The inclusion of Blue Link remote and Assurance Car Care features into the MyHyundai makes vehicle management and ownership easier. Currently, owners can manage their Blue Link account, along with tracking vehicle service history, scheduling maintenance and checking vehicle information on MyHyundai.com.
To access the full set of app features, users will need to activate their Blue Link service with the remote package. Customers without a current Blue Link subscription can get a demonstration of the Blue Link remote features inside the MyHyundai app.
Hyundai Blue Link
Blue Link brings unified connectivity directly into the car with technology like Remote Start with Climate Control, Destination Search powered by Google, Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Car Finder, Enhanced Roadside Assistance, and Stolen Vehicle Recovery. Blue Link can be easily accessed from the buttons on the rearview mirror, the Web or via the MyHyundai app. Some of these features can even be controlled via the latest Android Wear™ and new Apple Watch™ smartwatch offerings.
Hyundai Assurance Car Care
Customers can use the car care features found in the MyHyundai app to conveniently schedule an oil change at their favorite dealership or access their Hyundai’s interactive owner’s manual that provides owners a convenient, simpler way to become familiar with the full capabilities of the vehicle. The MyHyundai app also has quick reference guides and maintenance and recall reminders.
Annual subscriptions to Hyundai Blue Link Remote is $99 a year.
There are three Hyundai Blue Link plans Connected Care, Remote and Guidance. After the trial period is over, each package is available for $99/year. The Connected Care Package comes with a complimentary one year trial for all new Blue Link equipped vehicles. A three-month trial for Remote and Guidance is available when you sign up using your credit card.
Hyundai recently updated it head units for free to Android Auto and CarPlay for 2015-6 Hyundai Sonata, 2015-6 Genesis, 2016 Elantra, 2016 Tucson & 2017 Santa Fe Sport.
In 2015 we learned that some Hyundai buyers are perturbed that if they buy keep Blue Link services for one-year, the entire Blue Link system is disabled with a steep fee to reinstate the service, which is a basis of a lawsuit.
Hyundai buyers should be aware that the service after being inactive for a year, renders the hardware inoperable and requires new hardware with installation for $500 to reactivate the service, lowering the resale value of the car.
