    thanks for the heads up...
    I believe these are going to be obsolete soon with the use of Carplay and Android Auto.

    Could care less about Android Auto or Carplay since they don't work with the HUD.

    Completely agree. Seeing nav instructions slightly below your forward line of sight is hard to let go.

    Is the update free for first 2 years? I have an ND club in which I had to buy the chip separate but did a few updates a while back.

    I thought it was 3 years for the free updates. I did an update around 2-1/2 years in and it was free. Has it changed?

    Me either. Maybe it is a case of me not knowing what I am missing but Mazda nav works pretty good for me.

    They don't add new roads very quickly, I plan on updating the map every 3 or 4 years or so, not every time they add a new one.

    yeah it's a shame that it doesn't work with the HUD however, i feel the maps on your smart phone are far more superior than the ones offered on the infotainment system.
    Does the mazda maps take traffic into account? I know that's one of the reasons i stopped using it.
    But i will say the mazda maps does work and is one of the more reliable ones i've used.

    I've tested this a few times before. Set the gps in the vehicle to my house and then do the same with Waze and start them at the same time. Typically, the Waze app finds a route that's at least 5 minutes faster than the Mazda's gps.

    not to mention the closed roads and police vicinity warnings alone was enough for me to stop using the Infotainment/ Navteq maps

    I've done this a few times. Once on a 6 hour road trip. They are always identical EXCEPT on the aforementioned road trip. Waze routed me a different way around Detroit and shaved like 30 minutes off.
