Essentially, once an owner registers on with their name, e-mail, address, zip code and VIN, they can download the Android Auto software and transfer the contents to a USB drive. Once that same USB drive is plugged into the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, they can browse to the update option on the system menu to begin the install of Android Auto.

“This is the first time we’ve made a software upgrade available using the MyHyundai portal,” said Michael Deitz, senior group manager of Connected Care, Hyundai Motor America. “Sonata owners can add more value with Android Auto in an easy-to-do upgrade that takes less than an hour.
