Hi.....I had a quick look on the Mazda toolbox re Sat Nav. You can update the SD card via the Mazda website for about £100
You need to remove the SD card, plug it into your laptop / computer and pay the money to receive updated Sat Nav info.

Not sure how up to date that system will be.

All the best..........Steve

The OP has an older (Gen2) system which is the same as mine. In the past it could be updated with a new card from dealers at crazy prices but I doubt that is still possible.

If you go to the Mazda UK website the nearest update option (under Mazda 3) is the 4.1" sat nav:
  https://www.mazda.co.uk/buying-owning/owning/sat-nav/
If you click that option it refers you to a dealer list.

I manage fine with its old maps but if you need something recent the best option is to use your phone or buy a sat nav.
