What is Subaru STARLINK?

The SUBARU STARLINK In-Vehicle Technology package is a relative newcomer to the world of in-car technology and has a lot to offer our customers. STARLINK has been designed to provide Subaru drivers with complete hands-free connectivity to a wide range of features and built-in safety services. Starting with the 2016 model year, select Subaru models will be equipped with 4G LTE cellular connectivity via the AT&T network offering nationwide connectivity.

STARLINK will also provide Subaru owners with access to a number of features offered via SiriusXM Connected Vehicle Services. These include automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle location and recovery, monthly vehicle health reports, and the ability to lock and unlock your vehicle using your smart phone.

The new STARLINK system has been designed to connect to virtually any iOS or Android powered device. This connection is made via Bluetooth and allows you to access a wide range of apps. This includes the MYSUBARU app that gives access to iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, and Stitcher Radio. Not only will you have access to streaming music, but also a number of other services such as: news, weather, and your calendar. 


STARLINK has been designed to use the 7-inch screen to help you get where you are going via a built in voice activated GPS navigation system. With this system you simply tell it the address of your destination and a map with step-by step driving instructions will be displayed on the screen. The system also offers vocal step-by-step instructions to ensure you never have to take your eyes off the wheel while driving.
