2015-16 Legacy/Outback Screen to Low for Navigation?

Hi,

I am new to these forums. I recently purchased a 2016 Legacy without navigation. People's unhappiness with the Starlink system and replacing it with an aftermarket head unit are well covered on these forums. I have read over many of them and I am definitely considering this option. Currently I am using my phone with Google maps on a dash mount cradle and this was my setup on my previous car. Many manufacturers seem to be following this design, placing the infotainment screen at the dashboard level, where it looks like a protruding tablet. This does seem to be a more logical orientation. So I am wondering for those of you who have navigation or added it aftermarket, do you find the screen to be to low? I primarily use Android Auto on my phone, so the in dash screen has pretty much become useless to me. Thanks!

I mostly rely on audio prompts, I'll only look at the screen if I'm confused or to know when the next direction should come. Otherwise the screen placement is not too much of a concern to me.

Thanks. I agree about using the audio directions primarily. I'm also thinking it's basically a habit at this point. I'm just so used to the phone on the mount. I am also from Long Island so you know what it's like driving around here.
