Genesis With Nav - How to Change To Celcius

Hello All,

I just bought a Genesis 3.8 with the Navigation system and I am trying to figure out how to change the climate output to Celcius. The manual tells you how to do this if you don't have the navigation system but this doesn't apply to me (i don't have an "enter button"). The accompanying navigation manual doesn't tell you how to change from fareheit to celcius. (note i'm talking about the air conditioning output, i was able to change the outside temperature to celcius from the setup menu).

Does anyone else have the navigation and figured out how to change this?

Thank you in advance!

Bruce

I'm not sure, but most Hyundais you hold down the ambient temp button & apply + or - temperature button/lever.

Hi Bruce,

I have the same issue here...Can't switch from F to C at all! Even in setup menu, I can't seem to find the temp setting. I am usually very good with gadget stuff, but it looks like I am really missing something here...please let me know if you finally figured it out.

thanks!

see my above post, I'm 99% certain if you do that procedure it will work.

I didn't have to work Saturday, but I checked on it today spending a couple hours off & on trying to figure it out in a 3.8 GT w/Nav using the online owners manual with NO luck

Sorry, but you are right, it can't be done. I had one my techs help me with this too still with no luck. All the ones w/o Nav are easy though.

I have the same issue. Everything else is in meters / kilometers, but the climate control is in Fahrenheit. I did read in the owner's manual that unplugging the battery and reconnecting does the trick, but that was on the non-Nav versions of the genesis. Google got me a page of someone who had it in F and it reverted to C after the battery was disconnected.

How do I change the temperature control from Celsius to Fahrenheit? - Car Forum

Any one want to give this a try and reply back to this thread?

The '03 Sonata is set up where you hold down ambient temp button & temp down arrow at same time to change for C to F.

Problem is that the sonata's setup is vastly different than the genesis. This is what my console looks like (except for colour)

I don't see anything for ambient temp on the dash, and tried all types of combinations of holding the "climate" button and other buttons or dials to change it, but nothing changes.
