Satnav map supplier.
« December 05, 2018, 03:21:39 »
I currently have a 2014 GD Elite or is it GD2, the elite didnít seem to have the model designation changed.

The Satnav has been a pain.

Can anybody advise if Hyundai have changed map suppliers for the current PD model range.

Iíd hate to purchase a new model and have the same issues.

Thanks

In what way has the Satnav been a pain? I know they're always a year or two behind in map updates compared to Garmin and TomTom, biggest change they made in the PD's concerning maps is free updates for ten years.

My PD is the first of our 4 x i30's to have a Sat nav so i can't compare. I have been pleasantly surprised with it considering built in Sat Navs in most brands are notoriously out of date due to the process between the map supplier doing the update getting it to the car maker then the car maker waiting until owner needs a service.. etc..

I sometimes use the built in satnav and sometimes the Google Maps via Android Auto.  Handy to have a choice. I also have Waze but haven't tried it yet.

It is a pain when it gets you lost , when itís supposedly up to date maps donít recognise roads that are years old. When it takes you to service stations that donít exist and never had existed.
It seems a shame that having purchased a more expensive model the function doesnít work properly.
Iím tempted to put my Navman in the car as well because it actually works.
I had heard that Hyundai have changed map suppliers got the PD but I canít confirm that yet.

I got a couple of bum steers by Google Maps on Kangaroo Island on a recent road trip so switched to the GPS and it got me across Melbourne from Geelong to Korumburra in Gippsland (avoiding tolls) on Melbourne cup day in torrential without any issues, so I was impressed. It also worked well when I used it to navigate around Adelaide.

So from my experience the combo of both Android Auto and GPS is pretty effective in the PD.
