Well, here’s hoping that Mazda will very soon follow through with their recent (3/13/2017) promise of including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support (it’s already part of a Chinese Mazda model’s Infotainment system) in a new system update, and that Fiat will follow suit. Here is Mazda’s full statement:
Mazda has been a CarPlay and Android Auto partner since 2014, so it is no secret that we are developing both systems to interface with our Mazda Connect Infotainment system. Both software systems should be retroactively upgradable onto all Mazda Connect systems with a potentially minimal hardware addition needed. Mazda does not yet have an official timeline for when these should be available or at what cost, however
There is a very good chance that MY 2019 vehicles will already have the upgraded hub needed for CarPlay, installed, and if so, a firmware version above 59 may be all that is needed. See my more recent article for more details.
