Please Help
Hyundai (Aust) have indicated this is part of the Pre Delivery checklist when they "plug the car" in to the computer / diag tool.
Some early owners had the Auto Link fitted from new. The dealer fits these and I am guessing when the first N cars did not have one some dealers just grabbed one from somewhere and fitted it. Hyundai (AUS) say the device was not spec'ed for the N car in Australia as it is not an economy type car. Fair enough I guess. My dealer gave me one (no charge) once I explained my motivation for having it. See my earlier post. I was told also that the device "could" cause the car some issues by the dealer. I ran the car for two days and then fitted the Auto Link. No detectable issues with the car since the install which is nice. It is easy to remove should something appear in the future.
It is not configured correctly for the N so many of the functions don't work at this point. This is not to say in the future that Hyundai could not roll out an update. It's just software after all.
For me there is no downside. No cost. No car issues. Calls the numbers (via my phone) I want should the airbags deploy (hopefully). I can see the fuel level in my lounge room and the odometer too.
