Metra AX-MAZUSB USB Adapter for Mazda

Crutchfield customer from Christiansbrg, VA on 5/9/2018

2013 Mazda CX-5

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

All the reviews are true. This harness does nothing. I don't even get power to my factory USB port on my 2013 CX-5. Crutchfield refunded me for the part, but I advise you just not to bother to begin with.

My fault for not reading these reviews first. I trusted that what Crutchfield was selling me world work and described. But I can confirm, only works for charging. Not data. 2014 Mazda 6. I will be returning this.

Metra AX-MAZUSB USB Adapter for Mazda

John from Worcester, MA on 12/9/2017

2012 Toyota Corolla

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Will only charge but not pass data because the accessory wire passes through the Mazda factory Bluetooth module and that module is disabled when the factory radio is removed thus disabling the accessory pass through from the connector behind the dash to the usb accessory connector in the center console.

Why is Crutchfield selling this?

James from Hollywood, FL on 11/23/2017

2011 Chevrolet Equinox

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered the entire install kit for my Mazda 6, assuming the tech people who put it all together had done their research. I was wrong. As you can see from all of the reviews here and around the rest of the internet and forums, this part may fit in Mazda's, but it does not work. Next time I will not blindly trust the suggested install items. There is no reason this product is still being sold other than to let Crutchfield put a checkbox next to "retains USB ports" for new head units.

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work on Mazda's

Crutchfield customer from West Palm Beach, FL on 11/5/2017

2013 Mazda CX-5

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Didn't work. Installed the JVC ILX107 in my 2013 Mazda CX-5, and out of everything, this was the simplest connection/adapter, but didn't work... Ended up running the usb extension cable that came with the stereo to the glove box...

13-UP MAZDA USB ADAPTOR

Rosario from Sunnyvale, CA on 4/24/2017

2014 Mazda 6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It would only charge my phone, and was unable to read any data on it from the headunit. Kept getting a read error, even when I set the phone to storage mode. It works if you want to use the USB port as a charging port only.

Mark from Kansas City, MO on 8/22/2016

2015 Mazda 6

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Does not work on 2015 Mazda 6. Enough voltage to charge a phone but does not carry data to the head unit (for Apple Carplay on a DDX6902S for example). Plugged iPhone 6S directly into Kenwood USB and everything worked properly. Disappointed to say the least.

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on 9/12/2016
Thanks to Mark's review, our Vehicle Integration Buyer, Darren, suggested we include a note to connect smartphones directly to all Apple CarPlay and Android Auto receivers without the use of vehicle-specific adapters. Our vehicle research team is also digging into these adapters further to determine compatibility.

Q
do you have any supporting data that indicates this with work on my CX-5? I have seen a number of reviews (not on your site) that question whether it does. Ready to order a Kenwood DNX572BH from you but need the issue regarding the USB port in the console resolved before I begin installation! Thanks. JD
