Hyundai and Kia have announced plans to introduce an updated Blue Link and UVO telematics system at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The second-generation system will have Google integration which will allow users to quickly access the search giant's Maps and Places database. Drivers will be able to find points of interest and receive driving directions in a "seamless and organic manner."
According to Barry Ratzlaff, director of Customer Connect at Hyundai Motor America, "The integration of Google Maps APIs makes Blue Link even more effective. We look forward to continuing work with Google to bring innovative solutions to Hyundai owners.”
Besides the new Google integration, the telematic systems have Bluetooth connectivity, vehicle diagnostics and a "Parking Minder" which sends directions to drivers if they forget where they parked.
