Wink Update Version Number

timmonsr,

The update I just got on my Mazda 3 was version 25.00.400B. This was on recall number MSP41.

Knock on wood, so far everything seems to be working.

Thank you. Mine is version 20.00.007. I have an appointment tomorrow for an upgrade.

Now if I could only get a copy of 25.00.400B binary to patch (to maybe allow touch panel operation when moving).

No, the update doesn't change that. Actually I think it blocks more system access while driving. Makes no sense to me when you can have the passenger using the system access.... If anyone learns of a fix for this please post!

There needs to be a fix for this numerous times with my last car my wife would put in a new address while are traveling pulling over in heavy traffic to have to do this is crazy and is more dangerous than anything else!

Default Another way to make Navigation go beserk

Just got the Infotainment system upgrade. It now counts down on the screen as it calculates route (don't remember it doing that before). Anyway, if you push the select button while it is still counting down, it can give really bad directions (like when I wanted to go South, it said to exit at every exit, cross over, go North on Interstate 30 miles, then exit, cross over and go back South). So for every minute I got closer to my destination going South, the arrival time increased 2 minutes. The funniest thing it said was "Go back."

Eskimosand is correct. MSP41 is an infotainment center update meant to fix some of these bugs. To find out if your vehicle is subject to this recall, call the service dept. with your vin number and have them check.

The version 25.00.400 fix still locks up all I/O sometimes. USB ports say they are in use with nothing plugged in and it does not recognize the Navigation SD card. Would pulling the right fuse reboot the system?

Yeah, the update does not completely solve the issues. It's usable, though.

My issues are more on the communication with bluetooth smartphone(samsung note3).

The touch screen freezes when there is an incoming call and there is no way that I can answer the phone or enter numbers to call back.

Music play sometimes get stuck and I can not skip to the next/previous songs. During music play, touch screen often freezes.

Very occasionally(maybe 1-2 out of 10), navigation voice goes copletely mute (but no longer half-mute) like before.

USB drive issues still seems to persist (I can not list the details as I gave up on trying the USB)

Extremely rarely, I still experience the shutdown of the infotainment system.

I am not even gonna bother to fix the above issues as I know my dealership service will just rebut/neglect my request in the blink of an eye unless the issues are definite. I love the new Mazdas so much but I never liked the services.
