2017 DAB Radio
« on: June 16, 2017, 08:00:45 PM »
I am 2 months into owning a new Eternal Blue Mazda 3 2.0 Sport having traded up from 2014 SE-L. Have been a bit disappointed with the DAB radio not showing information text about tracks being played as every DAB radio i have ever come across seems to do this. Have also had trouble with system regularly rebooting shortly after start up. Anyway on contacting dealer i was told that a new s/w update has just been released which i have had installed today and problems seem to have been fixed. upgrade from version 59.443 to 59.502.

If it's any consolation (which it won't be) my'17 radio is exactly the same. One of the good things about DAB is finding new songs/artists, so really doesn't help that this information is not displayed.

She who must be obeyed took delivery of her new VW up - doesn't have sat nav but at least you know who you're listening to on DAB. #frustrating.

Mine was the same but get your dealer to update the software on your MZD and
that cures the problem. :) :) :)

My husbands 2016 Mazda MX5 ND has :-
OS Version 56.00.100 EU N
Music Database Version 00.05.000
Failsafe Version 56.00.100
The DAB radio does show information text about tracks being played.

My  2017 Mazda 3 Sport Nav has:-
OS Version 59.00.443 EU N
Music Database Version 00.07.000
Failsafe Version 59.00.443
The DAB radio does NOT show information text about tracks being played.
 
Interesting to note that version 59.502 mention by “witty” should solve the problem in the my new Mazda 3

I take it updated version 59.502 “witty” mentions would probably read OS Version  59.00.502 EU N.

Would have thought Music Database Versions would be more relevant to  Music track text than the Operating System, but must say that I really am not technically competent in these matters and it could be that the one update version does both OS & Music database update.
 
Can anyone advise me if the software updates are different for the OS and the Music Database and should the Dealerships automatically include OS & Music Database software updates in annual Services?
