2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Go To Recent Destination? Thanks, But I'd Rather Not
September 24, 2013
I've found our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe shockingly enjoyable to drive. On the whole, I think it drives better than any other car in the Hyundai lineup. But I was annoyed by the navigation system, which prompted me to let it direct us to one of our last four destinations (including one redacted location) at every startup.
I can see how this would be a handy feature on a long road trip, where you're likely to be using the nav system's guidance almost constantly. But around greater Los Angeles, the prompt, which supersedes whatever other interaction you may be having with the touchscreen (save for the rear-view camera display) for about 5 seconds, it's a bit excessive.
Fortunately, my better half had the presence of mind to look for a way to turn this feature off.
Turns out this feature is a setting that you can find by hitting the Setup button below the main screen and then choosing navigation. You'll then need to scroll down within the Main navigation menu using the down-arrow button and then click "Off" for "Display Previous Destinations upon Startup." Undoubtedly, a little RTM would have led me down a similar path.
