I have not seen a designated thread for updating the firmware for Mazda connect systems. I read about it elsewhere but was unsuccessful in doing the update. Has anyone gave it a try? I'm currently running version 10048.

I have not looked specifically, but the software should update automatically.

Yep I read up on that on another form probably from the same guy. Trying to update to 11002 the same Link in files you just posted above I was unsuccessful. The system didn't recognize any KWI files on the USB. I will give it another fresh try later on this morning.

Yep, ASH8 is active on several Mazda fora. Try with another stick, FAT 32 formatted and not NTFS!

Not yet. I do have a changelog of what's supposed to be fixed. I'm about to take my car for a drive in a bit I'll post an update. What I was hoping for is the radio to show the next street, as it used to in my cx-3.. without having to go to the actual navigation

This is great. Can you upload the procedures too? I could not read the ones the other guy posted.

Are you going to pursue the PCM update ad well?

PCM is the Powertrain Control Module. I guess there is a PCM update available that helps smooth out some of the transmission issues that many of us have been experiencing...in turn making the tranny "smoother" in nature. I have a text in to my dealer about this.

Regarding these software/ firmware updates --- shouldn't this be something that the dealership/service dept. be responsible for performing during routine servicing of the vehicle? Has anyone made that request at their dealership?

You would imagine that would be the case, however dealerships do not like to do software updates for some reason and will only do it normally if you are experiencing a known issue with your vehicle.

I did yesterday and they applied the PCM update during the 8k inspection service and I do notice a difference and iv been watching the cylinder deactivation screen under the energy flow montier while driving and it seems to work better at lower and higher speeds and as well the transmission is allot smoother.

Unfortunately that is proprietary Mazda software that only the dealerships have on the technicians laptop that plugs into the OBD-ll port on the vehicle and there for the dealership has to apply any software updates to the PCM.

That's very useful info, thanks 'Detailcarguy'. I'm scheduled for an oil change in two weeks, I'll ask the Mazda Service tech about updating the PCM. Only hope the U.S.A. dealerships are as accommodating as your Canadian dealership.

Not a problem and I guess I'm lucky in the aspects that the iv worked for the dealership and left on very good terms and they also sell Nissan and that's what I came from after owning two so they are very good to me and I hope you have a good experience with getting software updates at your dealership.
