When I first got my VT the delay in the stereo startup was not a pleasant surprise, but I got used to it.

After using more than the stereo functions the startup delay got worse. The worst part for me is the delay in showing the rearview camera and then the delay in showing the grid and the object detection function.

I figured out that 2 things were causing the additional delay, the NAV Map application and having a USB thumb drive plugged in to the lower dash USB socket. When the unit starts up you can see the thumb drive being accessed for several seconds and the NAV Map application also takes several seconds before the "Agree" button is available.

Now I don't leave the thumb drive plugged in unless I'm using it and before I turn the VT off I select the FM/AM button if the NAV Map is running. This eliminates the new delay and gets it back to the stock delay. The rear view camera now starts working without having to sit and wait for several seconds.

I found that when I plug in my ipod prior to starting the car, I do not get the "Agree" prompt and it brings up the ipod quickly and starts playing, although I do see the "Agree" prompt when I unplug the ipod before shutting off the car. I also have not noticed a delay getting the camera to come online when doing this. Perhaps this is perception only. I have seen delay with the detection/distance grid showing up periodically but not a regular thing when I am getting ready to drive.

Unfortunately what we have is basically a "mobile" PC with limited resources. Anything plugged in (including bluetooth), or the nav (if running when last shutdown) has to be accessed at startup in order to be "ready" for when you actually want to utilize that item. Kind of like a javascript pre-loader for my coders (but yall will understand this concept without having to read this), or for everyone else, its how you have to plug in a toaster before you can toast your bread.
At any rate, the more you have going on, the longer you'll have to wait at startup. The back-up cam is actually two things at once: the camera feed & the grid overlay.

OP has discovered the best thing to do...

Hopefully there will be a lot of support for "user customizable skins/mods" that allow me to change startup/shutdown/screen configs/etc kind of like any other customizable GUI in the world. Shoot, maybe even Hyundai will release something; it would seem to fit the majority of the market for this vehicle.

We learned in one of my previous threads that it runs WinCE.

Somewhere inside Hyundai there is a boot disk for the dash system and probably an SDK that covers its unique APIs.

If I got hold of the SDK and the source code I would immediately change a few things. When a call from a list is selected I would have it call that number and not show a second screen with useless details and a tiny Send button. When you select cancel route I would drop the "Are you sure?" prompt. Of course I would drop the NAV "Agree" function - that thing is dangerous.

If I had some more time with it I would change the dialer app to have much larger number buttons and show the last calls on the first screen. I would integrate the up and down buttons on the steering wheel to scroll through the call list. The music/Ipod/USB app would get a quick makeover too. The back, menu and list thing isn't working for me and there is a lot of dead space on the screen. I'd make root dir, artist and album persistent on the play screen. I'd also map the steering wheel up and down buttons to the seek/track buttons.

I found that if you just hit the unlock button on your car, then get in, it already starts loading the headunit. Same holds true if you open any of the doors. My Genesis Coupe was the same way. I tend to open the boot first and put my bag in there for work, and by the time I sit and start the car everything is nearly loaded :) However there is a drawback to this and that is bluetooth. Sometimes when my car is in the garage and I grabbed something out of it and went back inside, the bluetooth will connect. If a call comes in, its in the car!! Yes after a 30-45 seconds it will disconnect, but I have had this happen before.

I am going to be trying that tomorrow!

In the meantime I've been going back to my car guy roots. The car guys that I grew up with always backed in to spaces because that's how guys that know how to drive do it, it shows off your car and it is nice to be able to get in your car and not have to back out blindly past SUVs.

This way the back-up system is always available and I get the greatest use of it. It really works well and I can quickly back in to a spot perfectly using only the back-up system.
