    2013-15 radio retrofit to 2012 possible?

    Has anyone retrofitted the 2013-2015 radio with touchscreen and navigation to a 2012 or older cx9?

    My suv didnīt have navigation, just the standard radio with bluetooth and rear view camera but I would like to buy a later model used radio and replace it.

    It would be compatible?

    Thank you.

    I don't think many people have tried to swap radios from one year to another - most people end up going aftermarket because the OEM stereo and navigation wasn't all that good to begin with.

    I don't know if this will work or not. I think you probably need to do a little digging in one of the online parts catalogs (or call a mazda dealer) and see if the wiring harnesses are the same from year to year and from the base stereo to the upgraded one. I'm pretty sure they changed the harnesses at one point.

    yes, u r right. im also looking forward to use android base player.

    But my concern is the button for INFO and CLOCK SETUP.

    I just got my CX 9 less than a month ago. it wasnt a high/full spec as it didnt come with power boot. The player also using radio without display. (didnt hv reverse camera).


    I notice that a later model hv some upgrading such as relocating INFO Button onto steering wheel.

    what if im swap that steering with mine? Mine dont hv INFO button. Do u think its possible? If yes, then my next move will be installing new android head unit with reverse cam.
