So if you're out of reception, like in the boonies, that means it's useless? That would be bad, as where we travel, most of the distances are without reception.

Yeah, my 2022 Calligraphy has nav, but my point was CarPlay (I have an iPhone) would be basically useless to me. I have to look into the downloading of maps, since the factory nav of my 2022 is absolute crap. The best Hyundai nav I've had was on the 2016 Optima SX-L. The 2021 Palisade Calligraphy was worse. This 2022 SF Calligraphy (and the 2023 G70 as well) is downright horrible. I've missed exits left and right, and that's with my wife paying attention to the maps too. Half the destinations I've used couldn't make it there, due to wrong streets, wrong traffic flow (wrong way), or non-existent location (you just arrived at your destination, but it wasn't there). And it's the latest map version. What I really miss is the 'bong' from the Optima, which told you exactly where the heck to turn. I'm going to set Apple CP myself too (my wife has it), and use it whenever possible. And learn how to download maps, to avoid areas with no service. Oh, and the traffic is crap too; was stopped a freaking hour in Seattle, and the damn thing still showed green all that time.

I think you need to reread how to set up your NAV system
I don't have to. This is like my 7th Hyundai with nav, so I know how to use it by now :). And probably my 20th vehicle with nav, so not a newbie. And that's probably my frustration, since previous nav systems were great, and Hyundai has been going backwards. And the mapping just sucks, at least in Oregon and Washington... but that's not Hyundai's fault, as there are only a couple of companies which do that. Today it sent me the wrong way yet again, but it happened to be correct. Ha ha. Oh, and I haven't even mentioned taking us around freaking circles, like if there was an option to make the route as long as possible, and to catch as much traffic as possible. So I use it as a back up now, and one of my daughters has been mapping every destination on her phone, and 9 out of 10 times my nav is wrong. Go figure. But yes, I prefer the car's nav due to the HUD directions, but it needs to get (MUCH) better, starting with the 'bong' when you need to turn (like on the Optima). It also gets future instructions way too in advance, and that's when I've made most of the wrong turns. And this is with the 4 of us looking (and hearing) at the freaking map, and we all have college degrees or better, so it's not that we're stupid :). This system surpassed my Porsche's for worst navigation.
