    I replaced the stock stereo with a Pioneer unit, but it doesn't work
    with the steering wheel controls. Crutchfield sells a PAC interface,
    but it's only compatible with an '06 Sonata. Has anyone successfully
    installed an interface to allow the steering wheel control to work in
    an '07?

  2. Given that the 06 and 07 are so nearly identical, I'd give it a try. When
    they said it was compatible with the 06, chances are the new model was not
    out yet.

    Can't answer your question, but I can tell that I HATE the steering wheel's
    radio controls. how come we can't change frequency with those controls???
    That's sounds ridiculous to me...

  4. I would not go so far as to say "hate", but it would be nice to have a
    "scan" button like my GM car.

    Well, hate is a big word... but... I just don't know why Hyundai did'nt add
    this feature to the steering radio control... why have steering radio
    controls if you just can't change the frequency? It is practical to have the
    volume and the "input" control... but there's something important missing!

    The 06 and 07 radios are identical unless you have the new one that JUST
    came out with XM.

    The PAC units work well and are fairly easy to install. The beauty about
    Crutchfield is that if you do have a problem, they'll help or take it back
    no questions asked.

    I thought the 06 and 07 would be indentical, but Crutchfield said it
    wasn't compatible with an 07, but try it any way and send it back if it
    didn't work. I got it all installed (the harness is exactily the same
    as in their '06 instructions). I got it installed, but it won't
    program. Has anyone done this successfully in an '07?
