BREAKING: Hyundai Canada Appears To Be In The Process Of Rolling Out Free Upgrades To Apple CarPlay And Android Auto For Customers

For those Canadians who have been waiting patiently for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay upgrades to come to their Hyundai Canada vehicles, it appears that Hyundai Canada is in the process of answering their prayers.

I noted today while I was in India that Hyundai has changed the landing pages on their website for both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It appears when it comes to Android Auto, there’s support for some models dating back to 2014 and for Apple CarPlay, there’s support for vehicles going back to 2016. Excuse the pun, but your mileage may vary on this front when it comes to your Hyundai Canada vehicle.

Here’s why I think that they still rolling this out, if you click on any of the download links, it takes you to the Hyundai Software Upgrade site that I mentioned last year. There’s nothing on this page that refers to additional models having downloads for either infotainment system beyond the ones that are listed on the page at present. And when I type in my VIN for the 2016 Hyundai Tucson that I own, it doesn’t work.

I’m reaching out to Hyundai Canada, and hopefully they’ll get back to me with a comment while I am still awake in India.

UPDATE: It’s just after 4AM here in India and I am posting an update. Dedication or insanity. You be the judge.

In any case, here’s a screen shot of one of the pages in question:
