Hyundai is making it even easier to get Android Auto on your compatible vehicle by posting the necessary files online for you to download. That’s right, if you own one of the vehicles on the list, you can now download the update from Hyundai, put it on your car’s SD card and install it yourself. Previously, you had to take your vehicle to the dealer, which could have resulted in some extra fees as well.

From the company’s announcement the following models are eligible for the at home upgrade:

2015 Sonata with Navigation
2016 Sonata with the seven-inch touchscreen display and eight-inch Navigation
2015 Genesis with the eight-inch touchscreen Navigation system with rearview camera
2016 Genesis with the eight-inch touchscreen Navigation system with rearview camera
2016 Elantra GT with Navigation
2016 Tucson with Navigation
2017 Santa Fe with the seven-inch touchscreen display and eight-inch Navigation
2017 Santa Fe Sport with the seven-inch touchscreen display and eight-inch Navigation

The update is pretty easy to do but it can take some time. From start to finish, on a strong internet connection, you are looking at anywhere from 45 minutes to nearly 4 hours for the complete process.
