  1. MZD-AIO install, now Android Auto is VERY slow/freezes/wont play music?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Any ideas why this might be happening? I ran the install yesterday and it seems like the other tweaks i installed are working correctly, like the touchscreen while moving and removing the camera safety warning. Additionally, the touch screen is now enabled in android auto, but it is VERY slow...

  7. Android Auto doesn't resume music playback after call

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Has anyone else encountered this? After completing a phone call, Android Auto does not automatically resume playback.

    I recently had the retrofit for Carplay/Android Auto for my 2017 Mazda 3. My pixel3 was somewhat working (Maps worked/phone did not work for audio) but I haven't been able to get it to reconnect again. I have tried multiple cables and phones (which did work) which has led me to the following...
