Hyundai i30 connectivity project unveiled at 2013 Geneva Motor Show

Hyundai brought a New Generation i30 three-door model to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show to demonstrate how smartphones can be used as an essential component to make the motoring experience more personalized, pleasant, and practical. Hyundai showed off how drivers can benefit from the more intensive integration of personal devices (smartphones) and Hyundai models.

Hyundai is running this innovative connectivity concept in partnership with LG. Under Hyundai’s connectivity project, the smartphone can unlock the doors and instantly personalize its settings, which include changing the electric seat and mirror positions, as well as its radio station presets, navigation settings, menu appearance and other preferences. When the smartphone is positioned in a particular location in the center console, it can be wirelessly charged.

This means that the driver can do away with having nasty-looking cables in the cabin. For the first time ever, this system exclusively uses wireless MirrorLink, which enables the driver to get access to and make use of the smartphone’s content by using the 7-inch high-resolution touch screen of the i30.

The driver or passenger is able to get to the mobile device’s navigation functions, internet-based apps like email, contacts and phone call lists, and multimedia content, including videos. Furthermore, this Hyundai app permits owners to connect remotely with their vehicles and find out if the car has been locked or if any of the windows and sunroof was left open.

Owners can also tell if the lights were left on. The Hyundai app enables customers to take a look at the feed from the rear view camera, a first among car companies. Customers are able to plan their next trip using this app, which permits for the remote monitoring of the vehicle’s fuel and oil levels, as well as driving range. It can also check the fuel use of the past trip. This app offers more convenience by allowing users to remotely check tire pressure and the temperature of the cabin. They can also use Google Maps to quickly find their way to where they parked their vehicle.
