Mazda Infotainment

Mazda Connect—Mazda’s exclusive infotainment system—has it all. Equipped with a built-in navigation system, tons of entertainment options, smartphone integration with automatic Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, and much more, Mazda Connect keeps you informed and entertained on the road. It also helps minimize driver distractions by providing drivers with a full menu of hands-free voice command options. Downloading apps on your smartphone or other mobile devices that can connect to your vehicle while you’re on the road can help you get the most out of your high-tech Mazda Connect infotainment system. Are you in need of some inspiration? Here are 3 of the best Mazda infotainment apps out there.

1. MyMazda

Get the most out of your Mazda Connect infotainment system by downloading the free MyMazda app on your smartphone or other mobile devices. The MyMazda app is designed to connect to your Mazda vehicle via the Mazda Connect system in order to help you take better care of your car more easily.

The MyMazda app gives you access to many different resources related to Mazda, Mazda Connect, and your vehicle itself. Via the app, you can access your Mazda vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule and service history to help remind you when to take your car in to get serviced and help you remember which services it needs. You can even schedule a service appointment for your car at your local Mazda dealership through the MyMazda app. MyMazda also gives you exclusive access to special deals, offers, promotions, and coupons that can save you money on scheduled maintenance, repairs, etc. for your car. MyMazda even has built-in safety features, too. It can immediately connect you with roadside assistance in order to get you the help you need as quickly as possible in the case that your car breaks down while you’re on the road.

2. Waze

One of the best features of Mazda Connect is its built-in GPS navigation system. That being said, many Mazda drivers also choose to download additional navigation apps like Waze as well. After all, when it comes to navigation, you can never have too many resources to help you get where you’re going as quickly, safely, and easily as possible. Waze is one of the highest-performing, top-rated navigation apps out there. As an added bonus, it’s completely free. Along with instantly providing you with multiple routes to virtually anywhere you want to go, Waze also offers impressively accurate updates regarding your route. The app monitors current road conditions to help you figure out the most efficient route to take and alert you of construction, traffic jams, stopped cars on the side of the road, police presence on your route, etc.

3. Audible

If you’re someone who spends a lot of time on the road in your Mazda—whether you have a long daily commute, take frequent road trips, etc.—consider downloading Audible to enhance your in-car entertainment options. Audible is an app that gives you access to more than 45,000 audiobooks—including novels, autobiographies, textbooks, you name it—that you can download to your smartphone or other mobile device and play out loud through your Mazda’s speaker system. The app itself is free of charge, but accessing all of the audiobooks that Audible has to offer does require you to pay a low-cost monthly membership fee.
