This is Old News! That has been on the Android auto site for well over a year.
The Android Auto website uses the same blurb for every manufacturer ('only available for newly purchased vehicles' etc.) so may not tell us much about Mazda's intentions specifically."Note: Android Auto is available for newly purchased vehicles, and may be offered as a standard feature or optional feature. Availability is subject to change and may vary based on geography and trim level."
So according to the statement, there won't be an option for previous owners to get the system on there cars , as it will be available for NEWLY PURCHASED VEHICLES (Thank you captain obvious lol ). Hence, Hacking" looks like the only solution to get Android Auto in our cars. (An option already available)
Just imagine how many millions of customers would like to have this option in there cars if the system would be given as a free upgrade to previous owners, it would be crazy...
Apparently you're right... old news. Sorry for the hype.There logo has been on the apple Carplay site for a while too. We will have to wait and see what that translates into for our cars.
Not sure if that would be the case, Trezdog44, but you know more about this than me.Maybe they are trying to fix the same bug we are
