#169 of 178 Nav System Issues & 2010/2011 Map Update
Oct 08, 2010 (4:10 am)
Well, it seems that my new Nav System is has more issues than my recalled system. At least 3 times the first week and now at least 4 times this past week, when I start my car, nothing comes on the Nav System. Everything still works if I touch the screen in the right places; I just can't see anything. Not even the Hyundai Logo appears when turning on the car. I took it back to the dealer and they are going to replace it again.
The new map/software upate seems to be doing well. The software version is now displayed as v017. I noticed that my iPod shuts off when the car is turned off, so they definitely updated the software. They have not corrected the issue with the Random feature in that if you select a different input or use the tuner dial to change a song, the Random option turns off. The option should remain set at all times, even after the car is turned off and on (store it in the system registry just like the preset radio stations).
While one place I go still is not correct on the map even though the streets changed there about 3 years ago, other new streets where I frequent are correct now. The map also seems to route a little better now too. One route I would take would actually have a shortcut between two roads. In the past, it would never route me on that road. It now will do so.
I'll update with more info if I see anything else.

really stinks you went through all those problems with the navi. Also kinda stinks the new v3 update doesn't appear to have a huge amount of fixes/changes. The ipod turning off would be a very welcome fix though. Slightly annoying to hear the first song on the ipod every morning because the battery died and upon bootup, it plays the first song on the list.
I was hoping that since they made a big deal out of it being "version 3" that it would have other changes. Not even Apple expects people to pay a premium for a new ipod without giving some indication of what you get for your money.

Well, the shut-off of the iPod is not as perfect as I thought. Sometimes it seems to shut off and sometimes it doesn't. Unfortunately, since my old battery was basically not holding a charge, I replaced it with one from ebay. So now the new one is not staying charged very long, but I don't know if it's the iPod itself or the new battery.
On a positive note, Hyundai Consumer Affairs has approved my request for reimbursement of the nav update software.

good luck getting the check. I've dealt with Hyundai directly before and it was a mostly positive experience. They have a call center out in western USA and everyone was very friendly. Just took lots of follow-up calls.
Guess i was hoping for some other changes. Just saw they came out with a new TSB for the navi... probably similar TSA that was used to replace yours. Campaign TA6 for the 2009 NF. TSB doesn't mention why it's being replaced, only that the TSB calls for them to replace the whole navi unit.
On a side note, i have several ipod nanos that i swap out in the car and using the same official hyundai cable, i've noticed the older ipod would regularly stay on when i turn off the car, while the newer nano's seem to turn off as they are supposed to.

Well, within just about 2 weeks of getting it approved, I got the reimbursement check.
As for the iPod issue, I have noticed that my wife's iPod, which is a 5th generation (?), the one after the iPod Video, does turn off.
#175 of 178 IPOD WITH NAV?
Jan 02, 2011 (11:04 am)
2011 LIMITED T WITH NAV. CAN A IPOD BE USED WITH THE NAV, AND IF SO, IS THERE A SPECIAL CORD NEEDED??
THANKS FOR ANY INFO.

You just need a mini stereo cable to plug it in to the Aux port and change songs with the device. You need the iPod cable to see the song information on the screen and change songs with the car stereo controls.

Spend the $30 for the Hyundai iPod cable. You won't be disappointed.

I second Merg's advice. With the cable I can go through the iPod menus on the nav screen, see what is playing, play playlists, and, of course, control next previous and volume from the steering wheel controls.
