After market cruise control a bad idea?

I am seriously looking at the new Accents and currently use cruise control every day because on our country roads the sheriffs patrol heavily (broad shoulder roads, good pavement, 55 - 65 MPH speed limit).
Problem is that the cruise comes with a package that costs $1200 and includes lots of gingerbread. My wife wants me to look into after market cruise control but I'd be concerned that it would not be as reliable/safe and could mess something up on the car - possibly impact the warranty (if it is even available)
I wish I could just get manual crank windows and a manual transmission (if my wife would learn how to drive standard shift) but get cruise, AC, and good radio, etc.
Anyone have experience with after market stuff like that?

They do make them. This shows up to 2011 so you may want to check for newer models http://www.thecruisecontrolstore.com/ez-catalog/X380183/0015
I see they also have one for the Genesis. I thought it was standard on the Gen?
I had a CC on a Chevy years ago and it worked as well as the factory, but, times have changed so I can't vouch for present models.
The $1200 package is not all that bag. Sure, it is a money make for Hyundai, but you go get rear disc brakes, Bluetooth, larger tires in the deal. You may get to really like those goodies after using them a while.
