Well.. I gave up on Mazda.. Decided to fix it myself. When Carplay came out, I realized the only difference between the Pioneer nex7000 and the 4000 was NAV (which you get free with Apple Maps !).
soo a week later and lots of careful work, (only thing left to do is the reverse camera hack..) I am the happiest guy around haha... It is so refreshing to have my Ipod Classic actually turn on in seconds...not 20 minutes.. And everything "just works."
I did a full install of speakers/amp/nex4000/speaker cable rewire and sub.. Siri works great, and I am very happy with the sound tweaking the 4000 lets me do.
I will always be pissed that I had to spend money I don't have on this upgrade.. But I spend a lot of time on the road, and this change made the 6 an exceptional car, from an amazing car with the worst head unit since 1979....
If you are on the fence on doing the swap.. having gone thru the entire ordeal.. I would say yes ... do it. I'm not a pro by any stretch..but can can give short answers if you need a quick tip. (I was not able to do a "how to" etc.)
