My dealership neglected to install the navigation chip, I called and got that immediately but did any of you get a separate hard copy manual for Mazda Connect? The owner's manual does not cover all the details. I can see an online version, but that is hardly convenient when you are in your car.

I also noticed that start/stop did not work until the SD card was installed (Istop is not switched off). It only did this once, at other traffic stops, it did not engage.

Lot to learn, this is only my 2nd day.

Not sure that the SD card is required for i-Stop to work. As per the spec deck, the turbo models all include i-Stop but only the top PPT trim includes navigation (meaning includes the SD card, although other trims are "navigation ready").

My experience with the CX-50's i-stop is that it kicks in less frequently than my other half's Subaru. There are certain conditions that must be met as per the manual, like the car's interior can't be too much hotter than the current AC setting, etc. I find it never activates on shorter local drives like for food shopping, etc. But, it is much less intrusive than the Subaru version when it does activate.

I've been reading up on the logic and that's what it was. Being much cooler this morning, i-stop was engaging much more frequently. Makes sense and does not seem to bother me at all.
