happens, reprogram the pairing information to the Bluetooth

®

 unit.

If you pair your phone which has already been paired to your vehicle more than once in
the past, you need to delete “Mazda” on your mobile device. Then, execute the
Bluetooth

®

 search on your mobile device once again, and pair to a newly detected

“Mazda”.

Before you pair your device, make sure that Bluetooth

®

 is “ON”, both on your phone and

on the vehicle.

If Bluetooth

®

-enabled devices are used in the following locations or conditions,

Things You Need to Know

WARNING

Always adjust the audio while the vehicle is
stopped:
Do not adjust the audio control switches
while driving the vehicle. Adjusting the
audio while driving the vehicle is
dangerous as it could distract your
attention from the vehicle operation which
could lead to a serious accident.
Even if the audio control switches are
equipped on the steering wheel, learn to
use the switches without looking down at
them so that you can keep your maximum
attention on the road while driving the
vehicle.

CAUTION

For the purposes of safe driving, adjust the
audio volume to a level that allows you to
hear sounds outside of the vehicle
including car horns and particularly
emergency vehicle sirens.

NOTE

To prevent the battery from being
discharged, do not leave the audio
system on for a long period of time when
the engine is not running.

If a cellular phone or CB radio is used
in or near the vehicle, it could cause
noise to occur from the audio system,
however, this does not indicate that the
system has been damaged.

Do not spill any liquid on the audio
system.

Do not insert any objects, other than CDs,
into the slot.

▼ Radio Reception

AM characteristics

AM signals bend around such things as
buildings or mountains and bounce off the
ionosphere.
Therefore, they can reach longer distances
than FM signals.
Because of this, two stations may
sometimes be picked up on the same
frequency at the same time.

Station 2

Station 1

Ionosphere

FM characteristics

An FM broadcast range is usually about
40―50 km (25―30 miles) from the
source. Because of extra coding needed to
break the sound into two channels, stereo
FM has even less range than monaural
(non-stereo) FM.

FM Station

40—50km 
(25—30 miles)

Signals from an FM transmitter are similar
to beams of light because they do not bend
around corners, but they do reflect. Unlike
AM signals, FM signals cannot travel
beyond the horizon. Therefore, FM
stations cannot be received at the great
distances possible with AM reception.

AM wave

FM wave

FM wave

100—200 km (60—120 miles)

Ionosphere

Atmospheric conditions can also affect
FM reception. High humidity will cause
poor reception. However, cloudy days may
provide better reception than clear days.

Multipath noise

Since FM signals can be reflected by
obstructions, it is possible to receive both
the direct signal and the reflected signal at
the same time. This causes a slight delay
in reception and may be heard as a broken
sound or a distortion. This problem may
also be encountered when in close
proximity to the transmitter.

Reflected wave

Direct

Flutter/Skip noise

Signals from an FM transmitter move in
straight lines and become weak in valleys
between tall buildings, mountains, and
other obstacles. When a vehicle passes
through such an area, the reception
conditions may change suddenly, resulting
in annoying noise.

MX-5_8GF7-EA-17J_Edition2

Weak signal noise

In suburban areas, broadcast signals
become weak because of distance from the
transmitter. Reception in such fringe areas
is characterized by sound breakup.

Strong signal noise

This occurs very close to a transmitter
tower. The broadcast signals are extremely
strong, so the result is noise and sound
breakup at the radio receiver.

Station drift noise

When a vehicle reaches the area of two
strong stations broadcasting at similar
frequencies, the original station may be
temporarily lost and the second station
picked up. At this time there will be some
noise from this disturbance.

Station 2 
88.3 MHz

Station 1 
88.1 MHz

▼ Operating Tips for CD Player

Condensation phenomenon

Immediately after turning on the heater
when the vehicle is cold, the CD or optical
components (prism and lens) in the CD
player may become clouded with
condensation. At this time, the CD will
eject immediately when placed in the unit.
A clouded CD can be corrected simply by
wiping it with a soft cloth. Clouded optical
components will clear naturally in about
an hour. Wait for normal operation to
return before attempting to use the unit.

Handling the CD player

The following precautions should be
observed.

Do not use deformed or cracked CDs.
The disc may not eject resulting in a
malfunction.

Do not use non-conventional discs such
as heart-shaped, octagonal discs, etc.
The disc may not eject resulting in a
malfunction.

If the memory portion of the CD is
transparent or translucent, do not use the
disc.

Transparent

A new CD may have rough edges on its
inner and outer perimeters. If a disc with
rough edges is used, proper setting will
not be possible and the CD player will
not play the CD. In addition, the disc
may not eject resulting in a malfunction.
Remove the rough edges in advance by
using a ball-point pen or pencil as
shown in the following figure. To
remove the rough edges, rub the side of
the pen or pencil against the inner and
outer perimeter of the CD.

When driving over uneven surfaces, the
sound may jump.

CDs bearing the logo shown in the
illustration can be played. No other discs
can be played.

Use discs that have been legitimately
produced. If illegally-copied discs such
as pirated discs are used, the system
may not operate properly.

Be sure never to touch the signal surface
when handling the CDs. Pick up a CD
by grasping the outer edge or the edge
of the hole and the outer edge.

Do not stick paper or tape on the CD.
Avoid scratching the reverse side (the
side without a label). The disc may not
eject resulting in a malfunction.

Dust, finger smudges, and dirt can
decrease the amount of light reflected
from the signal surface, thus affecting
sound quality. If the CD should become
soiled, gently wipe it with a soft cloth
from the center of the CD to the edge.

Do not use record sprays, antistatic
agents, or household spray cleaners.
Volatile chemicals such as benzine and
thinner can also damage the surface of
the CD and must not be used. Anything
that can damage, warp, or fog plastic
should never be used to clean CDs.

The CD player ejects the CD if the CD
is inserted upside down. Also dirty
and/or defective CDs may be ejected.

Do not insert cleaning discs in the CD
player.

Do not insert any disc with a peel-off
seal affixed to it.

This unit may not be able to play certain
CD-R/CD-RWs made using a computer
or music CD recorder due to disc
characteristics, scratches, smudges, dirt,
etc., or due to dust or condensation on
the lens inside the unit.

Storing CDs in the vehicle exposed to
direct sunlight or high temperature may
damage the CD-R/CD-RWs, and make
them unplayable.

CD-R/CD-RW exceeding 700 MB
cannot be played.

This unit may not be able to play certain
discs made using a computer due to the
application (writing software) setting
used. (For details, consult the store
where the application was purchased.)

It is possible that certain text data, such
as titles, recorded on a CD-R/CD-RW
may not be displayed when musical data
(CD-DA) is playing.

The period from when a CD-RW is
inserted to when it begins playing is
longer than a normal CD or CD-R.

Completely read the instruction manual
and cautions for CD-R/CD-RWs.

Do not use discs with cellophane tape
adhering, partially peeled off labels, or
adhesive material exuding from the
edges of the CD label. Also, do not use
discs with a commercially-available
CD-R label affixed. The disc may not
eject resulting in a malfunction.

▼ Operating Tips for MP3

MP3 stands for MPEG Audio Layer 3,
which is standardized voice compression
established by the ISO

*1

 working group

(MPEG).
Use of MP3 allows for audio data to be
compressed to approximately a tenth of
the source data size.
This unit plays files with the extension
(.mp3) as MP3 files.

*

1 International Organization for

Standardization

CAUTION

Do not use an audio file extension on files
other than audio files. In addition, do not
change the audio file extension. Otherwise,
the unit will not recognize the file correctly
resulting in noise or a malfunction.
