Purchased the dash kit , read the instructions on the proper wiring model that was recommended . Had the alpine was free to install at bestbuy . Finally have android auto for the base model 2015 mazda3 . Bluetooth works perfect , pandora app and xm radio as well . no spotify app . * but can be used as bluetooth or on android auto

Uploaded pics but not sure if they work.

What do this cost you all in? This will be interesting to compare against the installed cost at a dealer for the official Mazda carplay retrofit
i had no idea that was even an option yet ? How much does that run ? This was 506 OTD installed and lifetime warranty

That looks great! Do the steering wheel controls still work? How about the CD player in the bottom of the center console. I also have the base model and am interested in this upgrade. Ideally, I'd like to add the OEM backup camera too if it is the right signal that the Alpine can accept. Thanks!

You can get the adapter that will let the steering wheel controls work (audio , volume etc) and you can also add the back up camera with this alpine. For CD player im sure ut will work .. my mazda 3 didnt come with any of these features tho lol..
