Being a new technology, there will obviously be some glitches, but updates should come frequently.
The most important feature for me when it comes to CarPlay or Android Auto is the navigation integration (which according to that review works very well with CarPlay). Google Maps is far superior to any in-car navigation software. It offers live traffic no matter what road you're on, while many cars that offer live traffic (which costs a monthly fee) only give you traffic information for major highways. Also, the maps are updated much more frequently and do not cost any money to update. To me, right now even a glitchy CarPlay/Android Auto is better than nothing, since Mazda doesn't offer connected services anymore in North America.
By the time Mazda offers it, which they still say "we don't know when its coming", it'll work much better.
