Software/Firmware updates

New owner of a 2017 Sorento LX AWD. I notice in the settings there's an option to update the firmware. When I click on it I get an error, something to do with checking the memory (I didn't write it down).

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knows how to do an upgrade. I've connected it to my home wifi thinking that would allow it to pull down or check for updates but no go.

Thanks!

Unless they change something, the only way to get firmware/software updates is to purchase a map update and any new firmware and software updates are included on the SD card. MnSoft | Hyundai & Kia Map Update You can compare versions here:SD Matrix

Well, my LX does not have the internal navigation. I'm using Android Auto for navigation. So, I don't have an SD card slot. Not one I've found.

There is an option for updating, I tried to post a screen shot of it and what happens when I hit the update button but I don't have enough posts to attach pictures. Stupid rule.
