CarPlay in Mazda Infotainment

I don't know if any of you have seen this yet but it looks like Mazda is shipping new Atenzas in China with Apple CarPlay enabled. So hopefully a firmware update is in the works.

I mean its still something but this is taking quite a bit of time.. I understand the whole we want to ensure quality speech but I feel like we are going to see only newer cars have aa and cp with the promise to "eventually" patch older vehicles which will end up being us.

Were there promises made that AA and CP would be retroactively added to existing cars? If not, I'm not going to hold my breath.
That said, assuming the hardware is compatible I could see some enterprising hacker coming up with a solution for us.

I don't think they've promised for older models, and I can't speak for Apple, but in the case of Android Auto no special hardware is necessary. All Mazda has to do is let us download the software and install through a USB stick. This is what Hyundai is doing for their old 2015 models.

I was excited when Hyundai released CP/AA for select 2015/16 models and the ease of which they were able to self install the update. I Hope Mazda does the same. Please, Mazda!!

I have a feeling Mazda's reluctance to release CP/AA has more to do with money than technical reason. Other car manufacturers only include CP/AA on their top tier models that come with large screen and navigation software already, so if you wanted CP/AA then you HAVE to buy the top tier model. Mazda vehicles on the other hand all come with screens and the same software, and you can simply purchase the navigation SD card and plug it into even the base models. If they were to add CP/AA to their infotainment software, no one would be interested in purchasing Mazda's navigation then.

There are a bunch of mentions of CarPlay in the v55 software update package:

rootfs1upd/jci/gui/apps/system/js/systemApp.js: { appData : { appName : 'carplay', isVisible : false, mmuiEvent : 'SelectCarPlay' }, text1Id : 'CarPlay', disabled : true, itemStyle : 'style01', hasCaret : false },

Some references in these compiled libraries:

Binary file rootfs1upd/rootfs/jci/lib/libjcicommonevents.so matches
Binary file rootfs1upd/rootfs/jci/mmui/uia/libjciuiacommon.so matches
Binary file rootfs1upd/rootfs/jci/mmui/uia/libjciuiasystem.so matches

and a directory of CarPlay resources:

rootfs1upd/rootfs/jci/gui/resources/js/carplay
