Mazda CX-5 Fulfils Tech Promise 3 Years Late
Both Google and Apple have Mazda to thank for making Android Auto and Apple CarPlay a dream come true. The phone integrating system made for cars was developed with the aid of vehicles from Mazda hence they couldn’t get to where they are today without the Japanese carmaker.
Despite the fact that Mazda has been the official partner for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the carmaker is still pending to offer an infotainment system that can operate Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This is pretty strange, especially when other carmakers are already offering the features on their existing vehicles.
The good news is that Mazda has finally realized what they are missing and are now hoping to implement Android Auto and Apple CarPlay on all of their cars. The move will start with the 2017 Mazda CX-5 through a brand new Mazda Connect system.
It may be 3 years too late for Mazda but we will gladly take it over nothing. Like they say, better late than never right? Once Android Auto and Apple CarPlay debuts on the CX-5, we can expect the CX-3 and MX-5 Miata to follow suit.
