Hii all,

I have tryed making connection with the car with OBD but didn't work, also other people have the same issue.

I think its a bad thing electric cars will not work with OBD 2. We get the same problem as before OBD

But now i want to connect with the car and see if there are changes that can be made through software.

For example i want to change the way to D plus and minus react on this car.

If anyone knows how to connect to the car or how to change software on this car please let me know.

Thanks.

I would be very, very careful on what you connect to OBD II Port and what aftermarket stuff you put on car and what you try and 'change'.

These cars today are not even the same as a few years back.

You can not 'Change' the Software, most of Module Updates are done ONLY via MDARS Software via Mazda Dealer Portal Access, or you pay for access in some countries, but you must also have an approved VCM II, stay away from cheap Chinese Pass Throughs.

IF you want to update Mazda Connect Firmware you can, BUT car must have an older version than what you are trying to updating with.

To find out what Connect Version NUMBER is in car now do this...
1. Turn the ignition to ACC or to ON.
2. Select ”Settings” on the Home screen.
3. Select “System Setting”.
4. Select “System Information”.
5. Select “Version Information”.
6. See 'System Software'
Version Number like 11007 is revealed.

I have EU02_11020...see this thread..

For me its also to know the car and learn from it.

I can understand that these cars are completely different specially the "technology" part of cars, but i want to see what's possible.

It also doesn't matter if it need to be done by Mazda itself but I think it would be nice to change the settings for the different D modus for example, something I will ask on my next garage visit in a month or 2.
It can be similar as throttle mapping for example to fit your driving style/needs.

And same as with OBD2 i dont buy cheap readers they can mess up a lot.

And thanks about the firmware part, will check it on my car and see.

Can tell now a Mazda Dealer will not look at your request while car is under warranty and wont after warranty as they do not do mapping or changing of anything apart from what MMC does via TSB's and MDARS, like ECU, and Module updates.
This is the Genuine Mazda VCMII I own and got when working at Dealer, they now retail for $1795.00 USD, and used with MDARS for 7th Gen cars and also Mazda IDS for all other OBDII.
