You get 3 years of Blue Link for free when you buy a new Hyundai. One of the Blue Link packages is the Guidance package, which grants you free map updates. So map updates are free for the first 3 years. After that, you can either continue to subscribe to Blue Link by paying monthly, yearly, or for 2 or 3 years at once (which works out cheaper than monthly), or you buy the map updates stand-alone. They come out twice a year and cost $145. By comparison, a Blue Link subscription to the Guidance package (which also requires the Connected Care package, but not the Remote package) is $20/month ($10 for each package). Cheaper if you pay yearly or for longer at once, as mentioned above. At $20/month, that works out to $240/y, which is cheaper than buying 2 standalone map updates per year. So if you care about map updates because you use the built-in nav often, then I suggest getting a Blue Link subscription after the first 3 years of complimentary service.How does this typically work? Do you have to pay for an update at the dealership or can you self install or do over-the-air updates?
I read that as: If you don't want to download this and put it on your own flash drive, we'll sell you one with it already on it for $25I read this as: no download will be provided for v14. You must buy it on a USB flash drive for $25 + shipping (which is cheap enough, I suppose).
That's what they normally do. It's curious that they point out this way this time. They've never done that before that I know of. Also, the regular price is normally $145. There's something different about this update, whatever that is.I read that as: If you don't want to download this and put it on your own flash drive, we'll sell you one with it already on it for $25
I have no idea. Let's see what happens on the 20th.Ok, so we can't download this update but we can buy it? Since we all have the 3 yr free updates, does this mean we have to wait for hyundai to get their other site up and running to download our free update?
Yep, same here. V14 is now showing, but it can only be shipped for $25. And the link to the new features is currently a broken link. Let's hope they fix it tomorrow.They just updated the site today and it doesn't show a way for me to download the map 14 version now, only shows the purchase usb.
I'll wait till july for the download.
This is an awesome update. Especially the AA split screen! Thanks!BIIIIIIG NEWS, the list of features is now out and it's a huge update: https://storage.googleapis.com/mapc...14.0/pdf/Hyundai_V14_New_Map_Features_U5W.pdf
Page 2 to 15 are the updates for this new version. Later pages are updates that were in the previous version.
Of particular note: split-screen with Android Auto and Car Play. This will make a lot of people happy. I also see weather via connected services, which should solve the complaints resulting from only relying on HD radio for weather. Also, cover art on media screen and ability to show guidance at the top of the screen while viewing other screens
Other changes (besides map data):
- Route now computed in the cloud (if connected services active)
- New map display and easy to add POI display on map
- Current speed shown on screen
- Added list of world's top 1,000 best restaurants
- Ability to show guidance at the top of the screen while viewing other screens
- Search by distance, name or best match
- When stopped for more than 15s, the route overview comes on
- When searching for electric vehicle charging stations, brand icons are shown, as well as AC or DC (before anyone asks, this update is for PHEV and EV Hyundai models too, not just the Palisade, so this is why that is a documented feature)
- Search for gas station by price (if connected services active)
- New map color themes
- Notification pop-up if map data older than 2 years
- Weather info (if connected services active)
- Alert upcoming red light cameras & alert upcoming speed cameras w/ speed limit (if connected services active)
- Better media playback
- Cover art on advanced GUI on media screen
- Custom select multi-selection playback (album/artist)
- Sound of Nature (I know the 2020 Sonata already has that)
- Split screen with CarPlay or AA
See my post above regarding my correspondence with Hyundai. The download won't be available until July (and at the rate they're going, it'll probably be pushed out even longer than that.) The update was originally supposed to be available at the beginning of April, then on April 14, then on April 20. Now, you can only get the paid USB on April 27 (we'll see if that even happens).At this point, I'd wait until the 27th to see if the file is available for download from the website. It's unclear if they're going to make it available for download or not.
Gotcha. Too many different threads on the different forums about this, so I missed your post.See my post above regarding my correspondence with Hyundai.

More to the point, it’s puzzling. It’s a lot easier to put a file on a server than it is mailing USB drives. Considering what the world is going through right now, I would have expected the opposite: download only and no USB option.Gotcha.
