Distraction message on startup

Getting this message on the screen every time I startup. Even if I press the "I agree" button, it still pops up every time. It's a 2016 with the optional Bose/Navigation system. Anyone else getting this? Any way to make it go away forever?

I believe its always going to be like that no matter what you do. Think its a legal thing or something of that sort.

Correct.

By law, each time you start your car, you must agree that you are at fault in the event that you are involved in an accident, and not the GPS or the screen.

Mazda must cover themselves in the event that someone tries to sue them for blaming the GPS as being a distraction while driving. By agreeing to that each time you turn the car on, you're the one to blame if you do something dumb

Ok, thanks guys. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one. Funny, no other car I've driven other than this Mazda uses such a disclaimer at every startup.

Odd. My brother's 2004 Acura TL has this warning. In fact, it was one of the first cars to implement this so that Acura could allow people to use the navi while driving since they agreed to the terms beforehand. I figured most cars after that followed-suit.

I figured Mazda wanted the same thing, but found it redundant that they make us agree to the terms, but still disallow the use of the navi while driving because of the "Safety Lock." - But I digress.

You don't have to hit agree. It will go away after you start driving.

The system is stupid in many ways; they make you agree yet you can't use the Navi, at least some options of it. Voice Command keeps "hearing" you wrong and proposing odd options; you can hit download message while moving but can't read the message, however, they display a message saying "can't display while moving... etc" which you still have to read (well, not really, but still...); sometimes when you connect to bluetooth while moving it asks you to download 15 messages 'yes or no' but yes is grayed out; and many more stupidities like it. Just plain stupid altogether. Still a nice car but infotainment sux!

Not stupid to be honest. Its a legal matter. Just to cover themselves. There's ways around that but then again its only in place to make sure you are "safe"

My wife is an insurance adjuster and I always gave her a hard time until I experienced the number of idiots that are out there. Knowing this it's easy to understand why companies need to cover themselves.

I get what you're saying due to the old "CYA" method in this litigious society, however, to gray out a lot of functionalities in the name of keeping you "safe" does not enable safety, what it enables is some people to get frustrated and reach for the phone device after all because they can't wait to check who wrote them. I think it defeats the overall purpose of staying hands free.
