Hello,

Could someone please tell me the latest firmware for the Mazda Connect system that does not include AA/Carplay?

I'm on version .59 something.

HiDrive has the following older firmwares:
CMU_7000C0A-NA01_10015.kwi
CMU_7000C0A-NA01_10018.kwi


Thinking the 10018 firmware will work, but would appreciate confirmation before I start messing with stuff.

Thanks in advance.

The firmware (FW) files you mentioned are not for your MZD. They are only for the new MZD Connect II from the M3 2019/2020 and the CX-30. You can not install them at your MZD (as your signature states you drive an M3 2018).

The latest FW 59 for North America and your MZD I would recommend is 59.00.545 (Downloadlink). There is .546, but I think that they only removed some settings for the rear camera due to legal reasons in that version. These are the last ones without AA/CP in it... from 70.00.021 onwards AA/CP is "included", but only activated when new hub+cables are installed.

Stick to the FW update procedure PDF (see also link above) to the word, as otherwise you could brick your MZD. All on your own risk. Mazda does not intend users/owners to update the MZD by themselves. Just as info.

Thanks. I may need to pony up the dough and get the new hub installed. Update to the latest and greatest...

Last I checked it was like $350 to have the dealer install it. What do you think? Worth it?

Dealership went this route.

Everything seems okay.

Hi,
I have Mazda 3 2014 with OS version 56.0.0.100 EU N and File Safe Version 21.00.000 so the versions are not the same. Please advise what steps I should take in order to install the latest version.
