#287 of 390 Subaru Tribeca B9 2006 Touchscreen
Feb 14, 2009 (3:35 pm)
My touchscreen stopped working today. Sits on the warning message waiting for me to click agree. I push and nothing. I've change the fuse and unplugged the unit, same thing. Does anyone have any idea how to fix, or a way around it? I read through the messages and it looks like there is no way to bypass the warning, I'm wondering if there is another way to accept other then the touchscreen. I could use 99% of the functionality if I could see the screens, I never put in addresses, mainly look at the map, gas mileage, etc. I'm guessing the GPS unit itself is fine, just the touchscreen is broken, any idea on cost to replace or if there is a non OEM version I could use to save $? Does anyone know if this part is easy to replace, if it is standard on non GPS b9's or if it's part of the GPS (Kenwood)

It may be a longshot, but try re-booting. i.e. pulling the power for a minute. Might be most easily done by disconnecting the battery cable.

I want to do the DVD NAV hack but I am not confident in doing it. Did you happen to make a walk trough with pictures? Anyone in the upstate NY area that has done this modification and would be willing to help me do it?

Ok so all I have to do for the DVD hack is cut the grey wire, extend it further and ground it to one of the screws?

Yes just like I posted. cut about 2 " from the connector. make sure you use something about as thick as the wire they used. and connect to one of the 4 screws used to mount the unit to the dash (as per the posting)
this will enable the VIDEO to be viewed on front screen while moving. NOT The Navigation Entry that is a different hack.

Hi Cluelesspa and or anyone who has done the mod they provided.
Can you use the voice commands with the MIC to get through the initial warning screen, basically say 'enter' or ok?

Last dumb question: Which end am I going to ground? The end that is left from the connector or the end that I assume goes somewhere in the dash?

umm this part:
one will be 16 wires (some not connected).. one will be smaller plug. anyway look for the ONLY solid grey wire (should be on the larger plug). Pin 13 of 16, I think... carefully strip back the black tape holding the bundle together and get back about 2 or 3 in from the end connector and CUT the wire completely.
the part going to the connect (plugging into the NAV screen)... splice or connect a 4 inch wire of the same or larger size to the 3 inches left.
Note the step above this cut back about 2 or 3 inches
then wrap the splice with electrical tape and retape the bundle. now reinstall the screen (feeding the new 4 in wire around the side of the unit. screw back in and attach the wire to one of the screws so the wire is in contact with the bracket (which is contact with the NAV case) which is Grounded ... there by grounding the grey wire (tricking the unit into thinking the e-brake is applied)...
#296 of 390 Re: Cluelesspa [CarShea] about MIC ackn OK screen

haven't tried it as my button to activate the voice command is right next to the screen so not a big issue to hit the screen versus the mic button.
But I am almost 100% positive there is no "OK" voice command.
