I have an 2017/18 Mazda CX5. It has a card slot for an SD card for in dash navigation. Can I buy and download a map, load it onto the SD card and place the SD card in my car(plug and play) or will there be other issues.

    I have never come across an in-dash system which can be fixed so easily! You usually need proprietary firmware and proprietary maps.

    I suggest you go to a Mazda dealership and ask them - maybe wait until you have a rather large bank balance!! If a dealership offers you a solution, do it on their premises and make sure it works before you pay them.
