So, new (2017) 124 owner as of tomorrow and I'm anxious to make this my first update to the car!
With 41 pages of commentary, I want to make sure I'm using the latest and greatest info! Can someone please fact-check me here?
I want to user Ameridan's guide here:
And hardware-wise (besides tools) I just need:
Replacement USB cables: Mazda Part C922-V6-605A
Replacement USB HUB: Mazda Part TK78-66-9U0C
Looks like the Amazon kit has both (https://amzn.to/2Gb9tAJ
) but I wasn't 100% clear if it also includes the foam and cable ties too; sounded from the blog post like it does, but the description doesn't show them.
I assume if I do all of the flash updates before I install the new hardware everything will still work okay, right, I just won't get the Carplay capability until the new hardware is in? (Thinking of doing the flash updates while waiting on the hardware to arrive and for me to find time to do the install...)
Also, my 124 is an auto, but it sounds like the concerns with removing the shifter might be Miata-specific?
When 70.00.120 comes out, I should just be able to flash that over the existing install, right? So no need to wait for it?
Thanks in advance for the guidance!
