Flash-drives can work well. I have several, including a 16GB. The problem is there is a delay to load the music. With the 16GB drive it takes about 15 seconds before it starts to play.
Also, with a flash-drive there are only playlists (folders) available. With an iPod you can also choose among artists, albums, genre, etc., and the start up is almost instantaneous as the audio system communicates with the iPod.
An iPod is something to strive for if you're into having the ultimate in selection options.

I've never had it read more than 5 seconds, but then again, I only have about 3 GB worth of music on my SanDisk USB.

I can't figure out how to tune in the extra HD broadcasts on my 2011 Sonata. Is it possible to tune in 102.9-1 and 102.9-2? There's quite a bit of extra programming out there I'm missing. Thanks for any help.

You don't mention your model, but I don't believe you get HD FM on the GLS, only an XM trial. The Limited may have. Check with dealer.

Sorry, it's a 2011 Limited. Dealers aren't that helpful with some things and the manual for this car leaves a lot to be desired.

The early model Sonata Limiteds did not have HD Radio. I'm not sure if it ever got added back in or not.

#366 of 419 2009 mp3 player song formats
Dec 30, 2010 (10:38 am)
I have a 2009 Sonata and just got a Sony mp3 player for xmas. My question is about the formatting of songs from iTunes. After investigating, am I correct in saying that my Hyundai radio will not recognize the default iTunes file format? Does that mean that I just have to set iTunes to convert everything to mp3 before I put it on my Sony player? I really like the software with the player to import from iTunes otherwise I would just take the long route and download music to Windows Media and then to my player. Any insight? Thanks.

I've tried to use my ipod touch on the 2011 sonota with navigation system and have had no success. Can I use the usb cable that I use to interface to computer? Get message that no device is detected. Did play as a mp3 but the playlist is not available on the screen.

Do you have the "special" $35 cable from Hyundai. Regular USB cable won't work with an iPod Touch.
You can use a male-to-male 3.5mm audio cable between the iPod Touch and the port near the USB port. Control would be by the Touch and not the audio system, except volume. A cheap, but inefficient system.
Get the $35 MP3 cable from Hyundai and all will work as it should. It has BOTH USB and earphone cables integrated.
