  1. IPod use

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, New owner of a 2018 Mazda3 Touring sedan and still learning all the features Small issue. I keep my Ipod hook up in the car at all times. When I start the car the silly disclaimer screen appears on the infotainment screen then it needs to search for the Ipod. When it appears it will...
  2. Infotainment with Ipod problem

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm getting random beeps when playing an Ipod in my 2015 Mz3. Sometimes the tune backs up in a short repeat loop, sometimes not. The little circle thing that crawls along the bottom to count the playing time glows red. It seems to happen when I stop at some of the traffic lights that set off my...
  3. ver.502 iPod issue

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi All I got a new 2017 Mazda 3GT and it came with ver.502 preinstalled which I was prepared for even though I knew I would miss the Larger Icons, Backgrounds, and touch screen. I'm not prepared to take apart the dash to do the mod that's described in other threads in order to gain access to...
  4. USB (iPod Classic) and shuffle by album?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I just got a 2017 Mazda3 Grand Touring. First annoyance: I can't figure out how to shuffle by album (within a playlist, and as opposed to by song), using my 160 GB iPod Classic. Is this possible, and if so, how? It also takes an extremely long time to load the playlists so I can even get to...
  5. Anyone using ipod with CMU?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I tried a SSD but the headunit SUCKS for large libraries. Every time I turn the car on it has to recreate the ID3 tag library. I happen to have my library well organized by folder but even going by folders sucks because scrolling through the library is very slow (folders arent laggy, its just...
  6. Problem with long audiobooks on ipod

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    We listen to audiobooks on an ipod nano plugged in to the USB port. Generally it works fine, unless the book is longer than 405 minutes. At the 405:47 mark, the position counter freezes at 405:47, but the book continues playing. I could probably live with that, but if I do anything that would...
  7. Issues with iPod Mini

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    My Mazda 3 Infotainment system doesn't seem to want to load the contents of my brand new iPod Mini. Whenever I switch to it, it starts playing the first song alphabetically on the device. When I try to go to the list of Artists or Albums, it's taking forever to load the lists, and then won't let...
  8. Ipod question? cmu150_NA_55.00.650

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Recently installed cmu150_NA_55.00.650 from version 33, on my 2014 Mazda 3S Touring. I am using a Ipod classic 160GB with about 60GB of music on it. The issue with version 55 I am having is the infotainment system forgetting my ipod is plugged in roughly every other time I start my car. It...
  9. Alphabetical song search with iPod blank?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Haven't seen this discussed here. The other day my infotainment just decided to stop showing the alphabetical search on the right side of the songs list. This has never happened before, and it's ONLY in the "Songs" list. If I go to "Artists" or "Albums" the letters on the side do show up and I...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have an iPod classic. Non color screen with the scroll wheel. 20GB harddrive (not flash memory). Will not work with Mazda Connect. When i roll over USB 1 or 2, its greyed out. Anyone know of a fix? Worked fine in my 13' Sonata. The Mazda connect site says there was compatibility with...
  11. iPod mini doesn't work with my infotainment

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    My iPhone 4 works fine with the infotainment (usb plug), but my mini (and my 140GB classic) don't work. Has anyone been successful in getting older iPods to work?

  13. iPod Issues

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I tried to search but it doesn't seem like anyone is having this particular problem: I connect my iPod via USB and it only works maybe 50% of the time. The other half it says 'Authentication Error' until I get in the car the next time and then randomly works again, though it does not remember...
  14. iPod and Infotainment Screen

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Greetings Everyone, I am sorry in advance if this already has been posted but has anyone had any trouble with the Infotainment screen displaying the wrong song or artist when using an iPod. Take for example the other day I was listening to "Hollywood Undead" and then the artist that was...
  15. Corrupted Artwork from iPod after V31 Update

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi All After getting my 3GT upgraded to v31 Infotainment firmware today all seemed well until I used my iPod. The Artwork comes up garbled or background only. This is with a 75% full 160Gb iPod Classic. (about 20,000 songs). All other artwork from my phone, a memory stick etc seems to be fine...
  16. iPod cables

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Does anyone know if you can replace the iPod cable that runs to the back of the stereo through the glove box with another cord, I have the iPhone 5 so the cord is kind of pointless to me
  17. iPod Stuck on Pause when Plugged In

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Mornin' everyone! Used to have a 2011 Mazda 3, just traded it in for a 2014. Hated how in the 2011, you couldn't control an iPod with the car audio controls. Just noticed with the 2014, the audio system will recognize an iPod if plugged into the USB jack. Awesome! Now... when I have it plugged...
  18. iPod USB "Authentication Failure"

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm loving my Mazda 3 so far and haven't had any of the tech issues yet that other's have had (knock on wood), but I am having an issue with my iPod. This may be iPod related more than car related, but I'm not sure... When I plug my iPod into the USB, it seems to recognize that it is a music...
  19. iPod issue??

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys so let me start by saying that i've had this issue once before but I guess it "fixed" itself by me not using my car for a week due to a vacation I was on back in September. Anyways so my car has an upgraded audio system. Aftermarket headunit, speakers, amp, the whole shebang. I'm...
  20. 2013 iPod stopped working - base stereo

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I got my '13 iTouring about 3 weeks ago with the base stereo unit. I plugged in my iPod nano via USB port and up until today it has worked fine anytime I've used the "Mode" button on the steering wheel to switch to "iPod" mode. Today I got in my car when leaving work and iPod mode was completely...
