    Thanks, i ordered a few days ago. I figure i can use it eventually. Even if it doesn't work with dock. I honestly think the AA headunit guys will port this to AIO and XDA will port Google AA to other phones - so if and when wireless does work, i can put the dock in the center console and use it for charging there.

    I had heard the dock only charged and no data, but good to hear you tested it. Still i can plug phone in for AA and dock for charging. Not the worst combo. Better then those that have no dock connector other then usb.

    Took the plunge yesterday and did the hack. Not very hard but a few things i noticed:

    1. It comes apart easy
    2. Plugging wires into the back is also easy, but the diagrams do have conflicting labels for Rx and Tx
    3. My USB adapter lights up when i pick the correct pins for tx and rx
    4. I had to turn car on to see the data scrollback - if car is off for so many hours the head unit shuts down. Other tutorials must assume car was turned on past few hours
    5. I know linux and putty so running commands was easy
    6. I forgot to reboot unit, so wasn't sure why it wasn't autorunning scripts from USB
    7. Putting it back together was a little trickier. The head unit has a locating dowel on the left that was hard to align.
    8. It takes some time getting used to how the command knobs works in AA and Waze
    9. I installed just "enable touch screen while moving" and AA. I have not checked for compass issue as some have reported, and I am not sure how to use the wifi or ssh defaults it enabled - more to research. Pretty sure I can't use either yet.

    I've posted this in the diesel thread also pertinent in this thread. Mazda Canada advises:

    • AA/ACP coming to CX-9 this year, all remaining models early 2019
    • Hardware/software tweaks required for retrospective installation for vehicles that already have MZD connect
    • Pricing not advised yet.
