A few days ago Mazda finally put a date to their coming soon when talking about Apple CarPlay (and Android Auto). At least in Europe. it will be available as an option on new vehicles as well as a retrofit option for all current Mazdas with MZD Connect beginning August 6 2018. According to the German press release the prices are €300 as option for new vehicles, and €240 for a retrofit kit (excluding labor). Read more in the official Mazda press release here I, for one, cannot wait to have it installed in my 2017 Mazda 3. It is the only thing I am missing in my other than that fully specced car.
