I doubt it. It can replace the headunit as in it will remove it and just throw in a standalone pioneer radio, canbus wiring will only retain steeringwheel controls and maybe a few knob commands. Im not sure where the settings alarm/lighting/hud/etc in the unit itself are saved, (in the oem radio itself or is it reading off of another bit of hardware in the car). The reverse camera in particular is proprietary so that will need an aftermarket camera.

On a side note, I ordered one of those android radio chinese units from aliexpress and should be here within the upcoming weeks and ill post a review and limitations of it as soon as i get it installed. it claims to retain everything oem and sideload a separate android OS while having a bigger screen so it should be interesting.

Regarding the pioneer setup though, if you already have the mazda touchscreen unit, stay with that, The pioneer will cost too much for what it can do and will lose alot of features and convenience.
