Older Mazdas Can Now Be Retrofit With Apple Carplay and Android Auto


The industry standard comes to the Japanese brand—yes, even to its past vehicles

Mazda strongly seems to have been stingy when it comes to offering phone connectivity services like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in its vehicles, but with the introduction of the refreshed CX-5, those features are now set to trickle down to Mazdas built all the way back in 2014.

According to report, with  only US$199 token, you can upgrade your 2014-through-present model-year Mazda with the phone connection services for Android or iPhone, now standard on the 2019 CX-5 and CX-9.

These services allow you to use navigation, play music, and of course call people.

These phone services are great for lower trim levels that may not come with satellite navigation or radio as standard, so if you’re feeling left out of the party, this is for you. You must have Mazda Connect, however, which you can assume you have if you have a screen and three rotary buttons below a rotary knob.

To install the system, customers will have to take their car to a dealer to swap out the software and some hardware, which is a good thing. New hardware will include faster-charging USB ports as well.

Specific vehicles eligible for the upgrade are the 2014-and-up Mazda3; and the 2016-and-up Mazda6, MX-5, CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9.
