Subaru’s New Entertainment System Has Two iPads For $970

Many automakers try to make immersive and responsive entertainment systems for rear seat passengers. Many fail. Perhaps with this in mind, Subaru has launched its new Starlink Entertainment Anywhere Kit which includes two iPads that promise to work perfectly each and every time.

Joining the two 9.7-inch 32 GB iPad models are two pairs of Harman Kardon Bluetooth headlights and two OtterBox Defender Series cases. The package can be purchased for $970, a figure that’s claimed to represent hundreds of dollars worth of savings versus buying each iPad, pair of headphones, and case separately. For the record, the 9.7 inch 32GB iPad is priced at $329 a pop over at Apple’s official site.

Continue enjoying your movies and games once you reach your destination

All new Subaru customers can purchase the Starlink Entertainment Anywhere Kit but the Japanese marque says it will be particularly useful for the 2019 Ascent which includes an in-vehicle WiFi hotspot. Subaru will soon introduce WiFi hotspots on a selection of other 2019 models, including the Forester.

Perhaps the only thing missing from the package is mounts to fix the iPads to the rear of the front seat headrests.

One more thing. As nice as it might be to head to a local Subaru dealership to only buy the entertainment package, Subaru will restrict it to those purchasing or leasing a vehicle.

    Let’s say your newly purchased car has an accident or you sell it off, can you keep the entertainment stuff?

    Wouldn’t be the first time they were hiring new writers. I remember seeing something similar for weeks before the websites’ layout changed.

    Compared to what others charges for accessories, this deal is actually not bad. iPad at $329 ea, HK BT at ~$100 ea (current sale price of another BT model, MSRP was $250) and OtterBox Defender ~$90 ea. So, you are getting the package for a bit less than going to buy the set separately, unless the included iPad is the 2017 model and not the 2018.
