Subaru STARLINK Connected Services

SUBARU STARLINK in-vehicle technology brings both entertainment and safety features to your vehicle.

Subaru Starlink

As technology advances, our world becomes ever more interconnected. This carries over to our cars as well. Subaru Starlink helps your smartphone connect with Subaru to ensure that you are always connected with the world. Subaru Starlink offers a variety of services, all of which help make for a better driving experience. Subaru Starlink helps you get the most out of your new Subaru. It can be found in any of our latest new Subaru vehicles.

If your vehicle is equipped with Subaru Starlink, you can download the Subaru Starlink app for your Android or iOS device. Subaru Starlink helps you stay connected, even when you are driving. If you get a text, Subaru Starlink will display it on the infotainment screen, and will read it aloud so you can keep your eyes on the road. When you want to listen to your favorite music on the go, Subaru Starlink can help. Pairing your phone with Subaru Starlink lets you use apps like Pandora or Aha Radio from the comfort of your own vehicle.  The convenience isn't just on the road either; it can help you find your car, by beeping the horn and flashing the headlights.

Subaru Starlink can help keep you safe in your vehicle too. Subaru Starlink will monitor the critical systems of your vehicle, and will send you a monthly report about how everything is doing. If you ever get in an accident, and your airbag deploys, Subaru Starlink has your back. It will automatically connect you to a Subaru advisor, who will work with you, confirm your location, and arrange for assistance.

At Holmgren Subaru, we have some of the finest Subaru vehicles around. No one knows Subaru better than we do. If you're in Hartford, Middletown, New London or Norwich, and you have any questions about Subaru Starlink, we'd be happy to help. Just give us a call at (888) 710-3132 or come visit us here in North Franklin, CT, and we will answer any questions you may have.
