Mazda MZD Connect in-car infotainment review

Mazda system is impressively simple to use, with integrated internet radio apps giving an alternative to usual DAB

The greatest aspect of the Mazda system is its simplicity. It’s operated using either the touchscreen or the wheel located by the gearstick, with buttons for key features including music, home and sat-nav. This makes it easy to operate while driving, as you can easily jump to important functions without taking your eyes off the road.

The system’s very intuitive and quick  to respond, with a good screen and sound. Our devices connected without a problem using the USB port, but it struggled via Bluetooth and didn’t always offer the full range of functions. On our CX-3, the seven-inch colour screen comes as standard with Aha and Stitcher music apps. However, lower down the range SE models get only an FM radio and a CD player.
