Help! I've just bought a 2017 Tuscon Premium SE and I can't find a way of having the NAV on without the Radio or Media playing. There is a mute switch on the steering wheel but that only works until you switch off. Next time you start the car, the radio is on again. Surely there must be a way of turning the radio off without switching the whole system off, butI can't find anything in the manual.

Push the volume knob once and it will switch to AV OFF.

Not trying to be a _ _ _ _ but didn't your Tucson come with an owners manual and a smaller booklet covering the entertainment unit?

Yes, this forum is here to help other owners with questions and issues but sometimes you have to try to do some research on your own first for simple questions.

Yes, I've read the manual and couldn't find any reference to turning the radio off. But thanks for beoing so helpful.
Page 4-18 of the Owners Manual. Glad to be of assistance.....
Maybe I am not making myself clear. I am trying to stop the SOUND of the radio/media, not turn off the screen. Even if I turn the volume all the way down to silent, as soon as I switch the ignition off and on again, the sound returns.

Doesn't sound right...If I turn my radio volume down so I can't hear it, it stays that way until I turn it up again, even if I shut the car off and on numerous times.

Maybe someone else can shed some light on your issue.

I'll try mine later and report back.

It wouldn't surprise me if there is a default volume it goes to upon startup. The memory within the system seems to be a bit hit and miss. It appears to reload all contacts and phone information every time you start, rather than just look for changes, and the bloody sat-nav woman always pipes up even though you set her to mute every time.

If I turn the volume right down to nothing, then turn the ignition off and on again, I can hear the radio very quietly, so it's not staying at the level it was before but it's not loud. I'm just surprised that there isn't some simple way of turning the radio/media sound off altogether.

Did you try what I suggested? Push the volume knob once. That turns off the radio but not the screen. Should be a very simple thing.

When I push the volume knob once, everything goes off and I just get the time on the display.

I guess it must depend on the type of system.
Mine is a Limited trim with the 8 inch display.
When I push the volume (power) knob once then it changes to AV OFF. If I push and hold the volume knob then everything turns off and only the time is shown.

Feh. Expecting a woman to be silent...

I only have the base radio. The volume per "input" is separate. I.E. Radio volume at 12, Media (my phone) volume at 30. Power off, back on, same input volumes remain. If I turn the radio volume to Zero, that does not alter any other input's volume (e.g. Media).

Volume controls on my phone also affect the total output on my head unit. So half-volume on my phone (iPhone SE) and head unit volume at 30 basically results in head unit output of 15.

Maybe this is what's going on?

Is GPS on the upgraded head unit a separate "input"?

Oh, and even if my head unit is OFF, my phone still pairs with it and I can still receive/make calls through it. Totally surprised me when I had the unit off so I could talk to people in the car and it started ringing...

Use the Mute button on the steering wheel......See if that helps......Before you ask, it's on the left control panel..<img src="http://www.hyundai-forums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><img src="http://www.hyundai-forums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
Yes, the mute button works, but only until you switch the ignition off. Next time you switch on the ignition the radio blares out.

No offense intended, but that's how mute works on pretty much every electronic audio equipment I've ever owned. i.e. power off and standby disables mute.

I wasn't asking for the mute button to do anything else, I was simply responding to someone else's comment, and explaining why it is not the solution to my quest for a means to stop the sound from the radio unless I specifically want it. I have not owned a car with a modern "infotainment" system before and I find it odd that you cannot turn on the map or the navigation without the radio playing.

I had the same problem, you need to go into your settings —> sound —> and you will see a setting for radio volume put it down to 0 what that will do is set the volume to that default every time you start the car does the same for phone
