Mazda 3 / Re: Buying Advice Pls ?

The SD card has the nav data on it, if the car is advertised as a nav make sure it is included as they can be fearsomely expensive. They are in a special format so you can't use any old card.

Not sure if updates are included if you just buy the card, best to check with Mazda. FYI, 3 year subscription for Map and Connected services updates are around £245, depending on the exchange rate (you have to buy on line from Hungry so the cost is in Euro's).

Oh and make sure its the 16gb SD card as the 8gb SD card is no longer able to accept the latest map updates.

You need the official Mazda card in the slot and working before you purchase anything.

If you buy the same thing from Mazda it can be 700 quid(!).

Definitely one to be aware of, I believe that cost includes future updates, not sure what the score is if you buy an Ebay card for updates.
£700 !?! “You cannot be serious !” lol, that even for lifetime of the car updates is just rediculous !?,
I didn’t read the details, but I’m assuming the ebay card is just for the advertised year ?

Thanks for that, good point, they are about £45 for 2018 updates on eBay, i thought it was another input for music as it’s next to the Aux input and usb sockets.

The reversing camera on the hatchback is situated above the rear number plate near to where you open the tailgate. It's just a small square shaped object, not that noticeable unless you really look.   

Thanks, I can see it now, as you look at it, it’s slightly to the left of the centre of the Mazda badge, want to be able to check, as some dealers descriptions are not always accurate, one described a car as having six speakers in one paragraph, then nine in another! Cheers

If it's a Sport Nav you're after they all have the Bose sound system with 9 speakers.

It is a SportNav I’m after, is the SD card slot for playing music through the Bose System ?

Think the reversing camera is standard on that reg Sportnav.

Yes, it seems to have been introduced during 65 plate cars, what’s the sd card slot for in the centre console ?
