I took a disk image of the SD card using my MacBook Pro before I popped it into my Tucson. That way I have a backup of it. I am currently doing the update now and snapping photos. Update to come.

Hi The_It_Nerd,
If you don't mind can you take a some pics of the 3-D birdseye navigation ? That and the updated maps would be a reason to upgrade for US folks if those are worth it. I used to have a Veloster and it had nice 3-D maps and I don't know why Hyundai did not include those with the Tucson.
Let us know if any other improvements besides AA.
Thanks

Sure. I can get that done. In the meantime, I have finished the update. It took almost 40 minutes, but I am now a CANADIAN who now has Android Auto AND Apple CarPlay in my 2016 Tucson. I'm going to write something up now on my blog and I will post a link when it's done.

That is a good news!

It sure sucks however that we CANADIANS do not get this for free like the rest of the world and are fed a shovelfull of BS with the HARDWARE incompatibility. All was needed was a software update like everyone else.

Thank you for testing this for us.

Now i need to think if I want to burn 300+$ to get it now or wait if Hyundai Canada will do something to make things right.

Can you please send the link to your blog post to the people you spoke to yesterday?

The blog post in question was at the start of this thread, but I've pasted the link below:

https://itnerd.wordpress.com/2016/06...lay-the-facts/

While I am at it, I am currently at a press event announcing new products from Linksys, and as part of "testing out" their new WiFi routers, I managed to crank out a post about the update process and my early impressions:

https://itnerd.wordpress.com/2016/06...yundai-tucson/

I plan on doing some in depth testing on Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and I will be posting two videos demonstrating them in the coming days (translation: when I have 4 or 5 hours to script, record, edit, and post the videos). I'll let you know when that is done.

Hahahaha.

thank you both for the link to the original interview post.

What I meant was to send this link
https://itnerd.wordpress.com/2016/06...yundai-tucson/

To Mr. Chad Heard at Hyundai Canada that maintained it could not be done.

Congrats on probably being the first Canadian Tucson 2016 owner with both Android Auto and Apple Carplay
