    Default Mazda Satnav Updates

    Thought I would create a new thread instead of hijacking the other.
    I came to update my maps as the car has 3 years warranty (runs out in September 2019)
    when I got the car I registered the SD card and got a new map update, your allowed 3 per year
    so last week I went to update the maps to be told that my subs had expired?
    a quick call to Mazda connect and they told me that the subs should run with the length of the warranty
    She then told me to take the car back to Mazda Skipton and they will look into it.

    So I will update this thread once ive been there.

    My next question is that Mazda want 100 for a 1 off update.
    on ebay you can get cards around 50 that last 3 years.
    My SD card says Maps by Navteq, but the ones on ebay say different makes
    Here & TomTom. Will these SD cards that have different maps work in my mazda satnav ?

    Can only confirm what you have said, I plugged in my SD card and mine didn't even say I had a version of maps it was just blank? but yet my Sat-Nav still works. I called up my local Mazda and they quoted 120 for a single update and or 150/180 for a 3-year subscription service. Mine rand out back in 2017. Tempted to hack it and put custom software on it. Mainly so you can use the bloody touch screen when going above 4mph

    I tried to find a version of maps but in the end, gave up as I didn't want to brick the SD card or knowing my luck fudge the car right up. Your sat nav is the MZD-connect one isn't it? same as mine and I'm guessing they will have their own version of maps and not linked to Here and TomTom versions of maps.

    Got an eBay seller. Very informative. Says the here maps are compatible. So if I get no joy from the dealers I'll go down that route . Excuse the pun.
