    I was driving today in the Bronx, with Waze running on my phone which was charging from the 12v, and listening to my Ipod thru the USB, when I got red light camera warnings thru the stereo speakers! It was definitely not Waze because that was speaking thru the phone speaker. The nav system...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I recently was upgraded by the dealer from V31 to V55. Since then, I have not noticed any improvements of any sort, but the new version does have one annoying "feature". While listening to XM, if I go to the Favorites list and select a station on the list, on V31 it used to then go back to the...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    It seems like one of two things happens when I open the driver's door and get into my car.
