I recently bought a used imported 2014 Mazda 3 from Japan.
CMU is regularly restarting without any reason and I am not familiar with Japanese language. Is there any way to update the firmware and change the language to English?

The firmware now is the following:


SD is also Japanese and I am wondering if I can get the Navi working in my country (Cyprus).

Region & SatNav Suffix Legend:
NA is for North America, USA, Canada, Mexico regions ONLY ⇐ mine
EU is for Europe, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Russia regions
4A or ADR is for Australia, NZ, Thailand, Philippines, South Africa-America, Oceania regions
JP is for Japan ONLY

N is the ‘SatNav’ protocol belonging to NNG (for all regions except JP) ⇐ mine
M is the ‘SatNav’ protocol belonging to Matsukone (exclusively for JP)

I'm pretty sure the hardware is different (better shielding, WiFi, DVD, but primarily Matsukone GPS board) for the Japanese CMU, so you might have to "downgrade" to a EU (or ADR?) unit (with NNG GPS and corresponding firmware), rather than just changing software. Your dealer should know.

Hello my friend you need to take it to software specialists to change the whole system to the EU one.

I took mine tou XARTOUPALLOS in limassol contact number is +357 99545393, it costs 150 euro.

the satellite navigation will not work in cyprus as the maps do not exist so i have been told.

hope this helps

You can change region by using another region firmware.
If you want to use AIO, Don't Firmware Update v59.00.502 and higher.
Update instruction available Mazda3forum ”Index for Infotainment Project” thread

MZD Connect(CMU) and Matuskone(CMU) are the same Hardware.(exclude China). Software defined manage.(As-Build data and Firmware Region)

(Language Selection v59.00.326JP M or higher available.
But NNG Navigation Support end V33 (exclude modded firmware) .
You must install another region firmware, if you want to use NNG navi and latest firmware.)

Ive changed to EU firmware (59.00.449EU N) in my 2016 mazda axela(JDM). Ive bought a brand new SD card with South Asian maps including my country,but car doesnt show GPS signal.(Not showing satellites in info screen). Is it because due to different firmware? Any help on this is highly appreciated. Thanks in advance,HC

Hi Guys,

My wife and I just got an imported JDM Mazda Demio (Mazda2) and Axela (Mazda3) and we'd like to know if anyone has found a way to update the Japanese CMU into a version that allows you to change from Japanese to English language.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

How can we install properly from JP to EU please?

I've already installed on my JP Mazda Demio, first 59.00.545 EU N and after 70.00.100A EU N, but still not working my GPS signal with SD card.

Do you know how to fix it, please?

Thank you!
