Ever Heard of Blue Link?

This might get wordy. See for yourself what the Blue Link is all about, it is definitely worth saving your pennies for. Please notice in honor of Hyundai's Blue link, I made a blue link to click on. I couldn't help myself.

What is it?

You've heard of OnStar, right? the system that will call if you get into an accident or start your car if you lost your keys, etc. etc. Well, this is OnStar on Steroids. Eat your heart out, GM.

Not only does Blue Link know where you are, where you are going, every shortcut and points of interest in the area but it can also tell you

  • gas stations in the area and their prices

  • restaurants and reviews from past customers

  • mechanical problems with your car AND make an appointment to fix them

  • call for help if you are in an accident

We are taking "smart cars" to a whole new level and with more seating. This system is amazing.

What else does it do?

  • Automated Crash Notification

  • SOS Emergency Assistance - not only dispatching appropriate assistance but also notifying friends and family.

  • Stolen Vehicle Recovery - finds your stolen vehicle fast using a GPS and may even lower your insurance premiums

  • Remote Lock, Unlock and Vehicle Start via mobile app, phone call or website

  • Voice to Text

  • Monthly Vehicle Reports - issues, mileage, upcoming maintenance all to your email once a month - HANDY!

  • Point-of-Interest Web Search - upload from internet to owner website and it'll be waiting in your car when you buckle up.

  • Turn-by-Turn Navigation System - fastest, shortest, least traffic, best mileage, avoid highways or toll roads.

  • Eco Coach - tracks miles and CO2 emissions and give advice on efficient driving.

All of these systems are linked to an "owner website" where you are log in to upload anything right to your car's Blue Link System. You can log on anytime from work and upload directions to dinner for tonight, lock your car, and even get safe driving advice. This is the car of the future.

When will it come out?

Expect Blue Link's System to be in 2012 Hyundai Sonatas and 2012 Hyundai Velosters. The Hyundai Veloster has an expected release this summer. So maybe over spring break you can do a quick lemonade stand for some extra cash to get this amazing system!

Last but not least..

Choose from 3 Packages

  1. Assurance - basic OnStar-esque system, but amplified. Crash notification, SOS, monthly email vehicle reports, and enhanced roadside assistance.

  2. Essentials - this package is more than the essentials it even goes as far to provide a curfew alert for your "I promise I'll be home by 11" teenager, car lock and unlock, and stolen vehicle recovery.

  3. Guidance - this takes essentials to the next level - this package even goes as far as giving you restaurant reviews and advice. Traffic reports and an Eco Coach. Your car becomes your friend.
