The refreshed app is part of a series of enhancements planned around Blue Link, including a redesigned Blue Link section on HyundaiNews.com and 12 all-new instructional videos designed to familiarize viewers with Blue Link features.
The videos, which feature actual Hyundai employees, can be seen on Hyundai’s YouTube channel, HyundaiBlueLink.com or in a dedicated section on HyundaiNews.com.
Hyundai offers a complimentary trial period for Blue Link-equipped vehicles. Customers opting-in for a no obligation auto-renewal can receive up to one year of Blue Link Assurance and 6 months of Blue Link Essentials and Guidance with access to the Blue Link app and its features.
