When it comes to in-vehicle technology, Hyundai has often been on the leading edge of development. The brand’s most recent move will only serve to strengthen its reputation.
Technology is becoming more and more advanced every day. Upgrades are a simple fact of life now. With many vehicles out there, it seems you have to drive yours to the dealership to let a technician install new software. In other words, upgrades are relegated to the realm of the “experts.”
Hyundai is putting the power of the upgrade into your hands, however, if you own a 2015 Hyundai Sonata with navigation. The automaker just released DIY Android Auto installation instructions to the masses.
Users need to go their MyHyundai portal and register if they haven’t already done so. Navigating the portal and downloading the software onto a USB drive is extremely easy. The user then moves the software from the USB stick to their Sonata via the USB port. Find instructions for DIY Android Auto installation here.
As far as production vehicles are concerned, Hyundai is first automaker to feature Android Auto. Michael Deitz, Senior Group Manager of Connected Care of Hyundai Motor America, said in a press release, “Hyundai is continuing to offer the best user experience possible by leveraging its MyHyundai platform, so customers have the option to update their car–their way.”
