I don't understand why it doesn't fit 05. I've had both, and they seem the same to me.

You're right, in '06 Mazda changed the wiring harness to make the LCD separate from the stereo. They may look the same, but the '04-'05 stereos and the '06-'07 stereos are not compatible.

I have an 06 But I don't think Canada had the Bose option (or if we did the 6 disc changer came with it anyways), so will this work with my car?

Probably not. The problem with this item is that it isn't really an upgrade for anyone. The Bose CD-changer only works with the Bose sound system (amp, speakers, etc). If you've got the Bose sound system it says Bose on the speakers and the HU says BOSE when you power it on instead of HELLO. The Bose sound system is only sold with the exact same CD changer that's being sold here.

Net result:
If you can use the CD changer, you already have it.

It'd be great for someone who fried or broke their Bose stereo, but it's only good for a replacement. Not an upgrade.

Thanks for the clarification. That is what I suspected.
