Mazda Connect System How To Use / Instruction

Settings

Using navigation is simple and convenient when you configure your system so that it works best for you. As your preferences change, simply change settings to reflect your current needs. Customization is designed to be intuitive, so making adjustments is easy and convenient.

Using Your Navigation System Safely

It is important that you look at the display only when it is safe to do so. If you are the driver of the vehicle, we recommend that you operate your navigation system before you start your journey. Plan the route before your departure, obey all traffic signs, and stop if you need to change the route. If you deviate from the recommended route, your navigation system automatically adjusts.

Map Customization

GPS information

The navigation system helps you find your way to your destination with the built-in GPS receiver, however, the Mazda navigation system does not transmit your GPS position and others cannot track you. When first using the application, you have the opportunity to accept collection of usage information and GPS logs that may be used for improving the application and the quality and coverage of maps. The data is processed anonymously; no one will be able to track any personal information.

Destinations

It’s easy to find the right destination when you have a variety of convenient options. Choose a place of interest, a location on the map, one of your Favourites, a destination from your history, or enter an address, postcode or co-ordinate. Through customization and settings, you can configure the system to operate optimally for your individual needs.
