    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello! not sure if anyone else with Android auto or Apple car play have noticed, one of the things i did enjoy with my regular navigation from Mazda was the feature of notifying what street was coming next, it would always pop up on the top of the screen the street names. I liked that feature...
  2. Official AA, Google Maps and Flaky Traffic

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Anyone else experience the traffic layer disappearing and reappearing? Waiting a couple minutes and the traffic layer returns. You can also get it back by zooming. I like driving with the traffic layer active and find it frustrating that the traffic layer is so flakey.

  4. Waze vs Google vs Apple vs etc

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Which map do you use and why? Long story short I use google map. I tried Waze for a good amount of time. I found it was too quick to reroute me and those routes ended up being slower. It seems a problen with not taking into account time for being stopped at lights or something of that nature...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi I'm shopping for a new car and am likely going with a 2017 Mazda 3 Sport GS.

I see the Infotainment system pull up the phone and looks like it's search for music stored locally but I'd rather use a stream service through USB. It...
