I have owned 10 brand new Hyundai's and every one has has a faulty Sat Nav. I now own the new Tucson Ultimate hybrid and the Sat Nav is diabolical, if you put in Postcodes it can come up with 50 different streets, there is nowhere to enter the number of the house that you want. I drive on the Continent a lot and you cannot change to county that you want.
I've never had any problems with anything else, they are reliable car's with plenty of safety kit, but Hyundai PLEASE PLEASE do something about the Sat Navs in your vehicles.

I am having the same problems ! Finally got my new Ultimate Hybrid 2 weeks ago and love it except the rubbish Sat Nav ! Like you , enter a postcode and it comes up with everywhere except the place you actually want . I am on holiday in Cornwall and giving the car a good test but the Sat Nav is next to useless .
You could buy a cheap Tom Tom device and it would work 100% better !
My previous Tuscon had Sat Nav problems but this is so much worse . The sales rep who sold me the new Tuscon told me the Nav is brilliant and the best he has ever used . He did not tell the truth ! Feeling very disappointed right now !

Not a criticism, but I do wonder if you're using the sat nav correctly. Whilst it's not infallible or glitch free, it's much better than the one I had in a 2015 Santa Fe.
I've just spent a month in France and it never once failed to take me to a destination.
All the places I was aware I'd be going to, I inputted before I left the UK. There was no need to tell it which country I was going to, I just entered an address and it knew the location.
It often mistook bends for turnings, but I've had other sat navs do that. My main gripe was that it would tell me which turning to take off a roundabout as I was actually leaving the roundabout, but watching the icons above the map overcame that.
I've had problems with sat navs finding isolated gites in France before, but this one took me right to the doorstep of the remote gite we stayed in.

I have to agree with old man-especially about the delay in being told to exit a roundabout, but with the illustration on the icon I knew which exit to take before entering the roundabout.
There is a hotel in Portugal which I stayed in whenever I drove down there which my previous Renault refused to acknowledge its existence, only the street that it was on. The Hyundai found it straight away.
I think all factory fitted Sat Navs have their problems, you just have to learn their shortcomings and make allowances-or buy a TomTom!

I’ve stopped using the in-built Nav completely. Not that I find it bad, in fact it’s more or less the same as my last car, a 2018 X3, it’s just that I find Google Maps through CarPlay to be way superior to any in-built system I’ve used before. If you can, give it a try, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Alternatively, there is a mapping and software update due this month, which may go some way to help improve the in-built Nav experience.

How much Mobile Data do you use using Google Maps for Navigation?
My current plan is only 4GB which I only use about 1GB per month outside of my home.

You can dowload maps at home (using wifi) for offline use when in the car.

I’ve a 100GB / month plan, last moth I used ~15gb of that, with mapping using a very small percentage of that.

If you are concerned about data(although it doesn't use much) you can download 'offline maps' over WiFi. Click on your photo in app and chose offline maps. You can chose the are you want to. I've got a road trip in a few weeks, I'll download the whole of England just in case I pass through a quiet zone.

You can enter the full address in the search box, no need to put the number in seperately.

So you can put in 53 gu83 9pk and it will take you to that number on the map.
