  1. Can OEM Display Show Engine Data such as temps?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Some time ago, I remember seeing where someone enabled the dealer diagnostic features on the display above the radio. I think you can see some limited data about the engine such as engine temp, coolant temp, transmission temp, etc. Can someone point me in the direction to find this info in...
  2. Disable USB data?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi! I have a 2015 Mazda 3. I use a GoPro as a dashcam and iPhone for navigation. Since the USB ports do not have enough power, I have to use a car charger. I have only one but I need both the iPhone and the camera to be charging. If I plug the camera into USB hub, it charges but I cannot start...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Hi, There are no clear instructions on OVTune website on how to data log and reading on the treads didn't provide me a good answer. I know I need to do a WOT pulling from 3rd gear until I reach redline, but what other logs should I do? Do I need to a log a file for engine idle? A log for...

  7. Traffic data on the MZD

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Does anyone know if it is possible to get "live traffic" through any other means? The purchased subscription from navi-extras or whatever is rather disappointing. I subscribed for a year and to be honest, it was a joke. I'd be standing still in traffic but the system would say the traffic was...

  9. How do I stop sending the dealer my data

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    When I bought my Mazda 3 I told them I didn't want their after market $900.00 GPS system. They agreed all to easily not to add it to the deal. While I was filling out the paperwork the "finance guy" offered me a $50 credit if I installed their dealership App. They were quite pushing it. I...

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Need help in interpreting what all this means. Where can I get info on what safe parameters are for the speed 3 to run at. What kinds of things should I be logging?

  12. RDS Data

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I've got a UK model 2014 Mazda 3 and I've noticed that the radio doesn't update the RDS data for the currently playing track when listening to the FM Radio. You have to manually force it by switching radio station to get the new data to show up. Does anyone else have this problem? FYI, I...
  13. Radio Data. Song/artist display stuck

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I haven't seen any discussion on this and I'm wondering if this is unique to my car or normal. With the FM radio on there are two song/artist displays on the screen. One on top is a single line of scrolling text. The second one is a three line display of fixed text. The top display scrolls...

  17. Data Logger Phone App

    Off Topic Lounge
    If it doesn't already exist (I searched the Apple App Store. Not too sure on Android), do you think it would be a good idea to develop an app that does data logging and fabricating a cord that plugs into your car's OBD from your phone? Would that be feasible or practical? And would a large...
