Indeed it is not compatible, and it will only be if Mazda decides to upgrade their system in the MX5 ND. It is a shame, because nowadays, it is a normal feature in most of the cars and the 124 spider it is quite a new model.
I don't know if someone have news on this? Does somebody now if the MX5 is going to have an upgrade of the system soon? :nerd:
That is an older video, but yes, it looks like you can do it either way now, that was using version .5.
version .7 1. USB Audio is enabled - to actually use this, you need a separate USB thumb drive in one of the slots, as this is the only way for you to be able to select USB audio in the CMU. Please do not try to use MTP option on your android phone, as it is not going to work.. Also, you need at least one mp3 or any music file in the USB thumb drive (I used http://www.xamuel.com/blank-mp3-files/point1sec.mp3)
2. Since there was a severe case of audio stuttering once for me, I have included an option to disable USB audio and switch back to AUX. You can do this by placing a file called hu_disable_audio_out in the SD CARD (which, of course, means you now need an SD card ). I haven't actually tested this out as USB Audio worked fine at all times except that one instance.
3. Nexus fix provided by @agartner
4. Debug version of the app - to be run from ssh only - download from here . Copy to /data_persist/dev/bin, chmod 755 and run after executing the following command:
So carplay is working well in my 124. Used mazda firmware and got the parts from a mazda dealer. Just waiting for a new Serial TTL adapter as mine is bust before putting it back together.
For those of you that have been interested in some of the tweaks to the 7.0 Infotainment that the Miata folks have been talking about, I've taken on the task of trying some of the common tweaks and doing a write-up on my results.
I'm happy to report success! I presumed that the Spring 2016...
I've been applying tweaks to my Spider's infotainment system, first with Ameridan's tweaks, and then eventually moving beyond his scripts and writing my own. I've got SSH access to the car's computer from the computer in my office using keys, and I've got Android Auto 1.06 installed and working...
One of the few disappointing things about the new Spiders is the horn. The standard horn on our Spiders is just not right for an Italian badged roadster. On all of the Fiat's I've owned in the past, each of them has had a set of Fiamm air horns that are loud and heck and sound right for the...
Seen on Instagram a user named honobono123 he has done some cool mods to his ride in the past. Just now he has modified his headlamps to change colors. I can’t link the instagram as I’m on my phone. But I’ll try and link a screen shot. He has a video lots of different colors.
I know in certain...
