Okay, we know the Tucson's don't have a CD player any longer, so...I reached out to a guy in another state who will make me a flash drive with my favorite music on it. Question, does anyone know if it will play using the USB drive? What I've found is that you plug it in, and click 'media' and select tunes on the flash drive from there, correct?

Yes but with respect to the USB ports in this car, I'm annoyed about 2 things: :mad:
  1. Why are all the charging ports only USB-A, not USB-C supporting Power Delivery ... really Hyundai, in a car that's supposed to represent the epitome of Technology?!!
  2. Why ONLY a single port that supports data, even in the top trim?!! If I connect my phone for projection (AA or ACP), I can no longer play music from a USB stick. Other cars I've had including a 2008 Infiniti EX35 and my current 2016 BMW 340i have a built-in drive where I can store my music ... I'm not even asking for that, just for the other front USB port to support data!!!
OK, rant over! :LOL: :ROFLMAO:

Is this just me? 🤷‍♂️

Yes, I have the same concern with you! Thought I can live without a USB-C port as I love all the rest of it, but really, for a top-trim car, only 1 USB port for data???! btw, that makes it even dizzy to have a wireless charger w/o wireless AA, AP .... 😂

There are dongles available from Carsifi, Motorola, etc. that enable wireless AA on the top level trim models. Of course they occupy the one and only data port.

Yes, the drive just needs to be formatted as FAT32. I don't believe that NTFS can be read. I have not tried any FLAC files, but i doubt they will play.
Not sure where you're getting your information my friend, but the manual for my 10" Infotainment systems says on page 10-14, that NTFS is supported (along with FAT16 and exFAT) ... possibly, the 8" head unit is different:

As for audio formats played, the previous page (10-13) shows FLAC is supported (within the specified bit rate & sampling freq) ...

As stated, my ONE key beef is the provision of just ONE SINGLE data-capable USB port!

It's the one on the left. How big is your flash drive? Maybe too big or formatted incorrectly?

The port to be used is the left-hand one below the centre stack, marked data.

You might want to ensure the format of the USB stick in use and the files therein, comply with the compatibility info I posted previously.

Thanks Alan,......it is a 32GB drive,...also, tried my 8GB drive,...neither would play. They had no issues playing in my Sportage though! Just thought it would be the same type of reading system,....guess I was wrong!?

I've just tried a multiport USB device. The car only sees the first flash drive in the system. I had two flash drives and my phone plugged in - it ignored the others.

So, don't waste your money.

It should work. Maybe there's an issue with your car.

So,...what you're saying here, is,....only can read one port at at time? Plug in just one item,...see if it registers?
