As an old fart, I really enjoy looking at gauges instead of depending on idiot lights.

    Nice, how does this Garmin Nuvi get the car info? Is it bluetooth connected or OBD port?

    phone mount

    Just got this on Amazon and it’s pretty neat. It doesn’t require any adhesive and clips between the two round vent rings.

    My wife has a pop socket on her phone so it sits a little funny but it fits

    Neat option if access to screen is needed

    Most of the time mine stays hidden in the center console storage connected to the head unit for music and bluetooth for phone/siri

    I don’t have any stored music on my phone anymore since Spotify. The head unit display is limited in its ability to switch playlist, Spotify radio stations, or songs, and I find myself fumbling with my phone while driving. I tried to hold off getting a mount for as long as possible.

    My truck has CarPlay, which solves many of the above problems.

    I run around between amazon pandora spotify etc and between the arrow keys and rotary knob so far its been sufficient for getting the right noise going ... though yeah direct screen access is a tad more convenient
    Carplay is available in another car good o’ mazda3 and that carplay is pretty neat but still very similar to comand (arrows and knobs) when >0mph as touchscreen goes away

    I believe there’s a way to disable the speed restriction on the touch screen for your Mazda. For my Ford, it was pretty easy to do.
