1. Please let us know if you used a Nav-SD before in this car?
2. And if so, can you update it in the toolbox? I assume not.

1. I did not use an SD-Nav before in the car.
2. The card that I received has the official (or official-looking) Mazda emblem complete with part number attached along with instructions on how to update the maps, so perhaps, but I haven't tried. I think that I purchased from a different vendor on Amazon than the link above, but it also cost $89USD.

Yes, so I believe what Tristan is getting at is that had you previously used a Nav card, the one you purchased from Amazon would not work since the previous one would have been registered to the Vin. Since this is your first nav card for the car, you should be able to update it with the Mazda toolbox until it expires....but you won't be able to get another Amazon SD to work.

@IdoMRI : Correct. You could use the card forever, but you need to buy an extension/prolongin of the map update subscription, if you want to do more updates after 3 years. Of you just buy another Nav-SD after 3 years, this will work, but not be updateable.

@davyjordi : Never heard of "unlimited". Fingers crossed for you. What does the toolbox software show on the left at "expiration date"?

Hello,
I know absolutely nothing about cars, and I came across this page while trying to find what sd card works. My boyfriend has a mazda 2019 basic 3 model, and I am trying to surprise him with one for his birthday sunday. Is this the one you purchased ? and does it? his car was brand new (6 miles on it) when he purchased it. Would that make a difference using this? or would I not be able to use this? Sorry if this has already been asked/answered. There’s just so many post & questions I am not sure if I am looking at the right one! Please let me know as soon as you can about this! Thank you for your help!!
