    The part was on sale for $140 last night. Keep searching for it.
    MSRP $199.
    Labor is 1.5 hrs for US (suggested). That means $200 range.
    So, dealers are likely to quote you around $400.
    Negotiate the cost with that in mind.

    There is a guy on youtube who showed the entire process very clearly.
    Search for "Mazda android auto install", and you will see it. His name is Greg. Young Asian dude.
    If you dare to DIY. $150 total is possible.
    Firmware v70 is required.

    Hmmmm. I could probably install all that myself but if I could get it done for $150 labor I think I would just pay them to do it.

    If you frequent the dealership and drive a hard bargain, you might get it done for $350 or lower.
    I plan to try at next oil change to see if I can get it done for $300 or less.
    One of my co-worker is planning to do it himself. He got the part for $140 online.
    Firmware needs to be updated to v70 first. Then, talk about installing the hardware.
