2009 Mazda 6 i Grand Touring: Full-Tilt Screen

October 09, 2009

mazda 6 nav screen tilts

I know we've had a lot of posts featuring the navigation screen lately, but I discovered this morning that it's possible to tilt the screen in our Mazda 6. And I'm not talking about the acrobatic tilt and swivel to load CDs into the audio system. This tilt seems useful in avoiding glare on the screen itself. At least, that's all I can think of.

Here's how it works. You push the physical "display" button below the bottom right hand of the screen, and the display screen controls come up (click through to the jump to see the control screen). There are two virtual buttons on the bottom left corner of that screen to control tilt angle. Hit the left one and the physical screen stays flush with the case (see above left). Hit the right one and the bottom of the physical screen tilts ever so slightly up (about half an inch or so, see above right).

Any other ideas why this might be useful?
