On my UK CX-30 when running Mazda Connect with Android Auto enabled but not active, if I press the steering wheel talk button the system switches from Mazda Connect to Android Auto. I would have expected the talk button to be serviced by Mazda Connect; and only by Android Auto if that had already been selected previously from Mazda Connect.

I do not think it should work like this, if it does it would seem to be a poor design.
Has anyone else used Android Auto and seen this feature?

Mazda Connect Version: 10042
Android Auto: 5.6.603444
Samsung Galaxy S8 Android Version 9 – Pie

There is something about this in the manual. It is the same if apple car play is used.

Thanks for the info, is this the text you refer to:

Voice recognition activation
When the talk/pick-up button on the audio remote control switch is pressed, the
voice recognition top screen is displayed.
NOTE
While Apple CarPlay or Android Auto™ is connected, Siri or Android Auto™ voice
recognition is activated.
At this time Mazda Connect voice recognition is not activated.

Which seems to imply that just having them connected, but presumably not active, means that they take over the funcion form Mazda Connect even without explicitly running.

Yes. That is what I was referring to.

For me this is a huge plus since Google Assistant is so capable and Mazda Connect so limited.
