#160 of 178 HYUNDAI SONATA NAV PACK ....CRAP
Sep 05, 2010 (8:23 am)
I love my 2011 sonata limited but was supposed to be all black when it arrived but instead it was black outside and grey inside ( dealer said that was hyundai's black ) crap.. in the brochoure it shows all black interior ( hyundai brochoure are crap, full of picks they can't deliver ). I purchased the $2000.00 Nav system as well....it's crap my $200.00 GARMIN NUVII 360 blows it out of the water. It only covers commercial addresses ie: if you want a harveys or big mac it can direct you there no problem but if want want something really exotic like your or some one you know.... HOME ADDRESS forget it and if you wish to STAY OFF THE 407 series highways which it LOVES to direct you onto...forget it your screwed you may as well just turn it off and go back to your NUVII 360. The blue tooth seems to work in some area's ok.
Am I sorry I purchased this car NOT ON YOUR LIFE.
BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK OUT THERE.

They JUST posted a brand new version for our navi dated 9/13/2010. Cost is still $200. I sent them a message to see if they know of any differences from prior versions. They make a big deal saying the version number is now 3.x. We go through this every update and they never seem to know what was changed other than "new poi and addresses." I'll report if they say anything worthwhile.
As for the version from earlier this year, i never bought it as i didn't think it was worth $200 for only a year's worth of updates.

I'm actually getting this V3 one. Due to a recall on my system, I need to have it replaced, but needed a new Map Update disc since my one from 2009 could not be used on the new system. I ordered the 2010 update back on 08/31 and after a week of it not shipping out I called. I was told the 2010 update was backordered, but they would be getting in the 2011 version and would send me that instead. It shipped yesterday and is due for delivery on Friday. It will be installed with my new Nav System on Monday.
I'll update with more info after my update on Monday. Fortunately, it seems like Hyundai is actually going to reimburse me the $199 since a recall is causing me to purchase a new update.

do you know the TSB # for the recall? I'd be curious to see if my navi was included. Last time i got service at the dealer, i asked them to review all TSB's for my car and they only found the firmware update for the transmission.
Congrats on getting the new version and also getting it free. I look forward to your post of any changes and bug fixes.

The code on the invoice from the dealership says:
"TA6 09 NF NAVIGATION REPLACE 10-01-011"
I also had the transmission system update as well when I went in this past time, too.
From what it seems like, I should have had the Nav System replaced back in May, but the tech refused to do it then because I had updated the map.
And, hopefully, Hyundai will reimburse me. I need to send in the invoice once the Navigation System is replaced along with receipts from my two map update purchases. After that they will make a decision.

My service advisor stated that it was because of lockups and the system freezing on the Hyundai logo screen. I haven't had that issue except for maybe once not long after I got the car and restarting the car took care of it.
#168 of 178 Nav defect 2011 Sonata purchased Aug 30, 2011
Sep 15, 2010 (7:37 pm)
The Nav system on my newly purchased, brand new, otherwise perfectly running 2011 Sonata (Aug 30, 2010) does not recognize my home address (in an older neighborhood in northern New Jersey), which is an odd number, but does recognize my neighbor across the street who has an even house number. It also doesn't recognize the address of my relative a who lives 3 blocks away and also has an odd address, but similarly recognizes the neighbor across the street who has an even house number. The service dept at the dealership first tried updating the unit with the newest CD update; that didn't work. On the latest visit they tried replacing the Nav with another new unit, but the problem persists--appears there is a ?software bug in the new Navs. An older unit had no problem recognizing my address. A case # has been opened with Hyundai. Anybody else experiencing something similar? Are there any other associated problems I haven't yet discovered?
#169 of 178 Nav System Issues & 2010/2011 Map Update
Oct 08, 2010 (3:10 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.
