I'd be quite surprised to see Apple Car Play and Android Auto coming in an updated CX-3. As a previous poster is correct about the joint infotainment venture with Toyota will surely kill that from happening. I would add that Toyota's Entune is a complete joke and on their forums it's common the system crashes. I find Mazda's Connect System is great, and it's a pity they'd join forces with Toyota.

What the infotainment crashes more than the Mazda one...... I counted 32 on my trip today (actually that’s an estimate I gave up counting at 15) it does make me laugh when it crashes as the radio carries on.

The toyota Nav uses Tom Tom traffic data hell if a lot better than Mazda’s provider

I've found infotainment crashes on my CX-3 seem to be related to the memory stick inserted into the usb portal which contains my music. Once I remove it, let the system load, and then plug the memory stick back in, the crashes stop. The additional memory card seems to overload it at boot up stage.

I have nothing plugged in, so not that for me.

I am happy to just listen to the radio or play a CD, which is all the technology I want or need.

My only gripe is having to turn up the volume higher than I would like in order to overcome the relentless road noise.

We all have our own individual gripes.

Road noise isn't an issue for me but the infotainment system is. Every car has it's foibles and issues.

True, everyone’s perfect car will be different in one way or another.
