#599 of 628 Dashboard crack
Jul 10, 2011 (7:49 pm)
I bought 2008 Azera Limited this Wednesday with 12,000 miles. And yesterday I noticed crack on dashboard. Should I call dealership or should I call Hyundai first? And I assume replacement will be covered by warranty, won't it?

Repair of crack should be covered under warranty and I would contact dealer directly. Had same problem with my 2007 Azera and was fixed by Delaler without any problems.

Hi, i just bought 2008 hyundai azera that has single disc player and navigation. It is missing AUX port. The car does not have bluetooth connectivity either. Can someone advise me on a product that allows me to listen music and take call on an iphone? thanks

My solution was to burn MP3 CDs, 100 songs per disk, only the songs I like. So much better than one CD you keep popping in about . I change disks once a week at most.

This may seem ironic but a product that I use is a Garmin GPS with bluetooth & capability of storing songs & audiobooks & the ability to add an SD chip for additional storage. To get all of this you have to go to the Garmin 700 or 800 series. I think the 800 series is now discontinued, but I was able to find it new about 6 months ago. For your specific situation, this may be the answer.
Even though I'm very happy with my Garmin, IN GENERAL, I can no longer recommend buying a GPS now that I have tried the Mapquest GPS which is free. I paired my iPhone with a BlueAnt bluetooth device & was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked on directions. It was almost as good as the Garmin in terms of turn anticipation but the Garmin had a more natural voice. I never look at the display when driving but as a passenger, Mapquest beats the Garmin & in-dash systems on 2 counts:
1. the maps are ALWAYS up-to-date & you don't have to pay extra.
2. you have the ability to pinch or expand the map almost instantly. When expanded, you will see features such as store names or points-of-interest that you won't see on the Garmin or in-dash system.

I already have a spare garmin GPS system. it's old and doesn't have any of these options. I was looking at blue fusion products at bestbuy.
I think there are two options:
1. hooking up a cable to the back of the radio unit, the other end of it is a ipod cable. this way one can use navigation screen to browse ipod songs.
2. there is a product that uses bluetooth to stream music and obviously you could take/make calls using the same product. I couldn't find this unit specifically made for Hyundai though.
i will pay a visit to autozone to see if they got any options.

Hello SRK12 I am all about making my ride more pleasant with whatever technology is available. I found a factory installed system that has these capabilities offered in vehicles like camry generally run for 600 dollars, this is outrageous. Your local BestBuy will have a selection that of stereos that have all the features that you could ask for in Aux ports Sattelite radio USB plugs that connect to Ipods including music tagging as well as free HD radio for about half of that 600 dollars. Might I also suggest crutchfield.com there is an assortment of stereos available for around 150+free shipping if you are a do it yourself kind of person. Or if not the best bang for the buck and easiest thing you can do is order from Crutchfield buying a Kenwood, Pioneer, JVC, etc. and for 50 dollars Best Buy will do the installation for you. I hope this information is beneficial for you.

Can the 3.8 V6 in the Azzy be "reflashed" to achieve the performance numbers (hp and torque) for the 3.8 in the Genesis??? Same engine or different upper end and/or lower end internals??

djh123...you're absolutely right! I have a 2006 Limited that now has in-dash DVD, aux input, usb input, SD card, built-in Bluetooth. I went with a Pioneer AVH-P3200BT and I love it. I supports iPhone & all MP3 players and I can even add a back-up camera to it if I so desire. There's also expandability to HD radio and nav (I just use my phone for navigation though). I spent $300 for the unit and did the installation myself. Another advantage to going with an aftermarket unit...better sound quality.
Happy New Year to all!!!

thank you guys...
i just don't think it is a good idea to totally rip out the factory installed navigation system and install an aftermarket unit. i want to just add the ipod functionality and if possible bluetooth connectivity.
