The Magellan Navi cloud-based navigation app is now available on the 2017 Subaru BRZ multimedia system.

The app works through the Subaru Starlink in-vehicle technology along with customers’ smartphone to deliver up-to-date audio and visual navigation. Owners of the 2017 Subaru BRZ can get access to the new service immediately with a three-year subscription for $29.99.

The 2017 Subaru BRZ offers a 6.2-inch high resolution multi-function touchscreen display that includes AM/FM stereo HD radio, single-disc in-dash CD player and eight speakers. Magellan Navi is housed within the Starlink cloud and will appear on the multimedia screen once customers connect their smartphones and launch the newest version of Subaru’s Starlink app.
