Just be careful who you are buying from. My brother bought an alleged "OEM SD Nav Card" for his Mazda6 on ebay which did not work. He bought a second from another seller which worked fine. I don't believe he ever got his money back from the first seller.Hello!!
One question, saw some OEM sd navigation card on eBay. Is it that simple? Put the sd card in the slot and it work?
If you are backing up a new or uninserted SD card to the Nav slot, I believe you can’t back it up using Mazda toolbox on the computer. The card has to be inserted first and car driven for few kms in order for the card to lock in with the vehicle. After which you can only back it up...the toolbox will look for the VIN of the car and if there’s no VIN it won’t allow the back up. Once the SD card has locked in the the car, you can’t use it in another vehicle unfortunately.Is it possible to make a backup/copy of the SD card before inserting it into the vehicle?
Wow, haven't looked at an INI file in a while!I checked and mazda update toolbox shows I am currently updated to most current version but it shows version November 2020 as the last update performed.
My story: I got an ebay card and installed Mazda update toolbox and it updated my card last month to the November 2020 update on 2/18/2021. I just tried to update it to version February 2021 but it shows no new updates available.
I went to inspect some of the SD card files and found one interesting one that shows file name BDGF66EZ1 (pic attached) which I come to find out is for a Mazda 3.
My main concern is that the navi screen in my CX9 is stretched/not the correct layout and made for the Mazda 3's 8.8" screen ike the SD card shows. This is our first Mazda ever so even tho everything looks fine to us, may very well be not correct.
My plan is to post some navi screen pics from my car tomorrow morning, hopefully someone can chime in and confirm they do look normal.
I'm afraid I'm no good to you, I have the older 8" screen. I would think that the SD card only contains map data, not the actual navigation software itself. But who knows, maybe it does.
As an aside, I just got off the phone with a Mazda dealership. It turns out my navi SD card that was causing my infotainment to reboot in extremely cold weather is covered under warranty. So the replacement card is waiting for me at the dealer. I'm curious to see what the model number is and if it has newer map data (mine is outdated, although of hand I can't remember how out dated).
