What is Mazda Mobile Start and how does it work?

The technology available in Mazda vehicles – specifically the 2018 Mazda6 – is taking a huge leap forward with the implementation of smartphone integration into the automaker’s popular midsize sedan. However, nobody should be mistaken that the rest of the automaker’s line available at Gwatney Mazda of Germantown is being left out. So, what is Mazda Mobile Start and how does it work. Like most convenience technology today, Mazda Mobile Start is based in a smartphone app, allowing owners to control certain aspects of their Mazda vehicle from almost anywhere on the planet. If you have any questions about the new technology or if you need little more helping to get the most out of what you have in your driveway, make an appointment to speak with one of our product experts today.

How do I download the app?

The Mazda Mobile Start application is available on iTunes for compatible iPhones and in the Google Play Store for Android devices. Simply download the app like you normally would and follow the app’s instructions

Which vehicles offer this capability?

Mazda wisely figured that people were going to want to use its remote-control application. That is why it is available on all trim grades of the Mazda3, Mazda6, Mazda CX-3, Mazda CX-5 and Mazda CX-9 starting with the 2016 model year. It’s only available on models with the automaker’s SKYACTIV®-Drive automatic transmission.

What does Mazda Mobile Start control?

One of the limitations of aftermarket remote systems is its range. If an owner with a properly equipped Mazda vehicle wants to get into a car that is warmed up or cooled off, they shouldn’t have to worry if they’re close enough. These are the main functions performed by the Mazda Mobile Start app:

  • Remote ignition
  • Lock/unlock the doors
  • Activate climate controls
  • Sound the panic alarm
  • Recall where the vehicle is parked
