  1. Recommendations on USB/Aux/Bluetooth for my 2007

    2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    Hi everyone! I'm looking to install USB/aux in a 2007 I just bought! I love it. But I can only play CDs... I'm wanting to be able to play music from my iPhone through a USB cord while it charges (ideally without needing a 3.5mm aux). Is there something out there that has this ability? I'm also...

  3. Add a AUX Port to the OEM Stereo?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Audio & Electronics
    Hi, just got my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback! The previous owner said (that her son said...) that it is possible to add an AUX port to the OEM stereo, mounting it inside the glove box. Is that really a possibility? Or should I just think about upgrading to a newer head unit with Bluetooth, AUX and...

  5. Replacing AUX with USB port?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi! I've got a 2012 Mazda 3 with Bose audio. I'd like to replace the radio with one that supports Android Auto. There's a USB port at the back of these radios, so I'll need to route the USB cable to somewhere accessible. I was thinking of removing the AUX port in the center console (since I...
  6. AUX IN in the central console

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi everyone! I have installed an android box on my Mazda 2 2015. Video is working fine but the only way to send the sound to the car is trough the AUX IN mini jack. It works but you know, that's pretty ugly. All the wires are hidden excepting this sound wire that go out to the AUX IN hole. So...
  7. Aux not working.

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Got a 2012 with standard audio. Can anyone explain to me why the 3.5mm jack works with my phone, but not my tablet. Both my phone and my tablet work fine with headphones through the 3.5mm jack, but when I plug my tablet into the aux port of the car it continues to play through the speakers like...
  8. It's crazy the sound difference of bluetooth to aux in these cars

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I just tried the aux for the first time after using the bluetooth for 6 months. Holy shit. My other car an F150 doesn't sound too different and bluetooth is really clear and when compared to the aux it's not crazy worse. My Mazda on the other hand is such a big difference between the two. The...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Apologies if I have somehow missed this -- I could have sworn I found this information a year or so back but I can't find it now, no matter how I search. I have satellite radio on my car, and I want to disconnect that and connect the AUX input (unless there is an easy way to get both at once --...
  10. USB power and AUX in dash

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a magnetic car mount for my phone and I got sick of fumbling around with a USB charging and AUX cable snaking their way around the cup holder area in my '11 sSport. I saw a thread here by Just_Stig where they routed a cable from the center console armrest to the front of the dash and out...
  11. I finally found a reason to use an AUX cable!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Since actually turning off the infotainment center so that music doesn't automatically play overtime you start the car isn't possible, I finally found a reason to use an AUX cable. Plug one end into the AUX jack, leave the other end just lying there plugged into nothing, put music settings on...
  12. Aux power drain

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, I noticed that the AUX power inside the center console stays on even when the car turns off. Now idle draining is probably insignificant , and maximum rated power is 20 watts( 3 channel). Does the car turn off the AUX power if the battery voltage drops? Do I have to worry about a low...

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I am the new owner of a Mazda 3 1.6 16V, 2007. I found some unusual cables in the car, I presume they have something to do with the audio system, some kind of AUX connections maybe. Can you tell what they're for? Is there a way to connect a USB stick with this? Tnx for your help!

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So i have a 2012 skyactiv and I didn't have the usb aux support, I know the 2013 have it, but not sure if 2012 have that support at all. If it does, then would changing the aux jack be worth while? found the part here : 66-9U0 AUDIO SYSTEMS (ANTENNA & SPEAKER) (5-DOOR). Fits: Mazda Mazda 3 |...
  16. AUX Input Problem

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Ok so my AUX input is not working right. It was working fine one day, I got to the store, and when I came back out, all I get through the aux input is static and screaching. I have tried new AUX cords and new sources. The problem lies between the aux plug in the armrest and the head unit. I am...
  17. Suggestions for Aux capabilities

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I recently just got my first car (A Red 2004 Mazda 3 2.3) and I noticed that it has no aux input. I've been looking online for a solution to this and I've found the best ways are either AUXMOD or GROM Audio. I was wondering if anyone else has a modded Aux in their car, or any ideas on how to...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, I've got a 2012 Skyactiv Hatc that I installed an iPod kit the other day. As part of that campaign, I noticed the wiring harness and connector for the 3.5mm aux input jack that's in the armrest. What strikes me as strange is the number of wires going into it (see attachment). Last...
