I’ve tried to disable the heads up display using the proper method in the . Although the display turns off at the moment, as soon as I restart the car, the display turns back on. When I brought this up to a salesman I called he just told me to turn the angle of the display as far down as possible and dim the brightness down. That’s ridiculous because the disable function should stay off unless I reactivate it. Am I missing something?

No your not missing anything. it's like the iStop function which you have to turn off everytime you start the car. Which I normally forget to do until the engine turns off for the first time.
So you’re saying you can’t keep it disabled, but you have turn it off every time you start the car??

I don’t have it in my Mazda so I am a little clueless. But....

What is the problem with having the HUD?

Can you adjust the angle so it is out of view? (That would have worked in the old Mazda3 with the pop-up HUD.)

Can you cover the projector to block it?

Can you change the brightness to make it more bearable?

Just some thoughts.

You can not permanently turn off HUD or i-Stop, not even a Mazda Dealer can and YES it will turn back on after you restart car, it is all in your owners manual.

I dimmed the brightness to its maximum but it is still pretty visible. I tilted the angle down as far as it will go so it is less of a distraction, but still a distraction nonetheless. Mazda should not force the driver to deal with it each time the car starts up.

Have you tried putting tape over the projector? My EZ pass fell there once and blocked the whole entire thing from showing 😅

Yeah, just place a piece of black bristol board or something over the projector (you can cut it large enough to wedge higher up in the hole if you're worried about heat).

One of the best features of this vehicle👍
I agree (not having it in my current Mazda but it was in my 2015 Mazda3.

I suspect it is not appreciated by some due to eye focusing or distraction issues.

I also suspect Mazda never thought to have an option to turn it off permanently since the old system could be adjusted so it was not visible for a given driver.

When Mazda came out with the prior generation infotainment system, it was open source so people could customize stuff like this. I was able to use the touchscreen while driving in my 15 Mazda3 with a little self programming. They have blocked this type of self programming since then.

If you switch off the HUD and then program your remote to remember your seat setting it also remembers the HUD settings. Hope this helps.

I love HUDs. I would disable it by taping over the area of the projector or perhaps using thick black paper to do so,

The fact that Mazda makes it impossible to permanently disable the HUD is absurd. They are basically telling the customer that they know best regarding driver safety and we have to use the HUD. Ridiculous.

Did you read the post two above yours stating how to permanently disable it if you have the memory seat function? Asking for a freind.

I have to admit it took me a little getting used to it as iv never had a vehicle with it before and well once I did I love it.. it's fantastic as you are able to keep our eyes up at the road and I never even look at the dash anymore 98 percent of the time.
