Hi, I recently bought a new Mazda 3, model 2017. There is a new color HUD but it shows only speed and no traffic
signs and navigation arrows as promised. Is there a software bug or something else? Firmware version is 59 00 443 EU.
How does traffic signs recognition work anyway? On windshield is a camera, does it actually read signs or just take them from
navigation info? In that case this is a poor solution since signs can change much faster than navigation data....
Can anyone help? Thanks.

Yes, navigation is installed (SD inserted) and it works. I just don't see anything on the HUD....

Yes, i set a destination, driving around with guidance on: "...Turn left, after 100 meters turn right.....". I enable option to show guidance on Hud but nothing helps. On my previous Mazda 3 (2014) with
Firmware 56 xxxx I had no such issue - it works fine. So this is very frustrating and I'm already starting to believe that changing from previous to a new model was a mistake....

i think its setting issue, go to main setting and AD-Disp navigation and active driving display both should be checked

Hi, today i was driving to work and again navigation directions WERE NOT SHOWN on HUD.
So I have to go to Settings-Display and re-check option for showing directions on HUD (even though this option was checked).
It looks it is a bug anyway.

You probably removed your SD card. I noticed that after you remove SD and put it back again you have to go to HUD settings to reenable navi and speed limit signs.

I have the exact same issue.

The traffic sign is working fine on the HUD, but every time I start the navigation route, I need to go into the AD display menu and switch the navigation info off and back on, and it has to be done a little slowly for it to work every time.

This is clearly a bug, and will likely be fixed with a new firmware version.

I just discovered the other day that on my 2017, without the Nav Card, you don't get the speed signs. FYI, I thought I had read that the Mazda has road sign recognition, but if it does, it is not where I live (North America) I guess.

However I have never had any HUD issues displaying anything as long as the Nav card was working. Just recently it stopped but I'm running a clone of my OEM card and had to sort out a validation issue.

Oops .... I see that you are running 59 00 443 EU ... not sure which version I have but it's North Amer so maybe it is something with that firmware.

My Mazda dealer informed Mazda already, but they told them, that the bug was fixed in 449. But this bug still exists in Firmaware 59.00.449 EU...

Hey guys,
I think I have found a workaround:
after the update to .449 I had the exact same issue - no guide on the HUD.
Off and On of the option in menu helped, but only for one ride.

What I did:
1. Start the car
2. Add some destination in Navi (no direction on the HUD so far)
3. Off and then On the option in Settings - directions appeared on the HUD
4. Stop the engine, lock the car
5. Open the car and start the engine - previous route should remain in Navi and direction signs should still be shown on the HUD
6. Cancel the route

From this point, directions appear every time I add new destination, even after restart.

Hope that helps....
