I have looked at troubleshooting the same issue online but no real answers are coming out of my findings. The last time took a few tries to get connected to the server and download the update file. Not sure if there is already a topic on this. The Road Trip was the first opportunity to rely on it. All my addresses are in my Garmin.
What firmware are you running? I ordered on first day of holiday weekend and it was here the day after the holiday. I brought my to the dealer to have this issue looked into. Love the nav feature - it makes me feel confident getting where I need to go. Just like your laptop, smartphone, or tablet, infotainment systems can go through periods of on screen lag or freezing. Armed with new found confidence with the SatNav Demon we followed the instructions ….
You can find it in the menu, or you can just turn the volume up during an announcement. Not familiar with the 2014. The fulfillment of my order from Med Center was exemplary. I have contacted the Mazda by phone and the asked me to contact the dealer. No muss no fuss it works perfect. The navigation system works very well and gives me, the well known speed bunny, the opprtunity to see the speed limit sign turn red when I drive too fast! Today while driving home , the voice guidance did not work.
The steering wheel needs to be reasonably straight, if you turn the wheel significantly when pulling up i-stop wont cut the engine out. Ok I thought again …. Plus I really only use it for freeway driving, when I'm not making turns every 5 minutes. If I move the screen up, and press the Open button it does close it. The nav system is working perfectly. Yes, but you would need to look at the display to see the visual indicator. For example, if there's two lanes exiting the highway, it will show one lane in grey and one in white, so you'll know that both work but the white one is better.
I was in a parking garage, maybe there was interference with the satellite reception, sure enough, once I exited the garage it recalculated and updated to 15 min. Only got me a 8. The screen can get a little cluttered at times, but overall I'm pleased. I want my exposure to the dealer as limited as possible. I smell a scam, the antenna is not an optional item.
It does have to be all the way to zero. It's that 10% that really drives me nuts. When travelling in regional areas the SatNav Demon indicated speed limits were often very much different from those speed limits obviously long posted on the roads. Also, if you got the air conditioning on maximum settings i-stop wont work. The Japanese car maker announced the new six-cylinder powertrains during an investor conference.
When I push the start button to turn on the engine, the navigation screen is supposed to turn on at all times, but I have had about 3-4 instances where the Navigation screen did not turn on at all when I start the engine. Could a fuse have shorted or something? Being as Google Maps currently mutes all music to about 10% when giving directions, I don't think I mind it muting the driver-side speaker entirely. If you need the sd card for your gps this is it. Not certain if you can set an audio alert as I haven't tried. Whether I mute through the nav settings or mute during voice guidance, my speaker does not have the music mute problem.

Although the easy-to-use touchscreen is capable of allowing you to enter new destination addresses, it may be useful to know how to enter an address on Mazda Navigation using voice controls. This alone is worth having it to me. Don't buy any car without Android Auto or Apple Car play. I would say it is reliable about 90% of the time. The car was built in 2014 and I bought it a few months ago.
Can I go into settings and tweak the settings to remedy this problem with the navigation screen not turning on? First week and no problems so far, installed card, started my car, and was up and running in a few minutes. Much better than google maps. I took it in to the dealer. The screen presentation is a bit different from other mapping devices Garmin, google etc. It will look like a flag with a + symbol next to it.
