  1. Sign reading follies

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    A few days ago, the HUD on our 2018 GT displayed the speed limit as 80 instead of 55 when it misinterpreted an Arizona state route sign, then 20 the next day when it tripped over a Texas route sign instead of the actual 75. :surprise: Anyone else have amusing examples?

  5. Disable Reading of Text Messages

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I recently wiped my phone because my Mazda3 was unable to actually view my message. Now I am able to see my messages but one thing it does is that it automatically starts reading my text messages. Is there a way to turn this off?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So I upgraded from v33 to v55 and now when I click read texts, it stops my music and reads it to me. I don't like it. Can this be shut off? On v33 it would just display the text. No audio.
  7. Infotainment reading emails-works on Xperia Z3 compact

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So, I couldn't really find a straight answer on the internet when I was trying to find out if the car would download emails from a new Sony Xperia Z3 or Z3 compact, so in case you were wondering: it can* *The only hassle is that you have to use the native email app; it doesn't work via gmails...
  8. Different odometer reading

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Discussion
    Hi everyone, I was in the market for a mazdaspeed 3 and found a gen 1 for a good deal and under kbb. The vehicle itself is well taken care of and doesn't seem to have any problems. The only part that I feel a little weary about is that I was told that the cluster was replaced (due to the...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv How-To Guides
    Hello, Is there a trick in reading the oil dipstick on the 2.5 liter engine? I just changed the oil and in the life of me I'm not sure what the dip stick is showing. There must be a proven technique. Thanks in advance.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi everyone. Hs anyone had any issues with the outside temperature reading in the Mazda 3 ? My temp reading was about 7-8 degrees off, sometimes as much as 10. Does it take some time driving for the temp gauge to accurately read ? I had a Mazda CX-5 previously, didn't have an issue. I washed the...

    I has another thread related to this but wanted to see if anyone else has had the same issue or a fix/workaround. Obviously for now I managed to put what music I play alot on my phone memory. The system does not read my SD Card in my Samsung Galaxy S4 at all.

  15. MAP reading, in vac or pressure?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    I am kinda confused. I know boost gauges start from 29 ish inHg and goes to PSI. So when at WOT, 29.8inHG means vaccum? or pressure? And since its always .5 lower then Baro, I am not sure anymore. Can anyone explain the difference? The reason I am asking is because ever since the ram air...

  18. 2010 MS3 ECU Tuning. Been Reading Up?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Engine and Performance
    Of course, I start threads out of concern and necessity, not just out of some twisted ambition to read my own words. I have been reading on some other MS3 forums about successful tunes on the 2010 MS3s. I have read about ECUTek and Piasini. There are claimed results , pictorial and video...
  19. Odd experience with temp reading on nav

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Noticed yesterday after getting the vehicle home (wouldn't you know it!) that the outside temp reading on the Nav screen was stuck at 78. Living here in PHX, AZ you can bet that we'd kill for an outdoor temp of 78 degrees so I know it was wrong. Drove it 3 times yesterday and once this morning...
