Installed it a few days ago. All is working for me and had no issues during install
With previous FW 70.xx I had an intermittent issue with Android phone detection via USB cable.
Now it seems to be working fine.
I haven't seen any new features, as there was no changelog (your link does not work).

Thanks for letting me know. It seems that all the links are not working. I even tried the URL for the 70.00.367A and it won't render ATM.

This was the URL for the Mazda firmware: HiDrive

As mazdacat mentioned above, the download file is not available at HIDrive. Hopefully this is a temporary problem.

Looks like this link is dead now too, anyone have a link to a new firmware? I'm stuck on 70.00.xxx and would love to upgrade to get CarPlay activated.
It doesn't look like ASH8 is going to continue the updates either. I have been lurking the Mazda3 Revolution post which links this. I have been using it to update my infotainment, which uses the same infotainment firmware as the CX-30. I was updating as files get posted.
 
I have a Mazda CX-9 2019 gsl. I want to know if I need to replace the usb hub, the dealer refuses to update my firmware. I cannot find the updated version. I was in 70.00.367A. Can someone send me the file for N_74.00.230A update version?

Is anyone able to send me this update? Finally saved up enough for the OEM CarPlay upgrade to install myself, but need to update firmware ….

Thank you in advance!
 
Hi, I recently got a mazda CX 5 which is currently running on a 70.0.0.XXX firmware and I would like to upgrade this. I would really appreciate it if someone could privately share the NA N_74.00.230A-UPDATE.UP file with me. Thanks in advance.
 
I would also like to update to NA N 74.00.230A if someone happens to have the file on hand and would be willing to share. Thanks
 
Hi. Newbie here from Australia. Just got a secondhand CX-5 with firmware version 59.00.545 4A N. I've bought the OEM hardware for Carplay/AA, but can't find the firmware I need. I understand I'd have to install 4A N 70.00.100A-FAILSAFE.UP then 4A N70.00.100A-REINSTALL.UP before I could then install one of the newer single file installations (about 4A N_70.00.367A-UPDATE.UP for my region, I think). Anyone got working links for these, or able to share would be hugely appreciated.

Would also very much appreciate a link to the new firmware. I'm sure the dealer charge to have them do it will be ridiculous.
