Anytone had any luck activating the trip computer on the 09's? I am looking at the Scan Gauge II but it seems like I can buy alot of gas for $159.00.

I drive about 95% highway at speeds greater than 70 mph (70 legally)

At what speed to you think the Mazda 3 sedan 5 speed manual gets the best highway mileage? Just curious what others think. i am getting about 29 MPG at 75 mph.

It will get the best milage at about 50 - 55, but I'll bet you are not willing to make that your normal habit. :)

nope, won't work. You can find used stereo's from a 07 or earlier sport model and do it though. I picked up a 6 disc from a 06 for 50 off ebay. I put my piano black faceplate on it though
