2015 Hyundai Sonata: Easy-to-Use Navigation System

May 7, 2015

2015 Hyundai Sonata

You would think most manufacturers would have the whole navigation thing down to a science by now. You would be wrong. Some are too clever for their own good while others use logic that isn't very logical. The setup in our 2015 Hyundai Sonata is one of the better systems I've used in a while.

It's easy to use, delivers clear directions and it helps that the screen itself is large, clear and easy to read. Inputting destinations is also dead simple thanks to a touchscreen interface and the ability to start with any piece of information you want. Some systems don't want to do anything until you put a street name in first.

I also like the way it splits the screen when a turn is coming up to show you a zoomed view on the right side while keeping a wide view on the left. That's not unique to this system, but this functionality makes it easier to follow than most. And even when you're not using it for turn-by-turn directions, the map is clear and the traffic flow indicators are easily decipherable. Can't say the same about BMW's system that shows way too much info in this regard.

I'm sure there are elements of this system that aren't perfect, but from my experience so far, it's a worthwhile addition to this family sedan.
