  1. TSR and Truck Speed Limits

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Does anybody else have the Traffic Sign Recognition system occasionally pick up on a truck speed limit sign? I know only a few states have truck speed limits but Oregon and neighboring Washington do and it seems to confuse the TSR at random times but only here in Oregon. Yesterday I took my car...
  2. 2014 Mazda3 GT Hatch tire size limits

    Wheels / Tires
    Hi guys, I'm looking to increase the rubber-to-the-road (tire patch) for reasons of better grip in cornering and all round safety (rain etc.)... and of course, looks. The current tire configuration is 215/45R/18 - the car was also lowered with a (Mazda recommended) third party kit and...
  3. NAV system Hack for speed limits?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've been using google maps/nav for the last few years and I think it is much more accurate with time estimates and traffic (thus route alternatives) than any other GPS nav system. But I do like using the Nav system in the M3 I recently bought. I think one thing that would improve it is if...
  4. Pushing it to the limits, Tracks days, and R&D

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Suspension & Handling
    Just a little teaser of some R&D that we performed over the weekend. Lots of data and good information gathered to better serve the platform. A day at the track is always a good day. Plus a little Forum repping.
  5. Speed Limits Only Displaying on Highways

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I am driving a one-month old Mazda-3 Sport GS 2014 and live in Toronto (largest city in Canada). Version 27 is installed. The speed limits are only being displayed on highways although I have the set them to always display. I would assume that the speed limits are actually *known* by the map...
  6. CarPlay and Android Auto Limits

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    CarPlay is not what many of you think it is. I've heard statements on this board that your unit needs more power to run it because the BT chip is old. Untrue as it only works with a lightning connector. People think it will allow access to many apps. Untrue as it will not. It will be quite...
  7. Key programming limits

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, I took my Mazda3 2011 to get keys programmed. They were supposed to program 2 remotes and 2 plain transponder keys. However, the technician told me that he failed to program the last remote using his computer, and that there was nothing more he could do about it, since now the car had...
