You are in the Hyundai Azera
What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Azera, Sedan
Aug 15, 2009 (7:57 pm)
I just purchased a 2008 Azera today. It is a fine car. I activated the XM radio and can get XM stations. I think I followed the correct proceedure to preset some XM channels. My question is: How do I access my preset channels randomly? What button(s) do I use to get to the presets? The Azera Handbook doesn't seem to be of much help on this subject.

Good question. Don't know. I just continue to turn the knob for channels. Didn't even think that a preset was possible. Will be watching for the answer. Love the XM. Have lifetime subscription, however it is probably a bad deal in that when you trade cars the subscription does not transfer to a new car. Not good. However the little XM I have for household use is good for life. There are two different subcriptions. Will be looking for the answer.

I know that the 2009 Santa Fe can save XM stations..... It's saved just by holding the station selection button down for a few seconds--when you hear a tone the station is saved

The procedure you described for saving channels in the 2009 Santa Fe sounds like what I did in my 2008 Azera. It is an Infinity sound system. However, unlike my other satellite radios that have individual channel playback buttons, the Azera just has the regular Infinity controls. I was guessing that some combination of the existing controls allows one to playback the preset channels. Does the Santa Fe have individual channel playback buttons i.e. buttons 0-9 etc. or does it use some existing buttons?
#583 of 628 Having Ipod/AUX jack vs in-panel GPS -- my take on it
Aug 23, 2009 (3:07 pm)
I've been monitoring the CD & XM threads & have been impressed with the helpfulness of the group as everyone tried to help toward a resolution. Even though I use XM (2009 Limited with Infinity system), I've never used the CD player. That's because I've found the Ipod jack to be the best auxiliary for hooking up my Iphone & more often my Garmin GPS both of which have audiobooks & music loaded on them. I'm also using XM less for music due to these 2 devices.
I use the Garmin more for audiobooks & also for directions. When the audiobook is playing, the GPS will interrupt when necessary, then the audiobook resumes with a playback of a few seconds. (I think the latest software for the Iphone has 30-second playback but I haven't tried it yet.) This is so helpful for me on long drives that it has obviated listening to music & has kept up my attention better. The portability of the GPS is important as I can always resume where I left off whenever I switch cars.
When I bought the Azera in Feb I was specifically looking for the aux jack since I found it so handy in an after-market stereo that I had installed on an older car.
If you're in the process of buying a car, take some time to think about how you're going to use your devices. BTW, I don't put the GPS where I can see it. I just listen for the spoken directions & have been doing it this way for almost a year now. It's just a habit that I formed but I think I'm able to watch the road better by not watching the GPS.

Thank god Hyundai put in iPod integration. I'm shocked at what I can do with the 3GS iPhone (voice control) and nav apps, etc. fully through the stereo, etc. :o

I used to tell my boys that if they fooled around with something long enough one of two things would happen: either they would figure it out or they would break it! Happily for me I figured out the way to set-up the preset XM channels on my 2008 Azera Infinity system. Here is how to do it if anyone wants to set theirs: (1) Use the Mode switch on the steering wheel to cycle through the options XM1, XM2, XM3, FM1, FM2, and AM. Choose XM1 to begin. (2) Use the right hand knob on the Infinity radio to select the channel you want to have on Preset 1 shown as P1. My wife likes the oldies so I chose "40's on 4." When "40's on 4 was playing I pressed the selection knob to hold the "40's on 4" then pressed and held the #1 on the second rocker switch from the left. This locked in "40's on 4" on preset 1 (P1). (3) Once again I used the right hand knob to select "50s on 5" and this time pressed and held #2 on the middle rocker switch. (4) I continued using this method until I had preset six XM channels on XM1. (5) I then used the Mode switch to go to XM2 and set six more XM channels. (6) Then Mode switch to go to XM3 and 6 more channels. (7) The same process can be used to set FM and AM frequencies.

I forgot to tell how to cycle through the preset channel once set. Just use the "arrow buttons" on the steering wheel to cycle through any six presets. Use the Mode button to go to the next level i.e. XM 2 etc.

We have the same thing going on, check engine lights, esc light, barely goes with full petal, stop a while, shit off, then its OK for a few days then again it does it. How much did it cost to repair?

I have not had this problem with my Azera, but I am a computer guy and this sounds like a problem that is electrical/computer related. Like most modern cars there are many electrical/computer circuits in the Azera. The fact that when you shut-off the ignition switch and then restart the car runs ok, leads me to believe that the electrical shut-down causes the computers to "reboot" and then they work OK until the "electrical/computer bug" shows up again and the cycle starts all over. I don't think this is a problem you can fix yourself. I would think this would be a warranty fix item and that you should see your Hyundai dealer ASAP.
