This is not the first time Hyundai has made a software upgrade available using the MyHyundai portal. In 2015, Hyundai became the first automaker in the world to offer Android Auto and in May 2016, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integrations were offered as an upgrade for eight existing models via MyHyundai.com. Hyundai continues to offer a customer-focused user experience by leveraging the MyHyundai.com platform. MyHyundai.com gives customers the option to update their cars for free and on their own schedules.
To complete the software upgrade, owners need their VIN number and the SD card from their Navigation system. MyHyundai.com has installation guides to walk customers through the process. Consumers can access to do-it-yourself installation videos. The videos can be found on MyHyundai.com and the Hyundai USA YouTube channel and include detailed download and installation instructions on the software. How-to-use Apple CarPlay and Android Auto videos also are available on MyHyundai.com and the Hyundai USA YouTube channel.
