    I spoke to my dealer who said it was supposed to be coming this year but then received another just kidding email. Apparently, it’s all political. They can do it but choose not to because their lead engineer thinks their infotainment is far superior to AA or ACP.

    Lead engineer needs to have a reality check. Yes MZD connect is good but there are better ones out there including AA

    I'd understood it was coming when I bought a month ago so I'd be disappointed if it didn't. Just coming to terms with the infotainment unit now 1 month into ownership and there are so many little tweaks they could do to the current interface that would make it better:

    When I pick an audio source, show me the music details by default, don't make me pick that view.
    If the artist/album/song name is longer than the display (which is only half the screen?) scroll like my 6 year old Fiesta does.
    Put the Radio call sign in the favorites list or let me rename it from the frequency.
    Let me put my USB playlist in the favourites list, if I went to the trouble of creating a playlist, chances are it's a favourite!
    Let me have category folders in the nav favourites so I don't have to scroll down so many.
    Don't make me take my eyes off the road to press a button to read an incoming text, there are like 14 buttons on the steering wheel and you have voice commands, use one of those!
    Equalize the volume between USB, XM and Radio.
    Let me take aha, stitcher, xm (even AM) off the source lists if I'm not going to use them.
    Tell me what the currently highlighted icon stands for in words.

    I don't know anything about using USB but the last 2:
    Aha and Stitcher PAY Mazda to put those there. I'm betting part of the deal is they cannot let us remove them.
    I don't need words for icons either.

    Re: Incoming texts. You aren't supposed to be able to do that when moving unless you hacked the system. Has something changed?

    This is interesting... looks like someone has come out with some kind of adapter box to allow AA to work with Mazda connect - says plug and play. He has other videos showing apple car play as well.

    Yes but seems they have hooked up cables via glove box. So some part of the dashboard area needs to be removed to accommodate this

    Yes, i am sure of that. There is probably some kind of break out box plugged in - inline. The Glovebox stuff appears to be for other USB devices to play videos and such. There are other videos that show phones plugged in - maybe to some other USB cable too.

    I thought it was interesting as I had never seen an add on for MC.

    Maybe some sort of OBD connectors there

    Some of the icons aren't standard so their meaning isn't intuitive.

    Given the evils of texting and driving, asking the driver take their eyes off the screen and press a button within a limited timeframe doesn't seem the safest interface.

    But after a week or 2 they are redundant.

    Always skeptical: why is the entire thing written in Dutch...except for his title?

    It does line up with a new version of infotainment coming out for 2019 model year - that was on a leaked feature roadmap sheet.
