Hey guys, what's the deal with the original information in this thread from last year... was the 'being added as original equipment' only going to be for Canadian versions? Just bought a US 19 Grand Touring and it doesn't have AA/CarPlay.. knew that going into it so it's not a surprise or anything, but it is surprising that a non-US version would get more features.

Are the current Canadian CX-3's getting AA/CP factory installed now?

Yes, I believe it’s now standard on all models of cx-3 in Canada produced after Sept 1 2018.

I wouldn’t worry about we Canadians having more standard features offered. We also have a maple syrup dispenser, all-dressed chip holder and a complimentary seat cover for our pet polar bears (with optional swap for a pet lobster booster seat, in the Atlantic provinces).

not regional - for the 2019 models those produced as of Sept 01, 2018 will have AA/CP, those produced before did not.
Likely was on a dealership lot prior to November. ( serial number inside driver's door on center post, in the upper left corner indicates manufacture month and year)

as per message #1 in this thread

This promotion will only be available for models built prior to the production change as of September 1. Starting in November, 2018 MAZDA6 and 2019 CX-3 models will begin to arrive at dealerships with this technology included as standard equipment.

So I just checked, my date is 11/18 and I don't have AA/CP. Plugged in the cords just to make sure. Nothing. Nada. Ziltch. Zero.

You have to do the software update, as well.

My user manual mentions AA/CP, so that's interesting. I don't know the software version I'm on, so I'll check that when I get the car back. I just dropped it off to have XPEL paint protection film applied. It will be cool if I actually have it since I wasn't expecting it. MazdaUSA doesn't even list it as an option when you build a car.

So while procrastinating on some other stuff and decided to look into this a bit. Turns out the sept. 2018 date thing might have been for the cx-9 since multiple sites are seem to say so. One guy on reddit said he 'read' sept 2019+ which is pure speculation at this point.

Just to clarify, the above post is the current state of USA models. CA and international models are another story but one would think they would have pushed it out here by now but oh well just more letdowns by mazdausa. The initial link shared in the first post of this thread by cmc-skywalker, was referring to the CA model cx-3.
