I've just got a new Hyundai i40 wagon (my company car) Big mistake but that's a whole other topic. Anyway the Bluetooth is rubbish, I can hear everyone perfectly but no one can hear me. Have had it back to dealer twice, they just keep saying "We have re-paired your phone and it's working perfectly. If only pairing was the problem ?? No one can hear me this is the problem I either sound like an echo underwater or a high pitched static sound both of which is unsatisfactory.
It's definately Hyundai's crap technology. The thing is this was one of the reasons we decided on this car. Absolute rubbish

I thought that I was the only one experiencing sound quality issues. What I am experiencing currently is that the sound volume is so low that when I am traveling at the higher speeds, I cannot hear the other party. This car model apparently does not have the intelligence to increase in volume with the speed to compensate for the increased road noise. Having said that, this was not a problem when I purchased the vehicle. It is only within the last 6 months that the sound quality issues have been occurring. I have been to the dealership and complained at least a half dozen times. They suggest contacting the phone company which I think is ridiculous as I have no problem with the hearing the other party until I connect via the Tucson bluetooth. I have tried deleting and re-pairing, increasing the volume via the setup and cranking up the volume via the radio knob. I have asked them to reset it back to factory settings and they said that they can't do that. Needless to say, I am very frustrated. I used to think that this was one of the best features of the car. Not any more.

When phone connects the menu screen pops up saying phone is in "private mode" even though there is a button that says "handsfree" it won't connect when I push it. I have disconnected and deleted, starting over. But still have the problem. It has worked perfectly for the last several months. Phone I'm connecting to is an iPhone. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Deb

#126 of 191 deleting contacts
Apr 08, 2012 (8:15 pm)
I have a 2012 Sonata and a ZTE phone. Have successfully connected Bluetooth (car to phone) -- and have downloaded contacts from phone to car. But I want to delete many of the contacts that are now on the car. The Sonata manual says that the contacts are deleted when I delete a phone (from the car). So, I deleted the phone (on the car), reduced the number of my phone contacts, and re-established the connection between the car and the phone. Then I transferred the smaller contact list from the phone to the car. But the old contacts are still on the car.
How can I manually remove particular contacts from the car? Or how can I "really remove" all of my contacts from the car (so I can start over)?

Do you have your AM radio on? I have a 2011, and I thought I had an issue with noise from my power steering when near full L or R. It turns out that under that condition, I get a high pitched whine from my radio (AM 780 in this case) Turn off the radio, problem solved.
Bottom line, the EPS can slightly interfere with the AM radio at extreme L or R position. Not really a big deal...
Check to see if your issue is caused by the same AM radio interference.

I have a 2012 Sonata Limited 2.0T and just had the software upgraded by the dealer and am STILL having the same call quality issues. I hear people just fine on my end but everyone says that I sound muffled, tinny and garbled. The dealer checked it out when they did the software upgraed but still the same issue. I have 5K miles on the car and drive a ton and need to use my phone while I drive. I have reverted back to using my corded headset but then I have to pair the phone again to stream my music, BIG pain in the butt! ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sort of and it was purely accidental. I found a tear in the seat cover of the driver's seat. I took it in to have it replaced and they had to take the whole seat out to replace it. When they did, they must have disconnected all the wiring that was attached to the seat and in doing so, they disabled all of the electrical system. When I got the car back, I had to reset the radio presets and the time. The announcement upon transfer of my contacts used to scream at me, "TRANSFER COMPLETE!". It actually hurt my ears and was irritating to say the least. Well, after the seat cover repair, the announcement is back to normal and I can now hear the people that I am talking to. I am not sure that they hear my all that well but at least now I can hear without having to jack up the volume. I had asked if they could do a reset to factory settings & they told me that was not possible so maybe a disconnect of your battery terminal cable might do the trick. It's worth a try. I have other issues but that is another post and I am looking in to the Lemon Law.
