Ratings and Reviews
Seems may eventually work but...not now.
2 stars because the app looks ok and because I love our Subarus but really should be 1 for lack of functionality.
First, when asked for my VIN to find my account, app would absolutely not allow me to paste my VIN from my note keeping app. So I had to switch back and forth to type 17 digits into the lookup tool. And, no, “security” is not a reason, it’s just bad UI design, period.
Oh, not only can you not paste into the app, you can’t copy from the app, as in I tried to copy a dealership address to look up driving directions and, yeah, app would absolutely not allow me to copy the address. Just bad.
Then I tried to schedule one of the ten or so appointments for the services I chose from the list of morning and afternoon choices: “oops, something went wrong, call to schedule your service or cancel”, 10 + offered appointment slots, same error each time. So, I finally pressed the “call“ button and the app connected me to the voicemail of the dealership warranty manager. Really?
I sure hope I can get my service done though. I left a message, I think they’ll call back. I’ll let you know.
The App suddenly stopped working and all remote services have ceased to respond. I called Starlink like the failure prompt directs. They couldn’t find a problem and told me to take the car in for service. I made an appointment for the following day. I drove the hour and a half to my dealer. The car checked out fine. I called Starlink again and was told they’d call me back. I drove the hour and a half back home. I was called by the folks at Subaru who are the contact people who interface between Subaru engineers and the customer. I explained that I have shut down my phone multiple times, reinstalled the apps several times and updated the car’s software all to no avail. I was told they would have an IT person look into it “in a couple days” and that he’d call back in a day of two. 🤯
So today I got that follow up call and was told it’ll be a few more days...not counting the weekends “because they don’t work weekends”. 🤯🤬🤯
I paid for this service. The remote features are a huge selling point on this vehicle (which is only a couple months old) and to be so lackadaisical about this is totally shocking to me. I really thought highly of Subaru and my purchase experience. I raved about it online to friends and family. Now I feel like the high end service may just be during the sale of the vehicle.
I think I may have made a mistake in purchasing this car. ☹️

Good, not great
The app offers some good features, but is not as comprehensive as other vehicle companion apps I have used. That being said, the subscription fee for the remote features in this app is lower than the other vehicle companion apps I have used. The remote start and destinations have worked fine for me thus far but, like others, I would also like more options for the remote start duration. I would also like if the status of the cars locks were easily visible or, even better, that the app would send you a notification that your car is unlocked if it remains in that state for a certain amount of time. The tire pressure data has never populated for me, but that’s not a huge deal. Overall, a decent app but with definite opportunities for improvement.
