Sometimes the voice commands do not find the right local I need. When trying to type a direction the car does not allow me to do this while operating. Is there any way to bypass this feature so that I can type in a direction while driving? BTW it's a hybrid limited model. Thank you!

I don't use car own navigation system but use Android Auto with Google maps. And while Google maps also does not allow to enter destination manually (while driving), it can find anything that EXISTS by using "Hey Google" command and saying where you would like to go.

There is a very good reason why you can not enter nav details while driving- because you shouldn't even try! That is no different than texting while driving and we all know the results that can come from that.

Can navigation instructions be entered via the phone app while the vehicle is in motion? That would allow a passenger to safely enter a destination.
As I stated above, if phone is connected and is in Android Auto mode ( I have Android phone but I think that such rule would apply to iPhone/CarPlay as well) - then it would not allow entering any directions manually ( phone has no idea if it is a driver or a passenger entering text), unless phone is unplugged (if it is wired Android Auto) or disconnected from the wireless Android Auto connection - then, of course, it would allow to enter any text. After that, passenger can reconnect phone back and re-establish Android Auto. From my point of view, it is "too much to deal with" - much simpler to say "Hey, Google - take me to or find me that..."

Guessing this is a newer change? - our Kia Soul and Subaru allow inputting the keyboard. Both a few years older. (That's with built in navigation)

Note: the issue is “Sometimes the voice commands do not find the right local I need.”

We’re talking about the built in navigation and passenger access while moving.

I don't use (deactivated right away) Bluelink service but I guess ( could be wrong) that Hyundai car voice commands require Bluelink service/network connection.
And if my guess is correct, than there is quite a probability that due to network issue ( coverage, low bandwidth, etc.) voice commands would fail in some cases.

This is a "tricky" one. How car system would know that it is a passenger and not the driver who attempts to use navigation screen?
If, for example, manufacturer will "invent" an additional button on the steering wheel that, let's say, would be marked as "Passenger access allowed":unsure: - what are the chances that driver would not use it for him/her self?
Of course, manufacturer can link passenger seat airbag sensor to navigation control but what about when it is not a passenger in the seat but a heavy bag?
Next step - add cameras in each corner of the cabin - just in case if rear seat passenger also want to do some adjustments to the navigation screen - then camera AI will "allow" such move.
It is all doable - no doubts...at some point in the future we, most likely, would be riding in driverless cars and at that point - we will be allowed to do whatever we want...would we?
