A fuel gauge and speedometer are some of the most common pieces of equipment in every vehicle. These essentials have been part of vehicles since the beginning and it’s only in the last few decades or so that these pieces of equipment have become digitalized. Mazda has remained a leader in this regard thanks to its signature Active Driving Display. It’s available on a variety of Mazda models, including the 2019 Mazda CX-5. Here we’ll walk you through how to use and get the most out of your 2019 Mazda CX-5’s active driving display.
What is the Mazda Active Driving Display?
This handy feature projects driving information right above the steering wheel for easy view. The semi-reflective screen displays real-time information, including speed, turn-by-turn navigation instructions and alerts from the 2019 Mazda CX-5’s many advanced safety technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward Obstruction Warning and Smart City Brake Support (if equipped).

The display of speed is great, but all the other icons are so small that I can not make them out.
It’s my understanding that all vehicles are now manufactured with all the “driver assist features”. I hate them. They are the very definition of distracted driving. You can’t set any of them while you’re actually driving. If people need that much help to drive, they really should not be behind the wheel, they should call a taxi. How about a feature that turns off cell phones when they get in the driver’s seat. That might actually help them do what they are supposed to be doing in the driver’s seat. It nearly takes an engineering degree to set the cruise control! How about “on” “off”, that would be pretty straight-forward. The “driver assist features” are a waste for me. I agree with the other response, icons are so small as to not be of any use, if you can even understand what the icon means.
lol Beth, seems like you’re pissed because you can’t get most of these features working. I personally feel these features are pretty useful, especially the blind spot monitoring feature and rear view camera. I agree cruise control can be a pain to use if you switch vehicles, as each has its own version of it.
