I've got a JDM Mazda6, has a few of the Tech pack features (Keyless Entry, AFS) - Techpack didn't exist on that model!

 

 

 

Can't say i really use the AFS much, It's more of a set and forget thing.

 

Keyless though is a two edged sword, It's amazing when it works, a pain in the ass if it doesn't. Few proof of concepts out there on how this could be exploited etc..

Today's conversions: Mazda CX-5 2013 Diesel JDM Import. Owners is high-tech software developer. They were using Google Translate before but because of few recent warning notifications decided to have it in English.

 

Before:

 

 

After conversion. They have weak main battery (not caused any DTC though) which is now communicated in English:

 

 

In previous 2014 CX-5 conversion there was warning about low battery in FOB with corresponding DTC captured by the scanner, owner did not pay much attention to it when it was in Japanese.
