#5 of 198 Re: Mazda CX-7 Bose Problems [jdtomori70]

I have the same problem with my 2009 mazda 6 with Bose centerpoint pkg.
The sound is muted for anywhere between 30 sec and 4 minutes after starting the car. with me the lights were active and all functions would display but no sound would come out also. I am waiting to speak to a service tech about the issue. It seems to be cold weather related as it was in the single digits today and took almost 5 min for the sound to kick in. The average is about 2 minutes though. It won't be warm around here for a couple of months but I'm not counting on the weather to solve this. I am also looking for answers and a fix.

Anyone know how to disable the nav safety feature that prevents you from entering destinations while the vehicle is moving?
#10 of 198 Turning Off (suspending) the NAV's Voice Command
Jul 27, 2006 (6:56 am)
This applies to model's with the Tech Package.
The owner's manual seems to indicate that the Voice Command can be suspended. Sometimes, I want to use the steering column's MUTE button for just that...mute. However, with Nav installed, the mute button activates Voice Command. The owner's manual indicates that if I press the Voice Command button aka Mute for .7 seconds continually, then Voice Command is suspended. No such luck. The audio system is still broadcasting music. If I press the Voice Command button again, the audio goes mute for a few seconds, but the NAV system interprets the silence as an unrecognized command.
The owner's manual is clearly wrong or poorly written or I'm just flat-out doing something wrong.

What they mean is that you can cancel the current voice command input. If you press the voice command button and then decide not to enter a command, you can either say "Cancel" or press the button and hold it for .7 seconds.
#12 of 198 Nav point of interest database limited?
Aug 04, 2006 (8:51 pm)
Before the CX-7, I used the portable Garmin C330. Navteq provides the database for both systems. With the garmin, if I wanted to find a WalMart near me, I just typed in Walmart and it would list all of the Walmarts starting from the closest one. If I try this with the CX-7, I get only a couple of listing and they could be any where within the U.S, but none near me. It would list a couple 50 to 100 miles from me.
The best I can determine is that the CX-7 only list shopping centers or Malls, not individual stores like the Garmin. I just want to know if the CX-7 data base is that much more limited or is it a Software issue or is it the way I am using it. I have been trying to get an answer from both Mazda and Navteq. They both referred me to the other . At least Mazda is still trying to figure it out. BTW, I do have the Nav set for CA and NV. The garmin only has an internal 2.5 GB hard drive and the CX-7 could use the full 4.7 GB of the DVD so it could have even more data than the Garmin, but I wonder if Mazda skimped licensed a cheaper more limited version.

I'm beginning to wonder about that as well. I have an Eclipse AVN 2524 in my Santa Fe and it can find many entries based on user input. Not so with the CX7 NAV.
#14 of 198 Bluetooth for Mazda CX-7
Sep 06, 2006 (5:39 am)
I agree that this wonderful SUV should include the Bluetooth option but... I order the Parrot CK3200 but could not get someone to installed for me. Bestbuy told me I need to contact Parrot... Did any body have a solution? Is any way to get Bluetooth to the CX-7?
