Hyundai recently introduced a new technological feature in the form of the MyHyundai Bluelink program. This program is an app you can download on your phone, tablet, or mobile device. The application provides drivers with important information about their Hyundai vehicle in an instant, streamlining safety, providing useful statistics, and offering access to features of the vehicle itself. Here’s what you need to know about MyHyundai Bluelink.
What Is MyHyundai Bluelink?
MyHyundai is the name of the app that you can download on your device. The MyHyundai app connects to vehicles equipped with the Bluelink technology. By connecting your vehicle to the app, you can access all Bluelink features from anywhere. To use this program, you need a compatible device, a vehicle with the right technology, and a subscription to the app so you can access the complete range of services.
First, check the list Hyundai created to see if your phone or mobile device works with the app. Then, you can purchase a subscription to one of Hyundai’s three Bluelink packages for $99 per year or $9.90 per month. Currently, Hyundai has a limited number of vehicles outfitted with Bluelink technology. Bluelink is available on these models:
- Sonata Hybrid.
- Veloster Turbo.
- Genesis Coupe.
- Elantra GT.
- Santa Fe.
- Santa Fe Sport.
Benefits of the MyHyundai Bluelink Program
If you’re considering downloading the MyHyundai app to use the Bluelink program, it’s helpful to consider the benefits:
Experience peace of mind with Bluelink’s safety features. The message center notifies users of any important safety updates, like a recall on a product or vehicle, or to schedule a service for your car. The app is outfitted with Collision Notification technology, alerting the Bluelink Emergency Response Center in the event of an accident. If you need roadside assistance for a minor issue with your vehicle, you can use the app to make arrangements. Additionally, if you need emergency services, you can press the “SOS Emergency Assistance” button for immediate help.
Another safety feature that benefits drivers is the ability to lock their vehicles remotely. If you get to the office and can’t remember whether you locked your vehicle, you no longer have to worry. Instead, you can secure your car from afar. You can also secure the app using a pin code or biometric information, like your fingerprint.
Another benefit of using Bluelink is the increased convenience for Hyundai drivers. Features like “Find My Car” can help you locate your vehicle in a busy parking lot or when you can’t remember where you parked downtown. You might implement some driving limits using Curfew Alert, Speed Alert, and Geo-Fence, which can help you conveniently limit how late driving occurs, how fast someone drives, and where they go. These features are perfect for families with young drivers.
Another convenient benefit of Bluelink is the ability to store all your vehicle’s maintenance records in one secure location. By storing these documents in the app, you don’t have to print out paperwork or keep track of your vehicle’s records in a filing cabinet. Instead, you can access these records with the push of a button.
Linking your car to the MyHyundai app gives you remote access to some of your vehicle’s features. From the app, you can lock or unlock your car. Additionally, you can start the vehicle and turn on the thermostat and headlights. With this level of access to your car, you can now warm up or cool down your Hyundai before you hit the road so you always ride in comfort. Remote control of the car’s climate is best for people living in particularly warm or cold areas.
Most of the other features in the app are available remotely. While you may need an internet connection to use the app, you now have remote access to your vehicle in ways you never have before. You can drive confidently knowing Hyundai’s got you covered.
Yet another amazing benefit of the Bluelink technology includes access to live, accurate vehicle information. Use the app to view the charging status of your electric or hybrid vehicle to ensure you have enough battery to make the journey. You can also check fluid levels, like oil, to ensure your car is safe to drive.
Other vehicle information is available in-app to simplify the process of owning and maintaining your Hyundai. You can use Bluelink to see your car’s temperature, tire pressure, and even the current gas mileage. If needed, you can generate a vehicle health report straight from within the MyHyundai app. This technology gives you new insight into the health of your vehicle so you can safely arrive at your destination.
Bluelink Package Features
MyHyundai offers three Bluelink packages for drivers to choose from. While they’re currently all the same price, it’s best to choose the package that suits your lifestyle. Here’s a description of each one:
The Connected Care package is focused on the maintenance of your Hyundai. It sends regular service reminders, helps you schedule service, and provides diagnostic alerts so you always know what’s going on with your vehicle. With Enhanced Roadside Assistance available with Connected Care, this package is great for commuters or people who spend a lot of time on the open road.
The Remote package is designed to prioritize remote access to your Hyundai. If you want to warm up your vehicle during a snowstorm, you can use the Remote Start Climate Control feature. Other remote features, like a lock and unlock, are included in this package.
The Guidance package is designed with travelers in mind. This package allows drivers to send locations to their vehicles from their phones so they can head in the right direction. It also includes Destination Search, which looks for the most updated location so you’ll never get lost.
Regardless of which package you choose, the MyHyundai app and Bluelink technology offer you unbridled access to your vehicle. You can contact our team at Huffines Hyundai Plano to learn more about Hyundai vehicles equipped with this technology. We look forward to seeing you at the dealership.
