    Very happy to be a Mazda 3 turbo owner. I am coming from a 2005 IS300 5 spd. Loving the red interior and all the electronics. Already bought a dongle to add wireless CarPlay and it’s working great so far. One quirk I am not a fan of is the radio controls. It’s so complicated to change the...

    I have a 2015 Mazda3 Grand Touring with the touchscreen radio. I've installed the AIO tweaks and whatnot and have had a fairly good experience. The only gripe is the speed of the unit and the constant crashing and reboots. I'm looking into aftermarket replacements and haven't had much luck...

    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...

    Hi all: Can you help me with this situation? When I am listening to a radio station, the radio eventually jumps to the same station and remains stuck there for a varying amount of time before I can reset it to any other station. (This happens in both AM and FM, and the station the radio jumps...

    First off, please don't respond with how much or little bass the factory radio and speakers have. My issue is that the mids and low end of sound started cutting out and then completely disappeared from audio. The stereo sounds like its playing through headphones. All speakers are working, but...

    Is there any to keep the radio from playing before CarPlay has a chance to load? I just want silence until I play something in CarPlay. I have zero interest in listening to the radio. I really don’t want to have to press the mute/unmute every time I get out of/into my car.

    Hi all! I bought a used 2015 Mazda3 recently. I'm pretty happy with it overall, but have one small problem. I find that the radio display will only show the song name of the song playing at the time that the car was started. The top line scrolling display is correct, but the line by line...

    Hey all, I've got a problem where the volume jumps from around 26 (my normal listening volume) to 36 at random times. It seems to be when I slow down and/or come to a stop, but not always. So while I thought it might be the touch screen re-enabling itself and dirt on the screen activating the...

    I have a 2010 3s Hatch. The radio has been resetting itself back to the factory settings. It’s not all the time and never does it while running. I originally thought it had something to do with the Bose amp because the problem went away for about a year once that was replaced. I’m wondering if...
