@Pipe There is no unit that has those connectors. I researched it endlessly when I got mine. I had to build custom connectors for mine but it works fine. If you don't want to go that route (and Best Buy or a radio shop will build them for you), I still have my old CD radio if you want to buy it and swap it for yours. It worked fine when I took it out 3 years ago.

and one other thing... the intro to this vid which shows you how to remove the stereo, says that a stuck CD changer can often be fixed by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, then reconnecting it. Might want to try that first...

I'm on fire today... some searching around and I find a unit that talks about our connectors! They do say that if you have the amplifier, tell them and they will give you the correct connector. So, it COULD be plug n play. However, later on, they show a piccie of our connectors and I think they are saying that they don't have that. It's confusing - maybe ask them???

There's a black jumper in the interior fuse box that will accomplish the same thing without getting your fingers dirty :wink:

It is used to avoid battery drain between manufacture and delivery from various low (but constant) drain components like the radio. Pull it out and you're completely shut down. It's designed to flip 90 and reinsert for storage.

Finally coming up for air...
Here's the picture of my head unit. Grinner, I tried the procedure in that video (a few times), but all I get is "initializing" as it reboots. It then hangs there forever. I have sent the eBay seller you found a message asking about fitment. It it will fit, there is my answer. In that listing, they talk about an external amplifier...does my Infinity setup have it? If so, where is it?

OOPS! I had the wrong video up when I responded. I tried the reset procedure where you pull the radio fuse for a few minutes and reinsert. Grinner, I am going to use your video when (if) I find a suitable replacement. It's the best one out there for radio removal on our cars. Thanks!

The eBay seller got back to me. The pictured connector requires an adapter which they do not sell. Who knows where (or if) I can get one.

You can get a harness made at installer.com where they will connect 2 harnesses together to fit a) your car harness and b) the harness from the NAV/DVD unit.

However, I think this one won't work unless it has pre-outs which are the low-level outputs that go into the amplifier and are not powerful enough on their own to fire the speakers.

If they do have those, or they can supply you with the correct harness for the pre-outs, then you can get this wired up.

For your question on where it is - the Inifinity amp is under the passenger seat.

Cheers, let us know.

Yes, that's the same as my unit. So, if you have no luck upgrading, my offer still stands... :wink:

I originally started with the OEM Nav (2012 Limited). The oem look is very hard to let go, I loved it. But it just lacked options. So I went aftermarket with a Pioneer AVIC X850bt. Also a great unit, but also lacking with options - specifically eq tuning...so I have now embarked onto the CarPC venture, using Optical connection to a DSP. Should give all the options I will ever need in a car. Overkill? Perhaps. But I only live once. :)

I have the 2008 Santa Fe GLS (2.7L) with the base head unit (single disc, no navigation). Does my head unit have the Sirius/XM tuner built in, or is the tuner external? I'm wanting to get a new head unit but don't want to lose satellite radio in the process.

Does anyone know the answer?

I am trying to replace the head unit of my wife's 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited (Touring) Head-unit with the CarJoying (RK3188) android HU. The Sante Fe has Infinity Speakers with rear seat entertainment (RSE) but no Navigation. It has a button for XM and a button for Logic 7 and I *think* it has an amplifier under the front passenger seat.

Wife's Wishlist
Good quality bluetooth for music and phone calls
Keep SWC (Steering wheel control)
Good Navigation GPS
Ability to just plug in a suitable harness (no cutting wires etc.)
Ability to play audio from RSE (rear seat entertainment) . A nice to have is to keep the ability to control RSE from SWC

Q1: Has anyone installed a CarJoying (RK3188) on Santa Fe?
Q2: Does my car indeed have a Amplifier, if so, do I need an HU that has preout or would it work equally well with Line Output Converter?
Q3: will I be able to control RSE from the front?
Q4: What adapters would I need? I looked it up on Crutchfield and it listed the following four
(a) PAC SWI-RC Steering Wheel Control Adapter
(b) Scosche HY1612B Dash Kit
(c) Scosche SLC4 Line Output Converter
(d) Metra 70-7302 Receiver Wiring Harness


Thanks a bunch
Rockmeister
PS: Carjoying RK3188 is available on Amazon but I cannot add a link (yet) on this forum.

Android 4.4.4 unit for 2007 Santa Fe CM

Hi,

I've checked the latest pages of this thread and found some good recommendations. Problem with Pioneer, JVC et al, for me is that their maps are regional and I live in Sweden. Because of that, I'd like an Android based system. Looking at ebay, Amazon it's hard to tell if the highest recommended units would fit a Santa Fe CM or not. Looking at Aliexpress, I can easily find units that according to the sellers would fit. But none of them have any user recommendations, so there's no way to tell if they're good or not.

Anyone has good experience of an Android based system and may give me a recommendation?
Requirements:
Bluetooth
Nav
Back camera (would like to use wireless)
Radio

BR //Elis

Hey guys, so I just read most of this thread and wondering what the general consensus is for the best aftermarket unit to buy? I have a 2010 Santa Fe GL which does not have the infinity system or navigation.

Here is a picture of my factory head unit:

Thanks guys!

Howdy everybody - I just installed an aftermarket radio in my 2007 Santa Fe Limited. Everything works great except the backup camera! I got the 12v power from the backup lamps in the tailgate, and took the 12v reverse signal from the red connector (pin 2) behind the passenger kick panel.

When I put the car in reverse, I get a signal and video. HOWEVER, when I step on the brake, the signal goes away and then comes back when I take my foot off the brake.

Any clues as to where I went wrong? I'm thinking of just wiring the power and reverse signal together and taking both from the reverse lamp.

Any help or insights would be appreciated!

Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade the standard unit that came on my SantaFe with the NAV/GPS/REAR Camera OEM unit from another santa fe at a junk yard.

Does anyone know the Hyundai PN for the NAV/Camera unit that was in the 2012? That would help my search.

Thanks

Hi all,
I figured I'd add my recent experience in replacing my in-dash stereo with a unit that has more features. The stock unit in my 20080 has the simple AM/FM/CD setup and I wanted to go all out.

I purchased three different rear cameras to pick from;
one that mounts on the license plate.
one that mounts into the license plate light.
one that mounts directly to the plastic trim piece above the license plate. (I ended up using this one.)

The reason I picked that one was that I could mount the camera dead center of the hatch and all of the wires would be hidden. The camera I used is also chrome - which blends into the rear rather nicely. (I'll post pictures when everything is complete.)

The stereo I purchased was a 2GB Android unit running 5.1.1 OS.
If you were to search on Amazon for JOYING 7" Newest Android Car Stereo 2GB RAM 32GB ROM Android 5.1 Head Unit Quad Core 1024x600 Double 2 Din Touch you would find it. :)
It has AM/FM (no CD) - 7" touch screen, Wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, Rear camera, and more features to look-up on Amazon.
I had to customize a mounting kit to make it fit - as the stereo appears to be slightly larger than double din sized.
Also, two last pieces I'm working on is running the video cable from the rear hatch to the stereo, and connecting the steering wheel controls. The 15 foot cable from camera to dash appears to get a decent amount of interference and it's currently just strung through the passenger compartment, I'm pretty sure it will only get worse running tucked behind interior panels. The steering wheel controls appear to be pretty straight-forward. The stereo has a "key1 and key2" wire, both of which are to be connected to the stereo wires. Disclaimer - the "Scosche Radio Wiring Harness for 2007-Up Hyundai Santa Fe Harness" I purchased does NOT include all wires needed. It took being a little creative to the wires to use for the steering wheel controls (and the results are still pending.)

I'll update this post, or just again with pictures when everything is complete - with a list of part numbers.

I've looked into this as well, and found this, I think this is what you're looking for, there are some PNs see these links:
Used 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe Radio Audio |
https://www.hollanderparts.com/used-auto-parts/2011/hyundai/santa-fe/electrical/638-radio-audio/638-51423-canada-market,-receiver,-navigation/part-126158-6942-1#&gid=null&pid=3

I considered going this way, but for the price which is outrageous for a standard unit, I'd rather switch to an after market.

The one I have now has no NAV or rear camera, and the BT sucks; when I use my cell with maps (connected via BT) and I'm listening to the radio, it won't interrupt the radio when there are voice directions. I need to put it to the PHONE setting. It does interrupt for calls, but that's it - very poor design in my opinion.
