Hyundai Motor is upgrading its Bluelink connected car services technology with a range of new features to enhance the driving experiences of Hyundai customers. The new i30 will be the company’s first model to be equipped with the upgraded Bluelink. Hyundai’s state-of-the-art Bluelink combines intelligent automotive and IT technologies in order to provide greater comfort, safety and convenience for drivers. In addition to a refined user interface, the upgraded Bluelink offers a range of new benefits and services for Hyundai customers, including Connected Routing, Last Mile Navigation and live parking information, and a new user profile feature.

Hyundai’s upgraded Bluelink features a new user interface with a black screen and updated blue icons that display the time, weather and, if selected by the user, map guidance. The map UI now offers a choice between three colour schemes and an enhanced dark night mode. It displays a range of GPS-based information to aid drivers, including the current speed of the vehicle and information about traffic density. For a more tranquil driving experience, users can also select from different audible atmospheres called “Sounds of Nature”. These include “calm ocean waves”, “rainy day”, “open-air cafe”, “warm fireplace” and “snowy village”.

With the new cloud-based Connected Routing navigation, driving routes are calculated on a powerful server inside the Bluelink cloud environment, rather than through the car’s infotainment system. Connected Routing harnesses real-life and historical speed information through GPS, which is stored in the server and updated every month, to predict upcoming traffic every five minutes. This ensures more accurate traffic forecasting, more precise times of arrival, and more reliable route recalculations. In addition, the technology uses AI to learn the preferred routes of users.

The new Last Mile Navigation feature allows customers to continue the journey to their final destination after their car has parked. After turning off the engine, a pop-up appears on the screen to activate last mile guidance on the Bluelink smartphone app. The user can then choose from either Augmented Reality guidance or Google Maps, and is guided for a range of between 200 metres and two kilometres on their smartphone.

The design of the speed camera feature has received a design overhaul. Drivers are alerted 300 metres before they approach a speed camera on normal roads, and one kilometre ahead on motorways. In addition, GPS-based data shows the vehicle’s speed on the screen, which is highlighted in red when the car is above the speed limit.
