I have a Subaru 2019 Outback that came with three year complimentary map updates. I received notification the complimentary subscription was expiring but no information on how to take out a subscription. I was using a USB drive for updating the vehicle built-in system. I called On-Star, Subaru and also went to a local Subaru Dealership and no one knew how to pay for a subscription. Anyone have info on the process for purchasing a subscription for a vehicle on-board navigation system?

    Download the new maps for your Subaru navigation system

    Go to the site https://subaru-maps.com
    Download the installer (for Windows or for OS)
    Double click on the "Map Downloader" icon that appears on the PC then choose the update to download on a 32 GB USB key
    Switch on the ignition, then install the USB key thus prepared on the USB port of the vehicle console, and the update will start automatically

    This does not solve the question I originally posted. I am well aware how to do the map updates when a subscription is active. I have done it for every map update that has occurred since 2019. My original question is how to purchase a continuing subscription so maps can continue to be downloaded. The solution posted by Willy 875 works when a subscription is active. My question is how to purchase a subscription renewal so maps can be downloaded from https://Subaru-maps.com.
