Maybe good new from Japan:
According to a Japanese blog mazda will introduce a new infotainment system of 10.25" for the 2021Mazda cx5 for the most expensive versions can be signature and gt reserve. The rest will keep the old infotainment system.
Wait and see.
You could only do so anyway when stopped. I can't help but think they're trying to circumvent the AIO Tweaks that allow you to enable it. I don't know what version of f/w is running on this new system but they've been trying their best to keep AIO Tweaks off their infotainment system for a while now. I, like many others, find the command knob easier to use and I don't have to look at the screen as much or lean forward which, for me, is more distracting.I'm in process of looking for a CX-5 and not in a rush. I had read of some annoyances with the current 2020 Infotainment. Wondering now if waiting for the '21 may be worthwhile to get the updated version. Odd that they removed touch functionality though.
I can't find the exact article I normally reference.. but this one hints at it:I cannot believe they aren't putting these on every model. Why the hell would you want to support 2? This makes no sense.
Infotainment systems are an inconsistent mess at best from virtually all manufacturers. I'm new to Mazda, but I'm pretty intimate with Honda. Honda is currently running at least four generations of infotainment hardware. The Odyssey, Pilot, and Passport are running the newest followed by the Accord. The Civic runs an older version. The HR-V and Fit run the oldest version. Even within the same generation, there are hardware differences between trim levels and software differences between models.I cannot believe they aren't putting these on every model. Why the hell would you want to support 2? This makes no sense.
