You'd think Mazda would give us the flat rate (number of hours required).

im really curious as to what labor cost has been quoted to people so far. I wouldnt be surprised if different dealers price gouged it differently

Looking back at NotAPreppie's instructions in a previous post, a quick Google search reveals the Retrofit Kit (0000-8F-Z34) can now be had for as little as $155.

So if you have the tools and the time (not-to-mention a heated workspace), going the DIY route is certainly tempting ... given that we have NotAPreppie's detailed, step-by-step instructions :--)

Personally, I'm confident handling the mechanical tasks, but apprehensive about the electrical tasks, e.g. updating the CMU.

Unhappy

Oh how I wish this was available 6 months ago, before I bought mine. I think this'll be a better option than starting to pay for map updates in 2 1/2 years, however it's $443 Cdn here according to my invite.

It may be my background in IT (it was my first career) but I think the software was the easiest part.
Get a 1 GB or larger USB flash drive.
Format it FAT32.
Copy the firmware files to it.
Follow the instructions to the letter.

Girl who sold me my car said $379 for everything. Not really worth it for that much. If I had any mechanical knowledge at all I would try to do it myself for the $155 part.

OK, instructions and encouragement ... no excuse.

P.S. I was in IT before it was IT ... it was called Data Processing, Unit Record Equipment ... half cycling an IBM 650, debugging SOAP card in/card out for input to a 407 printer ... wiring a 407, when men were men, and there was no PC, neither political behavior nor itsy-bitsy computers :--)

Back before computers were "personal"?

My application developer buddy once crashed an AS/400. Fortunately it was the development AS/400 and not the production AS/400.
