This is interesting . . . I don't see any V8 VIN numbers in the ranges given, since these are all V6s (46E, not 46F) . Curious.

Ric,
Thanks for posting this up... Wow you have to press 4 buttons simultaneously to enter the update menu! I wonder what differences if any you will notice after over one hour of loading software upgrades?

I wish there were release notes to tell us what the latest updates actually do/fix.

Wink Re: Navigation system software update

I agree - would be good to see the specifics.

I had to chuckle to myself when this was released on "patch Tuesday".

Angry Re: Navigation system software update

dealer just performed this update for my car today, all of my presets in XM and my entire address book for my phone was lost, also all of my addresses in my Navigation system were lost. It basically reset to factory defaults when finished. I don't see any difference yet or upgrade, and dealer was not able to tell me what the upgrade is supposed to change or add. I must say, I am a little frustrated.

I just wanted to give you all a heads up.

I guess this is not at all unexpected, as all "factory resets" go back to square one, including PC's. That said, it's a shame there is no way to save the data externally . .

Call HMA and find out... also they should be giving the dealer a heads up if it erases stored data and such.

you would think it wouldn't be that hard to set it up do back up to a USB memory stick or even the 40GB hard drive....

Default Re: Navigation system software update

I'm scheduled to get this update on Saturday. Has anyone had it done? What functionality did it improve? And the $64K question...did it really trash all stored data?

I don't use the nav system much and can live with having a few addresses deleted, but I've got dozens of phonebook entries that I'd be cranky about losing. If that's really gonna happen, I need to know what the offsetting benefits of the upgrade involve.

I had it done. I did not notice any changes, but I had it done less than 24 hours after I picked up the car, so I probably would not notice any differences.

Yes, it wipes out all phone numbers in your address book and all addresses in the nav. Fortunately I had very few entered.

Arghh! Damned inconvenient! Which leaves me with the other original question (what does this upgrade buy me?) plus a new one (is there any way to dump a phonebook onto a portable device for reloading later?).

This shortcoming definitely belongs on the list of things for Hyundai to fix for upcoming models. Periodic software updates are likely, but a manual reload of the phonebook (or nav addresses, for those that load a lot of those) every time HMA releases an update is UNACCEPTABLE!

We do have dealers here, and I recall someone's brother in law is a dealer as well. The update CDs should contain a file that says either README or Release Notes. That is where you should find the detail on what applying the CD will actually change. Unlikely the service manager is going to offer this info up to a regular customer, if, as we suspect, this update will fix stuff like the NAVI address book erasing itself (they have never admitted this is an issue). If they fix stuff they never admitted was broken, it was never broken.

On the phonebook, as a workaround I would suggest you snap a digital pic of each page. You can then print them out and have a guide to quickly re-install as they were before. Still a pain in the butt though.

I'm the guy whose brother-in-law runs a dealership (not to mention various nephews and nephews-in-law in sales). Believe me, I'll be exercising that connection in order to find out what's being fixed, and ultimately, to determine if I'm even going to have this S/W upgrade done. Stay tuned...
