#13 of 21 sfgijoe08 ipod questions
Jul 13, 2010 (7:00 am)
A little more info please I was told NO dealer aftermarket for my 08 Santa Fe.
Crutchfield part # if known
Is there an install manual available before I jump into this project? unless you have a .pdf available.....
But, I was told aftermarket install voids the warranty. True? But the dealer will recommend someone (my kid had a local install a sweet Gps/etal on his Charger which Dodge honors). I don't know what to believe.
I have some tech ability (mostly Ford and GM for decades) what are we changing: wiring harnesses?
A little more grit in the 'severe service' maintenance schedule. I have 60k on my '08. Some think that's severe but in Chicago, we all must comute 30-40mis each way to work. 80 mi per day plus errands and weekends - I don't think 600mi/week is unreasonable. I was told I am on the 'Severe" schedule (ok with those miles + hot/cold sh** weather)
And I never had a prob with the S F (no jinx) NONE. But on all the Chevys and Fords, I never changed trans fluid til 75k mis. Only blew up 2 trans out of 18 vehicles - all with over 100k on them.
30k fluid change on the Santa Fe. With syn fluid? Are they that weak? Does anyone know how much they charge to change? I think my dealer wants about $400 for the 60k check up. WOW!

Does anyone know of any device I could use (other than the fm transmitter), where I could install n aux port? I can't beleive that this is so difficult...

As I've said before, my preferred method is something like the Scosche FM-MOD01, which does work like the FM transmitter units, but has the advantage of injecting the signal between the antenna and the radio, rather than depending on radiating the signal. The advantage is that the signal goes directly into the radio, rather than depending on the signal reaching the rear mounted antenna. Because the Santa Fe's antenna is on the rear of the vehicle, depending on a modulator isn't a good idea. Direct injection works much better.
Of course, a dedicated "aux" input would be better, but that's another story.
#16 of 21 Go get a Sony MEX-BT3800

Go get a Sony MEX-BT3800, cost you about $250 installed. I have one, and it is a great cel phone interface over Bluetooth (with an external Mic), AND allows streaming Bluetooth from my iPod or Blackberry, AND iPod wired interface that charges, and allows browsing from either Sony or iPod. Oh, and this unit sounds great as well. If I end up getting a Santa Fe, the Sony is going in.
#17 of 21 Listening to Podcasts in Santa Fe
Mar 28, 2011 (8:35 pm)
Just picked up a 2011 Santa Fe and very happy with it so far. Our model has the USB/Ipod port and our Ipod works great. The display shows the title, playlists, artist, etc. But one thing it does NOT show is podcasts. It seems like an odd oversight. Anyone else notice this? How do you get it to select podcasts? yes, I read the manual. It didn't really say anything specific other than not mentioning podcasts at all.

I see the same thing. I've overcome this by creating a Playlist is iTunes, and calling it Mobile Podcast. I put all my podcasts into it, and now I'm set.
Podcasts are a great thing.

Yep, I ended up doing the same thing. No big deal.
At least Hyundai (and certainly Ford) get this. When we were cross-shopping the Santa Fe against a Toyota RAV4, we were surprised to find a USB connection for an iPod wasn't even available. Same with Mazda--they're still trying to push a 6-CD changer! At least they offer an Ipod adapter cable, but it's pricey and doesn't display the text in playlists, song titles, etc. So you really have no way of knowing what playlist to select if you have hundreds of songs.

The Forum comments refer to iPods in general terms. Will the dealer's connection kit work in my 2010 Santa Fe with a first generation iPod Touch? More specifically, will it show playlist, artist and track information on the vehicle's display? And can I select playlist/music on my iPod using the vehicle's controls without having to pick up the device itself?

Hoping you can help me. I have a 09 Veracruz and my ipod classic works great for the music. Shows playlists, genre, albums, etc. on the in dash radio. However I tried your suggestions regarding setting up a playlist and copying my podcasts into the playlist via itunes and then syncing to your ipod and I can't get the playlist to show up on my ipod classic. I know I should probably be in an apple forum!! but thought you might be able to help. Any suggestions appreciated.
