Marsden, it works with my girlfriend's Pixel XL running 8.1. Glad it's working for you now.
Bluelinelife, I'm not sure where you are getting 5.3 from, Mazda Tweaks is on version 2.7.9. Once you install this program on your computer (file is like ~250MB if I remember correctly), you get to choose what tweaks to install to the infotainment. Follow this link: https://mazdatweaks.com/
My phone just got the May 1 security update that is alleged to fix the screen lock issue with Moto x4. Will report.
Had had some issues with turning screen lock back on after getting AA working. Not sure what the deal was with that, but took screen lock back off and was able to get working again. I like the screen lock because apparently it's needed for fingerprint security, which I think my bank made use of. After turning screen lock off, I had to completely set up fingerprint security again, which is a pain.
It always irks me to pay for all sorts of hardware and then have it locked down for what software you can use on it: isn't it your hardware? I have an Android phone and Ubuntu Linux on my computer for that reason, too.
May 1 security update seems to have fixed my Moto x4 issues.
My next concern is making changes once the mazdatweaks stuff is loaded; tried it this morning and got a "data restored" message in mazdatweaks format, but the changes I wanted were not made. I kind of want to remove at least the Mazda start up logo before I take the car in for the first gratis oil change at Toyota ...
Just FYI, THERE IS a way to get rid of the Mazda logo at bootup so the dealer doesn't notice.
The only one I have at bootup is the one that looks like a sideways futuristic car glowing (looks like a Mazda6 to me, but who knows). Everything else looks stock, besides when you click on APPS you can see the Android Auto option.
does the phone have to be connected via usb? I just installed AA to my car, and have a moto x4 as well. I just briefly messed with it, will take a better look tomorrow, but I wasn't able get it to connect without the usb cable.
I'm not sure if it does need to be connected by USB, giacomo. I generally always have my phone connected by USB to keep it charged, anyway. I think there may have been a time I was trying to change my installation, and my phone started AA because of bluetooth connection, but I can't swear to it. I'll test out bluetooth only today.
