Las Vegas, Jan 10, 2014 - Yesterday at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the staffs of TechHive and PCWorld selected the 2015 Hyundai Genesis as one of their top products from the show. The Genesis won in the Best Car Tech category.
Thousands of developers and hardware makers attend CES every year, bringing thousands more products with them. The editors of TechHive and PCWorld staked out the sprawling show floor to find the best that CES had to offer.
“Apps are the thing for cars at CES this year, and the 2015 Hyundai Genesis takes the trend further than anyone else,” said Melissa Riofrio, senior editor, PCWorld. “The car will sport the latest version of Hyundai’s Blue Link® telematics system, and its basic functions will be accessible via a browser, a smartphone, or the central display. But what I really love is how the Blue Link system can dig into local sources like your phone and calendar, and external sources like traffic reports, to recommend the best departure time for your next errand. Now that’s service.”
“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.”
GENESIS INTELLIGENT ASSISTANT APP
The Genesis Intelligent Assistant is a proactive app for automobiles intended to save the driver time and provide an even higher level of convenience. The app combines Blue Link features, data from the vehicle, the owner’s smartphone and the internet with multiple layers of intelligence. This allows the Genesis Intelligent Assistant app to send proactive notifications and recommendations to the Genesis owner in preparation for their drive.
Genesis owners will no longer need to remember to remote start their car on a hot or cold day. The Genesis Intelligent Assistant app will remind them to do it through their smartphone.
