Mazda Connected Services technologies announced

MyMazda app forms part of broader Mazda Connected Services suite, due locally within weeks

22 Mar 2024

MAZDA Australia has launched an all-new app incorporating what it says are a host of convenient, useful, and safety-enhancing features for Mazda drivers.


Available now via the App Store and Google Play, the MyMazda app forms part of the wider Mazda Connected Services suite rollout, which debuts on the latest Mazda MX-5 due in showrooms in the coming weeks.


Mazda says the app will initially offer a total of eight Mazda Connected Services functions, with a planned future expansion of the services to include more connected features on a wider range of Mazda vehicles.


The MyMazda app can however be linked to all Mazda vehicles straight away with just a few taps, regardless of whether the vehicle features Connected Services or not, giving owners easy access to a comprehensive Owner’s Manual search function, an online service booking tool, prior service history and integration with Roadside Assistance.


All 2024 Mazda MX-5 models are set to arrive as standard with eSIM technology, as well as an emergency SOS button integrated into the windscreen frame between the sun visors. In the event of a collision, Connected Services automatically connects the vehicle to the emergency services 24 hours a day, sending an ambulance if required.


The button can also be used manually and is within easy reach of occupants.


Like similar systems offered by other brands, the system also offers a stolen vehicle assistance function – also available 24/7 – allowing users to request real-time tracking of their vehicle’s location to be shared with police.


Vehicle status and ‘health’ is also monitored, and owners are notified via a push message in the MyMazda app if a change in vehicle status is logged.


Other functions available remotely (via the app) include activation of the central locking system and a light flashing function for easier vehicle locating. Both may be controlled via a smartphone or Apple Watch.


Similarly, the vehicle locator function shows the whereabouts of the car using smartphone mapping, which Mazda says is particularly useful in large car parks.


The driver alert and parental control features notify the user when their vehicle is driven above a certain speed or outside a pre-determined curfew.


Lastly, a predefined ‘geofencing’ area can be set within the app to alert the owner when the vehicle enters and exits a designated location.


Mazda Australia says the new MyMazda app can also serve as an additional communication tool, alerting customers via push notification to important updates, such as recalls and service reminders.


“Already renowned for our commitment to Jinba Ittai, we are now going one further with an array of genuinely valuable services that create a deeper sense of connection between drivers and their vehicle, even when they’re not behind the wheel,” said Mazda Australia head of digital innovation Callan Jolly.


“Mazda Connected Services and the MyMazda app are another tangible benefit of the highly compelling ownership proposition that our Mazda models represent.”
