" DUDE..I was going crazy calling Mazda to get a darn AUX cord put into my 06 Mazda3. Apparently I couldn't buy the control unit unless it was
already put in the car back in '06. THAT WAS BALONY. My next option was buying a stereo at Best Buy which they told me it would cost me $200-$300
just for a special car stereo installation kit (plastic frame) because my three analog stereo was special and it was also attached to heat/air vents.
No no no, I am not paying $500 for a new radio + frame JUST FOR an AUX cord, you crazy kid.
THEN YOU ARRIVED. First off I got a personal email from one of your guys named Maurizio who was super kind and nice,
confirming that my package was shipped and and how he's expediting my package to me (didnt ask for more money) and it should come in 3-5 to five
days. Well I got it at 9am on the third morning on the North East US.
FRESH. Finally, I've never heard such clear and crisp sound from my phone
using your cords instead of that stupid FM Transmitter from Ebay that kills
all my FM stations. I simply plugged and played this kit to the back of my
stereo (guess what Mazda - I can put a AUX control kit in) and ran the wire
down the side of the cabin and now I got a sleek looking cord chillen. At
last I can hear some crisp good Bass knocking House Music.
Thanks a lot
guys, you did good work with the Kit and I promise you you'l get some more
buyers from me. -Dom F."
"I received mine yesterday, extremely easy to install, the sound quality is good using my iPhone's 30-pin connector, I highly recommend this product if you want to integrate your iPhone or iPod to your car's factory radio without investing on a new one.
Your steering wheel controls can be used for music skip, it is perfect!

"Just received the GTA Car Kit and very pleased with the final result.
Using the Youtubevideo guide, having no experience in car wiring, I just followed the steps inthe video and it was just too easy. Rather than pulling the shifter panel witha hook and risking scratching the plastic, in the Youtube comments someonewrote that by opening the center armrest and then pulling, the handbrake andshifter panel both came out, it worked just fine with no scratches at all.
I ran the Wire Harness from the CD player, down to the gearbox shifter and taped the ModuleUnit to the side of the shifter, thus having more than required length for boththe AUX and the iPhone cable. I taped both wires under the cup holder and passedthese through the side of cup holder. To prevent the door of the cup holderfrom pressing against the wires, I drilled a hole under the door and inserted asmall screw to allow an opening for the wires when the cup holder is opened.And finally, placed everything back. And also when not being used, Ijust put the wires in the cup holder and close the lid.
I had used an FM transmitter, but was very disappointed withthe poor quality and low volume sound. But I was extremely pleased with the GTACar Kit, the sound quality is way far in front of the FM transmitter, the musicplayed is crystal clear even at maximum volume. I also love the plug and playfunction and using the steering wheel buttons!
I recommend the GTA Car Kit to everyone!"
I just installed my car kit and wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it! I received it 2 days after ordering it online, and, using your youtube video, was able to install it in 30 minutes. Let me be clear: I am a 22 year old female with no knowledge of cars or electronics, but I installed this alone in just one half hour. I am so excited about how well it works and how professional it looks! I did want to share a few tips on its installation, though, if you wanted to put this on your website. (For reference, I was installing the car kit in my 2006 Mazda3.)
- I was able to remove the bar (in step 1) without a screwdriver. I couldn't find the hooks indicated in the video, so in trying to find them with my fingers, I ended up pulling it out!
- I followed a comment from youtube and removed the trip around the shifter by simply opening up the center armrest and pull the trim upwards where the latch closes. I then worked my way to the front of the trim near the shifter. By doing this, I did not have to worry about scratching the trim.
- I avoided drilling a hole in my ashtray by unscrewing the screw holding the lightbulb to the ashtray. This creates a perfect sized hole to feed the iPod cord through, and looks very clean!
Thanks again for such a wonderful addition to my car!

"I have zero experience with car wiring and this was a simple install. It took me a little over an hour and I was taking my time. I really think you could do it in 20 minutes if you needed to. The only tool I used was a screw driver. I decided to run my cables into the cup holder instead of the ash tray. I didn't want to take the ash tray out because I store spare change in there.
I've waited to do this to my 04 because I was afraid of breaking something.
Now I wish I had done it years ago. "

"I bought one of your car kits for my daughters Mazda 3 2006 as a Christmas present.
I finally got around to installing it yesterday 1-8-12. Using your video it took about 45 minutes and it was extremely easy.
After testing and then re-assembling it works great. She is extremely happy with it and I am her hero.
I just received and installed my GTA Car Kit. It works fantastic! Was a breeze to install and is literally plug and play.
Thank you for making such an awesome product!

"I used FM transmitter that had static and low volume, heard the GTA car kit in my friends car and it was clear.
Shipping was 2 days.
The install was very easy, took no more than 15minutes, watching the video from my iPhone step by step during install.
I'm using an iPhone4 in my Mazda3, and for now cables just run down the side of the console,
will consider passing through ashtray at a later date. I like easy install and use of my steering wheel controls. I would recommend your kit to my friends.

" I found GTA car kits on Google Search.
I tried an FM transmitter that I purchased at the Apple store. I returned it less then 24 hours later.
The quality was so poor I couldn't believe that Apple would actually sell the product.
Shipping was fast. It only took a few days. The installation was very easy. I don't know anything about installation and the video proved to be very handy.
I watched it a few times and then I was ready to go. It took a total of 30 minutes to install the GTA Car Kit.
I am using an iPhone4. I ran the AUX and iPhone cable down through the ash try. It was very easy to feed through.
The sound quality is amazing. I love that its just plug and play!
It is a great value for the money and I would definitely recommend to my friends.

"Hi guys!! Today, I have received the Mazda3's GTA Car Kit.
It's an amazing product, easy to install, the sound is great and everything is working correctly.
Just to tell you that the iPad2 is working as well.
Thank you, great job!

" I found GTA car kits on Youtube for Mazda3 car installations. I didn't try any FM transmitters before because I heard they were junk.
I was very pleased with the time that it took to arrive. Extremely easy installation. I followed the GTA video and had no trouble at all. I ran the cables as instructed in the video.
I'm using the iphone 3 for my device. Love the ability to still use my steering wheel function. I was very worried about that.
I feel I received a great item for the money.

"Just got my GTA kit for my 06 Mazda and I am very impressed. I had tried another brand and could not get it to work. Found you on the Internet and since I am local I had my kit in 20 minute.
When I mentioned I had trouble with the other unit the rep from GTA stayed with me while I hooked it up just to make sure that it worked with no trouble.
The unit worked as advertised and I will recommend your company to everyone.
Thanks for the great service

"I installed the car kit today. Everything works great.
The installation of the car kit was simple. The video tutorial made it even easier and was a very valuable tool to my successful install.
For the stock deck, there's a compartment for an expansion. I placed the box there, so it literally took up no space inside.
The cables were long enough to reach most areas. I decided to place my cable under the ashtray and cup holder.
The cable comes up from the hand-break and into the storage box. This way both the iPod and the cables are hidden.
The quality of the sound is excellent! The sound of the car kit pumps out more power than the stock AUX port.
The bass seems to sound better as well. The unit was tested with both AUX and iPod plugged in at the same time with no problems.
The best of all, are the steering wheel controls. Instead of manually changing songs on the iPod, using the steering wheel
controls allows me to shuffle songs without taking the eyes off the road.
However, it would be much better if the iPod can be paused and play using the dash controls. The iPod also charges and stops/pauses
the song when you're not using it.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the product. The installation took less than an hour, and the convenience and quality are fabulous.

" This kit worked like a charm! I do like to take things apart but not in cars and this only took me an hour to do.
Super easy install.
The only issue I had was trying to figure out how to get the cd player back in with the wires and box out of the way and
I used a little bit of Velcro then tucked them in the back to the left. I also put the wire thru the ash tray and didn't have to drill anything just
pulled out the red? plastic piece and fed the wire thru that.
I have a 2005 mazda3 sp23 w/o aux.
