In today’s cars, their radio system is one of choices to be considered when most people buy cars. You don’t need to do anything and just ease if you already had car with a satisfied stereo. I am sure that makes your drive comfortable. Yet for those whose cars just come with a standard stereo allowing them to listen to music and radios and can’t do anything more, they should consider to invest an aftermarket car stereo system.

As an owner of Mazda 3, I never regret replacing its factory stereo for the aftermarket car audio navigation system, which has added more simplicity and convenience in my every drive. Now at this post, I will tell you how I changed the new stereo by myself.

The steps of replacing Mazda 3 factory stereo

Below picture is the original stereo system of my car. To do the replacement, you need to get a screwdriver, a hard card, and keep in mind that must cut off the car power before doing anything.


Step 1, To remove the air outlet: Insert a hard card into the seam of the air outlet, slide the card and use some force to pry the outlet, then you can remove it.


Step 2, Remove the screws that fixed the original stereo unit.

Step 7, If everything of the product functions, then fix well the stereo in the dashboard and install the air outlet back. The whole replacement job is finished. If the new unit doesn’t function, please double check whether the cables are connected correctly.


The reasons to change my Mazda 3s base stereo unit

Actually, I have no special reasons to purchase a new stereo for my car, I also don’t hate using the old stereo. I just wondered if I should make some changes to my car, then I decided to upgrade its stereo at first. Anyway, I love the new Seicane android car stereo system.


With the new stereo, we don’t have to struggle to navigate on our smartphone while driving, the large stereo screen shows everything clearly and take us to everywhere quickly.

We are given more choices for joy as we can use the new stereo to listen to music or radios, watch videos, and surf the Internet and so on. In long drives, these are best ways to ease fatigue and help keep fresh.

I would highly recommended you to add a rear view camera if you are planning to buy a Seicane car stereo navigation system. You can find that most people have troubles in reversing a car, especially when they just look at the rearview mirrors. Installing a rear view camera to the Seicane stereo, you are provided HD parking images when reversing, helping you see the rear situation and park car smoothly.

It turns out that making change is always good! Are you ready to get your new car stereo now?


Thanks to the navigation system, now we will never lose wherever we go. If you often drive the car to everywhere, you need a navigation system you can trust. There is no any problem if your car comes a nice radio navigation system from the factory, but if not, also don’t worry, there are quality aftermarket car radio navigation systems you can opt to upgrade the factory one.  gps-navigation
