    Super, keep us posted, and also let us know if you like it! Are you going to Achilles?

    so far so good
    got a 10% discount on the install from Achilles mazda and did some quick setup/testing on my way into work from there.

    So far what i've noticed is that Waze works well, it's audio even comes out of the driver speaker like the normal Mazda GPS does.

    Will update once i've been able to test more though

    From what i could tell you don't need to speak to anyone specific, all i did was ask for the service department and make the appointment. It was then installed yesterday.

    Total cost with taxes and rebate came to ~500 but that included an oil change that i did. So far i'm enjoying having Waze on my dash as well as the fact that the usb port is able to charge my mate 10 pro at normal charging speeds

    Keep in mind, i haven't gotten the chance to test Apple carplay yet, no iphone handy at the moment but Android auto works well so far. I already had my phone set up with bluetooth in the car and just had to connect the USB cable after i made sure that android auto was installed on my phone. Once i connected the cable i only had to do a little configuring the first time and now android auto just comes up on my dash when i connect the phone to the USB which has worked without issues so far.

    Only "glitch" i've run into so far was that Waze was muted but that has nothing to do with android auto or mazda, it was just a setting i needed to change in waze. Now the waze guidance/warnings and such can be heard from the front driver's side speaker just like it does with the normal mazda GPS

    How responsive is the whole system? Does it take a long time for AA to come up?

    It's exciting to get some new life in the "MZD connect"! I have several AIO tweaks which makes it bearable and nicer. I'll probably miss the album art display with CP and seeing the upcoming street name.

    from what i can tell it seems more responsive in general that before the update if anything. Some of the things i've noticed is that my phone connects to the car's bluetooth faster and the, when i plug in the usb cable, android auto come up almost instantly. Not been able to use the touch screen in android auto at all takes some getting used to but i was already used to using the control knob for just about everything anyway even before, i just have to get used to how to get around in android auto using it.
