I think I am going to bite the bullet and order this Car Navi Player: Aftermarket Navigation Auto radio For Mazda 3 2014-2017

I have been emailing with their customer service and they even put me in touch with someone that owns a '14 Mazda3 and recently ordered the same unit. The person had nothing but good things to say about it.

I'm throwing this thread out there one last time to hopefully get some feedback from anyone that has recently installed an aftermarket stereo for their '14 Mazda3. What products have you purchased and what kind of results have you had? Thanks everyone, I appreciate any kind of response that I can get!!

I'm happy with the install. The sound quality is good and all of the features that I wanted are working properly.
Nice man. Did you get the oem cd player working with it? Or did you gwt the custom din one set up?

How long did it take you to do that.

What route did you go for installing it?

I installed it my self, my first ever car mod and it was pretty straight forward although it did took some time during installation ( 3 working days, totalling 4-5 hrs) but if you are handy and do it patiently, I think anyone can pull it off. So here it is...

thats okay i just got my S0480 from Seicane and it doesn't work... i trouble shooted everything.. reinstalled my OEM radio worked... sooo i got curious.. took i apart and the board was fried in it.. so who ever tested the equipment fried the fucking board in it... now Seicane are being dicks.... luckily i paid through pay pal.. so they have two days to get back to me... if not after all the emails sent.. im going escalate the dispute with paypal and get them more involved.

I send them an email saying its not turning on... i get sent a stupid so called wiring diagram from their website LOL and a picture of one harness asking me whats the voltage of this wire and this wire... LOL im like the one you took a picture of first of all connects to nothingg. Second alll power is correct... all the wiring in the car is correct you guys fucked it up... lol I've installed MANY MANY systems never ever have i had an issue EVER. sooo Send me a new one and i can ship this Back on your dime... or ill throw it out cause its Absolutly fucked.. its a paper weight.

UNLESS i can find a mother board that would operate with Seicane wiring.

Yep I had it installed a couple weeks ago. So far I am really happy with it. The sound quality is good and it really makes my interior look dramatically better. If you have any questions about it let me know. It runs on Android Kitkat 4.4.4 which I know is older but I don't mind it at all. All I really care is that it sounds good, looks good, and plays my iPod, USB stick, and CD's. I had mine professionally installed.
