Apologies if this has been shared here before, but I came across this and it works!

Well, I know what I'm doing on my lunch break.

I followed a few "related" vids from that one and stumbled across Mazda CMU Hacks.

Time to do some research!

I enjoy using the commander controls. I rarely use the touchscreen. I'll be honest, one of the reasons I bought this (and will buy a Mazda in the future) is because I get these controls without paying $40,000+ for a car lol

I feel the same. I've only used the touch screen a few times. The controls are very similar to my BMW.

......and I dislike fingerprints on the screen

If and when we get Carplay or Android auto in our units, I imagine there will be lots of fingerpints on our control panels... Unless perhaps the commander controls will be able to control those functions as well.

They're supposed to work with physical controls. My mom's new Passat has AA/CP and they work with the physical controls as well as touch.

It's disabled for a reason.

Personally don't use the touchscreen as I also hate fingerprints all over it.

Still.................mustn't grumble
