Cool Infotainment All Fixed - Just Updated!

There are 3 variants for each 2017 Impreza model. Got it done this morning
first thing. It appears to fix everything we've seen here!

Just got back from the dealership after 1 hour to get the Infotainment updated.
All done and they did not believe me at first that there was an update as it was
news to them. But they found it and it updated OK and seems better. I was the first
to get it done there. They were curious how I knew about STIS!

"How do you know there is an update????" But there were all cool about it.

I did notice right away that when I went to the volume settings after starting my
fixed car, the Phone volume - which had been going back to 20 every time -
was at 30 where I had set before it kept resetting! So it was there all along.
I'm optimistic. Station presets will need to be redone, but will hopefully stay
this time. But nav and may other settings appeared to stay put.

Here is the PDF for TSB 15-211-17 - sorry I had to scan from what the dealer printed.
The new version image is rotated. But you can see the updated version number.

If you feel brave, you can pay for the update and download from STIS and do it yourself.
It won't come over Wifi - as I had said - it's too complex to do that way.

Google "impreza audio update"

Google "impreza audio update" to find and download the update files from the Subaru site. No account needed!

Base is for the 6.5" system,
Mid is for the 8" NO Nav,
High is for the 8" WITH Nav.

Download and read the instructions carefully which are in the original post.
If you install the wrong version on your unit, it could brick it and then
don't expect any love from Subaru.

It's says for the Harman units.

If you do manage to do it yourself and have success, please let us know.
As I stated mine was done at the dealership. Even having a few of the
annoying quirks gone is a great thing. Seems very stable and working
better.

The infotainment system was made by Harman. It's not meant to say that it is only compatible for cars with the HK speaker system.

Oh, this is so exciting. Thank you for posting the PDF! I'm so happy they've addressed items #1-3 below! I'm probably going to try installing it myself tonight so I can skip a trip to the dealer.

For those who don't want to open it, and for forum search-ability:
TSB 15-211-17R

Additional symptoms addressed by this update:
1. Radio station presets disappear (touch screen buttons return to "Initializing").
2. STARLINK "Telematics Service in Progress" screen freezes.
3. Apple Car Play / Android Auto function does not operate ("No Device Connected").
4. The complete guidance route can be displayed.
5. A longitude and Latitude search feature has been added.
6. A "Beep" notification feature has been added for driving time and rest periods.


Available Version ID should be Rel2.17.22.20 - the same for all three levels of head unit.
USB Drive should be >=16GB, formatted as NTFS
Should take less than 10 minutes to complete.

Does anybody know if the
Code:
F10 Gracenote Media Database Update 1_1_17 (TSB 15-208-17)
is current ? I noticed issues with the system not detecting media from USB and/or displaying wrong artist/album name/image ?

Well, just went through all of the procedure in the PDF. Used a 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive formatted to NTFS. Worked like a charm! It is kind of annoying that you have to leave the car idling, but, hey, definitely less fuel than if I were to drive to the dealer!
Fingers crossed that Android Auto now works 100% of the time and I never see that Telematics Service in Progress screen again.
