Anyone have it yet?
I bought a 2013 Sonata this week and it is equipped with BlueLink. I'm
on the trial period.
Overall, if it can be made to work it is a superior system to GM's
OnStar, but it has some reliability issues so far.
My last couple of cars had aftermarket remote starters. One push of
the button would make it start. With the phone app on my Android, if
the phone is asleep, it takes 16 keystrokes to do the same thing.
Start the app, enter my password, select the vehicle (even though I
only have one) select remote start, enter the four digit PIN. I'll
need a coffee break after all of that!.
A few times I had problems with the phone app not allowing me to enter
my password to get to the remote features, such and locking, horn and
Using the My Hyundai web page, you can do the same thing. Well, you
have to find it first. Remote starting is buried a few layers down
and not so obvious. You can find the locking and unlocking features,
but they hide the start button down another layer someplace. Why???
The idiot that designed the web layout should be condemned to having
to use it to start his car every day.
There are some other features that I found last night, but could not
find again today. Searching for POIs for the navigation system and
sending them to the car. Needs some refinement.
BlueLink also has the option of sending you and Eco report after every
fill up. Mine was not sent today.
If everything worked reliably, was a bit simpler to use, I'd rate it a
ten. Right now, it is about a 4.
Oh, one more thing. The My Hyundai web page has a place to send
feedback. I typed out what I posted here. Just as I was going to
click the send button, it just logged me out and lost it. How dumb is
As for the rest of the car? Love it. the 2.0 turbo has lots of
