2012 Mazda Mazda3: The Upside To The Little Navigation Screen

May 03, 2012

 2012 Mazda Mazda3

We've covered the 3's navigation system before, most recently with Josh's Is It Worth It? post. There is one thing I really do like about it, though: it's up and out of the way, and that leaves plenty of room for the audio controls. These are great. They're easily within in arm's reach, and the buttons are big and identifiable. And I certainly use these a lot more than I do a navigation system.

With so many cars these days having complex controls and/or touchscreens, this is a refreshing contrast.
