    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    This may have been asked and I'm sorry if it has. Is there somewhere that I can download the navigation data and put it on an SD card, or do I have to get the SD card from a dealer. I bought the car used and the SD card is missing
  2. Is Mazda nav as bad as I think it is?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've never had a Mazda with factory navigation until now (2018 3 GT hatch purchased in Feb., 2019).
