My aftermarket unit does not support trip computer?

Hello!

I had my Mazda 3 2007 (1.6 diesel) model for 6 months now and I recently tried to enable the trip computer as the car didn't had it available when I got it.

My problem is that the aftermarket navigation unit it has (QL-MZD501) is missing the buttons required to activate the trip computer. After some google-ing I discovered this website: china-car-electronics.ecrater.com, where is mentioned that the gadget comes "without CAN-BUS technology".

This means I can't get the trip computer enabled while having this unit?

Thank you,
Adrian.

The NA M3 LCD's could display trip/gas/clock without the OEM radio, but you'll need to re-hook it back to change the settings.
Thanks a lot, guys!

S... basically during the installation of this navigation unit I lost the trip computer and I can't get it back without plug in the old one and activate it from there. :(
