Apologies for asking this but as a new Mazda owner/forum member I thought I would seek some advice please. I have purchased (collecting Friday) a 20012 Mazda 3  1.6 Tamura petrol with 20,000 miles. Never owned a Mazda previously or even sat in one!. I love the look of the car and it is in outstanding condition, the one thing missing is a sat nav and Bluetooth. As an oldie I don't need state of the art stuff, I would just like to ask if you can retro fit a system replacing the original radio and advice on where to buy a semi decent replacement and if I had to pay someone to fit it an idea of what I should be paying please?.
Thanks in anticipation of any advice.

You can do it,

I had this fitted with the various adaptors for steering wheel controls and face plate for 500 quid..unit itself is 300.



It's a pioneer DA230 has Dab, Bluetooth and nav via android auto or CarPlay (via a compatible phone).

There's cheaper available but it sounds good and works well.
