Hyundai Azera Navigation System

shippyshippy Posts: 3
Good day all azerites,
I bought my pearl white azera 2007,3.3 in dubai in april last week and its running like a dream.
The new model here is having a dvd navigation system and i find the maps very accurate and user friendly.Also the dvd picture and sound quality is astounding.
The car is really worth every penny.
However i am worried about updating the maps.
Nothing is mentioned in the manual and the dealer is not having any clue.
Anybody having any idea.

    Is you Azera the model produced for the Korean market? Does it also have Bluetooth, Ipod input, Smart key, etc.?

    This model is for the gulf region.
    It has a dvd navigation system,ipod input,blue tooth phone.
    However the seat belt warning light for the passenger side is omitted(which is very surprising).

    Most of us with the US model would obviously want to know what a tricked out version like yours converts to in US$, if of course you don't mine sharing that.

    Thanks

    So many reasons come to mind for Hyundai omitting the passenger side seat belt warning light on cars sold in the Gulf region. If anyone knows the rational behind Hyundai's decision, please share. Glad you like your Azzie Shippy. It's really a great car!

    The car is costing close to Usd 28k with free registration,free rust proofing.
    On offer is also 5 yrs/100000 warranty and free servicing upto 60000kms.

    I bought a Garmin Nuvi 350. It's not a permanent install but it will run for eight hours on battery power alone and I can switch it between vehicles. I am very impressed with it's accuracy. It doesn't "know" when restarurants close but it can be updated without charge.

    Alpine is working on a USA navigation system for hyundai USA! Maybe the 08 azera will get it. It will be in the top vehicles like sonata, entourage, veracruz, santa fe, azera, BH and the next tiburon.

    RE: 9
    Are you talking about a dash mounted system specifically designed for Hyundai as an OEM product?

    I have a Garmin Street Pilot that I use in my Azera sometimes and in my other vehicle. Works great and a great price. In my opinion a built in navigation system in any vehicle is a complete waste of money.

    Yes I'm talking about an Indash OEM navi. LG is still in the race for a hyundai nav contract. I think LG could do it but Alpine knows how to make great nav systems. From what I know there will be bluetooth. Alpine makes the honda/acura system and they have features that LG might not have like traffic and weather.

    The Korean version of the Azera has had nav since inception in 06
    Hyundai could easily have software adapted to accomodate US model.
    I'm not sure who provides their Korean system.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    They could have easily adapted the Mozen MTS250 for the USA without mozen. The arabs have this kind of system. Well hyundai felt that some of the nav systems they have weren't good enough for the USA. Remember the genesis has tech like traffic updates so there needs to be a system that can adapt to the latest technologies. I believe LG and Hyundai autonet/mobis provides the korean nav system. Mobis USA has an Eclipse System for the US market for now but there will be nav coming soon. Hyundai is working with 2 companies to provide a nav system. Dont worry it's coming soon.
  • rv65rv65 Posts: 1,074
    Well they are choosing between LG or Alpine. I think Alpine will get the contract.

    I bet there will be updates every year or so. There probably is a disc drive somewhere that has the DVD. Updating would be quite simple. Just eject the old one. Pop in the new disc and it will probably update itself. As long as you turn on the key but not the engine. You're good to go from there.

    I just took my Garmin Nuvi 660 on a trip from Cleveland, Ohio to Niagara Falls, Canada and New York in a rental car. It worked great and I couldn't have done that with an in dash mounted GPS.

    I agree totally. We have a Garmin Quest in the Azzie and a Garmin C-330 in our CRV. The fit is good and we can take the units on the bike trails if we want. Also it's a hoot to take the Quest on cross country flights as long as the flight staff don't notice your using it. No, it does not interfere with aircraft navigation systems!
  • Yep, I have a Garmin iQue 3600 - an old but very good GPS/Palm. Any time I use it on a plane - the plane people say no, no it interferes - I explain this device transmits nothing, it is a receiver - but it's like talking to a wall.
    I like built-in GPSs when they are hard installed - so even in the city on a metal bridge, it counts the tire rotations to not get lost - unlike handhelds. But unless they have dead reckoning, I prefer handhelp GPSs.

    How does it count tire rotations?

    Well hyundai is now putting in a LG nav system in the 08 veracruz. Expect this system to trickle into other models.
