Default 2015 Impreza 5 Dr Audio Update?

I am still on the stock version from when I got my car 3 years ago. It is the 2015 Impreza Sport Premium 5dr. No navigation on mine.

Never been able to update and its super crappy. I put the picture of what I have. Been looking for years and looks like now there have been an update but the download links are now gone.

Any way to still get this done?

First off - greetings to all of you. I hope I'm a useful/helpful contributor to this site.

Regarding cromo8's question ... I have a similar one.

I purchased my 2014 5-door Limited about a year ago. It came with the Clarion(?) head unit (model number on bottom-right of face plate is CM621UB). At the time, I was using a basic HTC smartphone that I paired to the stereo. It would reconnect automatically each time I got in the car, and using it to make hands-free phone calls was great (crystal clear sound). Fast-forward 6 months. I had to upgrade my phone, this time to a Samsung Galaxy J3. I was able to pair this new phone to the car stereo, but it will not automatically reconnect. I have to manually connect it each time I get in the car. What a PITB! And worse, when using the system to make phone calls, the sound is very garbled.

I'm wondering if there's an update available for this radio that might correct these issues. I was able to pull the current version number from the radio:

M 298502V011

Did a few Google searches. Found some threads that mentioned a Subaru website that had firmware updates. But those links seem to be dead.

Can my stereo still be updated? And, if so, would it even fix the problems I'm having?

Thank you so much in advance.

Yes it can be updated but Subaru locked the downloads behind passwords, so someone has to send you the files.

Does anyone have updated firmware files for the 2015 nav system for STi?

Sounds like the same issue I had when I went back to my stock HU in my 15 WRX. Try going deleting your phone and adding it using the voice commands on the steering wheel instead of the Buttons on the HU. Worked for me without an update and my phone connects every time now.

Edit: sorry, should have clarified. I was responding to K9_Taxi
