Re: CarPlay finally

So, all pretty easy. It took about two hours start to finish including the software upgrade time. I slid out the CD unit which then exposes the top side of the USB hub. You can then use something thin to slide between the fascia and the tabs on the top of the hub to depress them. The top edge can th...

Re: CarPlay finally

Thanks JT. I'll try removing the CD player first and see if it's of any benefit. If there is going to be a large amount of console trim removal I may well just go down the drill-out route. I've been using both Waze and Google Maps via Carplay in another vehicle we have and both a million miles bette...

Re: CarPlay finally

A question re the “drilling out” of the old hub. I have the new kit to install this weekend. I don’t really want to wreck the old hub but then again I’d rather not be removing all of the console trim to get access. Would the old USB hub not be removable simply by sliding the CD player out, which is ...

Re: Condensation on windscreen

I have a 2017 CX3 and I have to say the winter issues are, fo me, its biggest downfall. I leave the house before 6 each morning and don't get back to the car until about 7 in the evening. I find it mists up terribly inside when parked, takes an age to clear the front windscreen (sometimes I just end...

Re: MY Mazda app

I have the app, but it only shows the original dealer pre-delivery check in the service section, it has never updated with the details of my first year service which was carried out by a different Mazda dealer.

Re: New motoring offence from the 29th June 2018

Hikers? Ramblers? Dog walkers? Runners? Horse riders?

Absolutely agree, speaking as a cyclist, that we should obey the laws of the road, just as motorists should. How practical it is to introduce tests, well, that’s a different matter all together.

Re: New motoring offence from the 29th June 2018

Visit any forum associated with bike racing and you'll find overwhelming condemnation for the idiots featured in the video above. It's a good job incidents like this are never caused by car drivers. Oh, hang on a minute........

Re: New motoring offence from the 29th June 2018

Wow. As a CX3 driver and a cyclist who pins a number on and competes I see both sides of the coin. There are just as many appaling drivers around as there are people riding bikes badly. The roads are for 'road users' not just car drivers - if everyone showed a bit of consideration and calmness the w...

Re: First service costs?

Thanks - less than I thought. I was trying to do an online service quote/booking early this morning but the system falls over after you've selected a location - no way to choose a date. I guess I'll have to speak to a real person. Terrifying......
