Hi,
I'm using some of AIO tweaks and they are great.
It inspired me to think if it would be possible to add speedcams as you drive when you see them and started to work on a solution.
And there it is!
Recently I've developed TravelPal, a free App that presents travel data AND lets create custom Speed cameras on the fly and select speed limit. App will provide alert when you pass them again.
It works even if there's no Navi SD card. App uses well known list speedcam.txt if it exists or creates it's own. Redundant speedcams can be removed from the list.
The App works very well on my 2015 Mazda 6 with FW 56.00.100 EU.
It uses EU/US units and can be adapted to any local language by adding translation to lang file.
It would be great if anyone could try it on other cars in Europe and US.
App uses pure javascript and shell script to transfer data through websocket.
All necessary files to install and also some screenshots can be found on my github/pitrock2000, link:
GitHub - pitrock2000/TravelPal: Travel Info and User Speedcams for Mazda Infotainment System

Thanks to All who created original tweaks.
Please let me know your thoughts or questions.

One thing bothers me at this offer... for this official AA/CP you need to install any FW 70 or higher. But if you have FW 31 - 56.00.100 NA Mazda officially recommends to install 70.00.100 first, before updating to a higher version (like 70.00.367 or 74.00.230). And this they do not tell you in their offer. So I would check which version I have installed. If it is between 31.00.100 - 56.00.100 I would install 70.00.100 first, before updating to a higher version, which maybe is on their offered usb stick. Just saying, that you can avoid problems with or even bricking your CMU.
And if you have a version installed below 31.00.100 then update to that one first.

New to the forum. Looking to install a Genuine Mazda Android Auto/Carplay upgrade in my mother's 2017 CX-5. Her current firmware is 59 (don't have the exact version in front of me, but I know it's 59). What would be the best firmware to update it to? This is in North America. Thank you!

Hi, everybody.

I got a log from the console that says:

Code:

As far as I understand, the file "image-vip_appvfbl.mot" contains the firmware for this VIP, which is transmitted over the XMODEM protocol, but it was not transmitted completely.
And now its firmware is damaged, I see that renesas chips can be flashed via serial connection and the mot files can be extracted from the updates. The question is which mot file to use? or why it can not be programmed via reflash_app in the first place? Also it seems renesas chips can have serial bootloader as well.
I have this problem too. Did someone can resolved it?
Thank...
