Here you can find the .367 ADR file and update manual pdf, which is written for the dealers, as mazda does not intend users to update by themselves. So all on your own risk. Read the Instructions before starting and follow them to the word.
Hi mate,
What format is the usb drive to be for this process? Is there a specific format required? Do I have to create a folder for update file? Or just the update file in root folder?

IOS 14.2 does not play well with ADR_70.00.335C on a 2014 BM. New graphics are pretty. All buttons work EXCEPT for the enter button. Scrolling between icons works but I need to use the touch screen to select anything. I already tried "forgetting" the car but nothing changed. Anyone else notice this?

Edit: I'll try updating to 367A. Will post feedback.

Here for those interested pics below are the all NEW CONNECT II for US Mazda CX-5 and CX-9 for the 2021 Model Years.
They now have the all new 10.3 inch Screen and the Old Mazda Connect .up is NLA, they both use the 2019 Mazda Connect II .kwi Set-up and UI..

And NO, YOU CAN NOT install this in your BM/BN Mazda 3, or CX-3, or CX-5 or CX-9 or MX-5 or Mazda 6 that use the .up Firmware, as internal Hardware inside Dash, Wiring and ECU/PCM Config is also all new.

These two new 2021 models will be out for rest of world very soon.

In fact these 2 CX-s of 2021 use TWO Separate Mazda Dealer Diagnostic Systems, the old soon outdated Ford/Mazda IDS and the latest all new MDARS (Bosch) used from 2019 Mazda 3 and CX-30 and next gen all New Mazda's, like next gen Mazda 6* in late 2021.
* Or could be an all new Mazda Connect III...??

Ok I finally figured out what was going on.

Update to 367 went well but the select action still didn't work. After spamming the button I happened to look at the iPhone and noticed a ghost quarter press on the upper left of the screen and the Assistive Touch button was unfocused.

I removed the Assistive Touch button and eureka! Carplay is working as expected now.

The Assistive Touch button is only used to close recently opened apps. I moved the action to the triple back tap option. Buhbye Assistive Touch!

TL;DR Connect does not play well with iOS 14.2 when Assistive Touch is enabled. Fix: turn off Assistive Touch.

I successfully updated my 2017 Mazda6 Sport AT from 59.00.330 NA N to 70.00.100A NA N. When I attempt the update to 70.00.367A, the usb drive and the firmware file are recognized properly but after initializing the install (before the black screen) I get an error message saying that the package validity can't be verified. The shasum was correct, I installed this package in a similar manner to 70.00.100A (of course without the failsafe), and I tried the formatting twice on two different windows machines.

I'm looking to install carplay which, as I understand, only requires 70.00.xxx. What will I be missing with the upgrades past that? And is anyone familiar with this issue or aware of workarounds?

Dumb question, but I followed the guide, got updated on my 2016 mazda 6 to version 70.00.100a, but I don't see the option for car play and andoid auto in the applications menu, does that only show up after you install the hardware kit? Just hoping I upgraded the firmware correctly.

Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you to everyone, especially @ASH8 for such an informative treasure trove of info on how to upgrade to CP/AA.

I have a 2017 Mazda 3 (2.5L Touring) with the USB drive up front, under the A/C controls. I’ve already successfully installed the latest firmware (70.00.367 4A N). I’m toying with swapping the USB drive into the centre console under the arm rest, and putting the blanking plate up front where the USB console currently is.

Is my plan possible? Is it worth doing? I currently have a A/C vent-mounted cradle that the phone can continue to be used in, but I also like the idea of just tucking my phone away out of the way in the centre console.

If you lift up the rubber thing in the bottom of the cup holder closest to the arm rest, there’s a screw hiding under it. You need to undo that before you can lift the centre console up.

@hello: Is the desired trim removal info not included in these downloads at the hidrive server? HiDrive
Where is it located? I tried looking for it. I found the pdf GENUINEMazdaCarPlay+AndroidAutoINSTALLATION but it doesnt talk about trim removal much.

edit: I looked around some more and found some other pdfs. I will look at those now

If you lift up the rubber thing in the bottom of the cup holder closest to the arm rest, there’s a screw hiding under it. You need to undo that before you can lift the centre console up.
I got these out so far:
  • 1 screw under the cup holder
  • 2 screws under arm rest cubbby, unplugged the power for cigarette outlet
  • driver and passenger sidewall trim. I broke the driver's sidewall by accident so I've become more hesitant with the center pieces

When I try to move the cup holders, the cupholder and arm rest box moves together.

Yea I found it. I finally moved the cup holder! thank you!

My next hurdle is the wire harness clip under the cup holder. How do I safely remove it? or should i just undo the tape?

I do not know this specific one, but usually you can unclip them when you press together the two things/brackets beneath it. Try using pointed pliers or a small screw driver. Sometimes its enough to press one side and then pull at the harness clip. If its not working, just cut it or undo the tape.
