#372 of 390 2007 Tribeca navigation v1.1 2005-2006

My navi system has gone out. Would installing a newer version solve this problem?

give us some more information for example what version are you using and when you say has gone out what exactly do you mean, whats on the screen? If you have anyone with newer version try it to see if its that before you buy it. But my feeling is that a hardware issue.

The version is listed in the title line: v1.1 2005-2006. The right half of the screen is black. The left half has the cautionary message about not using the system while driving, etc, but the letters are all scrunched together so they are barely legible. If I put the car in reverse the camera will work but there's a large vertical black bar in the middle of the screen. There is no access to the information on the screen, for example, the time of day. No access to the buttons on the dash as far as info (number of miles left for the remaining gas in the tank). I don't know anyone else who has a newer version. In fact, I don't know anyone who owns a Tribeca. Love this car!

#376 of 390 2006 Tribeca Questions
May 20, 2011 (5:59 am)
I'm looking to close a deal on a 2006 Tribeca w/ 78,000 miles with the Nav and DVD player.
Any advice out there on things to ask and look for?
Also, I was wondering, can you turn off the navigation screen or is it always on?
What are the different screen functions of that screen?
Am I looking to have a host of issues in regards to having these options?

Is this private party or are you buying from a dealer? If a dealer, is it a Subaru dealer?
The navigation operates from DVDs, which are probably out of date. If you're buying from a Subaru dealer, I would try to negotiate the most recent DVD update into the deal.
Also, I have heard that the early model Tribeca can have issues with bushings in the front suspension (sway bar? I can't remember for sure). So, be sure to drive it a good distance on varied surfaces to listen for odd sounds, etc.

Check if the Subaru still has the set of wirelless headphones for DVD and remote . New remote costs ~ $70 at dealership.
Check/negotiate the updated version of Navigator DVD. Navigator display
has muliple functions ( radio,map, fuel usage ,etc...) including the possibility to watch movie ( while parking).
Tribeca 2006 has sometimes bushings in the front suspension (sway bar).
It was fixed for my car at 30,000 milesbut it seems to me it coming again at 94,000.
Subaru had a recall for back door holders (while it opened). It only appeares to be a problem during winter time. I never had any problem with a car except these two I mentioned. Try to see if dealer has a good insurance up to 150,000 (?)
