I updated my 2022 Venue SEL with the September 2022 update. It took around 30 minutes. The instruction was to keep the engine running during the update but I just turned the ignition switch to ON without running the engine. It completed the update without a problem. There was not much that changed in this update.

There is good reason to keep the engine running. It's to ensure that the battery does not go dead during the update. If for some reason the infotainment system was to lose power while the flash rom is being written, the system would be bricked and become unusable.

Interesting. I've never thought to look for an update to the software on my 2022 limited..
Hyundai Canada usually sends an email when an update is available.
Here is link to the USA Update site.There is a drop down at the top to select other countries. Always be sure to select the proper software for your infotainment or navigation system. The last update for Gen2V systems was to deal with an Apple Car Play specific issue, there is nothing new for Android Auto in it.

I am pretty sure it does no go dead in 30+ minutes. I just don鈥檛 want to waste gas idling the engine during the update. It was freezing outside so I did it in the garage - can鈥檛 run my engine there.

I understand what you are saying. When your battery gets older it could well go dead in 30 minutes. I'm just passing on the reasoning behind the Hyundai warning to only do the update with the engine running. For me at least, it's not worth the risk of bricking the infotainment unit.

I think I have updated my software with and without the engine running.
It is a gamble. :ROFLMAO:

I believe you are only saving less than a few dollars by having the engine off during the update since you are not actually driving and flooring it.

I suppose that instead of running the engine to maintain the proper battery voltage you could hook up a battery charger to the car battery while doing the upgrade...is there any auto mechanics or Hyundai persons on this board that might not advising to do what I'm saying and is this not wise to do for any reason as to how a battery charger operates when using things like the entertainment unit while the charger is connected?

Unless updating my 2020 will give Android Auto Wireless functionality then i don't really see the point
I agree. I update my laptop and my Android phone on the regular, but they are interacting with the internet constantly and need to be up to date. My car is pretty much a stand-alone device, and installing an alleged "update" seems like a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Unless I'm really expecting some sort of enhanced functionality, which generally I am not.

I have a 2020 Venue (without navigation), and updating the software enabled wireless android auto.

Not sure if this applies to Canadan models, but I bet there's a good chance it does.

In that case I'll have to try again. The USB drive I used previously would not work so I gave up
When I did the upgrade it didn't work at first. I had to go into the engineering mode and choose the option to force the update. I posted about it at the time here:

Interesting..i haven't seen anything for WiFi in my car only Bluetooth.
Is there any way to identify if I even have a WiFi module before I mess with Engineering Mode?

"downloaded the update file to a flash drive, went to the update screen, and it offered to install it."

**when i did this it just started playing audio files from the update files i DL'd to the USB

Thanks for the link. I updated mine, and something I didn't see in the release notes, the reverse camera stays on after shifting into drive until I pass 5mph.

Hmm, I had to change a setting to get mine to do that.
