Hyundai is Offering Existing Owners the Best Smartphone Integrations for Free Through a Software Update.

Make your 2015 Hyundai Sonata a state of the art smartphone media center with CarPlay and Android Auto. Hyundai announced today the availability of a software update for do-it-yourself installation. If you do not want to do it yourself, the software will also be available at Hyundai dealerships nationwide for an installation fee, starting in June. 

"Launching smartphone integrations on these existing models through MyHyundai will enhance the overall ownership experience," said Barry Ratzlaff, executive director, digital business planning and connected operations, Hyundai Motor America. "Existing owners can now get the most out of their smartphones, by simply loading new software into their cars' infotainment systems. Just a few years ago, they would have had to buy a new car to get such a powerful upgrade."

To complete the software upgrade, owners need their VIN number and a USB memory stick or the SD card from their Navigation system. The download will take quite some time depending on the internet connection. Hyundai says you need to expect 1 to 3 hours download. The upload into your Hyundai system takes 40 minutes.
