Perhaps a pinned thread for update suggestions, and bug reports could be started, then Mazda UK could be notified to monitor it?

This thread is already pinned. As long as the subject does not get corrupted with irrelevant postings then it will remain a valued point of origin for data.

This forum is not affiliated in any way to Mazda UK. If they decide to monitor it (however unlikely) that is their prerogative.

Latest version is 56.00.512, had it installed on Thursday by the dealer. No obvious differences that I can see, and has made no difference to the wifi issues, sadly.

Mine went in for it's 12.5k service last Friday, and the system has been updated to version 513.

I've not noticed any change apart from scrolling down favourite radio stations, before I always needed to use the commander and then select, whereas now I can use the FF buttons on the steering wheel.

Unfortunately yesterday I was driving near work on well established roads but the GPS wasn't reacting to the road changes for 10 mins,  then the system rebooted. Not a problem at the time but was glad I wasn't driving abroad on unfamiliar roads. Not sure if this was related but suspect it was.

The Infotainment in my Mazda 6 used to scroll thru radio stations using the steering wheel buttons (like it's supposed to) until it was updated to 512.  It's now on 513 and still doesn't scroll thru them.  My dealer asked Mazda UK about it and apparently they're aware of the problem and there'll be an update late Sep/early Oct to fix it.  I'm not holding my breath.

Mine does through the favourites menu but need to push quickly, if I delay it reverts back to the first station in my  list.

It's annoying, if they spent a little more time developing it they'd have a decent system on their hands. Whoever decided on that type screen needs a rocket too, not good for a car display at all, especially in bright sunlight.

New firmware for the USA just released - MZD connect 59.00.441 NA Released 30/09/2016

Fingers crossed the EU version will be released soon. I don't know what the changelog is as I'm just relaying the fact it's been released.

Cheers all

I wonder if this is the version mentioned which does away with the need to use a wifi hotspot to access live services? I was told that was going to be available at the end of October.

I wonder how that's going to work? I'm making the assumption that the phone will connect as a normal wifi connection which should make the process quicker/easier/more reliable? Having said that, since I got my car on 5th September I've had no issues whatsoever with the wifi hotspot and live traffic. It's worked flawlessly so far (touches wood)

I have a 3 week old CX-5 in the UK, and it has version 56 on it. The dealer is saying that 59.00.331A-EU is not available.

Does anyone have it in the UK?!
I'm still having trouble with the Satnav, but the dealer is saying they can't find a fault - hence hoping that a new firmware would solve the issue.

As far as I know different countries have different releases. I've not been to the dealers recently, but I believe 513 is the current UK version, the 331A-EU version I would guess is EU rather than UK?

I emailed back to Mazda regarding an update to the live connection system a couple of weeks ago, aparrently it's "not ready yet..."   ::)

The new CX-5 I picked up today came with 513 installed.
