'Start Conversation' Message me if you want 74.00.311A
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 File whatsoever.
You can not have ANY OTHER file or files or folders on THIS 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.
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 onto 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 INSTALL a hidden file onto YOUR 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is INCLUDED WITH 74.00.311A FIRMWARE or later for your region which is also a normal Update progression from the now outdated in your car..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 (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 $800 USD.
