Let me know if you figure it out. Other than having it built in to the system I don't think you will find an elegant solution. By the way, the Hyundai(s) I am talking about are from at least 2 years ago so I don't blame you for assuming that it would be standard.

TBH, I think the best solution based on everything I've read is to put your music on USB and plug in your USB to the USB port. I tried this at the dealership and it worked great. I bought 2 really small looking 16GB USB drive and dragged half my music on one and half on the other (differentiated by gendre). You can then put in the USB and have it play random and it displays the songs.

So my solution will probably be bluetooth for calls, USB for music.

I hope that the navigation instructions on my Android will play via the bluetooth connection.
