Compatibility - 2013 Mazda 3 w/Bose System

Post by squeaky369 » Wed May 02, 2018 8:53 pm

I'm looking at getting the Maestro RR with an Alpine ILX-207 for my 2013 Mazda with Bose.

However, unlike my other vehicles that I've used the Maestro RR in, it's not listing that it will retain the factory amplifier. I just wanted to double check before I purchased anything, does the RR (or any iDataLinks) support retention of the factory amplifier?


Thanks.

At this time, we aren't able to retain bose in this vehicle. For now, we just do steering wheel controls and add the gauges feature.

Well snap...

I'm guessing since the vehicle is discontinued and it's been 5 years, there's no chance of receiving support, is there.

Is there a particular reason why it's not supported? PAC has a model that will retain all functions, but I've always used iDataLink, and would prefer to continue using it.

It's not supported because we don't have a full t-harness solution for Mazda. At this time, we just offer a hardwired solution, which isn't as fully integrated as we need to do retention of more involved things, like Bose.
