Hmm! I tried the update and was informed that since my car was purchased in Nov. 2016, I would have to pay for the update.

NO THANKS!!!

I'll just dig out my old Garmin Nuvi that has free lifetime map updates.

I guess your car was one year old when purchased in Nov 2016? Otherwise, the upgrades are free for 3 years as per this extract from the Mazda Connect CA page :-

"To be sure your Mazda Connect always has the latest updates, use the Mazda Toolbox to view and download available updates and content, including complimentary map updates for three years, commencing when the vehicle has traveled 100km (63 miles) with the SD card inserted."

Yes something is amiss you should have free updates for 3 years! Ours expires in Jan 2019. By the way, what do they charge for the update? Never seen anything on the prices...

I think it's a typo. He bought his around the time that I bought mine. it's a 2016 but purchased late 2015.
Based on what I saw for 3 years , they should pay us to do their occasional updates.
Google, Yahoo and Garmin ,to quickly name a few that come to mind, are free with regular updates. If somebody decided to actually spend money on the Mazda update, it looks to be less expensive to buy another SD card from eBay.
Now that Mazda finally decided to make Apple CarPlay/Android Auto available, likely a matter of time before their inferior system is discontinued.
..........and again based on CarPlay/Android Auto , Mazda will likely try to find a way to make the consumer pay for their lack of foresight.

didn't want to go bigger but the 2019 Toyota Rav4 trail edition may be next - not totally convinced to leave Mazda but still pissed about the fiasco of innuendo and leading customers to believe a minimal update for apple/android

I am one of those cranky old guys stuck on past technology with no intention of jumping aboard the newest Internet stuff. I don't have a smartphone and never intend to get one but I have a much handier clamshell dumb cellphone which works very well at what it is supposed to do, and nothing more. I will be staying out of the CarPlay fad. I am OK with basic GPS technology, but I resent having to pay for regular updates to the maps that Mazda requires.

And yes, I bought my 2016 Mazda CX3 in November 2015 and my warranty is calculated from that time.
