I have the 14 premium trek. I been having problems with my new phone and the bluetooth. My old samsung galaxy s5 would connect everytime no problem. But my new HTC one m9 won't even connect by going into the bluetooth options on both car and phone to try to pair them. Anyone else have this problem or a remedy for it? Thanks.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that have tried the same phone on 3 other vehicles and theres zero issues with connectivity between them all. For some reason its just my crosstrek :(

I had similar problems when I switched to Android Nexus 5 in my 2013 Premium Crosstrek. I now use this android app which solved most of the problem. You will need to play around with the settings.
Bluetooth Auto Connect.
If that one does not work; try others that are similar.

Try setting the code to 0000 instead of 1234 on the head unit. Then pair it using the voice commands from the steering wheel. That's what worked for my Note 4, found it buried on Android Central.

I will dig up this old thread because I just purchased my car. My phone (Verizon Droid Turbo) wouldn't connect either. It keeps saying Scanning or something like that. Then it fails after about 30 seconds.

I found it strange that any manufacturer would be using either of the default BT codes. Most systems provide a random number to input, but I will chalk this up to mine being a preowned (read used) 2013 model year.

applezz,
I assume you are saying to change the code on the car system? If so, I will read up on how to do that with this interface.

As far as I know the Crosstrek radio Bluetooth will only hold 1 device in memory. Being a used car there may already be the previous owners paired device in memory.
Delete that device ( if it is there). Then carefully go through the procedure for pairing (adding) a new device (your phone) to your car Bluetooth. I used the car default code 1234 on mine.
Let us know the results.

The service guy tried several things to make this work after finding out it wouldn't work with his phone either. He verified that there was no paired device. He tried changing the PIN, but didn't try 0000. He disconnected the battery for a bit to attempt to reset the system.

We tried changing the code to 0000 in the Bluetooth audio device section. BTW, I have the screen/display, but not the nav system. That was the only time the phone then tried to pair and offered a PIN prompt. While it did pair as an audio device and successfully made a phone call, the next time I started the car (after I left) the phone was not connected. Then I did the phone pairing and that stayed in the system.

Bluetooth is an open standard and really should be easy to provide a fix (easier solution) for the customers, if the manufacturer spends a little time/money on the problem. I will also note that the service guy did mention that he did not know of any updates to the radio/Bluetooth system. I do hope Subaru figures out that they should support enhancements of existing systems.

Either way, it works now but should never be this difficult to do IMO.

Thanks to you guys for the help!!

I have a similar problem with my 13. I have to manually connect the phone every time I get in the car. I have to click into the BT settings and select the phone (the only phone in the system)
its a pain because I always forget to connect it before I start driving and once you are rolling the screen is locked out so I have to pull over to pair the phone.
I have tried all of the suggestions in this thread and I can not get it to automatically connect.
anyone figured this out? if not, anyone know how to defeat the screen lock out when moving?
thanks.

No clue how to defeat the lockout. But, I did just go through this again a couple weeks ago when I got my phone. Clicked all the right buttons to connect my phone. But it wouldn't automatically connect. Then I remembered that you have to pair the device using the voice prompts in order for it to connect automatically for some strange reason. Once I connected using voice prompts, it connects automatically every time.
