    I’m a PC user. I like iPhones so I’m stuck with iTunes. This is a summary of what I did to convert my iTunes music library to MP3, generate a playlist, and put it all on a USB flash drive. I can Select USB as the source. The playlist works. Sorting by album, artist, or genre works. Direct access...

    Hello guys. I'm new to the forums and recently purchased a 2017 Mazda 3. I have just recently begun hacking the infotainment. So far I've backed up my jci folder and installed Android Auto and the touch-screen tweak to enable it while driving using the AIO tools. I am also a developer and am...

    Hello all, I will get my new M3 2.0 165 in a couple of days (I'm counting the hours...) Do you recommend me not to pass x RPM the first 1000 km or something like that? The dealer hasn't told me anything about that... Thank you!

    Anyone know what the final drive or differential ratio is on our s3 2016s are? I've determined that the minimum speed in gears on my Miata GT is 5 x the gear #, corresponding to about 1500 rpm. For the 3 sGT, it seems to be between 6 and 7. The Miata's final drive ratio is 4.10. That would...

    So I did this - I have an after market stereo (Pioneer) that has a USB port, using a cable to plug in a thumb drive, but I didn't like running the cable down along the console to my seat. I bought this cable...

    BLUF: Do new, from factory manual vehicles have a coating that "burns" off on first drives? Good afternoon! I took my first new car test drive the other day in a manual 2017 Mazda3 2.5L that had about 8 miles on it. About 5 minutes into the drive I finally was in the position to shift to and...

    Trying to get the best setup for music, so I copied a bunch to a thumb drive and stuck it in the USB 1 port. Was organized nicely and all that, however when I shut off the car and came back, it said "no playable files found"... I had to remove and reinsert the drive; is that normal behavior...

    After using someone else's ratchet over the weekend, I got used to a very resistant release button. When I got back from the trip, I found my car would barely start. I picked up a new battery today at costco and when I went to put it in, my finger slipped and released the drive right into the...

    I was browsing Mazda's site yesterday looking for information about brakes, and I stumbled upon some interesting information regarding the MT, and the gearing is different between the 3i and the 3s, and how the final drive differs between models. The gearing is as follows: Mazda 3i Sport 1st...

    Hello all, I have a 2013 Skyactiv Mazda 3 Hatchback which I love. One of the best handling cars I've ever drove. The car has 26,800 miles. Recently, I have began to notice an issue. In the morning (which is actually ~80 degrees), I notice about a 1 second delay shifting from reverse to drive...

    How USB flash drive music works on the Mazda Infotainment system (Some of the scant information available compiled from use, a Windows forum, here, there.) Flash (apparently) must be FAT32 formatted. (Maybe because the software is Linux-based? I'm a lont-time Win hacker, but a recent newbie...

    Hi, I have a 2012 Mazda 3 with the skyactiv engine. It has only 70000 miles on it. I am having a problem whenever I put the car into drive from either park or reverse. It takes about 10 seconds for the car to go into drive and then it jerks forward if I put my foot on the gas. We took it to a...
