  2. Navigation update fail

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've spent about 8 hours unsuccessfully trying to update my nav card. On the last attempt, Toolbox told me to reformat the SD card before it asked to back up the card. I couldn't find a back up I did earlier, so I didn't reformat. The card still works in the car. Where does it save the back...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all- So when did the voice command recognition for USB and Bluetooth music just completely fail?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    After working on the headlight assembly for 2+ hours, I just gave up. I went the heat gun route but just couldn't get the assembly to come apart. Just ended up making a mess. Anyone successfully install halos on the 3rd gen using the heat gun method? Any tips on that part of the process?

    Electronics / Stereo Equipment
    My CX-3 Nav system (OS Version: 55.00.753 NA, with the January 2017 SD card update) incorrectly identified a street in my area, so I contacted support AT mazdahandsfree.com, assuming that they would add it to a list of corrections to be addressed in the next SD card update. Their response was...
