Mazda CX-9 Owners Manual: Active Driving Display

Active Driving Display


Always adjust the display brightness and position with the vehicle stopped: Adjusting the display brightness and position while driving the vehicle is dangerous as doing so could distract your attention from the road ahead and lead to an accident.
