How to Upgrade Your Hyundai Navigation System

Hyundai navigation open on dashboard inside 2019 Hyundai Tucson

The navigation system in your Hyundai Elantra, Tucson, or Santa Fe can not only pinpoint your exact location in the CNMI, but also guide you to your desired destination. To always have access to the most current and accurate information, it is recommended that you periodically update the Hyundai Navigation System. So how do you upgrade your Hyundai Navigation? There are three options for you to choose from:

Option 1: Visit the Service Center at Triple J Saipan

The next time you bring your Hyundai in for its scheduled maintenance, ask our certified service techs to update the navigation system for you. This is the easiest and most convenient way to upgrade the system. Just schedule a service appointment and let our team know that you’d like to update the map data and we’ll take care of it.

Option 2: Purchase a New SD Card

If your Hyundai model stores its navigation information in an SD card, you can order a new updated SD card and install it yourself. To order a replacement SD card:

  1. Go to and create an account if you do not already have one.
  2. Select the model and year of your Hyundai and click “Log In”.
  3. In the right column select “Order new SD card through mail (shipping costs apply)”, the click “ADD TO CART”.
  4. On the Shopping Cart page, enter your address, then click “Get a Quote”. The tax based upon your location will be calculated and added to the purchase price. Then click “PROCEED TO CHECKOUT”.
  5. Enter your account information and confirm that the billing, shipping, and payment information is correct.
  6. When the SD card arrives in the mail, remove the current SD card and exchange it for the new one. Check your owner’s manual to find the location of your SD card slot.

Option 3: Download and Install

To download and install the map update yourself, you’ll need access to the vehicle, the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), an internet connection, and a Windows PC with at least 20 GB of space. Smartphones and iOS systems are not compatible for downloading the Hyundai map update. Follow these steps to download and install:

  1. Go to and create an account if you do not already have one.
  2. Select the model and year of your Hyundai and click “Log In”.
  3. In the right column click the selection beginning with “Download map software…”.
  4. Download the Hyundai Map Software Manual pdf to get the download instructions specific to your Hyundai model and year. Save to an adjacent tab.
  5. Click “ADD TO CART”.
  6. On the Shopping Cart page add your delivery information. Click “Get a Quote”. Once the tax has been added, click on “PROCEED TO CHECKOUT”.
  7. Enter your account information, confirm your order, and click on “DOWNLOAD”
  8. Follow the directions on the Download Map Software Manual pdf.
