Learn how to update your Hyundai vehicle with the latest map and software available

There are two types of software updates available depending on whether your vehicle has onboard navigation or Display Audio.

A software update is available for select Hyundai models that have Display Audio (no “Map” button on the dash). Click here to check if there is a software update available for your vehicle. Once on the page, click on each of the two banners titled “List of vehicles eligible” and find your vehicle model name and year. Then, follow the steps outlined to download the software and install in your vehicle.

Hyundai models with onboard navigation are eligible for a map and software update. The update will include latest map, point of interest, and software for your vehicle. For model year 2017 and earlier vehicles, updates are available once a year in the Spring. For model year 2018 and newer vehicles, updates are available twice a year in the Spring and Fall.
