    CX-5 Android Auto / Apple CarPlay

    Makes one wonder if the dealer uploaded the newest update before mounting the kit. If not done in correct order it seems to mess up the whole process. How disappointing for you. Sorry to hear that.

    PSA - Mazda looking for navigation SD cards?

    My 2017 has the Street sign recognition and the navigation and I find that even though it reads the road speed sign it reverts back to GPS road speed limit after a short distance when there is a mismatch between the two. Why is there a mismatch you may ask?. The winter road side speed limit...

    (2017 CX5) Does changing only speakers improve sound quality much?

    My 2017 CX5 also had 6 speakers. It sounded terrible. I changed all six of them with "Hertz" high dB speakers i.e. four 6,5 inch /165 mm coaxial door speakers with orange magnate cover and two Hertz tweeters. The sound improved dramatically. Wider frequency range, clear treble and deeper base...

    Has any one with a retrofitted AA/ACP kit in their CX5, had problem in using their cars original/factory GPS navigator? I was thinking of installing a retrofit usb kit for AA/ACP in my 2017 CX5 but then read somewhere that the factory navigator card does not work after installing the kit. Is...

    Wow! CX-5 Short Break Pad Life!

    Obviously this Mazda certified workshop decided to earn extra money by getting me to change the brake pads earlier than needed. I chickened out because this car has a 10 year warranty and I felt that I was obliged to take their advise to retain that warranty. It cost a good amount of money. I...

    Wow! CX-5 Short Break Pad Life!

    Here is an update to my front brake pads that were supposedly down to 4 mm and needed changing according to the service technician. They were changed yesterday and I asked for my old ones back just to check. One pad at one edge was down to 4 mm and the rest of them were between 5 and 6 mm. So he...

    I could only check the outer brake pads since they were easily seen and available to measuring caliper.

    Wow! CX-5 Short Break Pad Life!

    There is something crazy about the brake pads of Mazda cx5. They seem to be made of chalk. My cx5 2017 model has done only 45000 km and the Mazda service told me that the front wheel pads are down to 4mm and need changing. I checked them and they were between 5.5 and 6 mm. The car having a ten...
