Well one of the gadget gurus might tell us where we are going wrong but thanks for the kind wordsThanks, anchorman. At least I know I'm not the only one and I'm not just stupid/crazy. LOL
On a side note, I must say your posts on here are always informative and helpful - especially in reference to the AWD system. Thanks for the great contributions!
Interesting. The strange thing is, my iPhone 6 connects perfectly and even streams music perfectly.HI
I had the same issue with Auto Volume, with software version 51.00.350.
I made a couple of "complaints" to my dealer on a couple of issues i had with the whole radio system. Spontaneous reboots, Auto Volume not working, wifi connectivity issues.
The system was updated to version 56.00.230 a few weeks ago. This fixed the Auto Volume issue. Now it stays on the selected setting. i have not had any reboots either, however, the WIFI connection is still HOPELESS. It is extremely difficult to have the iphone6 (iOS 9.0.2) connected to the MZD system.
In my other Mazda ( a brand new Mazda2) the same phone connects without any issues a few moments after starting the car.
Anyway, for the auto volume - request an update from your dealer!
So Ancherman - can you elaborate! Your iphone6 connects to MZD WIFI via creating a hotspot on your phone without any issues?Interesting. The strange thing is, my iPhone 6 connects perfectly and even streams music perfectly.
Can't we do our own software updates?
Erm, no. I tell you, I can pull every nut and bolt off any car and make it all work again after but I'm hopeless at gadgetry. I misread your post and thought you were talking about Bluetooth. I had my phone connected via hotspot after much messing about one evening, thinking I would be able to get live weather updates along the way to work next morning. Not so. It didn't connect and when I had a quick look, it wanted all that string of random numbers and letters so I immediately lost patience. You would think that somebody would test these damn things before they put them into production wouldn't you?So Ancherman - can you elaborate! Your iphone6 connects to MZD WIFI via creating a hotspot on your phone without any issues?
I need this to get live traffic updates on GPS, weather and gazprices, but as mentioned, wifi connection is difficult to get working.
Phone bluetooth connection and MZD works fine for me as well as music streaming.
Can you inform of your software versions on iPhone and MZD ?
I agree with you. However my dealer is rather far from home (rural-ish Canada) and did not have the latest version (that fixed an issue for me) last time I visited them. Always better to let them do it, but in my case it was a matter of convenience and lack of patience.Better let the dealer - it´s free of charge - do the job for you. It will take between 30 min and 1 hour.
I have heard of some crashes while uploading.
