Hyundai Makes Android Auto and CarPlay Available As a Do-It-Yourself Install

"Hyundai today made it possible for owners of select models to install Android Auto and CarPlay themselves. Hyundai owners will need to download the navigation system update from Hyundai's web site to a USB drive or SD card and then update the car manually. The company posted detailed directions to its web site to help walk customers through the update process. Hyundai says the download and install process can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours, depending on the vehicle. Some of the models compatible with the upgrade are the 2015/16 Sonata and Genesis, 2016 Elantra and Tucson, and the 2017 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport. Android Auto and CarPlay both bring certain smartphone features to the dashboard, including access to navigation, phone and messaging, and music playback. Customers who want the update but aren't comfortable doing it themselves can have it performed at a Hyundai dealer for a fee."

HYUNDAI RELEASES DO-IT-YOURSELF INSTALLATION FOR SMARTPHONE INTEGRATIONS ON SEVERAL EXISTING MODELS

Because the hardware doesn't provide the capability to support it.

Sadly, it looks like Hyundai was more "forward thinking" than FCA. They built in this kind of upgradability.

There are chopstick manufacturers that are more forward thinking than FCA/Jeep

What hardware is uConnect missing? We can connect the phones via usb to the front below the radio. I would think if the firmware was written as such, it should take advantage of it.
