Hi. I purchased my i10 on June 2021 with wired AA and Carplay.
6 months later, I can purchase the same car with same specs, but it has wireless AA and Carplay.

Is this a software upgrade? New hardware?
I tried contacting Hyundai and I got a lot of contradictory information. One dealer said it costs 2000 DKK to upgrade, another said I need to buy another car. Third dealer said it is not possible to get it wireless at all.

Regards,

Thanks for the reply, but it seems the model from 2022 has native wireless AA and CarPlay and the one which is 6 month older (june 2021) has only wired versions. Since there no face-lift and they're both AC3, I was wondering how can that be. Could it be just a "software switch"?

i think is hardware upgrade, but i am not sure 100%..
for the wireless android auto/ carplay we need a wifi hotspot, and it seems 2020, 2021 models they don not have wifi module, only bluetooth..
if you check the general settings on screen the wifi widget is not available.
maybe the main circuits board of infotainment in our models they have a slot for optional hardware upgrade..
Android Auto's wireless mode is not operating over Bluetooth like phone calls and media streaming,
there's nowhere near enough bandwidth in Bluetooth to run Android Auto, so the feature need to used Wi-Fi to communicate with the infotainment system..

Now the question is, could it be the WiFi module was there all the time but the SW was not ready, and hence disabled?
I will have my yearly service soon and I will inquire into this.
