I recently purchased a 2012 Limited Turbo with Nav and when I plug my iphone 4 into into the USB jack I am told there is a media connection errror. I can get it paired up via Blutooth to stream music, but I'm curious why the stereo will not recoginize my iphone. I also plugged in a 5th Gen Ipod and get same message. I read somewhere about a Hyundai ipod cable, but did not think anything of it. Is the hyundai cable some type of proprietary cable or something? Any help will be much appreciated!

PS. LOVE, LOVE the car!

The Hyundai iPod cable uses both the USB and the Aux jack. The USB is for control and track info, and the aux is for sound.

I'm running rockbox on my ipod classic and when I plug mine into USB only with the standard iPod cable, it reads it as an external hard disk. That would be fine if it didn't have to scan 35+ gigs of music before I could move through the directories. The iPod cable actually allows playback from the device with steering wheel controls.

Well worth it in my opinion.

It looks like this:

The cable is indeed proprietary. However, before you go shelling out $30 for the cable, I would highly recommend shelling out an additional $23 for this:



There are cheaper flash drives out there, but I find this one to be one of the best. It's small, black and the indicator light is very subtle and not distracting. Capacity is up to you. They also offer a 16G version for $29 (same price as the cable).

I find a USB thumb drive to be MUCH better than the IPod. For starters, you don't have to worry about leaving your IPod in the car or unplugging it every time you leave the car. I like being able to load almost all of my music onto the flash drive, plugging it in and forgetting about it. It's always there and hardly visible. I have NAV in my sonata and the interface for navigating the USB drive is very nice. If you lay out your folders properly, it's a piece of cake to navigate through your music.

My IPod cable is still in it's original box. I have no plans of using it unless my USB flash drive is damaged or stolen. I highly recommend going the USB route, you won't be sorry. Just my $0.02.

Fyi...my ipod sounded like junk with the standard usb cable using it like a thumb drive
once I used the Hyundai ipod cable which I would think you might be able to find cheaper on ebay it made a difference like night and day
Not only do you gain control of the ipod (ie your playlists) but the sound is WAY better

I got an iPod cable from Amazon, but now I rarely use it. I got a 32GB Centon flash drive for about $30, and the thing I like best about it is that the indicator light glows the same blue that most of my control panel glows. Pretty hip. I will say that the Random function as controlled by the Hyundai system is pretty wack as compared to iPod's shuffle. I can tell you the first four songs that will always play when I select random with the flash drive. But it's a better deal because you don't have to go through the hassle of connecting/disconnecting the iPod/iPhone, and reconnecting when the bluetooth causes your iPhone to stop playing music.

Looks like they made a change on the 2012 models. I just got my 2012 2.0T Limited yesterday and I picked up the I-pod cable before leaving the dealership. When I tried to use it later all the sound system would only recognize my I-pod as AUX and there was no display. I tried my regular I-pod cable and everything works fine - it recognized my I-pod and gives me full display and control of the unit. I'm taking the "Hyundai" cable back to the dealership tomorrow.
ps: I love my 2.0T!!!

Hyundai made a change for the 2012 Sonata, apparently discontinuing the need for the proprietary cable (emphasis added):

"For the 2012 model year Sonata base radio, the [b]white cable provided with the iPod/iPhone device should be used to ensure full iPod features and functions in the audio system. If the previous black iPod cable is used, the audio screen will display Aux Connected and all iPod functions will be required to be controlled from the iPod or iPhone unit."

Since the TSB mentions the base (non-Nav) radio specifically, the Nav unit might still require the proprietary cable (it's not clear from the bulletin).

I have the Nav and I have tried connecting my iPod(classic) using just the white iPod cable and it will not 'recognize' the device. I must use the Hyundai cable in order to use my iPod. I have a 2012 2.0T as well. Built in late July.

Couple things... whether you use flash drives or iPods, UNPLUG THEM when you START or STOP the car. Buried in the manual is the same warning. A voltage spike can occur in the electrical system when ignition is started or stopped which can zap anything plugged into the USB port.

I ignored this as one of those warnings to cover their butts just-in-case. 2 weeks later I have a dead 80gb iPod classic.


On a side note for cars requiring the special iPod cable, when you connect using the regular data cable it will read your iPod as a USB thumb drive or external hard drive and performs MP3 playback inside the system. (at least it did mine) This means it has to read all the files before it lets you select a folder from which to playback. With mine I had 35 gigs of music so it took about a minute before I could play anything. For me the cable was well worth it.

Now I just have to get a new player....

That's why I swear by the thumb drive. I never worry about removing it. If it gets fried, I'll just buy a new one and it doesn't lay on the seat screaming "steal me".
