Hi everyone. I only found this place because I can't stand that I'm locked out of my infotainment system while driving. It pisses me off to have to pull out my phone for directions because I can't enter them when I need them most (and yes, I can pull over, but that's kind of a moot point when you're miles away from an off ramp or along a road where there's no pull off).
I'm starting to wonder if I'm completely screwed though. I bought a brand new 2018 Mazda 3 sedan from the factory and the USB update doesn't work. I'm wildly guessing the firmware I have is .502 because of that. Either way, I just really wanted to find a solution that doesn't lock me or my passenger out from using what needs to be used on the road. Anything beyond that would just be icing on the cake.

You're locked out while the car is moving because a distracted driver is just about the most dangerous thing on the road. That goes for the phone, too. Not preaching, just sayin.

Welcome aboard.
