By providing commute information and access to their smartphone calendar, owners can have their Genesis app automatically estimate appropriate departure times and send reminders for any upcoming appointments that require driving. Departure reminder messages are determined by up-to-the-minute commute times from the user’s current location to the destination, accounting for traffic.
Genesis owners can also take temperature control to a new level, with temperature variance notifications, remote start to pre-heat or cool the car and outside temperature detection based on zip code prior to departure time.
In addition, recommendations for gas stations are provided, allowing owners to select a station and send the location to their Genesis’ navigation system. A vehicle health status will also be communicated through the user’s smartphone when an action is required to allow owners to schedule car care for their Genesis directly from his or her app.
MyGenesisUSA.com is a website designed exclusively for Genesis owners. It only takes a minute for the owner to register and gain access to the tools, resources and services that make owning a Genesis a pleasure. Once registered, owners can get service reminders and alerts, online scheduling for service valet, access their Genesis Connected Services features, view their car’s service history and access how-to videos.
