Dealer names are fine - we've had problems with fake referrals for individual salespeople (bird-dogging for referral fees) so please don't mention your salesperson's name. People can contact you at your CarSpace email for that info.
Congrats on the new Veracruz, and please rate your dealer:

Thanks for the update on mentioning the dealer's name.
I bought my 2008 Veracruz Limited at Palmer's Airport Hyundai in Mobile, AL. I had a very good experience except that the tires were still at 40 psi when it rolled off the lot.
I learned through the Hyundai forum to check the tire pressure and adjust it to 30 psi. I e-mailed the dealer to let him know about adjusting the tire pressure for customers like me who are learning as we go.
I'm really enjoying my Veracruz, although I've had it only two days. As with all new vehicles, there are adjustments, and I expect a few rattles from time to time.
I'll continue reading these forums to keep myself informed about what to do about any glitches . . . the headlights for example.
I haven't driven the Veracruz at night, so I haven't noticed any problems with the way the headlights are aimed. However, I'll check this out tonight to see if there's anything noticeable that I need to bring to the attention of the service dept.

I ordered my 2008 Veracruz Limited yesterday. The options I chose was the Navigation and I also wanted the Rear DVD Entertainment system factory installed. After searching for the car they came back to me and said I cannot have both. It is either one option or the other. Why? Does anyone know?
Now what we did was pick the Navigation option to be factory installed.
But the dealer after speaking for 15 minutes with his manager said their technicians, at the dealer here where I am getting the vehicle, said they could install the DVD entertainment system. But I was wary to make sure if everything is going to be the same. So I asked him will everything be the exact same. He again talked to his manager and said no. He told me, where you load the DVD, usually in the 2nd row center console, will not be there anymore. It will be replaced with the auxilary audio jack I opted to get also. Loading DVDs will be done on the actual unit where the fold out screen is, located up above. Also the fancy controls for the DVD, those knobs and button that is located in the 2nd row center console will not be there anymore. He said they will come with two wireless headsets and remote still.
My main question though is why can't I have both options factory installed?
Thanks in advance.
Please reply as soon as you can. I am going to go and check out the vehicle in a couple days or so before they start to install the DVD entertainment system. I want to know if I should just do away with the DVD entertainment system before it is too late.

For 2008 Santa Fe, to allow passengers to watch DVD while driving (not advised for driver), need to disconnect the vss signal to the radio. First, remove top speaker cover on dash (pops off, no screws); remove bottom right screw on bottom panel under steering wheel and pull panel away (2 tabs) by ignition key. Next, remove the brown wood trim over the glove box … held in by all tabs. Now you see the radio easy. Remove 2 screws by top speaker , unhook speaker wire and set aside. Remove 4 8mm bolts holding in the radio. Pull out radio. Remove the top wire harness (24 wire clip)…cut the brown wire with silver dots (in 8th position) and the orange/blue wire with silver dots (on end of tab). Test drive. Reassemble and your good to go. Remember, this may not be legal in every state so you’re doing it at your own risk…I assume NO liability for anything.
#35 of 39 Map Updates
Feb 01, 2009 (3:47 pm)
Map Updates are now available at www.mapnsoft.com/. M&Soft is the authorized reseller for the updates. They give you everything you need for the map updates. You can't lose the screwdriver since thats the only one they'll give you. It's not a regular screwdriver. It's a hex bit screwdriver. Maps are $199 and there are 2 options. One is the non CF card option where you send in your CF card to mapnsoft.com. They'll then update the CF card with the latest maps. It takes about 15 days to do this option.
The other option is the CF card option. That takes much less time but there is a $100 refundable deposit making it $299. That gives you a preloaded CF card with the latest map. All you have to do is send in the old CF card to M&Soft and you'll get a $100 check from them making it $199.
#36 of 39 Aftermarket kit for in dash GPS?
Jun 29, 2009 (9:04 am)
Anybody knows where to get a double din dash kit for installing an aftermarket in dash GPS? The factory in-dash GPS is lacking compared to units offered by Pioneer, Kenwood and Eclipse, ie: no IPOD control, built-in bluetooth and back-up camera connection.

I am also looking for a Navigation system for my Veracruz. As I am writing from Brazil I have spent hours and hours on the internet searching for the best system and dash kit. I have found two suppliers for the 2 Din dash kit for installing an aftermarket GPS on Veracruz.
www.scosche.com and www.metraonline.com .
Please, as you are in USA check these suppliers and let me know what you think. Also, please let me know which navigation system have you bought to your Veracruz. Hope to hear from you soon! Thank you!
