ASH8, Many thanks again. Followed the instructions and your advices, all went smoothly. Using 2 days now, no bugs, no freezing. It took the system 55 minutes to upgrade from 59.00.502 to 74.00.324. One file, one update only 👍. It have updated also the music library from 00.07.000 to 00.12.003, what ever it means, I didn’t try to figure out what is the difference. Finally I ordered a new CMU with CarPlay which I always wanted to have.

I have just joined this forum to see if I can obtain any advice and a link for the MAZDA CX5 firmware updates. I have a 2018 model currently using Version 59.00.540. Will I need to carry out a 2 stage update to get to 70.00335C?

Many thanks for any help reference this question and the link I will require to obtain the correct firmware updates for Europe.

Thank you

Hi,
Only one update. I’ve done mine from 59.00.52 to 74.00.324 a couple of days ago.
Pm to ASH8, he can help with that.

So if you have checked your own CX-3's touch screen and done this as shown above...
How Do I know what 'Version Of Firmware' I already have installed in my car with Mazda-MZD Connect now?

You should now see a screen showing the installed Firmware and Music Database presently installed.

---------------------------------000ooo000-----------------------------------

If you are in 4A or Australia/NZ/Thailand etc it may show...see example touchscreen pics below for ADR (4A) and JP Japan.

OS Version is 56.00.100 4A N
Music Database Version is 00.05.000
Fail Safe Version is 56.00.100


So in this example for ADR (4A) the numbered string is 56.00.100, therefore you can update to newer ADR_56.00.513C which is a higher and latest Firmware File (Firmware Download links available on Mazda3 Rev Forum Thread).
You can also update your Music Database to 00.07.000
NEVER install a Lower Outdated Version of Firmware.

---------------------------------000ooo000-----------------------------------


If you are in NA or North America, USA, Canada, Mexico it may show...

OS Version is 55.00.760 NA N
Music Database Version is 00.05.000
Fail Safe Version is 55.00.760


So in this example for NA the numbered string is 55.00.760, therefore you can update to the newer NA_59.00.441A which is a higher and latest Firmware File (Firmware Download links available on Mazda3 Rev Forum Thread).
You can also update your Music Database from 00.05.000 to 00.07.000.
NEVER install a Lower Outdated Version of Firmware.

---------------------------------000ooo000-----------------------------------


Examples ONLY of a Touchscreen Firmware Database Version inquiry...



Good day dear, I want to install the firmware 74.00.311, but I need to download it, but I can't send a private message yet :(

Hello ASH8. My CX9 is on firmware 70.XXX NA and CarPlay enabled. It works fine but boot up is very slow... I'm hoping that a firmware update might help. Could you send me a link ? is there a MESH in the file folder ?

Mazda-MZD Connect FIRMWARE Downloads-UPDATED

CX-3 Owners (worldwide), YES you can update your Firmware yourself IF you wish to a later updated versions, these later versions have many bug fixes and at times new features for particular model Mazda's.

All Skyactiv Mazda's has the same 'usage' in all the Mazda model line up, like CX-5, CX-9, CX-3, Mazda 2, 3 and 6 and MX-5.

ALL you need to do is select and install the correct 'Type' for your Country or Region..DO NOT Mix up or Install Firmware meant for different Countries/Regions.

There are basically 4 different Firmware Types.
NA is for North America ONLY.
EU is for Europe and UK.
ADR (4A) is for Australia, NZ, Thailand, Philippines, most of South America and most of Africa and Oceania.
JP is for Japan ONLY.

How Do I know what 'Version Of Firmware' I already have installed in my car with Mazda-MZD Connect now?

Do the following on your cars Dashboard Connect LCD Screen to reveal.......

Connect Touch Screen ON; touch "Settings" icon (far right); Then far right Folder Tab '>>' touch it a few times to 'System' Folder; finger scroll to bottom of page touch "About"; touch "Version Information";

See the three Version of Firmware Type + Numbers listed on
your cars Dashboard Connect LCD Screen (EU here is an example).......

OS Version is 56.00.513 EU N
Music Database Version is 00.05.000
Fail Safe Version is 56.00.513


Note: The N after the firmware 'type' means the 'SatNav' protocol that being the NNG brand.
(JP firmware has 'SatNav' protocol M by Matsukone only used for/in Japan).

Note: Earlier Versions of Firmware may not show any 'type' or letters after the numbers, until a later update has been installed, be careful if there are no alpha letters after the firmware numbers that you do install the correct type for your Country, do not guess it, ask here if you are not certain.

Anyway there is a Thread I created over at our sister forum, the Mazda 3 Revolution .com forum with all the Links and Advise you will ever need, yes it is a long thread, but it really is very simple.
As I can not post external links here, go to this Forum and look for this specific Thread Title and Download Links....

"Mazda-MZD Connect FIRMWARE Downloads-UPDATED"

There is also a similar named thread which is much older and much larger, but it is not up to date and contains far less user info and user instructions.

IF you have already installed any 'Tweaks" or SSH re-formatting in your great Mazda CX-3 I strongly suggest you remove these tweaks BEFORE you run the standard OE Mazda Firmware update.
Some owners (only a few) have bricked their CMU because they did not follow this advise.
You do not void your warranty by updating your Connect Firmware yourself.
NOTE: In most cases when you update Firmware your Music Database (Gracenote) is also updated to latest available.

ALSO NOTE: Do not rely on your Mazda Dealer to update your Firmware for Connect as most never will unless you complain of a specific issue or fault.

This thread is NOT about any hacking advise, sorry, I can not help you there.
There are other threads/members who can for that. :)

For Links for the latest Firmware Please ONLY Contact me via private message system by Start Conversation. Click on persons Avatar pic See 'Message' and click on it then fill out the Message you want to send, then click on Start conversation to send.
CAN NOT MESSAGE ME...??
IF YOU ARE A NEW MEMBER you must post text content in at least 2 separate posts in any thread within THIS forum, THEN wait about 24 hours and then you can direct message any member, this is usual policy in most forums.
Hello

Could you please send the 74.00.324A link for Europe?

Many thanks
