Mazda Australia has previously confirmed that it would be offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for models sold in the country, and that existing customers can opt for a retrofit for the MZD Connect system.

Now, CarAdvice reports that the cost of the retrofit will be AUD494.98 (RM1,461.23), according to a leaked dealer bulletin obtained by the publication. The source also detailed the costs of each component should customers want to purchase them separately, including the hub module (AUD202.28 or RM597.15) and cable harness (AUD101.12 or RM298.52)

In both Australia and Malaysia, the CX-9 is the first model to come with support for both iOS and Android car interfaces. The updated three-row SUV was introduced in our country earlier this month, where it also gained a 360-degree camera and cooling function for the front ventilated seats.

For now, it is not certain if Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be added to Mazda models sold in Malaysia in the future, or if a retrofit option will be made available to current owners. Interested?
