Good news Android users and Mazda owners – you can now download Mazda’s MyMazda app.

The MyMazda app had previously only been available for iPhone users, but now Android smartphone users can use this app to get real-time information about their vehicle. This free app updates you as to service offers personalized to your car, scheduled maintenance reminders, factory maintenance schedules and other information.

Using the MyMazda app, you’ll be able to scan vehicle identification numbers (VINs) when you want to add new vehicles to the application. You can also update your contact information and upload personal vehicle photos for each vehicle you register.

If you’ve forgotten where you’ve parked your car in a busy parking lot, use the vehicle locator feature – it uses GPS to find out when you left your vehicle. As well, the “MyMazda” app is linked with the “Mazda Assist” app, so you can get hooked up with immediate roadside assistance should you need it using only the app on your smartphone, no 911 call necessary.

The MyMazda app for Android is available for free download at the Google Play Store.

If you own a Mazda and an iPhone, you’ll want to download the all-new MyMazda iPhone app. This handy free app offers you easy access to service offers, scheduled and factory maintenance reminders, and other important information – right at your fingertips.

Claiming to be one of the first automotive iPhone apps to provide customers with real-time information about their vehicle, the MyMazda app lets you see when you’re due for maintenance, it gives you your vehicle service history and provides you with recall updates.  You can also use the app to register your Mazda, update your contact information and select a preferred dealer for each car you register.

Synced with the Mazda Customer Connect (MCC), the MyMazda app has direct mail, email, appointment scheduling, mobile bar coding and a text messaging reminder feature, as well as access to custom tailored service and parts offers and promotions. If you need to book an appointment with the nearest dealer, just use the Mazda dealer locator to find one that’s close to you.

If you’re the forgetful type, MyMazda has got you covered – it will send you reminder alerts for upcoming appointments. Plus, with the GPS-powered car locator, once you park your car, you can type in its location so you can find it easily later on – that feature will come in handy at crowded shopping mall parking lots.

The MyMazda iPhone app is available for download at the Apple iTunes store. Android users can expect to see the Android version of the app released in the next few months.
