#36 of 66 Radio
May 23, 2006 (6:27 pm)
I find the radio in the Tucson quite fine for the price range of the vehicle. I don't know about the States but in Canada the first batch of Tucson had a different radio than the others. On the first batch the radio head was only a couple inches high and you had some storage for CD's below it. The second batch is maybe 4-5" high and "fills" the dash. Mine is from the second generation. As somebody else mentioned previously, it is light years ahead the on I had in my 2001 Santa Fe.
My only problem is that I now have a CD stuck in there. When you press eject, you hear some motions in there but the cd do not come out....
Time to go to the dealer....
#37 of 66 Using the random play on the 6 CD changer

I have a Tuscon Limited with the 6 CD Changer. Really love the car. Does the random play feature work one CD at a time or will it pick songs from all the CDs that are loaded into the unit? Would appreciate any info. Thanks in advance for your help.

I have just bought a 2006 tucson gls v6 and so far love it, i will be replacing the factory radio with my clarion radio due to i have sirius satellite radio, and has music catcher with prerecorded songs, and is far away much better than stock radios, it puts out twice the power that stocks do sound quality is much better too, well i will post a message when it gets done.

I had a 2004 Tiburon GT which had Infinity speakers in it and was awsome. But my 2005 Tucson LX has crap speakers in it which I went out and got Infinity's put in, after 2 weeks.

Do you think replacing JUST the speakers alone would make a dramatic difference? Electronics store websites I've checked say they don't carry a stereo that "fits" the Tucson. Anyone out there replace their factory GLS stereo with a different one?? If so, what model?
#41 of 66 Reception issues
Sep 17, 2006 (6:03 pm)
I just bought my '06 Tucson a few weeks ago. It's been great so far. My only complaint is the stereo, which goes to a deep, bone-shaking hum/static when I pass under a bridge, under a gas station canopy, or at a car wash.
I've never run into this problem before, so I'm not sure if this is "normal" for the Tucson or not. At first I thought it might be because the external antenna was missing (was taken while it was on the lot). However, they've since replaced that and the problem persists.
Does anyone have any ideas?
#42 of 66 Reception help needed

The only thing I HATE about my '06 Tuscon is the radio reception. It stinks BIG time... and living in a rural area, it makes me crazy.
Are there any viable options for improving this ?

Jul 18, 2007 (9:36 am)
Can anyone suggest an aftermarket "direct wire" (as opposed to cigarette lighter adapter) for an auxilliary audio input for an Ipod?
#44 of 66 Possible Source for iPods, etc
Jul 19, 2007 (1:31 pm)
So... another site had a link to this website about a direct wire interface for Hyundai radios to play iPods (or other mp3s...)
Anyone else have any other ideas or have you used this company?
#45 of 66 iPod Through Cassette
Jul 19, 2007 (1:35 pm)
Ok... I thought that Cassette players in cars had gone the way of 8-track players... Ok.
Anyway. Once things get sorted out will be getting an SE, 4WD. It has the cassette player. Anyone using the old fashioned cassette player adaptor for iPods? Are you satisfied w/sound? Does the Hyundai's stereo accept it easily?
