    The Nav System in the VT

    in my opinion, it's been the worst part of my VT so far. i love the actual system in the dash, but as far as the actual directions the nav gives, its horrible. i've tried a couple different settings, shortest, quickest..etc... but its still bad. it will EVENTUALLY get me to where im going, but usually in the worst way possible.

    anyone else had any issues with it? i did a quick search on here and didn't find much.. but i can't be the only one. any suggestions on how to get it working better?

    thanks!

    Yep, it's almost like its gotten progressively dummer on me. The other day it was telling me to go to my house by hopping off the freeway 3 exits too early. would have added like 10 min extra to my drive. It's a minor annoyance day to day driving, but at times when I actually need it, I can't really count on it. My Garmin I have in my Mazda CX7 is waaaay better.

    Just wait, the NAV gets dumber when you don't pay for the data service.

    Apparently a fair amount of the data comes from the service. When I zoom in and out it does not show the local streets or their names anymore.

    If I type in "Target" it does not sort the results by the closest one. And voice NAV is no longer available.

    The stock NAV is only good for basic navigation when I am out of range of cell towers.

    If Hyundai comes out with a NAV software upgrade that brings it up to the Bing standard I would be willing to pay maybe $5 a month.

    Well that's is the dumbest thing I ever heard. I have a Dodge Nitro I plan on selling it to get the VT, but knowing about the nav now forget it. I never paid anything for service for my Nitro and It's been rated one of the best nav's out there. One thing I love and would never live without is the nav. I've also never had to pay anything when using my navigation, maybe it's a hard drive, but thats ok by me.It always takes where I want to go and the map is perfect for telling where the streets are. That's just very disappointing. You should not have to pay for any type of service for the nav! We pay enough for the cars we buy.

    OK first of all Raptor08, your Turbo is GORGEOUS! Who cares how the Nav works?! I jest of course. Seriously though, I already responded to my Hyundai Owner Survey about my disappointment with the Nav System. It's pretty, but dumb (insert Jessica Simpson joke here). Luckily I don't depend on Nav so it's not a huge issue for me but yes, paying extra seems to be the only way to get the best of any data-based service these days...cable, cell, SiriusXM...

    On the other hand, the NAV is the least important thing about my VT. I didn't buy the VT with the MT so I could be looking at the dash all the time.

    The problem with all NAVs is that they aren't Google Maps. Once you get used to Google Maps nothing else can compare. The VT NAV is as equally bad as Garmin, Ford's MyTouch and every other car's stock NAV.

    If NAV is the defining factor of which car you buy then the VT is probably not for you.

    When I'm in a strange town and/or out of cell range the VT's NAV does the trick. Other than that I rely on Google Maps on my Android. And that works for me.
