Learn how to update your Hyundai Navigation System

All Hyundai vehicles with a navigation system have a database that should be updated to better help you locate recently added or changed points of interest. For models prior to 2018, updates are available each year in the Spring.

The methods of updating your map data vary depending on the year and model of your Hyundai. The following chart shows which system your model uses.

Navigation Data Storage / Transfer Systems

There is a charge for the update which varies depending on which of the three update options you choose. The options are as follows:

  • Have the dealer do the update during a regularly scheduled maintenance appointment. This choice is available for all models, and required for all vehicles that use DVD data storage.
  • Order an updated SD card. (available for vehicles with SD storage only)
  • Download & Install. (available or vehicles that use either a USB drive or an SD card)

 

OPTION 1: During regularly scheduled maintenance

At your next Hyundai vehicle maintenance visit, request your Service Advisor to update your vehicle with the latest map update. Though there will be a dealer fee for the service, this is certainly the most convenient of the three options, as it saves you the time of downloading, setting up a new account, and transferring to USB or SD storage devices.

To ensure that the dealer will be ready with an update for your vehicle please inform them of your plan to update the map data when you schedule your appointment.

 

OPTION 2: Purchase SD card with map update

If the above table shows that your model stores its navigation information in an SD card, you can simply have a replacement SD card sent to you, to replace your existing SD card.
