Hello All,

I shared this in the original Hyundai forum but, now here as i feel all should know. My only complaint for the Gt Sport is the Bluetooth audio quality. Since day one in March when i bought it, connected a Samsung S8 and/or Iphone 7 the module has had issues. No issues connecting any of the two phones. The issues begin when driving and trying to talk using the Bluetooth system.

Now, I have connected using Android Auto and Apple Car Play as well and the same issues.

Basics:

Firmware on both phones always up to date as i worked for 10 years for Rogers in Canada and i know firmware updates installed are always up to date on my phones.
Phone is either being charged by Qi (Samsung) or Wire (Iphone)

Was at he dealer once already , reported it, they tested it with no success to repeat issues...of course they did,


Scenario:

1. Someone calls me: hello, sorry i cannot hear the person says to me, Hello, then hangs up, Volume up all the way on the phone and car unit.....
2. Vice Versa I call someone else.....

my personal view is that I have a bad mic, that does not block background noise well or just malfunctioning....

Has anyone else experienced this issues....

So finally got tired of it and wrote a clear email to Pineview Hyundai, its President, Service Manager and my Original sales person.....Telling them that if he did not call me with a minute I would repeat his to Hyundai Canada.....He called within a minute of me sending it....he has stated they will order the entire Radio unit module (not a new mic, which i presume is in the headliner where the lights are)

hoping to have it replaced next week at some point and report on findings....stay tuned..

Greg

Wow, you threatened them and they caved in? Tough guy :)
Good to know they promptly responded. Now they have + in my book when I start price discussion with dealers.

Please keep us posted. I don't do a lot of phone talking in the car and have only had calls in the car twice. The first time, the car was parked and I made the call, while connected to carplay. The person on the other end complained that they couldn't hear me well. The second time, I had someone call me while driving and there was no complaint from them. I assumed that the issue with the first call was on the receiving end, not on mine. Will try to make more calls and see if there are any issues.

Gents, Pineview service manager called me back the replacement head unit is now in and due to be replaced next Friday June 29th, i will advise if it fixes the issues or the mic next. I use cold stone logic to get these dealer idiots to do what they know they must but filing a warranty claim for a dealer is a money loss so they always argue
