Hyundai is the world’s hottest automaker for style, fuel economy, and affordable technology.
Blue Link Technology
Its new, cloud-based Blue Link integrated cellular data-and-voice phone telematics system (!) provides up to 32 services at a starting price roughly half of what it costs for OnStar, the offering from General Motors.
At about $79 per year, Blue Link provides:
- Automatic crash notification and roadside service
The next-tier price gets you:
- Spoken text messages
- Location sharing
- Remote door unlock
- Geo-fencing of teen drivers
A third package adds navigation lookup. Hyundai kicks off Blue Link offerings shortly on the 2012 Hyundai Sonata, one of the 10 best selling cars in the US, and on the new sports coupe, the Hyundai Veloster.
Nice! Ask us about it if you’ve got questions!
Blue Link will eventually be embedded in all Hyundais as of the 2013 model year.
