Latest Mazda Toolbox
« on: October 29, 2019, 06:07:47 PM »
Got an e-mail from Mazda advising that the old Mazda Toolbox (for sat nav updates) will NOT  be operational in the latest macOS Catalina. So if on macOS Catalina the latest Mazda Toolbox needs to be downloaded.

 I currently have macOS Mojave and I believe both 32bit and 64 bit applications work on it.

 I know that only 64bit application software will work with macOS Catalina.

 I am not of a mind to change to macOS Catalina at this early stage of its introduction.

 I am a bit of a dummy when it comes to IT stuff!

 Can anyone advise me I am right in thinking that the latest Mazda Toolbox is indeed 64bit and if I delete my current 32bit Mazda Toolbox application and download the latest Mazda Toolbox it to will work on macOS Mojave?

I know nothing about MacOS but Ver 5.0 of the Toolbox for Windows is still 32 bit as is the previous 4.4.

The e-mail does advise that if using Windows OS then to ignore the content. So the change does only apply to macOS. If Windows OS operates on 32bit and the toolbox for windows is 32 bit. then it appears the latest toolbox for macOS is likely to be 64bit. 

The only way for me to find out for sure was to download the version referred to in the e-mail and yes it is 64bit. 

Tried to  update my satnav Europe map, but apparently there are no available updates.
The last one I did was a Feb 2019 update. Does anyone know for sure that Feb 2019 was the latest Europe map update?
