    Having watched a video on what Android Auto actually does, I can live without it.

    The quote itself - from the CEO of ops for North America - was concrete though. "We are working on that and it will come in 2018,” Moro said, going on to acknowledge sshould have been sooner

    At risk of getting into the politics of FOXNews’ accuracy – which I do not want to do – they say CarPlay and Android Auto are already here!

    Mazda’s infotainment system doesn’t have the best user interface — and its touchscreen is disabled when the car is moving, forcing you to use one of those even more distracting knob controls — but it is equipped with the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration systems, which make everything they’re loaded into a lot better.

    Don't need to be political, just note the accuracy of the facts.

    Also note the sensibility of their opinion that knobs are even more distracting than a screen. In what universe?

    So, here’s a thought. If Mazda isn’t going to go ahead and tweak the Infotainment System to be CarPlay compatible, does anyone think there is any way they can update the system to integrate Spotify into it as they have with Aha, Pandora, and whatever the other one is that is built into the current incarnation of the Infotainment system? None of the ones currently in there even work in Canada, and it seems like everyone here uses Spotify. Would seem like an easier fix than integrating CarPlay. Thoughts?

    Try to play Spotify thru the Bluetooth or the USB port.

    Thanks. That’s not what I asked. I asked if they could make it so it is integrated as it is with Pandora and Aha.

    I was told the same thing by my 20 some year old sales person. After about a minute he said are you ok your face is really red. I said I was holding my breath.

    Been hearing about AA since 2013 and I have entirely given up on the notion of it being integrated withing the next 10 years. 2033 maybe?

    At this point in my auto purchase cycle seems I will not be purchasing another Mazda. AA or no AA

    I currently have a 2017 CX-5 GT that I absolutely love!!!!

    I highly doubt in the future I will be going to any 4 cylinder car that uses cylinder deactivation. Alot more to break down for 1 extra MPG? Im out unless they start making CX-5 in 6 cylinder.

    Maybe I am being short sighted but there is no way I would have cylinder deactivation on anything less than 6 cylinder.

    All I wanted for Christmas was Apple CarPlay in my 2017 CX-5.

    This morning, I woke up, ran down the stairs, past the tree, bypassing the amazing bounty Santa Claus had left, into the garage, and took a seat in my beautiful CX-5.

    I turned it on, and there it was, in all its glory, on my Infotainment Screen, the exact same screen I’ve had all along.

    Santa, I really believed you would come through, you always do, but it just wasn’t meant to be this year. I know I can’t place 100% of the blame on you Santa, Mazda has to be held accountable.

    I guess there is always next Christmas.

    Merry Christmas to all!!
