Just ordered a 2010 Santa Fe Limited with the navigation system, from a dealer who had none in stock to actually show me. He was unable to even tell me if the nav system is voice activated (uses voice commands). Can someone give me the answer? Also, one thing he did tell me is that if navigation is ordered on the 2010 Santa Fe, the USB ipod connector is deleted -- anyone know?

not sure about the voice activation, but i find it odd that he would say that about the ipod/aux inputs...mainly because i have seen factory nav systems with the integrated bluetooth and ipod/aux inputs before

Have been watching this last item and still not sure. Also hoping to hear from someone who has one. It was an issue for 2009, but all of the literature seems to indicate that having the nav no longer implies the deletion of USB. Check this, and note the word "standard" that I bolded. Would seem to indicate that they've sorted this out.

By popular demand, Hyundai's factory-installed navigation system featuring a high-resolution touch-screen and voice command technology is now available on all Hyundai Santa Fe models. This new touch screen navigation system also offers a rearview camera and XM NavTraffic. The rearview camera enables the driver to confidently reverse under any circumstances. Be it day or night, a clear image of all objects and surroundings behind the vehicle are instantly displayed on the navigation screen. XM NavTraffic enhances the navigation system by showing real-time traffic data when it's needed most. In addition, Bluetooth, iPod®/USB auxiliary inputs and steering wheel audio controls are now [b]standard in all models.


OTOH, the only thing that activates a Santa Fe nav system is $ :P . LOTS of them. No voice activation. I still prefer a good stand-alone unit for navigation. Much cheaper, more and better features, and more flexible use.

Thanks -- hope you're right. I guess I won't know for sure 'til I get the car!

Thanks for this -- is the quote from Hyundai literature or is it from a 3rd party reviewer? The quote does say, "...navigation system featuring a high-resolution touch-screen and [b]voice command technology, so that's good news if it's true.

Came from a reviewer. That's about the only place you can find details on this unit. The Hyundai literature is very sketchy. When I was doing my research on the option, I was careful to assure that I only looked at reviews of the US model since there are so many variations across the globe.

Here's one that was very specific: http://www.netcarshow.com/hyundai/20...fe_us-version/

If you read carefully, a lot of it sounds like Hyundai ad copy from somewhere, and so I gave it a little more credence.

Sorry if the poor attempt at humor on the "voice" thing threw you. I'm just not a fan of 99% of the in-dash nav systems. When they start to partner with serious automotive GPS companies on a wide scale instead of these oddball Chinese manufacturers, I'll start to reconsider, but $1200 or more for a $250 device's functionality (or less) just doesn't get me excited. My particular case has me uploading new custom POI files to mine on a weekly basis, and map updates from a 'crowdsourced' method weekly as well. Can't find those on any in-dash system I've seen so far.

Thanks again for the link -- don't think I had come across that one. You're right that the Hyundai literature (and their website) is sketchy at best. You're also right that in dash nav systems are not a good deal compared to the portable ones, but I just wanted the convenience of the in dash mounting, the lack of wires, and the back up camera. My last two cars had the back up camera, and I now can't live without it!
Thanks again for your help!

I've had my 2010 Santa Fe Nav for almost 4 months now (I live in Canada) .
The Nav unit is voice command and works quite well. It takes about 15 minutes to program your voice. You can also give it commands to change the radio station or use a different input ie. usb. I don't have an Ipod but I did use my 40gig external drive and it tucks in quite well just below the usb port. The hard drive is very easy to access and I think the MP3's sound better then the XM radio. The radio has quite a bit of power even though it isn't Infinity. We tried both and although the Infinity has nicer highs in the sound quality my wife wanted the Nav unit built in. There is a subwoofer and the lows were comparable to the Infinity system. The unit can only take one CD at a time whereas I think you could put three in the Infinity.
I am a little worried as I have no instructions of how to get updates for maps.

The rear camera only turns on when you put it in reverse and has come in quite handy.

Is the 2010 version still the LG model with the 8GB CF card? If so, you'll be going here for your updates: www.mapnsoft.com

When you see the $299 price tag for the annual map update, don't say we didn't warn you!
