    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.

    I thought I had read somewhere that Toyota was working on their next generation interface and wondered if Mazda might get that as well since they are family.

    Again with the MEH-ZDA. It's not MEHZDA. hate the way some people pronounce it. MAH-ZDA! Nice that someone finally confirmed it is coming to all
    MZD systems.

    Heads up - AA/ACP has just been added to Mazda BT-50 ute (pick-up) here in Oz land but based on the information provided, seems to be not off MZD Connect but Alpine Infotainment unit meaning still a while to go before CX-5 gets AA/ACP on MZD Connect:

    Mazda BT-50 2018 pricing and specs confirmed

    Eyes forward for new-look Mazda BT-50

    Theres a video on this topic with the same guy talking to one of the head Mazda Canada marketing people, what he stats in this video is a summary of her words. That first video is more informative.

    Awesome! Thanks for the report! I ordered the necessary items today from Amazon and plan to attempt this weekend on our 1-day old CX-5 -- despite my wife's pleas not to :-) She's an iPhone user, but I think even she'll be blown away by AA once it's up and running. Right now I'm just plannning to leave an old Android phone in there on some kind of cheap Tello plan or something.

    I'm on your wife's side. Why would you risk voiding your warranty, and breaking your car for a feature that's likely rolling out in a few months? I considered the hack too, but now that Mazda has actually made an official announcement, there's no point. Also, why leave on an old phone in there? Why not just use your everyday device?
    If she's an iPhone user, she'll probably enjoy Apple Car Play more.
