Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Now Available on 2018 Mazda6

In the present day and age, it’s really uncanny to see people without their phones close by. We live in a more interconnected world than ever before, and because of that, our busy lives don’t end when we step behind the wheel of our vehicles, for better or worse. That’s why the innovations that Mazda has introduced have been so groundbreaking, and this really takes the cake – Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now available as features on the 2018 Mazda6! Today we’ll take you through these systems, as well as what they can do for your model and life.

Features and Operation of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Basically, when you see these two interfaces named, think of it as a projection of your phone that is displayed on your Mazda6 vehicle’s touchscreen. From here, you’re able to access any apps that you normally would have on your phone, such as maps, calling, text messaging, and media playing services.

Perhaps the best part of all of this is that it’s easy to connect your phone to its respective system. All you have to do is pair your compatible smartphone to Mazda Connect via USB or Bluetooth, and you’ll then be in line for all the advantages that come with these technologies!

Which 2018 Mazda6 trims have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto?

If you already own a Mazda6 vehicle and have prior to December 2017, you should be advised that these technologies are only available as an upgrade to your model’s hardware and software. Because of this, you’ll want to come and see our Maple Shade Mazda team so we can get you taken care of!

Outside of this, all new 2018 Mazda6 vehicles produced this year have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto built in, either standard or as an add-on. Model trims including the Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature all feature these innovations as standard features. Sport drivers, however, will find that it is an optional addition.
