#316 of 390 2009 Subaru Tribeca Navigation problem
Aug 28, 2009 (11:48 am)
I just bought a new Tribeca that came with V3 disks. I live in SE NC, and while it shows the names of most of the roads, it will not find any addresses on secondary roads, and that include the 10 year old development I live in. It will not route me to or from my home. It will not plan a route on secondary roads (those w/o highway numbers). When I check the version info, it shows V1.0 dtd 2007 even though I have the V3 East disk installed and loaded. Subaru and Kenwood have not been of any help. Has anyone had a similar problem?

call subaru headquarters they will be happy to give you version 3.0 for free, my 2008 tribeca had the old one as well, but the dealer should had given you the newer version as well since 3.0 came out in 2008 the time i bought mine.

My wife purchased a 2009 Tribeca and it came with Navigation 3.0. We received the discs new from Kenwood and as such, it is not installed. Does anyone know how to install it. I've put it in the CD player but it does not read. The DVD player does not read it either. Any suggestions???

jsequin: Look under the driver's seat. The navigation DVD player there.

look under the drivers seat, becarefull how you open the door, first remove the safety. Then open the door. I recommend you read the manual before you do anything. Good luck
#321 of 390 GPS in 06 tribeca?
Oct 31, 2009 (9:40 am)
We just got a 2006 Tribeca and there is NO manual for the gps, I've been reading some of the post on this link and it's very helpful. Said that the dvd is under the driver seat, I never would of thought of looking there... Yes, it is, are you suppose to be able to take that out? I didn't want to force it. Could a dvd be inside that? I only got 1 dvd in the case, that was the West and we live in the East, but it is installed, just in case we ever need to re-install.
Is that a memory card or some way that you can program trips in your computer and put it on that gps in the car?
#322 of 390 2009 Tribeca GPS
Oct 31, 2009 (10:27 am)
I have a 2009 Tribeca. It comes as Version 3 with 2 DVD's. The East is in the player. Both the East and the West have identical maps, but POI's differ for their respective coverage areas. The player is located under the seat and has a button for ejection on the unit.
In general this is a poor GPS system compared to modern units like Garmin. It does not route to many areas in NC where I live. When it does a route, it usually only follows numbered highways. As a result, routes are longer if I can find the address. I have taken issue with both Subaru and their GPS hardware/software supplier Kenwood. The only response I got from Subaru was that a new version will be out in 2010. However, they did not commit that it would do any more than add more POI's to what already exits, or that it would work in older systems like mine. As a result, I use a Garmin system that works real well, and I have an expensive back-up camera for my 2009.
#323 of 390 GPS in 06 Tribeca transfer from computer?
Oct 31, 2009 (8:28 pm)
Maybe I asked this question wrong before. I have a garmin hand held gps, that I plan our many trips with on the computer then transfer the data to the gps.
1. Is a way to do this with the gps in the tribeca? If so HOW? What software would you use.
2. Are you suppose to be able to read the dvd that came with the car on your computer? I tried and it said they were IDX files and couldn't open them.

We also just recently bought a 06 Tribeca which I thought only had the West disc, and we live in the East. When I took the car to the dealers today about the gold paint job, I asked how you open that box under the driver seat. The sales manager tried but couldn't figure it out, he had someone come out from service, he showed me, and the East disc was in there.

Update after calling all around, I finally found a manual for the gps at the dealership that had 2 people looking and couldn't find one. Guy from service dept. found one, also I figured out (just guessing) that the manal is #3100 and you can d/l it.
