Hyundai BlueLink

With Hyundai BlueLink, you open up a new realm of connectivity between your phone and your ride. You can keep tabs on every aspect of your Hyundai while you’re on the road and be able to drive with more comfort knowing the health and state of your vehicle. 

There are many features, advantages, and benefits to enjoy with BlueLink in your car. Woodstock Hyundai covers all the bases when it comes to this powerful system.

What is Hyundai BlueLink? 

Hyundai BlueLink is a suite of digital applications and remote services connecting you and your vehicle at all times. 

Essentially, your smartphone becomes a remote control for your car. The Hyundai BlueLink app lets you start your car vehicle remotely. With this system, you can save up to three of your favourite settings and start your car the way you want to. You can turn on the steering wheel using BlueLink and also set the cabin temperature.

You can lock or unlock your Hyundai from a remote location using BlueLink as well. The app can also tell you if your doors are locked or unlocked, if your trunk is open or closed, or indicate if your car needs gas. Furthermore, BlueLink will inform you whether things like your engine, rear defrost, climate, and heated steering wheel are on or off. 

Essentially, BlueLink acts as a security alert mechanism for your Hyundai, letting you secure your vehicle how you want to.

What Can BlueLink Do?

Aside from the features mentioned above, BlueLink can do so much more for you. 

Locate Your Car

If you've forgotten where you've parked, BlueLink gives you the benefit of seeing your car's location on a map on your phone and will provide you with directions to locate it. It even has a parking timer that lets you set an expiration alarm and reminder. 

Emergency Assistance

While you’re on the road, BlueLink hooks you up to SOS Emergency and Roadside Assistance in case you need some help out there. Your rear-view mirror has buttons that connect you right away to roadside assistance or emergency services. If your Hyundai gets involved in a collision, your vehicle will automatically call for emergency services. 

Search Capabilities

If you need to look for something, BlueLink connects you to Google search, returning addresses, phone numbers, and other pertinent information at a moment’s notice. All you have to do is push a button and say a category or point of interest. 


Another advantage of having BlueLink is being able to track diagnostics from the comfort of your driver’s seat. You can monitor your Hyundai’s health by initiating a vehicle health evaluation of key performance systems and driving statistics. You can check it out in the BlueLink app or have these statistics emailed to you. With BlueLink, you’ll also know when it’s time to get your Hyundai serviced and set reminders. It will give you a real-time diagnosis as you can access on-demand diagnostics from your Hyundai’s touchscreen display. 

Dealer Information Recall

BlueLink can even help you find a dealer, giving you contact information, directions and operational hours when you’re on the go. With BlueLink, you’re always a step ahead.
