#131 of 140 Re: How are you connecting your MP3/iPod to your SF?
May 04, 2009 (10:12 am)
If I may add my two cents, what's wrong with CDs? I do have an ipod, but I also use the mp3 capability of the indash CD player on my 07 SF. My daughter has an aux input on her car, but she uses the mp3 capablilty of her CD player most of the time, also. If you are someone who carries your ipod with you every where you go, then I can see wanting an aux input, but cheap, reliable CDs offer a lot of advantages:
Safety - you can use the steering wheel controls to change songs, so you are not fumbling around with your ipod while driving.
Security - you don't have to worry about hiding your ipod when you park, and if a 25 cent CD does get lost or stolen, big deal.
Convenience - you don't have to remember to grab your ipod or worry about it being charged. The CD player is always there, and if you burn the CD right, the song titles are listed on the radio display.
Yes, you can't put a gazillion songs on a CD, but there are probably just a select few songs you listen to all the time. I found a CD case the fits in the top center console perfectly. I have CDs for different moods (jazz, rock, showtunes for my wife, etc), and putting in a CD is no more trouble than hooking up an ipod.

PXAMG... just google it. It's a new adapter that turns your XM button into a multi function button. One being and IPod input. Plus they sell a HD radio adapter, but you are starting to run $250 with the HD item. $130 for IPod alone. You can install it if you are good as it's plug and play but have to get behind the radio.
If you don't have an XM radio (don't need a subscription, just the radio with that button) then a FM converter that plugs into the radio's antenna. Most converts need a switch to turn them on/off. I had one added and the switch is in that small tray above the radio.
I started looking into the PXAMG control as the converter is not that loud with a MP3 player. I tried CDs but since I don't have the 6CD player anymore... one CD gets too boring after a few days.
#133 of 140 iPod

I just purchased a 2009 Santa Fe SE with the iPod package included. It didn't come with an iPod cable. Should it have? Also, I own an iPod classic 80gb. Is there any way to get this iPod to work properly or do I need to buy a different iPod, like the Nano?

You have to buy the cable($30) from Hyundai dealership, it fits all the ipods.

My question is, and I suppose I could play around to find out, if the USB port reads regular old thumb drives for stored music. I don't have an IPOD, and I tend to burn MP3s to CDs, but it would be much more convenient to slap in a SanDisk Thumb drive, with 16 GB of tunes. Anyone have an answer for me? Thanks in advance. Otherwise, I will just play and see if it works.
I have a 2009 SF LTD.

I'm interested in buying a 2009 Santa Fe, but heard the after market-installed bluetooth is not the best. Has anyone had any problems on their end or the other end with your bluetooth?
