@Ian51 Is there any chance you could copy the files from your i40 SD card and send them to me? I am a software developer myself, and have been digging around some developer forums. I think if I can get a copy from someone who has the update, I might be able to install the update myself.

Edit: I don't need the full contents, only the /update folder should be required.

I'll take a look at the SD card tomorrow and see what the contents are for you - however it shouldn't be necessary for you to do this as the dealer should be able to obtain the updates for you. Later ..

#Finbarr - There is no /update folder anywhere on the SD card and I have viewed it with hidden/system files showing. I attach image showing root but I have explored every sub directory on the SD card. I'll also advise that the Apple Carplay is not installed from the Sat Nav software SD card as the only things on the card are Navigation related.

As you are a software engineer it would be great if you could write software that could clone these cards successfully so a backup could be produced. Every attempt, with lots of cloning software, has failed for me every time - if memory serves me correctly they all produce an image or clone that is 1k larger than the SD card ..... or it might be smaller!

Interesting. Thanks @Ian51 for checking that for me. Ok, so I guess the software update occurs by using a USB key in the USB slot of the car. I see there is a direct download of the installers for US based cars here. I might see if I can figure something out from that.

Ok so eventually I figured this out. 

I know Ian you were saying the software update is free at the local dealer, but the local Hyundai dealer here in the Irish republic doesn’t think so was looking for €100 for “labour” costs. So I looked to get the update files online and found them on another forum. 

Instructions on how to download and update to get Apple Carplay version (EUR) are here:

https://www.drive2.ru/l/492401715044155399

Download Update Folder: https://yadi.sk/d/2P-O8kHN3RNyd5 and put on a USB drive (FAT32) and in car with car engine on. 

Go to system…update, etc.

During the upgrade you might get an error (109). At this point use a ballpoint pen to press the reset button at the side of CD insertion. You need to remove the flash drive otherwise the error will appear in a cyclic form. After the restart, the update continued and was successfully completed. (No need to re-insert the USB key after the reset)  

 

This firmware turns off the verification of SD memory cards with navigation to match the original one. Now files with navigation can be put on any SD card. 

Maps

Latest Maps can be downloaded here: https://cloud.mail.ru/public/8Thp/suDqMNSsF/

Do the software upgrade at your own risk, yada yada yada.

Finbarr - Well done if you've tested these files and its worked for you. I'll give it a miss though thanks - I get it done free under the warranty cover of Hyundai!

Shame we can't copy the SD card somehow but I guess that's the point of Secure Digital with its locked content.

Thanks for your efforts non the less and enjoy the added connectivity.

Best regards.

Hey Ian, Yep I totally understand. I would also have went with the Hyundai method if it weren't for the rip-off republic being in effect :huh:.

The update I installed last night removes the need to use an SD which came with the car, which is a nice added benefit.

I recorded the update as I did it and posted the video on youtube for anyone else who is wondering how it is done.

Thanks for your help with all of this. It was this thread that got me thinking it was at all possible in the first place, and for that I am grateful.

Regards

Finbarr

Nice one Finbarr ! Passed this info to a multi national FaceBook i40 group as it might help someone in a similar position. Hoping that's okay? Cheers.

Absolutely! Spread the word. Have you got a link to that group? I’m not on Facepalm myself but can have a look.

HELP! I own a 2016 i40 se business and want to upgrade my stereo to include the latest sat nav updates and also Apple CarPlay. My local dealer in Lincoln have categorically said this is not possible and Hyundai UK are mistaken and there is no such upgrade available 

Yet there are members of this forum who have had it carried out, can anyone shed any light on this

Many Thanks

Your dealer is not telling you the truth! Find another one?

Is anyone having problems with songs playing through Carplay not being very loud??
I cannot seem to find a way to turn it up, even though the iPhone seems maxed out?

Did you get a new firmware update as well as maps Ian? If so, could you share a screenshot of your software versions?
