    OE GPS has some advanges for a whole lot more money.
    - takes speed input
    - take steering angle (from gyro sensor) input
    With both, the OE GPS can extrapolate your current position as much as possible in the event/at the locations when SAT signals are not sufficient (such as in tunnels, in parking structure, on forest trails, among tall buildings, etc.)
    Agree, it is very expensive. If you take out the extras that come with the Assist package, the GPS costs about $800. (backup camera costs a lot also if you ask dealers to install one for you - even just the mirror type). The OE camera costs about $300-400 from dealers.

    In addition, the cheapest map update for OE GPS is $199, while your portable GPS' maps can be updated for much less money ($49?).
  • Hello,
    Does anyone know if it is difficult to install roof rails on this car. Does it require anything special? I see 3 closed plugs on each side on the roof. I am thinking to buy them and install myself.
    Any good web site to get them?

    Thanks in advance

    Very very very very easy. Anyone who can operate a screw driver can do it in 10-20 minutes. Watch out for the covers. Don't break the tabs on the inside when putting them on. It would be nice if you have a torqued screw driver, but it is really not mandatory.

    I bought mine from (a Mazda dealer) with free shipping (which is important since those things are long)
    Compare the price with also. Sometimes one is cheaper than the other if you factor in the S&H.
  • Does anyone know where I can find the installation instructions for the 2010 CX-9 fog light installation.

    I have the 2007-2009 version, but I'd like to see the 2010 one.

    Go into any Mazda dealer and ask for them, they will print them out for you at no charge or you can call and ask them to fax them to you.

    2010 or else.
    You need to take the bumper off.
    That makes it complicated.

    And, think about the fact that you will have to put everything back on.
  • Taking the bumper off doesn't really bother me, I can do it. And yes, I can put it back on correctly.

    I just wanted to know if the 2010 is any different than the other years.

    The dealer I bought the car from, told me it would cost around $700, installed, for fog lights. Since the parts are $599.23 (list), that's not a lot for labor charges. So maybe the 2010 has more pre-installed (such as the wiring harnesses?) than the other years?

    For perspective, one dealer wanted $450 for roof rails, yep $200 to install them!

    Parts are about $490 (for both fog lights) here. (free S&H)
    There are other places that go even lower in price.
    I think near $460 is possible.

    If you can install them, go right ahead.
    Mazda accessories usually come with installation instructions.
    Not sure about "parts".

    So I've had my all weather mats now for 11 months and the driver's front mat has generated a hole where my heel rests while my foot is on the accelerator. I called a Mazda dealer because I know that most genuine Mazda Parts/Accessories have a 12 month warranty...BZZZ wrong, not the mats, according to the parts advisor on the phone Mazda does not cover them because it is a "normal wear item". I am sorry, but I have had all weather mats on a previous Honda Accord and a Nissan Frontier, that by the way, saw many many trips to the desert and offroading trips and neither generated a hole on them. I think its Mazda's poor choice of choosing a company to make these all weather mats that are made of this soft compound instead of real rubber or at least a more durable material.. :mad: Either way I am SOL...
  • Have a 2010 CX-9 with GPS. Big waste of $$$$$ It cannot find a Home Depot in the three statres I tried. Also the night feature is already gone bad in on 2000 miles. My garmin at $200 is so far superior. It is impossible use when moving. You need to stop to put in a new destination unless it is a POI of which the selection is scarce. I tried to find a Costco near where I live in the unit and it sends me 25 south when there are three much closer. Save your money.
  • Hi all,
    I just got a rear view camera kit installed in my sport. Very dumb of mazda not to prewire the car for the camera. Anyway the installation instructions talk about routing the video wire from the front to the back lift gate. To get to the back lift gate, the wire has to be routed through a rubber grommet at the top. Now the instructions warn about not removing the rubber grommet but rather using a fish tape to route through the rubber grommet hole without removing it. I guess to make installation easier, the dealer installer removed the rubber grommet and put it back. Unfortunately the installation instructions were right and the rubber grommet did not form a tight seal when the rubber grommet was put back. Does anyone know how to put the wiring rubber grommet back once its been pried off? Its at the back of the roof and all the rain water flows over it so any gaps will make rain water to get inside the rear gate.
    Any ide how to fix this? The dealer is still trying to figure out how to fix this. Would a new rubber grommet fix this? but that would require removal of a lot of wires which probably will cause more problems. Can I just use a bit of silicone glue?
    Thanks in advance!
  • The fact that the navigation system still runs off a DVD rom whould have given you a hint :)
    DVD rom based nav systems are so 2005

    Silicone the perimeter of the rubber grommet.
  • "Silicone the perimeter of the rubber grommet. "
    Thats what I was thinking too. Any particular brand you would recommend? It has to be flexible and has to stick to car paint and the rubber grommet. There are just too many silicone sealants available in the market!

    I have a 2010,cx9 and checked everywhere to find a siruis radio that would work, I was told I good get a aftermarket and attach it somewhere. I wanted the Mazda radio.. I made a deal at the dealer for the radio and the install. I paid @90.00 for the radio and kit toi install and 285.00 for installation.. They have to take the dash completely apart... The sport has the SAT button already on the dash.... I love it, it works great, plus you get 6 months free service from mazda.
    The vehicle has been great so far. I also went and had a aftermarket side molding put on and a trailer hidge....

    My 2010 mazda sport has cloth front heated seats and I would like to know if anyone who has one have had to clean there seats and if there is a special cleaner because of the heated seat.. Are the heat elements protected so you can just get a cleaner or is there something recommended for them. Thanks, T
