    Question Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

    Members don't see this ad
    Anyone know if the 2015-2016 Genesis sedan with the 9.2" infotainment screen is ever going to get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto? Since it comes standard on all G80s, even with the 9.2" screen, seems like it should be made available on the 2015-2016 model years. Still unbelievable to me that Hyundai released it for the lower trim levels of the Genesis (yes I know they share a common screen with lower-end Hyundais), but kept it away from those of us who paid more.

    There are many threads on this subject. It will not be available until the 2018 model year for the 17-speaker Lexicon system, due to technical issues.

    Note that the Genesis website now features the 2018 G80 (not just the Sport trim model).

    Would a hardware upgrade be needed on the 2015-2016 9.2" set-up? It was my understanding that it didn't have the necessary equipment, but the 8" did.

    I am not sure we know for certain. But we do know that Hyundai is not going to retroactively provide it on 2015-2016 (and also 2017 G80). The 2018 G80 has it.

    The 8" AVN Systems are up-gradable from 2015 onward.
    The 9" DIS (Scroll wheel) systems are NOT and will not be up-gradable for 2015-2017 model years.
    2018 DIS systems DO have the necessary platform hardware changes to accommodate the feature, which is standard now for all 2018 Genesis Models - regardless of AVN vs. DIS system.

    Thanks for that info.

    Here's a bonus question:

    Would the 2015-2017 models gain Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability if the radio was exchanged for the one added to the 2018 Genesis Models?

    Is the 2018 hardware even compatible with the previous years? I'll look online to see if I can find anything...

    Did anyone find out if the unit can be exchanged for one that has the Apple CarPlay?
