Has any got any input on replace the factory radio (single cd, am/fm) with the factory version of the touch screen dvd, gps, bluetooth version. I've read through some of the threads here talking about replacement on a 2009 Sonata and on 2008 Santa Fe. I've found several sources for the unit for 2006 Sonata NF and some that say 2006-2008 Sonata NF. Can I imply that the footprint and cabling is the same for the 3 model years?
Also, I've basically seen 2 types out on the market. Photos are attached to this message. Any comment on either?

If those are really "Factory Versions" they are not of the US models. You will want to check that the dash unit will fit in your car if its coming from Korea, I'm skeptical of it working, since I've never seen any of the korean import sites selling these units, which I would expect them to since they sell just about every other korean model part for US drivers Also there is definetely no TV function on my 09 Sonata with Navigation. The closest thing I would say is the aftermarket systems which you can find cheap on Ebay(the generic China ones)- but these actually look really good too!

scooterw62, the models you pictured are indeed the aftermarket Chinese products that sean1k2 alluded to. As far as North America is concerned, the Sonata did not offer a factory navigation system prior to the 2009 model year. I have read that Korea offered one, but I've never seen it with my own eyes.

The wiring is the same for 2006-2008 Sonata's. The 2009 uses a different wiring harness.

I've read decent things about the Chinese models you mentioned. Try sending a PM to delhiboy3732 - he sold them at one time and should have pretty good information about them. Check out this link to one of his previous topics about the aftermarket system.

The pic on the right actually looks like it might be the Korean OEM Nav. that you said you read about korea offering. If you look closely at the disc insert and the buttons around that area they look very similar if not identical to the OEM 06-08 CD insert and buttons, even the decals for MP3 above the disc insert look the same as the 06-08 model. But knowing if it'll fit and work is the issue I would say, you might have to get a special GPS antenna as well, because I heard at least on the 09's the shark fin on the car is where all the antennas are placed.

Actually, I'm 97.86% positive the model on the right is the EXACT same model that delhiboy3732 sold/sells (it's even the same picture he uses as his current avatar). I actually thought the one on the left might be the OEM model, but the black bezel is very suspect.

The one thing I can tell from those pictures is that the software is different between the two models. The one on the right contains the same software that the manufacturer uses on MANY models of aftermarket DVD/Nav systems, for MANY different makes/models.

the one on the right looks better in my opinion, I wouldnt dare own any aftermarket radio, especially living in Texas, had a Honda Accord awhile back and was in the whole subwoofer phase and had my stuff jacked over $1200 in equiptment(worked at Best Buy so got discounts) in china town! Was a very sad MLK day! Will never forget, so I tend to stay OEM with the radios and stuff.

Me too, but this OEM unit leaves a LOT to be desired. I typically stay factory because I HATE the aftermarket look. These units or a double-din in-dash nav system would help maintain the stock look, and the OEM-looking ones are much less likely to be stolen.

I, too, live in Texas, but I'm not as worried about having things stolen. I try my best to keep away from the shady areas. I'd never spend $1200 on a stereo system, though. I'd likely cap my audio spending at around $500 for the car. That way, if it was ever stolen, I wouldn't be out a ridiculous amount of money.

BTW, what area of Texas are you in?

Thanks for the quick and valuable feedback. I've requested an audience with delhiboy3732 for advice. I'll keep the thread posted as to progress.
As a note, each unit is from a different location:
the one with the buttons on the side is from this location: Unit with side buttons

the other I've seen in several places.

The prices range from $470 to $700, less expensive than some of the non-OEM looking unit which you have to buy the 2-din console plate and modify the wiring.

You inquired about my location. Atlanta.

Yea I spent about 500-600 when I bought the stuff since I worked at Best Buy way back in the day. Without my discount it would have cost about 1200 though. I wouldnt have gotten it for that price. I'm in Houston but I just moved back from Austin a few weeks ago. Houstons China town(where all the good restaurants are) is where my stuff was stolen, unfortunately Houston is setup where the shady areas are entwined with the nicer areas. You'll live in a nice house then literally 5 mins down the street there will be some rundown fast food joint and gas station where shady people thrive. Its just the way Houston is. Austin is a bit better though as long as you stay away from the East and Northeast side you'll be okay. Then again Houston is the 4th largest city in the US, driving from one end to the other can take upward of 1 hour.
