Is there a way to turn off the radio on every start? Looks like you can only put it on mute or turn off the whole system but I need the NAV screen on. Any idea? Thanks.

Get yourself a 3.5mm stereo headphone plug - you can buy them on Amazon for about $5 - and plug it into the aux input jack in the console. Then go to the Media menu and select AUX as the source. With the plug inserted, the infotainment system will think there's a real source there, but of course there's not, and you'll just get silence. Voila! No radio, and your nav will still work.

I hope there is a better solution than having to resort to trickery. I haven't even tried to use my navigation yet, but that would be crazy if there is no way to turn off the radio without losing the ability to have your nav on. To be such a wonderfully designed ride, the team sure has too many why-I-outta moments on many of the other aspects of the car.

Press the mute button (small knob, center console) or minimize volume and ignore it. Volume announcing GPS is separate. It's really not that big of a deal.

Is it me or are we all becoming a bunch of whiny babies in our culture?

My Fiat 124 Spider, which uses the Mazda infotainment system, acts exactly the same way. The Spider has a JBL system. JBL is part of Harman International. In some Harman engineer's infinite wisdom, the decision was made that everybody who listens to an audio source wants to listen to it every time they get in the car. So, yeah, I use "trickery" to circumvent that boneheaded engineering decision. The headphone plug is a cheap and effective solution for a driver who only occasionally wants to listen to audio when driving.

Mute is not sufficient as the mute will be ignored on start-up. Turning the volume all the way down does the trick.
