Cars and their entertainment systems have come a long way over the past few decades. In years past, most of us would have had to make do with your basic AM/FM radio dial and a CD player, which of course was a luxury at one time when tape decks were most prevalent in cars. Nowadays, however, people crave more options with what entertainment they can bring with them to their cars, especially now in the advent of internet radio, popular portable music players, and more mainstream AI systems. The Mazda brand has adapted to these changing times through the Mazda CONNECT™ Infotainment system, bringing you more applications and more compatibility with media that you like, along with some important features that you may need on the roads ahead. Let us take a look at what the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment system has to offer, this system is available on all new Mazda models in our new inventory at Dolan Mazda in Reno, NV.

Technology to Inform and Entertain!

The MAZDA CONNECT™ system blends old with new in the features it utilizes. Most Mazda models feature an intuitive seven-inch touchscreen though many new Mazda3 models offer an updated 8.8-inch touchscreen; both of these screens feature a Multifunction Commander control system and voice commands for seamless and distraction-free transitioning between apps. Aiding this distraction-free efficiency is the strategic placement of the infotainment center touchscreen which is situated near eye-level along with the multi-information display, so you never have to divert your eyes from the road!

All Mazda models feature Bluetooth® hands-free phone capability in addition to the standard AM/FM radio dial. However, as part of the infotainment system, you will notice some other applications you might be able to enjoy, such as Pandora®, Aha™, and Stitcher™ internet radio, if you are a subscriber to these applications. The infotainment system also features E911 automatic emergency notification, for emergencies, and SMS text message audio delivery and reply, so that you may use the touchscreen and voice commands to reply to instant messages without diverting your attention from the road. Now, if these features are to your liking, then you will enjoy all of the new Mazda models we have to offer at Dolan Mazda. However, if you are looking for a little extra something to get the bass pumping in your car, then you may appreciate the prestigious trim levels of our new Mazda models which add on such extra features as:
