Mazda AU did have a 'Genuine' hands free kit ($500) for NC (Miata owners) and Series 2 RX-8 owners that was plugged in under the dash somewhere, BUT was expensive and cheap at the same time...lol..., and my contacts said reliability was bad and better off buying a eBay $30 hands-free unit that plugs into *** Lighter, which I did.

But what annoys me more is Mazda takes SO LONG to do things, and SLOW.
First the breakthrough in Second Gen Mazda's is they factory install a 12V Plug in the S2 RX-8 and NC2 Miata, but no USB Ports, then not until Skyactiv did we see any USB ports and Car Smart Phone use, most other brands had this 2-3 years prior.
So AU S2 Luxury doesn't get the Bluetooth hands free standard? In NA, GT and R3 have them standard. Not that I use it much anyway(either I will pick up and say "I am driving" or I call someone when I am parked outside their house), but still weird.

Sucks that we don't have the Bluetooth music streaming ability. With my factory touch screen, it shows the BT streaming option, but it's always grayed out. Even weirder, Mazda 3 of the same year had the ability.

I just use the AUX cable, or you have those hipster smartphones without an AUX port, I also have a BT to AUX adapter in the centre console.

I guess a USB port could be good if you have those AUX-less smartphones, but I get my music through Sirius XM. Is that a thing in Australia?

Nope no factory BT for my S2 Lux, I think it came in in 2011 with Sat Nav screen etc.
No Sirius XM (Sat) here we get DAB+ (only later Skyactiv)
You can use Pandora if you want via Phone (data).

Yep, I use AUX port and BT adapter for Phone calls and Streaming BT Music from phone.
Hate free to air channels here and the crap they play. Ads with Music.

My 2011 GT has BT, but only for hands-free calling, and it does not work well. I also use a BT adapter into the aux port for music.

IMO the hands-free works okay. The navigation, on the other hand... The voice recognition in the 8 is just garbage. My Accord was able to recognize my command correctly for the most part, while the 8 just does whatever it wants after I give it a command.
