Mazda IDS Software Update through the Internet:

 

Purpose

Mazda IDS will be delivered every other month and there are several cases that you are required to use IDS by timely updating to the latest level until you get the next version of IDS.

(Example)

– Perform reprogramming to fix vehicle quality issues as per our Service Information

– Properly identify newly released vehicle after we fixed the database for the current IDS software.

 

Note:

Calibration files must be loaded via the Internet when required in the actual reprogramming process.

 

Mazda IDS update numbering

The version information after update can be viewed on the Information screen.

Software updates will be numbered in the following way:

IDS – release number.update number (for example, IDS-60.01)

The larger update number represents newer software version.

 

Precaution before update

Verify that your IDS software version is the same as a release number of the latest release IDS for proper update.

It takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete the update. The time varies depending on the capacity of update file, network speed, and the condition of your laptop PC.
