"Beep" option under sound settings for 2016 Mazda CX-5 Touring. What does this "beep" option do?

Asked by May 29, 2015 at 08:42 PM about the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Touring

Question type: General

Under "settings" on the 2016 Mazda CX-5 infotainment center, if you scroll all the way
down there is a setting called "beep." You can turn it on or off. But I can't seem to figure
out what it does. Anybody know?

Just a guess but possibly to turn on/off an audible "beep" or "chirp" when you set the car alarm. My Niece's '05 Impala has a "chirp" on/off selection for her car's alarm. HTH. -Jim

Jim is right, and it can also can be a 'sound' when you navigate through the menu for the radio and info center. My older tribute has that function for selecting radio stations, and you get a beep for each station selection. I turned it off.

Thank you Jim and Tom. Navigating through the menu of the infotainment center by using the touchscreen, makes the beeping sound. Switching off the "beep" option turns it off. The reason I couldn't figure it out was because in the CX-5 you can also navigate the menu using the center knob in between the driver and passenger seats, which does not produce the beeping sound. It is only when you touch the screen that it makes the beep sound. In my case, I always use the center knob to navigate and never the touchscreen which is why I never heard the beep sound :)


You're welcome. Glad to help.That's pretty cool! Thanks for letting us know. -Jim
