I found that site earlier, and was able to get the download by providing my VIN, strange thing is it already shows Andriod Auto on the display, I will have to check later today.

ooh, really? For Carplay?
Cool. (about time, Apple--LOL)
Yes. Apple CarPlay within iOS v12 coming out in September.

why google maps or waze?
Those are 2 of the most requested apps for Apple CarPlay, as both of them are far better map apps than Apple Maps. In addition, WAZE features some nice real-time traffic information and alternative routes.

Too bad there's no support for the 2016 Santa Fe.

Any reason why the 2016 Tucson and Sonata are eligible for the download but the 2016 Santa Fe is not?

I wish they had firmware for the 2014 to talk to newer phones through the usb. I wanted to get into hi-res music, but hi-res music and Bluetooth are not a good combination. The only other avenue I can think of is a Dragonfly Red DAC, a USB OTG cable, really good 3.5mm cable and then use the aux port. No album art or anything will show on the main screen, but the audio signal should work.

I just purchased a 2017 Santa Fe sport 2.0T ultimate and very dissappointed that the previous owner didnt update the free software to apply carplay, I have notified Hyundai Canada and they apologize and said i will have to pay for it at $175 usd. which is highway robbery for carplay. If any one can give me a copy of there update would very much appreciated. I am located in Markham Ontario
Thanks
Mike

UPDATE : GOOD NEWS FOR KIA AND HYUNDAI OWNERS IN CANADA AND USA.


SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD link for Hyundai (You can change the country on the top right of this webpage)


SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD link for KIA (You can change the country on the top right of this webpage):


As of September 2020, several KIA and Hyundai models, some even as old as 2014 Kia Soul for example, in Canada and US have access to FREE MapNSoft Map Update. This update includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. These features were introduced in software update version 10.5 originally in 2018. So somehow if you are stuck on an older software version, now you can update your software for free. The one thing to note, it that if your model is eligible for the sw version 14.5 update, and your current SD card is 16GB, you will need to get a new 32GB SD Card (Class 10) which is about $15 online. If your vehicle is eligible for the sw version 14 update, then you are fine with your current 16GB SD Card. It is good to see that Canada is no longer being ignored. You can start your software download here: Mapcare | Home page

@Suhail Halai Elantra 2017 /Canadian (no navigation) doesn’t show on that website you’re referring to.
I got a used car and I have just the Android Auto. I’ve been searching for a solution for days and I really can’t find how to get an update for my car and start using Car Play.

does anyone know if I can update my unit using a version that contains map?
