I've decided that our Infotainment systems are lacking styling and theming options. Fortunately there are a few options available from the forums, but I've decided to add my own into the mix.

I'm going to take this one theme at a time, and they do take time. Find my completed and progressive theming projects below. For those looking to test out the theme your feedback is welcome.

Updates the Coins, Arc, Buttons, Backgrounds, and Icons of the original OEM Theme provided by Mazda. Enjoy the new but familiar look of Smooth Red!

Note additional releases will feature fixes and tweaks to better enhance the Theme. These updates can be installed on top of the previous version. See uninstall instructions to revert to OEM Theme.

Thanks to all who came before me with their scripting and theming skills, you guys are awesome.

I'll try getting the pic to work...but since I haven't posted 15 or more times it is a little difficult. :)

Awesome theme!
That's just the kind of look I'd like to see for the infotainment system. One question though, will the beta or final work with a custom background or background rotator?

Thanks @IamKeanu for your comment.

At this time my only plan for the background is to include a single background customized for the theme. You can however still apply a customized background of your own if you would like. Or the rotating image background mod as well.

I'll post those instructions or links to those mods after I get a couple moments.

It looks very nice. I will definitely try it after Beta is complete. Red color is perfect to match my Soul Red ?

It should be compatible with your firmware. I am running on the latest firmware version without any issue.
