17 Elantra Limited Maps

Just purchased a new 17 Limited yesterday, thought I would ask here before calling the dealership. I see there is an update for my maps on MnSoft's site. Do the dealerships offer a free upgrade to the maps, or do I have to pay the $235 that MnSoft is charging if I want to update?

Somewhat will depend on the dealer and the timing - for example - I think the latest version is MnS 10.0. - you might check with MapNSoft also.

Often if that update came out within 2-3 months of getting the car, you can get the update free.

(You can almost definitely get the update free or work it into the price if the dealer has cars on the lot with MnS 10.0 already installed, and you say "I'd like to buy this car, but it has MnS 9.0 on it, so I'll wait until you get one that is the same color with MnS 10.0".)

Now, if you bought the car 4-5 months ago and MnS just came out, you probably would have to buy the upgrade.

Regardless, it can't hurt to ask.

(I'm bad at it, but ask politely but forcefully - i.e. not "I just bought this car and noticed there is a new map update, could I get that for free, or do I have to pay for it?", but "I just bought this car yesterday and you sold it to me with OUTDATED maps. I expect the car to have the latest maps on it when I purchased it. When can you update them for me?")

My dealer is giving five years of map updates for free, got that in the contract. Not sure if this is a Hyundai thing or a dealer thing.

I did call that 1-888 number listed at the rear of that multimedia handbook at the end of the Navigation section, thinking I could download map updates for free, but was told anything from them would be 219 bucks. Thought this would save me an 80 mile trip. They only offer two map updates per year.

Five years ago, happened to be at my Target store, found a Garmin nuvi 1450LMT both maps and traffic on half price for 100 bucks with free lifetime maps. Have a new map update every month, so far 60 free map updates, hmmm, this would add up to $13140,00!

Also have google maps on my smart phone, been getting map updates for free every two weeks, they really improved this program. I plugged this in to that USB connector and can see these maps on that 8" screen.

With Garmin, insisted on taking my GPS to Italy, definitely need GPS for there, no road signs, and have to zig zag through towns and could get lost in a hurry, told me exactly where to turn on those two foot wide streets. That cost me 24 bucks for a micro SD card with Italy, Greece, and Switzerland on it.

Also had points of interest on it in English, was have problems with my Hertz rental, showed me to the nearest one, and directed me directly to their door. Was definitely worth 24 bucks.

Coming back to the US, google didn't work, Garmin did, showed me the heading, altitude, and the ground speed, SW, 33,000 feet, 545 mph.

So what's with factory GPS? Dey all do dis, Kids, Chrysler, 200 bucks for a CD, Hyundai doesn't have internal memory, at the center of the radio, that wide tab can be carefully removed where you will find a 16GB SD card with the map on there, with 12GB of data on it. Just unplug that and plug that in. Can save 50 bucks if you just get the firmware and use you own SD card, but make darn sure the power is off. With the card removed, you get no GPS.

My dealer can mail me the card to save an 80 mile trip.

Still confused on this issue as to what do I have. SD card says STD4.X Elantra 96554-R2100.

System Info shows Map Ver. NAM.OB47.44.552.004.1

Does have an Update under all this, when I press that, says to check my memory, but that is all it does. Do have it connected to my WiFi.

Some of this info is incorrect ...

Definitely sounds like a dealer thing and not a Hyundai thing - good for you, though !!!

More confirmation that it is a dealer thing.

Errrm - no. I like Garmin, but ... forums.gpsreview.net/discussion/17527/when-is-the-next-garmin-map-update-latest-map-version - They used to offer 4 updates per year, lately they have been doing 3 updates per year. You might have gotten monthly updates to FM traffic or firmware or voices (and sometimes they say it is updating when the new files are the same as the old ones), but you got at most 20 map updates for approximately $4000.

Also - it wasn't a bad deal, but you can usually find refurbished Garmins with lifetime maps for $100 now - last years 5-inch model with voice activation, etc.

Google maps doesn't really update - well, it does, but it doesn't download an update, the maps are updated on the server, but if you don't have a data connection, you don't have maps.

Referring to a mobile phone, every time I open this thing, updating software including google maps. But yes, worthless without data, and even out of cell phone range that is typical where we like to camp. But good on most state and interstate highways. Still old fashion, have a stack of maps in my glove compartment.

Ha, lots of times switch it off, don't want to be reminded that its six hours to the next turn off. But POI's are nice, wife had to go, found a gas station only 3.2 miles ahead, asked her if she wanted to go in the weeds or should we try to make it another 3.0 miles. Elected for the latter.

Way to go tiger. Love those mad a$$ ninja like skills. Asking like that doesn't give the opposition a choice to deny. >>>you're too sneaky<<< (thanks for the smile)

I like this approach.

I did the same thing up here in Canada. They said they'd look into it. Bottom line, they are updating it next week. You won't get anything if you don't ask!
