For those interested Mazda updates Firmware or Software for Mazda Connect about 1 to 2 times per year.

While the MX-30 should self Firmware update via OTA (Over The Air) this is not always the case due to MX-30 owner not pairing cars Mazda Connect (CMU Connectivity Master Unit and or TCU Telematics Control Unit) with appropriate and local Phone or Mobile Carrier for many reasons, usually the main reason is the owner does not use the same company that Mazda accepts (usually only the one (1) Phone/data Carrier in and for each Country/Region).

Or you can update manually, this is usually Only done at Mazda Dealer Service dept level.
However if you as the owner of your MX-30 is competent with platform updates on your PC or Phone then in many cases you can perform factory updates in your Mazda.

While I am only talking about updating the cars CMU in this thread there are many other Control Units which can be updated and again many of these can ONLY be done by qualified Mazda Dealer Service Department techs using a specific Mazda approved laptop with installed copywritten Mazda diagnostic program called MDARS (Mazda Diagnostic and Repair Software) via a OBD II Port Mazda VCM II (Bosch made) cabled passthrough unit and laptop PC (MS Windows 64 bit OS ONLY).

The reasons for updates are like any other Software Updates is to fix bugs and or features not working correctly.
To check what is installed in your MX-30 right now is do the following..

CMU Software Version Verification Procedure
1. Turn the ignition switch to ACC mode with the push button start while
depressing the brake pedal, push the power switch to turn
the power ON (READY ON).
2. Select ”Settings” on the Home screen.
3. Select “System Setting”.
4. Select “System Information”.
5. Select “Version Information”.
6. CMU System Software version number should be listed like 11003,
Gracenote is the music title file version and updates with any new firmware.
Can ONLY update system you can Not downgrade to any earlier Versions.

In many cases unfortunately not all Mazda Dealers update your Firmware/Software as part of the normal Service Schedule. They usually only update if directed to do so by MNAO or Owner (you) complains of a particular problem with Infotainment, etc.

So I suggest you check the version running in car now by doing above.

The Current Genuine Mazda Updateable Version for MX-30 is NA02_11036 for North America.
The Current Genuine Mazda Updateable Version for MX-30 is EU02_11028 for Europe and UK, Australia/NZ/Asia/Oceania.

If your MX-30 is Below listed numbers for your Region or Country then yes you can update your cars Infotainment.
If your MX-30 is already On or Above the listed Version number for your Country or Region then obviously you can not update as only above listed file version is available.

Yes I can help you with NA02_11036 or EU02_11028 file Version if you want a downloadable copy to update yourself, please message me only, each file comes with full installation instructions in .Pdf.


It is not difficult to install and much much easier than Gen 6 in older Mazda's.
These files will not be publicly made available, however you can message me for an update file if your selling Mazda Dealer does not run the update for you.

As Mazda distribution only offers updates about 1 to 2 times per year in many cases If you have just bought your brand new MX-30 then the Version installed on the production line is always a newer or later version or a higher number than what Service Departments can offer you. On rare occasions you may have bought old model year MX-30 or your Dealer did not update during Pre Delivery Inspection (PDI).

I suggest you check annually to see if any updates are now available, if there is a later version you can if you wish update Connect yourself, again easy .Pdf Instructions are provided with download.

I am here to help you if you want and not to hinder owners or hinder Mazda, I have had many, many years experience with this brand and make of car and always own this brand of car, you will see me around on many Mazda forums usually under same user name and owned by this great forum company. So you can check out the Mazda3Revolution Forum if you wish.
Firmware Updates Mazda 3.

I do not ever and will not ever misrepresent the brand or believe in changing what is done to your car during the cars warranty period, so please do not ask me how to TWEAK Mazda Connect system as I do not ever go there.

Changelog updated ABOVE for EU02_11028.

Many of these changes would also apply in principal for USA MX-30 but it is NOT the same Firmware as USA (NA02) has, currently they are using an even later version, NA02_11036.
