Ive had a look through the forums but cant find anyhthig much although sorry if this has been covered before. Welcome to the site. You need to update the maps and traffic cameras online on your Sd card. Is there no way of getting live updates though? I saw something about tomtom live in the manual but cant find anything about it in the menus? I've never used the Live service, but I wonder if it only gives you 'live' traffic info etc rather than automatically updating the maps.
I do it manually with the SD card in the home PC and it takes a good long time so I can't imagine it would be very effective trying to do it in-car. BigAl Sr. Too CX'y TomTom do offer a live system, but you have to buy a subscription, which is or was separate for the mapping updates. I used it for three years, it was a lot better that the current MZD system. MikeTB Jr. I just updated my TomTom on my CX5.
You need to register with TomTom. I don't need Live where I live and it doesn't work anyway. I paid for both updates as I was planning a long run in England. Only problem was the Live update took 3 days to arrive it automatically connects to the SatNav so it only worked on my return journey. I have found the system works really well.
If it knows of a problem it offers to change the route and quickly updates.
SD slot in the CX-5?
If you miss a turn accidentally or deliberately it quickly works out how to get back to the correct route. Turning motorways off when you have time to spare provides interesting routes. Only complaint is their support has gone downhill lately. Quote from: twabrigs on December 15,am. Mazda CX-5 Forums. SMF 2.

SD slot in the CX-5? Thread starter inodes Start date Mar 5, Two very quick questions that I know someone out there will be able to find out as I can see from replies, this is among the most well informed of all Mazda forums on the net Near the door on the driver side on the higher end models is an SD slot. Does anyone know what this is? Secondly, while using the TomTom navigation system I noted a section for traffic. I am familiar with the TomTom traffic system as I have it enabled on my iPhone's TomTom, but that uses internet to get up to date traffic information.
I couldn't figure out how the CX-5 was going to a log into TomTom to confirm a traffic subscription and b download traffic information. Anyone have any information or better still, references from owner's handbooks? It is for the GPS, probably on all models, mine is a Touring and it is there. I think all they have have to do to add navi is install the card and maybe some software The navi is much improved over my 10 Mazda3.
This one is actually pretty useful and user friendly to boot. Macdaddytn said:. The slot is like others here are saying, it's for the navigation system. Contains map information. It also showed construction zones. Not sure if that is the full traffic feature of the TomTom system but it was helpful.Welcome, Guest. Please login or register.

Anyone know how to confirm that the contents of an updated SD card have been copied onto the system in the car? The reason I ask is that once I reinsert the card updated via TomTom home in the slot in the car and turn the ignition either fully on or to the accessory setting, the screen does not show the system update progress bar illustrated in the handbook ie the egg timer.
The satnav screen eventually appears after around a minute and it appears to function correctly but I am unsure whether that is with, or without, the updates.
And is it ever necessary to copy any files from the "Manage Mazda Navigation System Install items from computer" in TomTom home onto the card? Looking at the files on the computer they appear to be older than current ones loaded on the card which is logical since they come from a back-up of the card MikeTB Jr.
I seem to remember seeing an updating indication originally, but now as you say there is just a short delay and it comes on. I think one of the updates changed things. One obvious change from the original is the 3D imaging at major junctions.
Still not a friendly system. Trying to set a destination is hit and miss. Couldn't get it to find Gatwick Airport! Mike, many thanks for your reply. I wonder then if a software upgrade carried out in March changed everything Must say we have had no problems with the satnav as yet, we use it extensively in Spain and touch wood, it has guided us quickly and accurately to where we wanted to go.

I can't connect my car plus it told me to put my SD card in my card reader in my computer, so please tell me how do I update my SD card? AndrewPaterson Posts: 1 [Apprentice Traveler].

For more information about updates, please see Update options for your navigation device Cheers, Mikko. April I'm having the exact same problem. The answers above have not helped me at all. I've inserted the card into the SD slot and It just sits there, telling me to connect my device. Bob Maui Posts: 3 [Neophyte Traveler].
Windows 10 does recognize the card and I have no issue reading files from the card. I've searched and found several things to try but none have worked either.
There is obviously an issue with their software given the number of complaints. Glad I'm not the only one. I must have spent two hours yesterday trolling through the forums, trying various things that were supposed to work, but like you I had no luck. I'm even more frustrated with Mazda. And for the first year or two, they did. But now they say they never told me that, and that it's all my responsibility.
