Three key Hyundai models will now feature the innovative Android Auto™ technology that seamlessly links a user’s Android-based (operating system 5.0 “Lollipop” and
later versions) smartphone with the vehicle’s on board sound and communications systems.
Hyundai New Zealand General Manager Andy Sinclair says ‘smart motoring’ using the driver’s existing phone operating system is the next wave of innovation on New Zealand roads and can now be enjoyed by owners of the i30 Series II, Tucson and the recently launched Elantra.

Android’s technology is now offered alongside Apple’s CarPlay™, meaning most smart phone users can safely access information and entertainment portals in any of these models. Hyundai was among the first to confirm Apple’s CarPlay™ system for New Zealand when it launched the Tucson in late 2015.

“Whether the motorist prefers Apple or Android, the systems are all about ease of use and more importantly safety. All you need is a compatible smart phone, a USB cable and your Elantra, i30** or Tucson**. The rest is easy,” he said. Adding Android Auto capability to the existing provision of an interface for Apple CarPlay™

Adding Android Auto capability to the existing provision of an interface for Apple CarPlay™ means all smart phone users* can control audio system sources and levels, make and receive phone calls using SIRI voice commands (for iOS), compose and play back text messages and a form of navigation software as well, like Google Maps for Android Auto™ and Apple Maps for Apple CarPlay™.

The system also gives direct access to some of the ‘apps’ on the user’s phone.
These apps include Google Maps, Spotify, iHeart Radio and Google Play Music. “This means increased enjoyment and convenience for our owners, and it also means enhanced safety. This is really the next step in intuitive vehicle communications,” said Mr Sinclair.
