  1. Exchange analog AC heater unit for Digital Dual Zone Unit

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Not sure why the didn't just have the single zone auto setup use the same controls as the dual without a second knob. Weird. You may get lucky and just be able to swap one in, but the dual zone won't work unless the car has the required actuators and sensors. If you are just looking to make...
  2. The Infotainment Project

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I know some feelings on this, but please refrain from the 'Nav Card Cloning' issue on this thread. Modifying your system to add new apps (that are free or bought) or disable restrictions is one thing. Cloning a NAV card is purely stealing, completely regardless of how 'unfair' you see Mazda's...

    You can't access the menu. You can edit the script to try, but the code behind hides it soon after. The only way would be to edit the code, which we cannot do. That, or somehow inject into the compiled code or run another application that uses the API to enable it (which I don't know if we...

  5. Gear and suggested gear indicator

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    It's all for fuel econ. I often go into 6th at 40 on the highway, but if I'm on a back road and it suggests it I think twice. The car is not advanced enough to be able to see the road in front of you, so it does what it can. When it suggests this, it's because with your current incline...
  6. MZD Connect & Videos

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Yes. Somewhere in the infotainment thread (it's massive) someone has done this. There are already codecs built into the system, theoretically for the DVD player functionality in Japan. You need to run console commands directly to play them though, since nobody has made a UI to do this yet. I...
  7. HD Radio Traffic Updates

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I found that once it has received a signal, it stays on that map. I live in NH but commute to Boston. As such, I notice that sometimes it will pick up the map from central MA instead of eastern MA. Once it does this, no matter how close I get to Boston it will not change. I found the only...

    Yes, but those options are only available if you have the TV tuner hardware.
  9. MZD Connect support TV?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The Japanese version actually turns off the TV tuner when the car is over the 10MPH speed check, just like the touch screen disable here. I saw a video online a while ago of a hack using the debug menus that disabled the LVDS speed check (instead of the code disable we did here), and once that...
  10. OBDII Wifi, Dashcommand and ECU Crash

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I am apt to think your ODBII device is defective in some way. I have never heard of that kind of reaction from a car before, and it sounds like there may have been a short.
  11. auto climate control

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    ^ this. You're missing the driver / passenger temp sensors and the dash ultraviolet sensor. It's probably not impossible, but a good amount of work and money.
  12. Audio Upgrade Poll

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm planning on starting with adding tweeters then going from there. The stock bose system isn't too bad, so adding in the missing highs should be ok to start. If not, I'll then go to adding a sub.

    That, and they're adding it to the Mazda 6 for next model. If it's getting a major upgrade soon is another question altogether. They may also decide to disable new features for the old hardware too. It's still too early to speculate much though.

    Simply, the wifi exposes an openssh server we can use to login to the car and hack. Now that we have found you can use certain usb ethernet adaptors, it's not as much of an issue. Still, it's nice to have there for this reason and I'm sure people will add applications in the future that will...

  17. Red key light, traction light, and vibrations

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    No, definitely not. I would bring it in. The manual says the red lights are the fobs being low on battery, but that doesn't seem to be the case since you can start the car without putting the fob up to the ignition button. The TC light... not sure. As for the pulsing, that sounds like there...

    Something like this may work: https://code.google.com/p/armware/. Just research, I imagine there are solutions out there
  19. Infotainment System Software Components

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    @Dimes2Dope your best bet to get this working is probably by grabbing the image right off the CMU. The packages you can download are installers, so you'd have to follow all the install instructions in the installer and re-create the filesystem. Even as such, you may be missing files, as the...
  20. Share your audio upgrades!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Thanks @rvoll. I knew the TAU included an amp, I didn't realize that the bose system added a secondary amp (I thought that tech was in the TAU). That explains why all the controls and volume still works with his setup. Even cooler construction of the CMU <-> TAU <-> Amp than I thought. Makes...
