Hyundai Australia Owners Make Some Progress In Getting Apple CarPlay & Android Auto

Posted in Commentary with tags on October 9, 2017 by itnerd

I have an update for Hyundai owners in Australia. It appears that Hyundai Australia is trying to address the desire to have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in their vehicles. Hyundai Australia have issued an exchange program that will let owners retrofit a head unit for $795 Australian dollars including labour. The owner gets to keep the old head unit. The weird thing is that Hyundai Australia haven’t made an offical public announcement of any sort and apparently all they did was to put it in a dealer bulletin. To get the swap owners need to book it in with an Hyundai Dealer.

Now this is a bit pricey, but they are at least Hyundai Australia are trying. If I get any more info, I’ll pass it along to you. Alternately, you can stay tuned to this Facebook page. But in the meantime, here are a couple of pictures of what the head unit looks like after the swap:
