What is Bluetooth Audio?

Bluetooth audio outline

By programming portable audio devices equipped with the Bluetooth communication function to the vehicle's Bluetooth unit, you can listen to music or audio recorded on these audio devices from the vehicle's speakers.

After programming, operate the audio system's control panel or the navigation system to play/stop the music or audio.

CAUTION:
the Bluetooth audio system while Always program audio devices to
the Bluetooth audio system while the vehicle is stopped.

audio devices can be used, consult Because only specified Bluetooth
audio devices can be used, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer when purchasing or changing devices.

Bluetooth audio devices which correspond to specified Bluetooth versions and profiles can be Bluetooth-connected to the vehicle's Bluetooth unit, however, even among these devices are ones which cannot be Bluetoothconnected or have limited
functionality. Each device to be used with the vehicle's Bluetooth unit needs to be checked individually for compatibility.

Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer concerning device compatibility.

Applicable Bluetooth specification

Ver. 2.0 or higher

Audio profile

- A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) Ver. 1.0.

- AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) Ver. 1.0.

A2DP is a profile which transmits only audio to the Bluetooth unit. If your Bluetooth audio device corresponds only to A2DP, but not AVRCP, you cannot operate it using the control panel of the vehicle's audio or navigation systems. In this case, the Bluetooth audio device can be operated by controlling the device itself, the same as when a portable audio system without the Bluetooth communication function is connected to the AUX terminal.

NOTE:
- It may not be possible to play a Bluetooth audio device if it is placed anywhere transmission is compromised, such as inside a metal container or the trunk. Move the Bluetooth audio device to a location where transmission is possible.

- Battery consumption of Bluetooth audio devices is higher while Bluetoothconnected.

- If a non-Bluetooth device is to be used, a commercially-available Bluetooth adapter is required. When playing an audio device with a Bluetooth adapter installed, programming of the audio device may not be possible or audio may not be heard from the vehicle speakers if the connection of the adapter and the device is poor. If this happens, check if the Bluetooth adapter is properly connected.

Bluetooth audio device programming

Any Bluetooth audio device must be programmed to the vehicle's Bluetooth unit before it can be listened to over the vehicle's speakers.

A maximum of seven devices including Bluetooth audio devices and hands-free mobile phones can be programmed to one vehicle.

NOTE:
- Always perform Bluetooth audio device programming while the vehicle is stopped.

- If a Bluetooth device has already been programmed to the vehicle as a hands-free mobile phone, it does not need to be programmed again when using the device as a Bluetooth audio device. Conversely, it does not need to be programmed again as a hands-free mobile phone if it has already been programmed as a Bluetooth audio device.

- The transmission range of a Bluetooth audio device is about 10 m (32 ft).

Therefore, if there is another Bluetooth audio device within a 10 m (32 ft) radius of the vehicle, the device may be identified and programmed instead.

- Device registration can also be done using voice recognition.

Concerning the operation of a Bluetooth audio device itself, refer to its instruction manual.

Some Bluetooth audio devices have PIN codes (four digits). Refer to the audio device's instruction manual because the programming procedure differs depending on whether it has a PIN code or not.
