The quality of the sound is excellent! I have done a lot of car installations head units, speakers, etc. Keep in mind that installing a new radio in your Mazda vehicle might be complicated, especially if a specific tool or kit is required. Installation took a little longer than expected, but once it was done, it worked like a charm. Overall, I am very satisfied with the product. She is extremely happy with it and I am her hero. Love the ability to still use my steering wheel function. I really think you could do it in 20 minutes if you needed to.
The YouTube video was perfect showing how to remove the stereo. The installation took less than an hour, and the convenience and quality are fabulous. The video tutorial made it even easier and was a very valuable tool to my successful install. After testing and then re-assembling it works great. As others said, installation was a breeze due to the numerous installation videos. This creates a perfect sized hole to feed the iPod cord through, and looks very clean! I recently replaced a radio online for an unbeatable price so I'd be nice to browse eBay or amazon for another radio.
Now I wish I had done it years ago. You only really need 2 skills to install this device 1. I received it 2 days after ordering it online, and, using your youtube video, was able to install it in 30 minutes. This would have been a five star rating, but it's not a perfect product due to this negligence on Metra's behalf. To prevent the door of the cup holderfrom pressing against the wires, I drilled a hole under the door and inserted asmall screw to allow an opening for the wires when the cup holder is opened.
I placed the box there, so it literally took up no space inside. If installing Bluetooth Extension sold separately - microphone has to be wired as close to the driver's mouth as possible preferably to A-pillar. It was very easy to feed through. I lay the car kit flat on the left of the metal piece and lay the bluetooth module flat on the right. The quality of the music material really makes a difference. The all-new 2004 Mazda 3, or Mazda3, as Mazda calls its new line of compacts, replaces the tried-and-true Protege.
The installation of the car kit was simple. Its hatchback design and folding rear seats makes it suitable for a trip to Home Depot. You might have to buy the actual radio with the aux feature online or off a forum member. I am very happy with my car now. I did want to share a few tips on its installation, though, if you wanted to put this on your website. By doing this, I did not have to worry about scratching the trim.
Many of the modern models available from the vast inventory on eBay also come with advanced features like built-in navigation systems and Bluetooth support. Just installed it in my Mazda Protege5 single disc. Found you on the Internet and since I am local I had my kit in 20 minute. Your steering wheel controls can be used for music skip, it is perfect! It works exactly as advertized. It is a great value for the money and I would definitely recommend to my friends. If you want the most intuitive user interface, consider a touch screen model that allows you to swipe or tap the screen rather than finding buttons while you are trying to concentrate on the road. None of the codes in the manual work, so i can not change the boot logo.
I would give a higher rating if i could actually mirror my Samsung s9+ to this unit. I also was a little concerned the sound quality might not be that great with an aftermarket tech part like this, but I was blown away by the sound of this unit. The bluetooth quality is also very good. Even the steering wheel controls work. There are space on the left and on the right of that metal piece.
This way both the iPod and the cables are hidden. Installed in my 98 528i that had stock cassette unit and 6 changer setup. However, it would be much better if the iPod can be paused and play using the dash controls. The installation was very easy. The only issue I had was trying to figure out how to get the cd player back in with the wires and box out of the way and I used a little bit of Velcro then tucked them in the back to the left. At least the bluetooth works.
I tucked the wire from the stereo to the carkit toward the hole between the stereo slot and the steering wheel. I downloaded a different android launcher that is really nice from play store. I then worked my way to the front of the trim near the shifter. I love that its just plug and play! I needed something to listen to the music on my phone while I drove, and I heavily judge other people when they drive with headphones in, so I decided not to go that route. I had tried another brand and could not get it to work. You should be able to slide the stereo back in without much effort.
