Hyundai Blue Link

Hyundai Blue Link (also branded as Genesis Connected Services) is a connected vehicle system that uses Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone and gather information from the car. The system uses a mobile app from Hyundai to allow the customer to start, stop, lock or unlock their Hyundai automobile. This only works for Blue Link supported vehicles. If your automobile was to be carjacked, you could stop the vehicle from your phone. There is also a feature that uses voice regconition. It is now included on most hyundai vehicles after purchase for three years.

Blue Link functionality varies based on the type of vehicle, as well as the type of radio the vehicle is equipped with. For example, a vehicle with no touchscreen may not offer some services.

In the United States, the Blue Link system debuted on the 2012 Hyundai Veloster as standard equipment, and has become an available feature on most Hyundai models sold since then.


Smartphones can connect to Hyundai Blue Link using Bluetooth technology or a USB cable and an installed Hyundai Blue Link mobile application. Hyundai Blue Link is wirelessly upgradeable, so in-vehicle applications may be upgraded.[citation needed] Hyundai Blue Link is compatible with a wide variety of mobile phones (iOS & Android) with a data plan.

When Blue Link first launched, the connectivity was provided by a joint relationship of Aeris Communications, Inc. and Sprint Corp.[1] On January 21, 2014 Hyundai announced it had selected Verizon Enterprise Solutions with integration provided by Opentext. The Opentext Business Network platform also supports other car manufacturers such as Land Rover/Jaguar, Daimler, Ford, General Motors and Mitsubishi.
