2016~2021 Mazda CX-9 Android 10 HU Screen

Has anyone tried this out on their 2nd gen CX-9?

Aside from the CX-9, I also have a 2013 BMW 528i (F10) that came with a 6.5” iDrive infotainment screen and had no CarPlay or AA capability. For the F10, it was a no-brainer to add on so that the vehicle would gain built-in GPS, along with Carplay and AA, as well as smart device functionality. I installed the 12.3” Android HU in the F10 and it definitely improved vehicle livability.

Since the CX-9 already has CarPlay and AA functionality, it’s not as imperative or, even needed. The Android HU will likely not improve the startup time of the pre-2021 CX-9 infotainment system, only really add the bigger display. I really wish there was a way to upgrade to the OEM 2021 system.

Bigger screen would be nice. Allowing touch while driving would be nice (I don’t know if this one does that). YouTube/Netflix/Hulu and other video streaming would be a nice to have while stopped of course 😉. If it allowed for a second front facing camera to be added, then I would buy it even if it didn’t have all the other features.

Since this is likely a derivative of the Android 10 HU that I installed on the F10, I can confidently say that it is a touchscreen. Video streaming is easily added by installing apps. It has 4G support. I added a rear camera on the F10 that connects to the Android HU, and it also had support for a front camera, which I did not use.

Here is the install I did on the F10:

That looks like a huge step up on the F10. Not as much of an increase for the CX-9. I’d be willing to gamble on it. We are in the process of moving right now though so it’ll be quite a while before I would be able to

Yeah, on the F10, adding it was a no-brainer but not as important on CX-9. Anyway, good luck on the move.
