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...
In some of the screen shots of the 2019 Mazda 3, in the center arm rest just above the SD card slot there is an HDMI port. Anyone got this option, or had a better look into the stereo. If I could get an hdmi port installed, then put a Snes classic in the arm rest ... :D
Hi forum, first post here..
I got a dashcam and then realized that the accessory socket port is always on, so even if I turn off the ignition, it will still power the dashcam. That is of course unacceptable.
I have been asking around for a potential solution for my Blackvue DR750S. Here are...

Hi guys, just wondering....is it normal that my bluetooth obd scanner stays powered on even when the car is off? Also what is the normal idling rpm? Mine fluctuates between 650 and 740. With torque app I noticed increase in vaccuum (going from -7.7 to -9.7 psi) and then the rpm drops. Is this...

If anyone is in the Port Fairy / Warrnambool area and wants some help, I will be glad to assist.

Hi, just got my 2006 Mazda 3 Hatchback! The previous owner said (that her son said...) that it is possible to add an AUX port to the OEM stereo, mounting it inside the glove box. Is that really a possibility? Or should I just think about upgrading to a newer head unit with Bluetooth, AUX and...
I'm planning on installing an Android Auto compatible head unit in my 2013 3 hatchback. I have been doing some research on re-purposing the USB port in the arm rest to interface directly with the new head unit, but I can't seem to find anything on the internet at large about people doing that...
Any ideas would be appreciated. Just finished installing the new hub and cables but now the top usb port (the CarPlay one) does not recognise the phone at all. The bottom one works as expected -> phone charges, says USB 2 connected, can select in entertainment sources to play music...
I am not a smoker so I have no need for the ashtray or the cigarette port above it in my 2007 Mazda 3. I would like to remove these and replace it with something more useful like a storage cubby or anything else. Was wondering if anyone had any ideas/experience on what to replace/ change it to...

well, this week, it stopped working.
my phone no longer charges. the charge icon doesn't appear on my phone when...
There is a free METER2 fuse port in the engine compartment which has a rating of 7.5A and has no protected component. Is there really nothing connected to it? So if I run a piggyback fuse there with two 15A fuse, is that setup fine? Thanks!
I've got a 2012 Mazda 3 with Bose audio. I'd like to replace the radio with one that supports Android Auto. There's a USB port at the back of these radios, so I'll need to route the USB cable to somewhere accessible. I was thinking of removing the AUX port in the center console (since I...
I'm new here so be easy on me haha.
Doing some inspection on my 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback I see a white connector just on top of the OBD port.
Does anyone know what is it for?

Hello everyone! I just got my 2017 Mazda 3 GT on the weekend and I'm loving it. I have always found this type of forum very helpful and a great resource for information and enthusiasm about our cars. Thanks in advance to all the helpful members who post in here.
I have a 2014 m3 GTS hatchback but could not find instructions to use the 'sport' push button.
What guidelines are there for pressing and depressing the 'sport' button, in association with the gas pedal?
