    So I’ve done the following: 1. Upgraded to v70.00.100 2. Installed the new USB Hub to enable CarPlay everything works, I’m happy, however, I want to touch my screen at any speed, so my options appear to be: a) Serial Connection b) downgrade to v59 and do AIO to enable touchscreen, then upgrade...

    Hey guys, I’m looking for a phone holder and came across the one from “ProClip” which seems to be made for the car. They have 2 options and I was leaning more towards the one beside the vent. Has anyone bought this? I’d love to see pictures of it installed and get input. I live in Canada so...

    Very happy to be a Mazda 3 turbo owner. I am coming from a 2005 IS300 5 spd. Loving the red interior and all the electronics. Already bought a dongle to add wireless CarPlay and it’s working great so far. One quirk I am not a fan of is the radio controls. It’s so complicated to change the...

    I recently installed a USB kit upgrade in my 2016 Mazda3 Sport. Firmware was updated prior to installation. Everything seems to be working fine except the top USB port is not recognized when I plug in my phone (i.e. doesn't charge, phone doesn't recognize connection). The bottom port works fine...

    Installation on my 2018 3 was very simple, as I didn't need to remove any of the center console or shifter panels. Sorry to those with the CD player that do. I just used a stubby flathead screwdriver, wrapped in tape, to do the job. Wiggled it in position where the clips were and tapped it...

    I was able to get my hands on the iOS 13 beta and I was able to try out carplay. When Apple showed it off, I was wondering how it would look and how would you control it using the Mazda Connect control knob. I made a short video in my 2016 CX-5 that goes into it a little bit. I like it so far...

    I have searched high and low for this, but nothing. Problem: SiriusXM does not show up on the Carplay screen. I've updated to iOS 12 and show the correct screen layout on my phone's Carplay settings (General>Settings>Carplay>My Car). I have SiriusXM on my phone, but it does not show up in the...

    Hi, Does anybody know if US supplied (ie. ebay) CarPlay kit will work with European car (2016 Mazda CX-5 in my case)? I've the software updated to required version and I'm wondering if there's any software/region lock that would prevent US carplay kit with EU car...? Also - another question -...

    Have a 2018 Mazda 3, and I recently plunked down $450 to upgrade to Apple Car Play. With it is you get an upgrade to the Mazda3 Connect Infotainment system, and upgrade in the USB slots. Just some observations, anyone else notice these? Is there possibly an easy fix? 1. Loading my music...

    Good evening fellow Mazdonians! My wife and I are having a perplexing issue with her 3. She got a ‘19 3 with preferred package and, when she uses Waze, the turn by turn directions are almost completely inaudible. This is regardless of if she is using the radio or streaming something from the...

    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...

    Been debating navigation software for my new 3 (don’t pick up the car for another couple of months) and wondering if there is any benefit to buying the Nav SD software? Up to now I’ve been using Google maps on my phone, and thought that the factory installed CarPlay could save me $500 in...

    after upgrading to CP/AA the audio quality substantially low, is there any way to fix it?
  14. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi - apologies in advance if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I didn't have any luck searching for it. I'm working on a project to modify the Version 70 firmware for Fiat / Abarth 124 Spider owners doing the CarPlay / Android Auto upgrade. As many of you know, the Spider is just an ND...

    Does anyone know whether it is possible to perform rewind and fast forward function using the commander control knob when CarPlay displays the "Playing Now" screen ?? I tried various music apps, including Amazon Music, Google Play Music and CarPlay/iOS own music app, and none of them allows me...

    I have a 2015 Mazda 3 and I’ve always been a bit underwhelmed by infotainment. I was really excited by the CarPlay announcement but really turned off by the $480 I’d need to spend at the dealership. And no, I’m not savvy enough to install it on my own. Since the release, it doesn’t seem like...

    I have a 2017 Mazda 3 GT. I recently got the Apple CarPlay update installed but I have problems with the audio cutting out in the left speaker for about 20 seconds. This occurs every five minutes or so. I took it back to the dealer and they can’t fix it, They are telling me that the problem...

    Is there any to keep the radio from playing before CarPlay has a chance to load? I just want silence until I play something in CarPlay. I have zero interest in listening to the radio. I really don’t want to have to press the mute/unmute every time I get out of/into my car.
  19. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just came back from the dealer with Carplay update installed in my 2017 Mazda3GT. Previously, the USB audio sounded very good, better than the Bluetooth feed. After the update, the Bluetooth feed seems to be the same as before, but the USB feed now thru CarPlay sounds much flatter, with a...

Part #: 638-72435 I would like to install a CarPlay radio in the car for Navigation and Spotify but can't find anyone that has done this modification. I came across the following ad that says it...
