PAST OWNER OF A AWD 2020 GT CX-30 ceramic coated-curently have a 100th Anniversary edition mazda 3
Hello, how did you update the firmware? Did you have to go to a dealership?If I may bring this discussion back to firmware updates - I’ve successfully updated the firmware on a U.K. CX-30 to 10047 , but (as forewarned by the update instructions) the microphone has stopped working. Has anyone else encountered this?
I’m contemplating just disconnecting the battery for a while once I find the correct wrench.
Steve, how did you update the firmware? Did you have to go to a dealership?Did my update this afternoon to our cx30 and my son's Mazda3. .. happened to both cars . I disconnected the negative battery terminal, 10mm socket. for a couple of seconds... On my son's Mazda3 we just locked the car and went back 5 minutes later and the microphone was working...
Take a look at the speed camera alert thread..
Hope this helps
just follow the instructions. make sure you use the corrrcet firmware for your countrySteve, how did you update the firmware? Did you have to go to a dealership?
I thought they could only update themselves when they had their own internet like in the US.
Oh brilliant. My car delayed due to Covid so I am all up on the Theory for all the different countries. Wasn't sure if we could do it here in UK without going into dealership! Thank you Steve
its a ten minute job, but if the car hasn't been picked up yet make sure the update is done at the pdi.... its needed as it adds the speed camera alerts...Oh brilliant.

Did you have to add this yourself or does it load on its own?New CMU firmware (12002, updated from 10048) was updated on my CX-30 today. The only difference I’ve noticed so far is that when “Favorites” are brought up in the display with the Favorite shortcut button below the volume knob and you select a “Favorite”, the Favorite selection screen remains on the screen instead of changing to the Music screen, with your chosen Favorite being played and displayed. The benefit is that you can “easily“ change which Favorite to play with fewer steps. Just highlight your next Favorite choice and select it. You can jump back and forth between Favorite choices. You can touch the “Music” shortcut button at any time to bring the current Music screen up on the screen.
What prompted this update is that I had been experiencing a very intermittent issue with my phone not connecting through CarPlay (definitely not a USB cable issue) over the last three months. The other day it did it again. I methodically troubleshot the issue this time and found that when using the front USB port, my phone wouldn’t recognize it was connected in any way (Three different known good cables tried). When connected through the center storage USB port, the phone would be recognized in terms of it starting to charge it’s battery and a message came up in the Infotainment screen, “Unable to connect to Apple CarPlay”.
I tried connecting my phone multiple times (and with 3 different cables) and the results were the same. I tried rebooting my phone, turning the car off and back on (including opening and closing the driver’s door) with no change in symptoms. At this point, I continued my drive and about 15 minutes later I stopped at a store for about 10 minutes (car doors locked). Unlocked car, started car, connected my phone to the front USB port with the original USB cable and every thing worked normally again. It then continued to work over two days and trips totally 200 miles. This has been my experience about three times over the last three months.
I mentioned this to the technician at my dealer today when I brought my car in for a scheduled oil change. He told me he could find no definitive information but that there was new firmware (12002) which he downloaded into my car.

It was done by the dealer technician. He did mention using a USB memory stick as mentioned in other threads here for those who want to try to do it themselves. The firmware is a newer level than anything I could find being mentioned on this forum or the Mazda 3 forums.Did you have to add this yourself or does it load on its own?
The Gracenote database file can be downloaded from the Mazda web site and updates using a USB drive and the regular menu on the infotainment screen.I did mine this morning from a USB stick I borrowed from a technician. I was told that there are different updates for turbo cars ---the files for the turbo cars will not load on normally aspirated cars.
The only visible difference appears to be the Gracenote database version. View attachment 1711
I believe the 7th gen system is based on android, as when I was poking around the diagnostic screens I saw references to AOSP, android open source. Will probably take some more poking then normal as I'm sure panasonic has the new system locked down tight.Nope not yet 😔. I wish someone would Mod the new 7th Gen system like they did on previous MZD connect.
