What is Subaru STARLINK®?

SUBARU STARLINK® is the high-tech answer Subaru came up with to the growing consumer demand for a more technologically integrated approach to driving.

With multiple connected features operated through one integrated system, Suburu STARLINK® offers drivers a matchless experience on the road. With STARLINK®, you can connect your mobile devices to your vehicle to extend your vehicle safety and convenience in new, unique ways. Subaru STARLINK® offers an industry-leading approach to connected vehicle technologies that give drivers extensive control and feeds valuable information to the pilot in ways that are uncommon outside of luxury-class vehicles.

STARLINK® is more than just a smartphone-enabled platform, however. This system uses advanced safety technologies that work even without a connected device. Over a dozen features come together to offer both safety and comfort while driving your Subaru vehicle.

Multimedia Features

Subaru STARLINK® offers several multimedia features that are now standard in many new Subaru vehicles. You can connect your Android® or Apple® smartphone via Bluetooth® to take full advantage of the following features:

  • Apple CarPlay® (iOS devices only)
  • Android Auto (Android devices only)
  • Voice-activated phone calls
  • Smart home control through Subaru EVEConnect
  • Entertainment app integration, including Pandora and iHeartRadio
  • Travel assistance through Yelp
  • Location sharing with Glympse®

STARLINK® also features multimedia technology that doesn’t require a connected device. For example, you can enjoy precise navigation through TomTom or Magellan Navi®, or enjoy digital AM and FM through HD Radio®.

Your passengers will also enjoy the available Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows you to securely share your mobile connection with everyone in your vehicle.

Safety and Security

Subaru STARLINK® is about more than just entertainment and navigation. You’ll find STARLINK® combines a suite of safety and security features that offer a high level of protection on the road. When you purchase a STARLINK-enabled vehicle, you’ll also have access to:

  • Automatic Collision Notification
  • Enhanced Roadside Assistance
  • Stolen Vehicle Recovery
  • Remote services (such as Remote Engine Start with Climate Control)
  • Diagnostic Alerts

Importantly, you can use the MySubaru.com website or the MySubaru app to check the status of your vehicle and receive notifications about your vehicle’s status anytime, anywhere. This can be an essential feature for parents with teen drivers, as the MySubaru app or website can send you curfew alerts and speed limit alerts.

You can also draw a boundary on a map to indicate areas where your vehicle should not leave or enter. And should your vehicle get stolen, Subaru vehicles equipped with STARLINK® offer a vehicle immobilizing feature to make sure no one can run off with your vehicle.

How Do I Start Using STARLINK®’s Connected Apps?

It’s easy to get STARLINK® up and running. After you purchase a qualified Subaru vehicle, simple download the STARLINK app from either the Apple App Store or Google Play store. Then, connect your device to STARLINK® through either Bluetooth® or a USB cable. Setup is fast, and your vehicle can store multiple connected devices for those who share a vehicle among different drivers.
