Fortunately, before I updated…. I read that recent update(s) have removed the ability to assign/change the order of radio presets. Instead, radio presets are now automatically sorted by the channel number. Is this true, and if so, will the custom order assignment of radio presets (which has been around since mechanical push-button radios) be returning in a new update? Lastly, if this functionality already exists in the latest update, could someone please respond with a “how to”… because there appears to be a lot of unhappy people on other forums that would be very eager to have this information. Thanks!

Hello, thank you for your post. You are correct that the ability to set a custom order for the radio presets was removed with the latest updates, and that the order is now sorted automatically. Unfortunately this is a change by the manufacturer, and we do not have control over this function. At this time, we do not have any information on whether the functionality will be restored to previous specifications or not, however we continue to strive the most up to date information as possible. Please contact us prior to attempting a future update to see if we have any information on changes that have been made.

HEAD UNIT UPDATE CAUTION. Here is a huge warning about updating the head unit's software. As the owner of a 2020 Kona Ultimate, which came from the factory with a terrific radio interface (nearly the best I've seen to date on a head unit), you will lose the well-designed graphics and functionality if you, like me, upgrade the unit using a 2021 "navigation" update. Believing the update I downloaded was going to simply update the maps; instead the update severally compromised the radio's user experience and greatly reduced functionality. Gone is the ability to: 1) select presets using Sirius XM station names (now there is just a small postage size stamp shown along the bottom of the screen with the station number), 2) custom order the presets, and among other items, 3) easily view the tuned station's logo, artist and song in large, easy-to read graphics. The only item of size (read legibility) on the downdated display is three large "vacuum tube" renderings showing the station number. There is no way to revert back to the previous interface other than to replace the head unit – or to purchase a separate Sirius tuner and plug this into the dash. I've spent the afternoon calling various Hyundai customer support numbers and the only recommendation one of the support technicians could offer, is to log a post to this site. I hope this is heard and fixed in the upcoming April update. Hyundai can, and has been proven to be able to do so much better than this.
