Hyundai Motor America launched its enhanced Blue Link in-vehicle telematics platform, secured and integrated by Covisint, on Monday at Pepcom’s Digital Experience, right before the opening of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
The next-generation Blue Link system features a destination search powered by Google, a Genesis Intelligent Assistant app and a Google Glass app.
All these enhancements launch on the new 2015 Genesis sedan, which goes on sale in the Spring.
Hyundai also used the event to debut its latest infotainment system premiering in the 2015 Genesis sedan.
“Customers told us they want Blue Link to work like their smartphone and we’ve worked with Google, Covisint and Station Digital Media to deliver this level of functionality,” said Barry Ratzlaff, executive director, Customer Connect and Service Business Development, Hyundai Motor America.
“Blue Link subscribers now have access to Google’s accuracy and massive database when they search for destinations. Plus our engineers have developed a variety of new features aimed at delighting our customers.”
Users will be able to take advantage of Google’s destination search via the Blue Link button (voice recognition) and navigation display, or through myhyundai.com and the Blue Link mobile app to send a destination to their car.
