Will my Smartphone Connect to my 2021 Mazda CX-5?

If you have an Android phone, your phone has to have Android 6 or newer in order to use Android Auto™. If you don’t know your android version, make sure you bought your phone after 2015. Older phones may not be able to use the application. Android 10 and newer phones have the app already installed.

If you use an iPhone, you can use Apple CarPlay® if your iPhone is an iPhone 5 or newer.

Both iPhones and Android phones need to use a USB charging cable to connect to your car. When everything is plugged in and turned on, you will need to do some setup on your phone and/or infotainment screen, and you should be ready to go in a few minutes.
