SUBARU FORESTER TECHNOLOGY Q & A:

Does the Forester have a Wi-Fi Hotspot?


The 2019 Forester does come equipped with Wi-Fi Hotspot tech capabilities.  Owners would need to set it up and purchase a data plan to activate the feature.  Subaru teamed up with AT&T as a plan provider.

The overhead console buttons allow you to connect to a Subaru STARLINK customer care advisor.  The red SOS button gets you a live advisor for emergency assistance.  The blue button is for roadside assistance.


What's the difference between the STARLINK app and the MySubaru app?


The STARLINK app is needed to take advantage of the full capability of the multimedia content from your mobile device.  It pushes content like music and weather to your vehicle for use while driving.  The MySubaru app is used for the STARLINK remote safety and security services like locking or unlocking, and remote start.


Does the 2019 Subaru Forester Come with Remote Start?


Forester doesn't include a traditional remote starter as a standard feature but you can pay to have it installed.  STARLINK can take the place of a traditional remote start and is an affordable and even more interactive option.  With STARLINK you can remote start your vehicle via the MySubaru app from virtually anywhere you have mobile reception.  It also allows you to manage features like temperature controls, heated seats, and locking or unlocking doors.  Once you've experienced it you'll never go back to the old school remote start.  The older technology can only be used within a certain range and you need to remember to adjust your temperature or defrosters before you exit your vehicle.
