Hi, I've been researching the information on retrofitting the CarPlay kit in my CX-5, read a bunch of posts, found the PDF with all the detailed instructions and links, etc. On Mazmart's product info for the CarPlay kit, it says the following:

"PLEASE NOTE: This kit is NOT COMPATIBLE with the 1st generation CX-5 (2013-2016) and the 1st generation Mazda 6 Skyactiv (2014-2015), equipped with TomTom navigation systems."
A little confused. Does that mean that ANY 1st generation CX-5 is not compatible with the CarPlay kit, or SPECIFICALLY those 1st generation CX-5 that ALSO have the TomTom nav?

I have a 2016 CX-5 Touring with nav. To be honest, I don't know if it's TomTom or another brand nav. I've only owned it for a few months (bought it used).

If this is indeed the case for my CX-5, does it mean I don't have an option to do CarPlay retrofit at this time?

Thanks, I appreciate a little guidance on this!
