How Do I Set Up Apple CarPlay® in My Mazda?

Setting up Apple CarPlay® in your Mazda car or SUV is easy. To get started, you'll first need an iPhone 5 or above, as well as an Apple Lightning® to USB cable or a high-quality, certified USB cable. We recommend updating your iPhone to the latest iOS version to get the best performance. Lastly, make sure that Siri® is enabled. Once these basic requirements are taken care of, you can get started on the Apple CarPlay® setup process:

  1. Connect the Apple Lightning® to USB cable to your iPhone, then to the USB port with the smartphone icon in your vehicle.
  2. The MAZDA CONNECT™ system will then detect your phone. First-time users will need to follow the on-screen prompts on the system's display in order to enable Apple CarPlay®.
  3. Tap "Allow" on the pop-up notification on your iPhone's screen. This will let your Mazda access content on your phone, and is only required when you initially set it up.
  4. Apple CarPlay® will then launch automatically. You can access the Apple CarPlay® features by pressing and holding the Home button on the Commander control. You can easily use the Commander knob to scroll through the available apps and select what you want!

What Are the Apple CarPlay® Features?

Once Apple CarPlay® is set up, you can take advantage of a host of in-car technologies that will make each drive around Peabody and the rest of Massachusetts more enjoyable than the last. Stream your favorite music, find your way to your next destination with Apple Maps, respond to text messages and more.
