The music plays fine when connected to USB or via Bluetooth but frequently the song displayed does not advance when the next song is displayed. If I hit a button such as the volume button on the steering wheel or radio the correct song name will then be displayed but the once the song finishes the next song won't be displayed unless I do it again. Sometimes it displays correctly but more frequently it doesn't. I don't think it's a problem with the cable because when connected to my iPod Nano it displays Hyundai on my Nano screen. Do you think there is something wrong with the Music player?

I you search there is already a thread on this. They have a fix and everything for it however if you have a 2013 your radio is under warranty for 3/36K.

The music on my ipod or iphone via cable or Bluetooth plays fine, it's just when the song goes to the next song the displayed song does not change, and if I turn up or down the the volume the correct song name displays. This is something I can live with but is just annoying. Using Bluetooth the song name was never displayed, just with the cable. I did a search on firmware update and didn't find any. If this was a known issue on 2013 Sonata GLS's I would think that there would be a ton of posts.

Blue--is your iPhone 5 using the Lightening-to-30 Pin adapter cable? I remember reading that the Hyundai audio system does not play well with those...just a thought

No, my iphone 5 is using the lightening cord. I thought that might have been the problem so I switched to my old Nano with the regular cord. Same thing. The only difference is Nano recognizes the cord and displays the words "Hyundai". Music works on both and like I said not displaying the next song is more a less just a nuisance but I think it should always work, not just sporadically.

I would then point the finger at your aux port.

Mine was replaced under warranty 2 years ago b/c it shorted when using a 3.5mm cable from my cell phone. Possibly the USB port in yours is shorting or broken and not allowing the information to pass to the radio.

I don't use the AUX port. I use the USB port.

Well, well, well. I used an Apple OEM cable with my Nano and no problems whatsoever with the song being displayed not advancing when the next song started playing. So the problem appears to be using a non-Apple cable.

Even with a non-Apple cable the songs played but there are 2 problems:

(1) when advance to next song, the song on display does not change

(2) Song repeats even though Repeat function is off.

These 2 were more of a nusiance because I always could hear the music.

Sorry I looked and couldn't find the thread that I saw it in and I should have specified that it was in a different model forum however they have the same radio. What I could remember is if he left the car in acc mode for a couple of seconds before he started it then it stopped happening. It was in the same thread as the one I found to have the radio randomly search through the entire USB drive instead of just the one folder.

Thanks for the post. It appears it is a function of not using an Apple OEM cable because using an Apple cable everything works perfect now. I might mention using cable displays song information but using Bluetooth never has displayed song information and I think it was designed this way.

Spoke too soon. Problem with non advancing song information is back, even with Apple OEM cable. I guess I will just live with it. Turning up the volume changes the info on the display to the song playing. I really don't thing it's a problem with the Hyundai Music player but a bug with Apple software. Oh well.

After having no success with non Apple and OEM iPod and iPhone cables I tried a different tact which I should have done along time ago. I took my Playlist from iTunes and put my 700 songs on a USB Flash Drive. I kept all my songs in Artist Folders created by iTunes. Works like a charm. No more song titles on the display not advancing when the next song starts playing. I love it! And the best part is I can just leave the Flash Drive in the USB port all of the time. I don't think the cold weather here in Connecticut could hurt the Flash Drive. After all the Sonata's Music Player is out in the cold too :) Besides that my car is in the garage 90% of the time.

It happened again with the Flash Drive. The song on the display didn't advance when the next song started playing. Darn. I can live with if I wasn't so anal about perfection. After all there isn't anything wrong with the songs playing. I turned off the car and on again and it started displaying the the song title fine again when the next song started playing. It's seems better than my iPhone 5 connected by the lightening cable and isn't happening as much. Question: is this a flaw with my USB port or does this happen once in awhile?

I use my USB all the time and I never remember this happening. Try to leave your car in ACC mode for a couple of seconds before you start it. I think that is what I saw the other guy talk about that worked. Man I wish I could remember where that thread was.
