Will let owners upgrade to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Hyundai owners looking to upgrade their infotainment system to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are in luck as the company has released a do-it-yourself installation program for an assortment of different models.

Available to download at MyHyundai.com, the upgrade is being offered for newer versions of the Elantra GT, Genesis, Santa Fe, Sonata, and Tucson.  Later on, the company will offer the upgrade for the Azera, Sonata Hybrid, Sonata Plug-In Hybrid, and Veloster.

In order to install the upgrade, owners will need to log into MyHyundai.com with their vehicle's VIN number.  They can then download the software update onto a USB memory stick or the SD card from their Navigation system.  Owners can then simply insert the USB stick or SD card into their vehicle and select the update option from their infotainment system.

The entire process can take up to four hours but owners of certain vehicles - such as the 2017 Santa Fe - can upgrade the infotainment system in as little as 35 minutes.

Drivers who want the update but don't want to do it themselves can get the software installed at their local Hyundai dealership beginning next month.  However, they will be charged an unspecified installation fee.
