Is our Sat-navs based on Tom Tom?
Pretty sure your shape car should be Garmin.  The TomTom version was fitted to the Mazda 6 and CX-5 until late 2014.  The TomTom one, although a touch screen, has knobs on the stereo front including a volume knob.  The Garmin one is a full touch screen without knobs on it, and has a volume knob next to the commander knob.

I've just got/sold my Mazda 3 / A Little Premature
« Last post by spanish on June 22, 2018, 10:56:52 PM »
Well! Very slightly premature, but today I've finally put a deposit on a used Mazda. Had a go in a Sport Nav, opted for the SE-L though, I didn't feel that excited by the sport extras. Also, for some reason, I found starting and stopping in that one a bit jumpy for some reason. So, next weekend I'm due to pick up a 2017 SE-L in deep blue, by the look of it. Which is a very deep blue, I could easily have said it was black at a glance.

Coventry Mazda seem to be doing quite well so far, I was there a good few hours and never wanted for attention. I felt a bit bad about the guy who was getting shouted at on the shop floor about the gap that the car I took out for a drive came out of, though.

I normally end up on DAB by accident due to the weird set up of the Mazda radio controls on the Gen 3. My area certainly isn't great for reception, but even when I do get a good signal, it's just not worth bothering with. It sounds like it's coming through an old sock. No sharpness.

That's the high compression leading to loss of fidelity at the low and especially the high end of the frequency spectrum, rather like the old 'Dolby' noise reduction systems on cassette tape players.

I see, I wondered how it was possible. I tried comparing it to current models but apparently not that one.

Wash, rinse, claybar then cleaner fluid followed by wax,
The clay bar will remove all the air debris and such from the top of the paint without damaging it.
I'm mad enough to use Swisswax, which I also used on my previous car, a Skoda Superb which after 15 years still looked like brand new.

That's the new Mazda 6. The new 3 is rumoured to be unveiled at the  Los Angeles  motor show later in the year but Auto express claim to have exclusive pictures of the new 3.
