What a dumb choice by Mazda NA. I have a 2016 (March Build) and have the same set up. It comes across as an afterthought, and doesn't sound good. It's a 3 party feature with a 3d party sound (not integrated into the audio system). Meanwhile Europe gets the factory installed, (integrated into the entertainment display) PDC (Front AND Rear) as an option.
notice the sensors on the Euro version
vs the US version
which is a MODIFICATION made at the port, only for the rear.

Heck, I just wish they'd get Pandora to work.........
Head over to vtec.net and read recent posts in the thread "Consumer Reports no longer recommends Honda Civic." Honda has AA and ACP but we might be glad that Mazda is taking a cautious approach. These platforms are great concepts but the reality seems to be (in the words of one of their moderators) "half baked" at this point.
just a thought...
To the point of the OP "CarPlay and android auto: yes would like the get it OR just give us live traffic updates within the maps and I would be okay, to 100% satisfied but okay...
