Android Auto is one of those things that I would love to have in a new vehicle purchase, but I won't be going and spending the upwards of $1000 which is required to add it to my current vehicle. Android Auto had seemed to slow down as we haven't really heard much about it, but car manufacturers are still adding it as a feature in new models. Mazda is the latest to announce this for upcoming cars. They have not given an ETA so far, and we don't yet know which models will receive the upgrade.
A Mazda spokesperson Jacob Brown has also mentioned that Android Auto and CarPlay may be retroactively available on all Mazda Connect systems as a minimal hardware addition. This means the new system might be available for models going back to 2014.
