When I click on the link to download this version there are three files. Do I download all three or just the 70.00.335C file.

Thanks

You are in Utah which is USA that takes NA N Firmware..
I take it this is the link from Post 1 x#05 above..
https://my.hidrive.com/share/hsodpqj...20all%20MAZDAs
Look at the start of Post 2, you will see the Server Page Screenshot Image, Click on the Top Right 'View' for a ''LIST VIEW'' of the files...
1 is the .UP File you Need, and the other 2 are .Pdf Files, One is Installation Instructions and the Other is a list of the ChangeLogs, all the updates up to and including 70.00.335C (NA N) the one you want to install....download 1 file at a time so it is not grouped in a .Zip format.
Just follow the PDF Install Instructions EXACTLY, Hash Checksum your Downloaded File and then put on a FAT32 USB Flash Drive 16 GB is good, DO NOT USE ANY Mac (Apple PC) see above Post 2 tells you why, IF you use an Apple PC your CMU will NOT SEE the File when you go and Search for it.

READ the instructions a FEW Times, DO ALL of the 1 to 30 Numbered Tasks.
Most important thing is DO NOT Let the CMU Turn Off, touch Pedal Every 20 minutes or 10 minutes if you want to, use a Countdown Timer.

Thanks ASH8 for the write up. My 18 had CarPlay/AA already when I bought it. I updated the software following the instructions because I've gotten the black screen twice so far. Time will tell if it truly fixed that problem.

Wanted to quickly share my results:

Super easy, which is saying something for me considering I'm not the most computer savvy person on the Planet.

Only issue I ran into was (originally) using a USB stick with 256 GB. Because it is exFAT the car would not recognize it. MUST be 16 or 32 GB FAT32. After reformatting to 16 GB FAT32 it worked perfectly.

Actual installation/download time was about 25 minutes. I'm guessing the shorter download time was because the Drive is a 3.0 not 2.0? Everything works perfect

Our car has been to the dealer once. That was to have the AA/CP installed. Just saved wasting a day doing this at home instead of having to return to the dealer.


Thanks again.
