Ordered kit and arrived very quick. Reviewed install instructions. Performed firmware upgrade prior to starting hardware install. Prepped cables, watched install videos, and started install on 2016 CX-5. Only issue I ran into was getting the old hub out from console. Solution was to use a putty knife to push through from front to disengage the clips. Everything worked perfectly.
Ordered Apple CarPlay for my son's 2018 CX-5 as a birthday gift. It arrived quickly and he had it installed locally. He loves it and I'm feeling better about him not having to deal with his phone directly.
Just as described
Arrived quickly and it was just as described. I already had my firmware updated by the dealer after experiencing some problems with the infotainment system, so I only had to install the parts. It took about 45 minutes to 1, I have the usb hub located in the dash on my Mazda 3 and didn't have to pull apart the entire center console, thanks to a great idea I found on a Youtube video of drilling out the old unit.
Quick Delivery, Easy Install
The order arrived quickly (within a few days) and as advertised. Install was easy after watching youtube video. Updating the firmware and installing the wires and hub took about 2 hours. Easy job for anyone who's ever installed a car radio, etc.
Fast shipping, great price
Ordered on Friday and it arrived at the border pick up location on Monday. Unbelievably fast shipping, best price out there considering free shipping, the product works exactly as described. Order included the USB hub, the cables, foam tape, and zip ties It was well-packaged and I couldn't be happier having Android auto in my Mazda 3. I'm very glad I chose to shop with you, definitely will recommend you two others. For those lucky enough to live close to a border crossing in Canada, buying from here will save you a ton of money.
Best price and legit product
fast shipping. Got in 2 days. Bought for my husband to update his 2016 Mazda 6 Grand Touring to Apple CarPlay. He updated his firmware and installed it in a couple hours. He is extremely technical and experienced. I don't think this is a beginner DIY project though.
