  1. NAV Map Updates

    2019+ Mazda 3 Audio & Electronics
    I read somewhere that Mazda releases NAV Updates for North America twice per year. Is there a typical time frame when Mazda releases the map updates? I know the Toolbox isn't available yet.
  2. July 2018 Map updates for NA are available

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Just ran toolbox and it tells me that a July 2018 Map update is available. Nothing on the website yet but downloading now with toolbox. Edit: July 2018 update installed and they finally have the road changes in my neighbourhood updated. I'm impressed, only took 4 years to get one new road and...

  5. Infotainment System Updates?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Does Mazda (presumably via your dealer) provide updates to the Infotainment system? Pandora crashes on occasion and causes the infotainment system to reboot.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Started an update on my SD Nav card. Download started several hours ago and still only at 5% and we're on a fast internet connection (200Mbps)?

  8. No Nav map updates since last fall?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I am located in the EU and bought a new Mazda with the Navigation enabled last fall but I have not received a single map update since. I actually paid quite a bit for the option and is puzzled why there has been no updates since. We have had some changes to larger roads , exits and...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Check out this comment I saw on Instagram today from a Mazda dealer http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/58a768718ee1e/Screenshot_2017-02-17-16-15-30.png? Some dealer mentioned an AWD 2.5t mazda6 being released among other things. That's pretty badass Sent from my LG-H631 using Tapatalk
  10. Software updates for 2015 model

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, Have there been any software updates for MY15 Mazda3 that the dealer can do? I'm talking infotainment and the general engine computer. I service it myself so it doesn't see a workshop or dealer.

  13. Gracenote updates... when?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The manual says that the Gracenote update frequency is 6 months. Every time I check, the latest file is still cmu-NA-021115.up so that's well over a year old (assuming the filename reflects the release date). I originally downloaded that copy in April 2015, shortly after buying the car.
  14. Map Updates

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The Mazda websites says maps will be updated twice a year. The last time I checked and updated was in January. What gives? If I had to purchase updates I would be very upset that I wasn't getting anything for my money. I also think it is lame that there is no place to check to see if there...
  15. Nav Updates

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    How often are the maps for the nav updated? Is there a way to sign up to be notified when new maps are available?
  16. Anyone asked for Lifetime Map Updates? Cost after Year 3?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I'm negotiating via email for a '15 sGT hatch, auto, white (extra $200) with tech package. MSRP with $795 destination is $30,190. 5 dealerships have given me quotes which I think expire 1/5/15 for year end sales(?). Before my state's TT&L, the lowest year end cash price is $27,155 and the...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Mazda says they provide an updated map twice a year - once in the spring and once in the fall. Does anyone know what month in each of these seasons the update is released?
  18. HD Radio Traffic Updates

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    So far completely in love with my 15 Itouring. However one thing that irk's me is the HD radio traffic updates. It never seems to move with my car. For example I was traveling for an hour westbound and I left the screen. Is there something i'm missing to get it to update to my nearest...
  19. Has Mazda stopped offering Navigation map updates?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    The previous website I used for updating my 2014 Mazda3 navigation system's map data, Mazda.NaviExtras.com, looks like a mess with messages like this on it: The site also says map updates come out twice a year: Yet the last update was 2013 Q2: Is there somewhere else 2014 Mazda3...
  20. Any Product Updates from JBR

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So I sent an email to JBR and asked if their Power Path Stage I intake SKY20-PPI-S1 was indeed compatible with both the 2.0 and 2.5 since it's listed for both the 2014 Mazda3 and 2014 Mazda6. I got an email back from JBR and they said they are still working on the 2.5 intake. Also, I know a...
