Hyundai has launched the Bluelink app and connected car service, a system designed to enable owners to control and access various new vehicle features from a smartphone.

Bluelink will debut on the company’s updated Palisade SUV, due in the third quarter of this year, before rolling out across Hyundai’s model range.

Amongst its functions, the Bluelink app lets users find their car, or search for a destination, parking space, service station or restaurant on their smartphone, and then send the location straight to the in-car navigation system.

In the event of an accident that causes the airbags to deploy, the vehicle will automatically call for help and also enable quick access to data such as driving information records. As well as offering information on key parts of their vehicle including tyres, brakes, airbags and other safety and security features, Bluelink also lets users set, check and back-up their vehicle preferences as well as transfer them to another Hyundai vehicle.

Control of an array of vehicle features – including door locks, climate control settings, and turning on heated and cooled seats – can also be done remotely. For EV models, this remote-control functionality will include the ability to schedule battery charging.

“With the rollout of Hyundai Bluelink, we are firmly on track to realise our goal of delivering the super-connected mobility solutions of the future,” said Ted Lee, CEO of Hyundai Motor Company Australia.

“Bluelink makes owning a Hyundai safer, with the benefit of the Automatic Collision Notification and SOS functions, as well as more convenient and more rewarding.

“With Bluelink now it’s easier than ever for customers to stay connected to their Hyundai.”
