Mazda Android Auto/CarPlay retrofit

Recommended Posts

I never did like the Mazda infotainment system, it's not easy to use and their maps are not updated regularly, thus have been looking to install Android Auto and just came across the news that Mazda is offering a retrofit for some old models of their line up.  Before I start to play with installation files I would prefer to ask here if anybody has retrofitted or is thiking about retrofit their Mazda infotainment to Android Auto or to Car Play, is it a reliable option, if anybody did what was the price, Mazda USA is advertising a $199 USD price for software and hardware installment and 2 hours labor. I found a link at Ebay for an installment kit, I couldn't find any information about price in Thailand it keeps telling me to visit the dealer

Do yourself a favour - have an aftermarket Android system installed.

Any decent shop will have all the trim pieces to make the install look factory

You will have access to all the apps your smartfone has.

As well as fone mirroring, front and rear cameras, ...

Forget the factory garbage
