Hyundai announced at the beginning of this year that it would bring the ability to interact with its vehicles from an Android Wear device in a future update to its Blue Link app. That time has come. Now Hyundai owners can use the gadget on their wrists to remote start engines, lock doors, flash lights, honk horns, and locate cars.
Hyundai showed off the functionality at CES, demoing how all of this could be done just by using voice commands. It's the kind of thing that is, to use technical terms, simply cool. Many of us are still making the transition from old vehicles to newer models with their own key fobs. This is taking things to a new level entirely.
The Android Wear features should be available to all Blue Link-equipped Hyundai vehicles starting with the 2012 Sonata.
