Brodit is what you want

Its so I can use it as a SAT NAV, I'm not paying for Mazda Connect to get traffic updates when I can use WAZE for free which is excellent. It really is no ones business why you need a phone mount and you shouldn't feed the trolls. I've always had a problem with saloon-bar-Johnies; despite achieving...

Re: Update 70.00.021 Done Today

Had the 70.00.021 update done today at the dealer Oh dear! Out of date already: 70.00.335C is now current. Anyone wanting to 'tweak' are warned that this update removes root access to the CMU. Presently there seems no way back from it either. "warned that this update removes root access to the CMU....

Re: Android Auto and Car play

Yesterday, driving home, I was able to press the voice button on the steering wheel and say "switch on the coffee". My espresso machine was up to temperature and ready to a pull a shot when I arrived home. I just l-o-v-e Google. It's that kind of connectivity that damns Mazda's and other manufacture...

Re: Android Auto and Car play

Because the software was free to develop and the license to use is free isnt it... Err, not sure what you are saying old mate. The Mazda display uses Opera Browser as its underlying software and according to the Mazda hacking community, the extra software written for the CMU is dire. Are you saying...

Re: Android Auto and Car play

I have the All-In One Tweaks version of Android Auto, (the one that is software only and doesn't need a tax payment to Mazda), and with that, on the HUD, I get turn indications (mainly) together with distance count-downs to a junction. Only it is work in progress - roundabouts do not have any indica...

Android Auto/Apple CarPlay is still a cost option on 2019 CX3’s.
Madness isn't it?

They want to make £350 of easy money fitting a USB hub worth $10 at most. It is price gouging at its very worst.

I was told that the build quality of the China only CX4 was so bad that it was unlikely to be sold anywhere else without massive investment.
You've heard Chinese whispers too?

OK caveat emptor, thanks for the heads-up.

Re: 120BHP engine

I much prefer the knob controls. I've found them easier to use without having to take your eyes off the road to press the buttons and see what the digital display reads. 2019 Mazda 3 you have knobs to turn but you have a digital readout - one knob for each front seat. I found it simple on my test d...
