    Default AA and CP coming august 6th for mazda connect

    Hiyas,

    I just found this on another forum and it's the first one that gives a specific date and looks legit. Will be interesting to find out what the cost will be though.

    AA = Android Auto
    CP = Car Play

    AA is available now with the AIO tweaks.

    Apparently the cost on the other side of the pond is about 300 EUR (450 CAD), hopefully it will be cheaper here...

    umm no... that one is a hack and it's far from perfect

    the official one is not out yet... and it involves hardware upgrade

    I just found this on another forum, specifies that it's from MCI but can't verify exact source though

    from MCI:

    "The 2019 MY (2018 for the Mazda6) will see the introduction of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a factory standard feature on many Mazda models. The other news is that ANY Mazda equipped with the Mazda Connect system (2014 and up Mazda3, 2016 and up Mazda CX-5, 2016 and up Mazda CX-9, 2016 and up Mazda6, 2016 and up CX-3, 2016 and up Mazda MX-5) can upgrade to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto starting in October.

    For an estimated cost of $455* installed (plus taxes) - there is both a hardware and software update required.

    What are the benefits and functions of Apple Carplay and Android Auto?

    1. They both can mirror certain functions of your Apple or Android smartphone on your existing Mazda Connect screen when the device is plugged into USB.
    2. You can use your smartphone's NAV in-car on the Mazda Connect display screen. Android users can use Google Maps and Apple users can use only Apple Maps.
    3. Enhanced integration for certain other Apps, like Spotify.
    4. Enhanced voice function for phone operations like voice-to-text composition while driving.
    5. Full use of Siri for Apple users.

    Because Mazda is rolling Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into the 2018 Mazda6 and 2019 Mazda CX-3 model year mid-stream as a standard feature (with a $250 price increase in the car), owners of 2018 Mazda6 and 2019 CX-3 can have the update installed for that same $250 amount instead of the full installation price."

    Thanks for the update! Yuk... over $500, I think I'll pass for now. I'll stick with the AIO tweaks, maybe it will get cheaper later

    They are going about this in a VERY weird way. It's not really an easily obtainable upgrade, nor cost effective. I think they only meant to upgrade the 6s and then have everything new coming off the line include the option. It's bizarre they are leaving everyone else to fend for themselves.

    Agree on your cost-effective part, especially considering (based on a previous post) the AA/CP integration is a $250 option (albeit built/included in the overall price) for new vehicles. And no doubt there's a margin built into that pricing.

    I'm sure there's scale when including this off the manufacturing line but double the price for a retrofit seems high to me (in my personal opinion).

    You will get much faster charging speeds though as a benefit of the hardware upgrade.

    glad to see they've responded to social media comments and pressures rather than ignore it
