    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all :) I've finally joined the Mazda 3 revolution yesterday after buying a 2017 Mazda 3. I've installed the AIO software onto a DOK (with Android Auto package), went over to my car, did the whole installation (went super smooth!) and after everything finished I: (a). Enabled Bluetooth and...
  2. 2011 Android Auto + Routing a USB port

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Audio & Electronics
    I'm looking at picking up a new head unit so that I can run Android Auto, but to take full advantage of that I need to install a working (data-enabled) USB port to somewhere in my car, I'm thinking on replacing the cigarette lighter in the center console. The female USB input included with the...
  3. Installed a DDX9704s in my 2012 Hatch

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Overall the process wasn't too bad. This was my first time installing a car stereo but from what I've seen pioneers/alpines should be similar. I tried adding links to the guides that helped me but I'm under the post limit. Parts you need Double din radio Metra 70-7903 Harness iDatalink RR...

  5. Getting a flat signal from the factory head unit?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I would like to know if any of you guys know a way to get a flat signal out of the OEM head unit. I have noticed that there seems to be a high pass filter of ~-6 db per octave @40 Hz in the factory head unit, which really bothers me since I listen to a lot of hip-hop with a lot of content...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hello everyone, I'm installing a new head unit (Pioneer AVH-X5800BHS). I ordered the Metra 70-7903. When I removed the stock radio, I noticed there were 3 connections. The antenna, and 2 wiring harnesses. Now, I hate tapping into the stock wiring (for the obvious reason of screwing with the...
  7. Miopocket?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I installed a new head unit about a month ago and am no thrilled with the interface. It's better than the stock unit but it definitely leaves me wanting. I mostly use bluetooth audio when I'm in the car so I'd like some track information displayed. As you can see from the pictures, this...

  12. Clicking from aftermarket head unit with Bose system?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The guy I bought my 2010 hatch from put in the aftermarket head unit (a Pioneer, if it matters) and aside from it being kinda low-end, it did the job well enough. He didn't opt for the steering wheel control module, so that's just dangling back there. Anyway, yesterday the audio started to go...
