Hyundai Releases DIY Android Auto Update for 2015 Sonata
If you splurged this year and bought yourself a stunning new Sonata from our Hyundai dealership near Malvern, PA, you made an excellent choice. With its sleek style and sophisticated interior, you’re sure to have everything you need to enjoy your daily drives. Well, maybe there is one thing missing: the latest software update for your infotainment system. Hyundai is now offering a free software update to those who drive a 2015 Hyundai Sonata with Navigation, and the best part is that you can install it all by yourself.
Starting with this Sonata update, Hyundai became the first automaker to include Android Auto on production vehicles this summer. Soon, the automaker will expand this state-of-the-art telematics technology to its other models, too. In the meantime, you can simply download Android Auto yourself, free of charge, from MyHundai.com. Just register for a free MyHyundai account with your name, email, zip code and VIN. Select downloads on your 2015 Hyundai Sonata screen, then navigate to the Android Auto download drop-down menu. Once you download the software to a USB stick, you can plug it right into the built-in USB port in your Sonata. Watch the video above for more in-depth directions, or check out the guide below. If you prefer us to take care of the update for you, you’re always welcome to visit our Hyundai dealership in Conshohocken, PA, where we would be happy to assist you.
The new Android Auto update is compatible with the 8-inch touchscreen navigation system found in the Sonata Sport, Eco, Limited, Sport 2.0T and Limited 2.0T models. Once you install it, your Android smartphone will seamlessly connect with your Sonata. You’ll have access to the Google Now card-based experience, with suggested locations and travel times based on previous searches, as well as your calendar entries, weather information and your music library.
