Some quick post-install questions ...

0 votes
I have just installed the EVO-ONE-942 with THAR-ONE-MAZ3 on my 2016 Mazda CX5 Automatic Push Start.
Everything seems to work just fine, but I had a couple of questions ...

When I did the programming with Flashlink manger I went throigh the "wizard" step by step, and picked
that my car already has an OEM Alarm system (I verified by rolling window down, locking, then unlocking,
and it sounded the alarm). I chose not to use the OEM remote for starting, just the Fortin RF one ...
I also did not install the Valet switch, or the Hood pin.

Question, since it seems to work I am assuming that I didn't need to enter manual options to fine tune anything?

Also, when I went through the programming, would I automatically get a firmware update or did I have to do
that step manually and I missed it? My unit was made at the end of 2020 so I assume it's fairly up to date?

Thanks in advance!

when you flash the module major settings and firmware updates load automatically into the evo unit.

The wizard indeed flashes the newest firmware for both the bypass and starter, the only thing remaiing was to update the rf kit antenna. Thanks!
