SYMPTOMS
The following symptoms can be improved by the latest software (Ver. 74.00.324A).
Improved symptoms depend on current software versions.

• When the gear position is shifted into P from R, the screen may not return to the previous condition before shifting into R position.

ALSO NOTE: Do not rely on your Mazda Dealer to update your Firmware for Connect as most never will unless you complain of a specific issue or fault.

You must Message me for links, click on my Avatar.
I've literally been going through threads for hours just to try to pm you and I couldn't because I was a new member :D
As I can not edit my Original Thread on Mazda 6 Carplay and Android Auto installation, please note the following....

On what VERSIONS (number) of Firmware to Install as the Policy and Procedure Has Changed!

The FINAL Install Procedure is now Only a 1 (one) File Install...
(For All Mazda Models already with .up Firmware in use)


IF YOUR MAZDA 6 has .up FIRMWARE VERSION Number ON or ABOVE
55.00.650A (for NA N or North America) or
the 56.00.100 (for EU N or 4A N) Europe/UK and Australia/NZ and Middle East etc.
or 58.00.310A or any 59.00.502A or 59.00.650A,
or any 70's Firmware like 70.00.021A, 70.00.100A or 70.00.110 or
70.00.150A or 70.00.335C or 70.00.367A or 74.00.230A or 74.00.311A.

THEN YES YOU CAN UPDATE DIRECTLY to 74.00.324A for the LATEST FIRMWARE.

You now NO LONGER Need to also Update with the pair of
70.00.100A Firmware Files First Before updating to the FINAL 74.00.xxxx.

This is now a SINGLE FILE (1) ONLY INSTALLATION for
YOUR REGION or COUNTRY,


MUST USE EITHER ONE of...

NA N_74.00.324A-UPDATE.UP (North America ONLY)
or
EU N_74.00.324A -UPDATE.UP (Europe/UK)
or
4A N_74.00.311A-UPDATE.UP (ADR, AU. NZ, ME, Asia) (74.00.324A for 4A N is NOT AVAILABLE Yet)

THIS IS THE LATEST GENUINE FIRMWARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE
FROM MAZDA JAPAN As Of December 30th, 2022.

I am looking to update from 74.00.311 to 74.00.324A. I read somewhere in this forum that with this update we don't need to a separate Gracenote Music update is that correct?
Please can you let me know the two parts that are needed to go with the firmware upgrade to get Android Auto working on Mazda cx-5

🤔. I don't think so. The post says that as long as you're above 59.xx.xxx, you NO LONGER NEED 2 files (The OS & the failsafe files). I think you will still need to update the Grace note separately.

I recently got ridiculously lucky in getting my 2017 Mazda6 Touring a couple of months ago with under 30k miles! I know, what's wrong with it right? Anyways, I've been going nuts trying to figure out the latest updates and so many were referencing old posts from over a year old! My car is soooo out of date. I finally, somehow, stumbled on this site and was so happy that someone actually knows what they are talking about! This is awesome! Im so glad I found this site! I would love to have the latest firmware please! View attachment 248013

UPDATE: I was such an idiot. If you want the firmware update, you MUST private message @ASH8 . Asking for it in the thread will not help you get it. I eventually learned this by READING the thread. Stop asking by posting! private message @ASH8 . If you can't private message because you are new to the website, keep replying on threads until you can private message.
er about 24 hours you click on MY Avatar NAME "ASH8", then see the "Message" or "Start conversation" IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER, Click on it , this is how you Priva
can you please send me the link too please. Thank you
Are there any reviews on x.324A EU N?

Faster? Slower? Improvements?
This is just what I am looking for. I have 70.00.200 EU N in a Mazda 6 Tourer 2.2D 184bhp Sport Nav+ and I'm posting so that I can PM tomorrow 😁

Hi all,



thanks for all your help on the Mazda connect upgrades.



I'm just bought a Mazda CX-5 and it comes with an old 59.00.449 EU N version.



As it doesn't support Android Auto, i'm looking to upgrade it to the latest version available.



When reading one the post from @ASH8, i noticed that i can upgrade it directly, is it correct?



What are the steps required? Is there any links that u can share?

I couldn't find the link to download V74.00.324A firmware. can you guys tell me where can I download it?

Thanks a lot in advance and keep helping Mazda drivers to have a better experience

You need to upgrade to 70 first, but then after that you can - though it may all be in the same .up package now - I've seen that both in Reddit and here - so I assume it'll update you to 70 then to 74 in one sweep.

Hi, is it possible for you to send me the update for 74.00.310A NA
Hi,

Would you be able to PM the needed files to update from version 59 to the new 74. I'm attempting to bring my North American NA 2016 Mazda 6 into the present day.

Thanks,
Thanks for all the info - hoping to update this weekend.
