You can download the update yourself or take it to the dealer. If you take it to the dealer, you need to tell them there's a problem and that you'd like them to update the software to fix it. It's important that you request it due to a problem. My dealer tried hassling me and saying they'd charge me for the update (on a 1 month old car with 500 miles) if there was nothing wrong. Imagine spending nearly $100 for them to plug a device in and leave it while it updates. 10 minutes of labor. Don't do that.Has there been any news on this? Also for updates do you have to go to your dealer or just download a file?
the update is easy to flash. just follow the instructions.Has there been any news on this? Also for updates do you have to go to your dealer or just download a file?
I don't think you understand the issue. If you want to use USB one day and then just jump in the car the next and have it autoplay via bluetooth, you can't do that. You have to go through multiple menus.I'm curious why people think this is a problem - design choice, perhaps? If your phone is plugged into the USB port, you don't need Bluetooth for literally anything. Even if you're in the Mazda Connect system, any incoming/outgoing phone calls (and texts) will automatically route through CP/AA and those interfaces are superior for music as well over the OEM Mazda Connect system.
Until I went out of my way and read this forum, I was unpairing the phone and repairing it every time. There's a menu option that enables "voice plus audio" that's quicker but it's still obnoxious. Imagine how annoying it is for the non technologically inclinedAh, you mean manually select BT as the audio source?
The issue is still there lol.Looks like a large update has been released per our resident badass ASH8. Anyone want to be a guinea pig that has successfully flashed in the past to see if it fixes this issue? Per usual, no changelog
What he means is that prior to connecting with Android Auto, the car has a phone paired via Bluetooth for calls and audio.Ah, you mean manually select BT as the audio source?
$$$The issue is still there lol.
All Panasonic needs to do is write a line of code that checks Bluetooth connection status prior to establishing AA connection. Then revert to that state after ending connection.
Pretty sure Panasonic manufactured the maZda connect I Units (not the display or command center) and they eventually got it working there. Not sure why they can't with II.
Really? Why do you think never? It seems like a pretty large issue that's also affecting 2020+ units, if it was something specific to the 2019s I'd give up hope.Nope.
And there probably never will sadly
Car manufacturers don't really care about technology.Really? Why do you think never? It seems like a pretty large issue that's also affecting 2020+ units, if it was something specific to the 2019s I'd give up hope.
I don't honestly even use AA that much except for longer trips so I don't care a ton.
