Got my 3 week old 6 back from the dealer this morning. I had to drop it off late yesterday due to a screw in the tire. When the service writer brought over the paperwork, he mentioned that they would add Apple Car Play while they looked at my tire. It came up automatically when they inputed my VIN into the paperwork. He also said mine was the first car to undergo the add at this dealership (I'm in NJ).

I got a loaner and returned at lunch today. Nothing was upset in the car. No scratches, marks or any real changes (save a few fingerprints on the screen). Everything works as advertised, but I'm not sure about the power level of the USB port, as charging seems slow.

Apple Maps does NOT work with HUD (unless I'm missing something), but everything else is very easy and responsive with the control commander knob. Takes a little adjustment to get used to but I like it better than using the screen.

The next step will be anxiously awaiting the IOS 12 update, as it will integrate WAZE and Google Maps, as well as many other 3rd party apps. Let me know if anyone has more questions....so far so good.

Lucky, I think you might be the first one to have it dealer installed. All my local dealers are saying October and some say January 2019!!!

Maybe I've missed it, but can this hardware be installed in a 2016? If so, I know they'll charge for it. But wasn't certain if the 2016/2017 drivers are waiting on a different upgrade option.

It will be the same hardware, it's just a matter of when your dealer may be willing/allowed to sell you the parts or perform the upgrade if they prioritize 2018s for free retrofits first. I'll be calling my dealer as soon as they've moved on to the 2017s

For those International Buyers who want a source of supply Paul at Mazmart.com (USA) will have stocks by next Thursday 6th Sept in store
He is selling for $192 USD plus Shipping.
He only sells the US NA N kit, but I am confident that the USB Cable will be OK, for ADR 4A N or EU N regions.

Had my 5K mike oil change done this morning and my dealer has received less information than we have gotten just in this thread. No word on when they might get parts and they aren’t booking any upgrade appointments until they get something concrete from Mazda USA. They also wouldn’t confirm my vehicle’s eligibility for the free upgrade until they get something in writing from Mazda regarding this program.

Checked my firmware after my appointment and they didn’t update it yet in anticipation of the upgrade. Maybe it won’t work right without the new hardware? I’m still on OS version 59.00.504 NA N.

Do you know all the part #'s for NA yet? Last time on M3Rev, they weren't sure of the USB part # compatible with NA cars.

North America, USA, Canada, Mexico, known as 'NA N' on your Touch-screen.
1. FIRMWARE version for 'NA N' for CP/AA of two .up files.
cmu150_NA_70.00.021B_failsafe.up file MUST be Installed FIRST.
cmu150_NA_70.00.021B_reinstall.up file MUST be Installed SECOND.
2. C922-V6-605 New USB Data Cable set of two, MUST be Installed THIRD.
3. TK78-66-9U0C New AUX Unit, MUST be Installed LAST.

Firmware is over @ 3 Rev Forum.

These part numbers do ALL Mazda's with Mazda Connect, Mazda 2,3,6, CX-3,5,8,9, MX-5.
Irregardless what a Mazda Dealer might say right now, they just have not been told yet.
We have CX-3 and MX-5 and CX-5 owners who have installed this New 70's firmware and these parts above and all is working perfectly in USA.
