This Thread is NOT for Tweaks or ANY other way to install CP/AA (which does not work anyway and usually will end up costing you more $$s).
TAKE NOTE!!! :
You can not rename THE downloaded File Name whatsoever.
You can not have ANY OTHER file or files or folders on the USB 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 ONLY in .up file.
IF still having issues of car CMU not seeing files on your USB Flash Drive when you plug into console port remove drive and do a Full FAT32 re-format of your Flash Drive.
On a Windows PC do this to format..
Put small <16GB USB Drive into Windows USB Port, go to Start, This PC, RIGHT Click on the Flash Drive, Select Format.., Select FAT32, Select Start, click OK, all files on Drive will be Deleted and Drive Re-Formatted (cleaned).
Then Copy/Paste the new Firmware file(s) ONLY onto clean Flash Drive, remove from PC and try in your car USB Port again.
IF you are using any MacOS PC to download file then that WILL also corrupt your Flash Drive as Macs INSTALL a ''hidden file'' onto YOUR flash drive and the 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.
IF YOU ARE STILL HAVING ISSUES OF YOUR MAZDAs CMU NOT SEEING YOUR USB FLASH DRIVE with .up Files THEN CHANGE YOUR FLASH DRIVE BRAND or USE A DIFFERENT FLASH DRIVE and START AGAIN!.
From November 10th, 2022.
Latest Update is 74.00.324A EU N at the moment ONLY available for EU N markets!!
The following symptoms can be improved by the latest software (Ver. 74.00.324A).
Improved symptoms depend on current software versions.
• If the shift lever is operated quickly while displaying CarPlayTM screen, the rear view screen may not return to CarPlayTM screen.
• When the gear position is shifted into P from R, the screen may not return to the previous condition before shifting into R position.
WIRELESS Carplay is INCLUDED WITH 74.00.311A FIRMWARE or later for your region which is also a normal Update progression from the now outdated software in your car.
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 this 74 Firmware and a NEW CMU (one meant for WCP), as far as I know those TWO things are all that are required with some minor cable port plug in modifications, the Firmware is Free and a New WCP CMU is about $800 USD.
