Apparently it will start in the Genesis but will roll out quickly to the Sonata. The article (translated from Korean) is a bit vague but I'm assuming that it would port your phone's display to the dash display. So you could control Pandora and use Google maps for example. It doesn't say if the car will get an LTE chip so that it could connect without a phone.

Hyundai & Kia applies the Android AVN system to all models

lol, Kia offers that NU system which basically is an app that remote starts, opens windows, locks/unlocks, turns on lights and can function as a GPS to find your car....

It's cool and all, but I don't 100% trust it.... I mean hackers these days are getting smarter and smarter.... so by using a app on my phone I 100% don't trust it yet....

That's why I have full insurance. Let them steal it and ship it overseas; I get a brand new one! I won't argue, it's only a car!

I'm guessing that even if it's hacked and the car is started and unlocked-- you still can't actually drive it without the key fob in the car.

I don't trust anything 100%-- except Mother Nature

So it would seem like this is more than just an Android front-end to the head unit. More like the MyFord Touch system that is offered in the US that controls many of the cars functions. (HVAC, navigation, heated/cooled, seats, SYNC, and telematics)

NU must be KDM only because all USDM Kia products have UVO, which is a version of Microsoft Sync that was developed for Ford.

Not so sure I want this in my next Hyundai. Many Ford owners hate their MyFordTouch systems because they lock up. Also many of the buttons are capacitive instead of hard buttons, making it hard to work the controls with gloves on. BTW that system is based on a Microsoft embedded product so that may have more to do with it than anything.

I have had my MFT since April and it has not locked up once. However the capacitive buttons are tough to get used to and since everything is through the screen, you have to look at it. No button pressing by braille. However the voice stuff is pretty good and most functions I use for environment are quick commands.

BUT...I do suggest anybody that drives a car with that type of system to sit and really play with it. Sales people point out the easy highlights and steer you away from the big issues (obviously). It still annoys the crap out of me that the AC button (Capacitive) doesn't do diddly squat and you have to go to the screen and click it off there or the compressor still runs. :rolleyes:

Love this! Apps like Waze and such would be awesome on the console screen.

Hyundai has actually been working on this for quite a while. I stumbled across news of it sometime mid this year.

Hyundai wants your NFC-enabled smartphone to be your car keys — Tech News and Analysis
HYUNDAI REVEALS HIGHER LEVELS OF SMARTPHONE-CAR CONNECTIVITY : Hyundai Media Centre

I wouldn't expect the cars to have an LTE chip. It's nothing like that, just NFC so the phone can take the place of the keyfob.

Personally I wouldn't trust it or want it. Phones are more likely to be stolen so the last thing I'd want to do is rely on one instead of the keyfob (assuming you could start the car with your phone simply being present, but I doubt it'll be taken that far).

On the bright side, it's about **** time an auto manufacturer stopped catering exclusively to Apple's crap.
