NOTE: AFTER 70's Firmware install and in use You Will Not see any information about CP/AA UNTIL and AFTER you install (fit) the TWO Genuine Mazda Parts LAST, you will then see the working CP/AA User Interface (UI).
Make sure your 'Android Auto' Phone App is also the very latest available too.
Only use a Genuine or Quality Phone Power Lead/Cable that came with Phone between the Phone Port and new 'AUX Hub'.
YES, you MUST Purchase the Two Genuine Mazda Parts and then Fit them LAST.
ALL the information on what to do is in the PDF in my Signature Below.
This Thread is NOT for Tweaks or ANY other cheap way to install CP/AA (which does not work anyway and will end up costing you more $$s).
You can not rename File whatsoever.
You can not have ANY other file or files or folders on your flash drive.
You must only have the correct .up file(s) on a small FAT32 (about 16GB) Flash Drive, file CAN NOT be in a .zip or .rar format.
IF still having issues of CMU not seeing USB Flash Drive do a full format clean of Drive.
Put small <16GB USB Drive in Windows 10 PC, go to Start, This PC, RIGHT Click on the Drive, Select Format.., Select FAT32, Select Start, click OK, all files on Drive will be Deleted and Drive Re-Formatted (cleaned).
Copy/Paste new Firmware file(s) ONLY on Drive, remove from PC and try in your car again.
IF you are using any MacOS PC to download file then that will also corrupt your Flash Drive as Macs add hidden files onto flash drive and car CMU will not see the file.
MAZDA ONLY supports MS-Intel Windows 10 64bit OS and is used by all car makers for Diagnostic and Maintenance UPDATES in their Automobiles.
Apple (Mac) systems is not supported or used by any car brands in Service Departments or for Diagnostics, period.
WIRELESS Carplay is ONLY INCLUDED WITH 74.00.230A FIRMWARE for your region which is also a normal Update progression from the now outdated 70.00.367A...as of today (May 10, 2021) 74.00.230A is only available for NA N.
HOWEVER one Must Also Purchase a New CMU from a 2021 Model for a Wireless CP spec car and CMU as not ALL 2021 Models come standard from factory with WCP CMU.
WIRELESS CARPLAY WILL NOT WORK ALONE WITHOUT 74 Firmware and NEW 2021 CMU (meant for WCP), as far as I know those TWO things are all that are required, the Firmware is Free and New WCP CMU is about $900 USD.
