriving later this year, STARLINK will be enhanced with built-in AT&T 4G LTE capability, will deliver features provided by Sirius XM Connected Vehicle Services including stolen vehicle recovery, automatic collision notification, remote vehicle services such as lock/unlock via a smartphone device and monthly vehicle health reports.

Watch this excellent Starlink Technology video overview below:

In the past, Subaru lagged the industry with in-dash technology. The new Starlink system not only raises the bar, it sets the standard for functionality and ease of use by taking cues from mobile technology..

The current system allows users to connect their Android and iOS devices to the infotainment system via Bluetooth and use the STARLINK app to access content such as Aha, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Stitcher Radio, calendar, food, news, weather, and other applications in the car. The system also features an available GPS navigation system with one-shot voice destination activation and a 7" in-dash capacitive touch screen.

 "Particularly impressive is the clean, logical layout of the navigation and infotainment system."

"When it comes to in-dash technology, (Starlink's) multi-touch interface and the features it controls puts the Editors' Choice 2015 Outback 2.5i Limited way ahead of the competition."
- PC Magazine
