  1. Cable for Android phone

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi. I have been using the AIO tweaks for a while on my 2015 Mazda3, with no major issues. Recently I activated the catscreen feature and confirmed that I have an issue with the usb cable I am using to connect my Android (Note9) to the car. It keeps cycling between "connected/disconnected"...
  2. Phone mount

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    Hello, First post here. Recently acquired a 2019 Mazda 3. Any suggestions on what phone mount that will work? Tried a Wizgear mount in the vent directly to the right of the steering wheel and the phone was too low and angled downward. Thanks.
  3. Bluetooth disconnects during phone calls randomly

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have had a terribly annoying, persistent issue with the Bluetooth audio in my 2015 Mazda 3. When I am making a call, the MazdaConnect will occasionally disconnect and then reconnect the call on the Bluetooth (in other words, the call isn't actually disconnected, just the Bluetooth). By...

    I have a Pixel 2 running Android 9 connected via Bluetooth to my NA 2015 Mazda 3 and most Bluetooth features work fine (calling, texting, audio, etc), but for some reason I am not able to browse the music on my phone with the infotainment system. Whenever I select "Root Menu" the screen is empty...
  5. Wireless Phone Charger Mod

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I looked at all the available mounts and too be honest they are all more cumbersome than the little "cubby" below the climate controls that I always use. I just bought a new phone with wireless charging so I was eager to get a wireless charger behind where I place my phone for convenient...

  8. Where are you putting your phone? CarPlay + iPhone

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I know this is a random one, but I have a 2016 Mazda 6 and installed the CarPlay retrofit. Where are you guys putting your phones? I don't like having a USB cable running up towards the front of the car (it ends up getting in the way of the cup holders/shifter/etc). Anyone run the cable through...

    Electronics / Stereo Equipment
    When we bought our 2014 Mazda 3 (without Infotainment - no screen) the phone we paired with it was an LG G4 (TMobile). Just recently that phone died and we replaced it with an LG Stylo 3 Plus (also TMobile). It pairs just fine with the Mazda but when my wife tries to make calls it behaves very...

    Hi! Just picked up my 3 about an hour ago. I've been trying to pair my personal phone with the car but my phone doesn't see the bluetooth signal that the car is sending out. My work phone does see it but I'm not allowed to pair it nor would I want to. My personal phone is a LG V20 running...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I love Android Auto, my fiancée doesn't care and didn't necessarily want me to put it on, but didn't mind at the time. I installed Android Auto, changed theme to blue, (tried to) remove the message from the test messages (said it installed but it still...

    2007-2009 Mazdaspeed 3 Performance & Mods
    PO put in a Pioneer double din head unit. I've always had mounts up on the dash to keep the phone (used for navigation) up closeish to my line of sight so I don't have to look down as far. RAM X-GRIP screwed to double din dash surround, and a small hole drilled under it for the USB cable to...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I have a 2015 3sGT hatch. I'd like to minimize wires from the center console. Has anyone tried a wireless charging pad for charging the phone in car, or have you used a small pad at home? I don't want to use a mount on the dash. Rather, I'd like to put a pad inside the center console (ideally...
