I have 2 questions about the CX-30 I was hoping someone who knows more about the car than I do could answer as follows:
(1) Does the Mazda Navigation system use a password system for your home address? (Garmin, for security purposes, requires you to enter a password if your current location does not equal your home location.)
(2) In the online Mazda CX-30 brochure, they show that all trim levels have LED lights front and rear. In the Premium trim level, Mazda list as a difference from the Preferred trim level "signature LED lighting". Does anyone know what the difference is between LED lighting and "signature LED lighting"?
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. Stay safe...

1. No.

2. The Signature lighting just adds a couple more strips of accent LED illumination in rear.

Thanks for your prompt response...straight from an owner! I thought the Garmin security methodology was a good security precaution (bummer Mazda doesn't do something like that). The Signature lighting sounds very cool...
Thanks again...

When setting my home location in other cars I have never submitted my full address. Just use something nearby such as a golf course or supermarket.

The lights in the Premium trim are also adaptive, turning as you go into a curve.

The signature lights also add a ring to the front headlights and stripes on the side for them.

This video goes over the differences in great detail of the lights.

The U.K. model has separate cornering lights but the adaptive part is nothing to do with cornering but everything to do with dimming the headlights around other vehicles. So, for example if I’m following a car along a dark road I’m still on high beam and everything is brilliantly lit apart from the car I’m following. The area of the target car is dimmed. If, at the same time, a vehicle is approaching their area is dimmed but I still have high beam between the cars as well as both curbs and above the cars. You set the switch to adaptive and never touch the light stalk again.

Thinking about it... I don’t think the US gets adaptive lights as they’re not permitted.

2020 Premium does have adaptive headlights in the US.

My wife's last car was a UK Mazda CX-3 and it had adaptive FLS as standard but adaptive lights as part of the optional Safety Pack. The A-FLS were lights that moved up, down, left and right rather than the beams being adaptive. The optional Safety Pack adaptive lights were the same as I described above. Might be worth checking that for US cars but I believed adaptive lights (not A-FLS) were not permitted in the US. Either way, I’d be interested to know as it might be a first for a US spec car.
Personally, I’d never buy another car again unless it had adaptive lights as I described above because they are astonishing. Definitely bizarre following a car and you’re on high beam (blue light on dash) and your lighting up everywhere apart from the other car. I’ve even helped, occasionally, the car in front who is on dipped beam due to oncoming cars but I’m still on high beam lighting the way for him.

Canada gets adaptive lights (not to be confused with adaptive front lighting system) but not the US? I thought you guys followed similar specs.

Yes I do have adaptive front LED headlights. The top trim level here in Canada like mine has cylinder deactivation as well .. trim levels here in Canada have only three options as in the USA it's different the trim levels.
