Monitoring teen drivers
Car crashes are the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, and speeding is a contributing factor in about a third of those crashes. Mom and Dad can't always be there to influence their teen driver's judgment, but a new app developed for Hyundai's in-car infotainment system allows parents to monitor and set restrictions on the car's speed, hours of operation and where it travels. If the driver exceeds a preset speed limit, for example, the parent will receive an alert via text, email and soon, a mobile app. The teenage driver also will see a notification on the vehicle's multimedia screen.
The Hyundai Blue Link Vehicle Safeguard Alerts In-Vehicle App is currently available on the 2015 Hyundai Azera and soon will be offered on both Genesis and Sonata models equipped with navigation systems.
