    Car radio firmware upgrade

    I have a 2013 wrx and I wonder if we can upgrade the car radio firmware. You probably see me coming, I've switched to iPhone 6 which uses the lastest Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Since then, once paired, it will never connect automatically to the car anymore. Same problem on two regular Impreza, also tested on a 2013 and another 2014 model. Numerous articles online suggest a firmware upgrade from Subaru and I've already replaced my phone once, so probably the car has the problem.

    Thank you all

    There is a two step Bluetooth pairing process.
    It's in the manual, or you can go to YouTube.
    I had a similar issues last time I changed phones.
    Hope that woks, let me know.

    Thanks mate! It worked. Turns out if you do not have the nav system, you have to pair your phone with voice control and steering wheel buttons only, not manually with radio controls. Kind of odd that neither Apple not Subaru customer support does not know this, thank god I have these forums.
