Hyundai launched its new Blue Link telematics service at CES 2011. Editor Wayne Cunningham demonstrates a few of its functions.

-Hi, I'm Wayne Cunningham for CNET. I'm taking a look at Hyundai's BlueLink Telematic Service. The service offers buttons in the rearview mirror frame that allow you to connect to the service. So, for example, if I wanna search for a POI using Microsoft's Bing service, I just push the POI button. -Connecting to Hyundai BlueLink POI download. Please wait. -And I wait for the car's embedded connection to connect to the external server. The service uses a voice command system. And it's now connected. -Welcome to Hyundai BlueLink. A condition has occurred which may cause your engine control system to not work properly. Hyundai recommends repair be made when convenient. New destination. Please say a destination. -Hardware store. -Please wait. -Now, the service is using my natural language request to search Bing for local hardware stores. -You said, "hardware store." Would you like to search for this destination? -Yes. -Please wait. Commercial Hardware located at 3725 West Russell Road, Las Vegas, NV. Would you like to download this destination? -Yes. -The destination will be downloaded to your vehicle. Thank you for calling Hyundai BlueLink. -Now, as you can see, with an embedded navigation system in the vehicle, I can actually get that address downloaded directly to the navigation system, display it on the map, and set it as a destination. Other services include weather and traffic. So, if I go to the BlueLink button, the dedicated BlueLink button on the mirror frame-- -Connecting, please wait. -it'll give me a number of service options. -Welcome to Hyundai BlueLink. A condition has occurred which may cause your engine control system to not work properly. Hyundai recommends repair be made when convenient. Please state the name of the service. -Weather. -Weather.
