"if it seems too good to be true..........." I have some concerns:

  • what is the catch?
  • how can you sell something that is only a quarter of the price of the original from the dealer? Is there something missing?
  • is it legit?
  • wouldn't the system know it's not from a dealer and cause problems?
  • where do you go for the free updates? I read that you go through Mazda (Toolbox) and create account, so wouldn't it verify that your SD card is not an original dealer card? Or is there a different way of doing the update.

I got my navigation SD card from eBay about two months ago when I though it was worth taking a chance for $45 when I was in the market for a Mazda 3. Ended up getting a CX-30, which uses the same part number (there is a new suffix now, but the original part number worked in my case). At that time there were a number of sellers selling the same part number for around the same price.

The packaging and card looked legit and the card has worked flawlessly. I updated the card to the December maps which was straightforward. As to ”what’s the catch“, I can only imagine how the sellers acquired merchandise. While the navigation is nice, I tend to use Waze or Apple Maps (really liking the new stop light/stop sigh references on the maps and directions...”turn right at the next light”). I really like how the Mazda navigation allows the speed limit signs to show up in the heads up display. Unfortunately the Mazda navigation data base (Here?) isn’t as complete or accurate as Apple Maps or Waze.

I paid $38 for a navigation card on eBay. Having turn-by-turn directions on the Heads-up display is sweet ! Also having your destination 'favorites' available from the favorites button, and polished voice navigation reflects Mazda's attention to detail. I agree Google Maps or Waze is more up-to-date and detailed, but Mazda navigation for casual use is very convenient and integrated.

The dealership wants $449.99 for this navigation SD Card, which I think is ridiculous, but please let us know how you are able to sell it so cheap if you do not mind. Really sounds like a good bargain if it works now and a year from now.

Update:
I was able to buy a card for $49 on ebay

Ok i just received the sd card from eBay yesterday and I did do the upgrade and it was success. GPS works good. Show speed on my dash and tells you if you over speed limit. Honestly I was skeptical about buying something from ebay and way cheaper than from the dealer. So I'm impressed that it works great on my 2020 CX30.
