Consistency must be a word not understood by Mazda software designers.

Yes, I have pointed this out before. I found it extremely confusing at first.

If you look in the manual, you will see that the "list" icon should display the track list, and the "folder" icon should display the category list, as is logical, but the ordering of the icons (same as reality) is illogical -- the category list functionality should appear to the left of the track list functionality (as it does in reality, but with the wrong icon).

In short, both the manual and the reality are wrong. The best fix would be simply to interchange the icons on the display:

second icon -- 'folder' -- show category list
third icon -- "list" -- show track list

The existing manual would describe the icons correctly, but the figure would display them in the wrong order. No big deal.
