Will they still do free updates after the warranty is out?
They never fixed the problems when I got the last 3 updates. I'm hoping the newest update will work better for me.

I'm still on an older x.441 firmware on my 2017 GT3, so I fixed the niggles I had with the infotainment via the tweaks app. Full disclaimer though, if you have a newer firmware it may brick your console. :) mazdatweaks.com

It doesn't look like the dealer bothered updating it before they sold it to me, not sure when they would unless you asked. Perhaps during a normal scheduled service?

Had a scheduled maintenance about a year ago of my 2015 Mazda3. The guy on the service desk did mentioned about firmware upgrade even when told that I already did it with the latest version at that time. He then played smart on me & told me that I should have not done it 'cause it voids the warranty & that the technician gonna check the firmware version anyway to see if I really did have the latest. Post maintenance, it got me worried when I read on the maintenance notes that he did a firmware upgrade. When I checked my car, it still had the same Mazda Connect firmware version & wallpaper that I put prior to service. I think the service technician is obligated to perform & report a firmware upgrade during scheduled maintenance (if a new firmware comes out) even those not done by them but by the owner of the vehicle prior to service. Not sure though after warranty.

During a regular service, I asked if they could upgrade the firmware on my car and they did it for free. My infotainment system used to freeze and reboot sometimes and the upgrade fixed it.
