Well this is how it exactly is right now or soon, this applies in North America first and then rest of world.
Current BP Mazda 3 and DM CX-30 and DR MX-30 has latest Connect .kwi file.
Out in about a week the 2021 CX-5 and CX-9 has the same .kwi system with a new 10.3 inch screen.
So the ONLY cars that remain on Mazda Connect with .up file are..
ND MX-5
DK CX-3
DJ Mazda 2 (not sold in all markets)
And 2021 Mazda 6 and CX-3 with yes Wireless CP (not AA) coming soon which requires all new CMU ($2200), new Firmware and other parts., the Mazda 6 gets replaced with next gen model in 12 months time.
Clearly the .up firmware Connect System is on the way out, in about a year or 18 months.
Believe me once production stops so does the Firmware updates.

Changelog for 367A is out,
Also updated in server,

(From V70.00.367A and later)

*[Except English] The translation of the message for back camera is not correct.
*The Maintenance notification function (except when using Flexible setting) may stop counting after replacing the instrument cluster. It resumes counting after factory reset operation.
*The speed limit for the other direction may appear in navigation screen. To correct, the map version must be 18Q4 or later in addition to CMU update.

*The play list may not work for a USB audio device with Android 9 or later OS.
*SiriusXM radio does not work properly. (SiriusXM cannot be selected, only certain channels appear in the list, the sound turns off and/or the center display shows an error message such as “Check SiriusXM Tuner” or “Unable to Connect to SiriusXM Radio”.)
*The play list may not work for certain USB audio devices (HUAWEI P20 Pro with Android OS 8.1 etc.) when used as a USB audio device.
*The CMU may reboot when playing a CD/DVD.
*The CMU may reboot while driving.

For those interested some updates..
The Wireless CarPlay CMU used in 2021 Mazda 6 for US markets with .up firmware is Mazda Part Number TC3N-66-9C0, Android Auto is wired.

Also on the 2021 CX-5 and 9 which uses the latest .kwi firmware and look/format from the new Mazda 3 and CX-30.
Here is it's CMU (same p/n for both cars) TC3P-66-9C0A and yes both have a 10.5" Screen (different p/n).

Yes, you can. But if the car is imported from USA to EU, then some radio frequencies might not work. They are saved in the TAU (which has to be replaced -also with an adapter- to solve the issue) - see e.g. here for more details: Firmware from USA to EU
and here:

Head unit usually means CMU. And the CMUs are all the same (nearly). Radio frequencies are stored in the TAU (Tuner and Amplifier Unit). This is the module you should buy of an EU car, instead of the CMU/Head Unit.

These Details are ONLY for Genuine Mazda Factory Install of Car Play and Android Auto.

YES, you MUST Install correct 70's Firmware FIRST for your Region.
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.
I have 2016 Mazda 3 firmware 59. What is that bp mean?

What's the genuine mazda part needed?
So basically even if I upgrade successfully if I didn't install that mazda part I basically wasted my time. LOL.


All I want is to have android auto on my car. What is the best way to go? Install the tweak or update officially?

Part numbers etc. for official retrofit are linked in Ash8's signature - just follow the link and click the first folder AA... for more info.

If the tweak or official is your choice. There is an own thread for the comparison - just search for it and read it. All info is given there... e.g. here:

Well that is what my 1st post in this thread says, what 'MUST' means, I don't know of any other successful Mod to have a proper working CP/AA with updated Apps (in Phone), the genuine parts needed to do this are relatively cheap.
Firmware is free.

The kit isn't exorbitantly priced & works really well. The install may look daunting, but isn't really that difficult. Tried both, tweak & official...I'd say the genuine kit is totally worth it.

Hi,
I've got the Mazda demio 2015 japanese import. Can I install this ADR 70.00.367A update to change language to english as I'm from New Zealand? Sorry I'm new on this forum and do not have any knowledge around any of this.

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.
