  1. New to the forum — Question about Album Art/Sirius

    Electronics / Stereo Equipment
    Hi everyone! Just became a proud owner of a 2018 3 Hatch GT. So far, really loving it compared to my old Civic which was essentially a golf cart. I have a question regarding the display for Sirius. Album artwork is not displaying and a lot of the artist/song name are cut off. In addition to not...
  2. Apple Carplay Album Art display mode

    2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    Hey'all. New to the board, just got my 2019 Mazda 3 Sport GT. I love the look of the album art display mode as shown in the link below. Sometimes it doesn't display it in this mode. I am using Spotify. Anyone else have this problem? Or know how to change it to this display mode? Thanks...
  3. CarPlay Album Art?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, I've just finished installing CP/AA into my Mazda 3. So I've had a little play around with CarPlay and I've notice that the Album Art is blurred in the background when "Now Playing" is selected. Is there anyway to bring the Album Art to the foreground? It just doesn't look right...
  4. Shuffle Music by Album?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Is there any way to get the music to shuffle by album instead of song (within a playlist or a folder on a USB drive)? I've so far failed to get that to work?
  5. Connect not showing album covers for music on USB drive

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello, I am having a problem that I was now trying to solve for 3 days without success. Two weaks ago my Mazda dealer updated my car to Version 59.00.504 EU N. It then started that some albums on my usb stick did not show correct album covers. Instead a generic cover was displayed...
  6. USB (iPod Classic) and shuffle by album?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I just got a 2017 Mazda3 Grand Touring. First annoyance: I can't figure out how to shuffle by album (within a playlist, and as opposed to by song), using my 160 GB iPod Classic. Is this possible, and if so, how? It also takes an extremely long time to load the playlists so I can even get to...
  7. What causes album art to be displayed?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I think there has been prior discussion, but my search didn't find an answer. I recall I used to have the album art display while playing a song off USB, but for quite a while now that has not happened... perhaps since updating to the latest Infotainment system. Where is the album art found? I...
  8. What happened to album art?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've noticed lately that there is no album art for any of my music. It used to be there. I don't think anything has changed. All my music is on a USB drive. Any explanation for this? Would rebooting the system make a difference? or perhaps reloading Gracenote? It's not that I actually care...

  10. Tips for crashing USB users, ssh stuff, album art, also Gracenotes 4.0 is out!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I just upgraded to v33 myself and will grab a USB Ethernet adapter to ssh into the system. Hilarious stuff, wonder if/when Mazda will try harder to crack down on this. I believe I read SSH is disabled over WiFi (may have been an EU owner or hacked wifi back on) for v33 so a USB Ethernet...

  12. No album art, no song progress marker over bluetooth

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I searched around a bit and didn't see this mentioned, so ... The car is '15 iGT. The phone is iPhone 5s on iOS 7.1.2. I am getting music over bluetooth no problem. But, the album art never shows up - all I have is a blank square. What's probably worse, is that the music time progress info does...
  13. Infotainment Album Art Support

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, Just a quick question, what are the supported formats for Album Art in the Infotainment? Does each album cover needs to be embedded in the MP3 file (as a tag) or does it work as folder.jpg in the same folder as the album? Or maybe something else entirely different? P.S: I have yet to...
  14. Album cover art

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I can't get the album cover art to work with my iPhone. I can see cover art just fine with Pandora / Aha, but not with the iPhone Music Player. Is this a software problem ?

    I have the Bose hatchback GT and have a 64 GB flash with all my music plugged in.

Can some one provided a step by...
