New Hyundai Sonata is First Car to Feature Android Auto System

Last year, at Google I/O 2014, we first heard about a project called “Android Auto,” a system that allows your smartphone to run on your in-vehicle touchscreen in a perfectly compatible form. The system brings features like Google Maps, Google Now, Google voice search, and text-by-voice functionality to your vehicle. Plus, you’ll have tons of music and messaging apps literally right at your fingertips.

And we have exciting news here at SouthTowne Hyundai—the new Hyundai Sonata has been hand-picked as the first vehicle to receive this cool new system. The Android Auto system has been on the market since March, but Hyundai is now the first automaker to offer the system on one of their vehicles.

If you already have the “2015 Sonata with Navigation” model, just drop back by here at SouthTowne and we can hook you up with the software update you’ll need to install Android Auto on your car. You’ll also need to have Android 5.0 or higher to make sure the software is compatible both with your phone and with your Sonata.
