satellite navigation mapping updates

You don't have to wait until your next trip to your Retailer to update your Subaru’s built-in maps. Save time and money by doing it yourself.

Simply select your Subaru model and year from the list below and follow the prompts to purchase your built-in map update.

Depending on the model year of your vehicle, you may be able to purchase and download your map update from your home and install the update to your vehicle directly. However if you are unsure of this process and would like some advice on how to do this, your local Subaru Dealership can assist with this process.

Key updates to your maps may include enhanced navigation features for more accurate guidance, for safer travel and for overall convenience. This may include updates to street names, new roundabouts, turn restrictions in your areas, one-way roads, lane guidance, junction views and points of interest.

The benefits of keeping your maps up to date extend to your back pocket as well, helping with fuel-efficient routes, less wear and tear on your Subaru and reducing your overall CO2 emissions.
