Live Traffic in 2016 Mazdas
While Mazda Connect confirms that Live Traffic was originally designed into the current Navteq navigation system in its 2016 vehicles, it also confirms that it was disabled for a reason they choose not to explain. This lack of capability forces current Mazda owners to rely on smartphones for live traffic information. This is not only a major inconvenience, but also a dangerous distraction. Considering the price of the system, this should have been included. The navigation systems in older models of Mazda's vehicles provided not only live traffic, but also audible delay and detour warnings. Owners who rely on this service on a daily basis are now left with a system that is basically useless. Mazda Connect's explanation that they are "working on it" and it "might" be available in the future is not acceptable. As 2016 Mazda owners we demand that this service be reinstalled NOW!
