Has anybody activated it? Comes with 3 years free, but I'm not ever going to subscribe when that's up so I was considering skipping it.. I don't need an app to roll my windows down. Also the health thing bothers me given I plan to modify.

Do you actively use the app on your phone? What benefits have you found?
I used it to book a service appointment. Other than that I haven't found it very useful. Remote start isn't supported due to having a manual. I was mostly curious about what I could do with it lol

Yep enabled! This^ car location, especially if you park it in a ginormous parking lot. Lock and unlock doors, sound the horn and lights and check vehicle status. There's also POI search, locate nearby gas stations, Hyundai Dealerships, Diagnostic Reports Monthly Vehicle Report, owners manual, guides for auto use.

It's a good app and I've got two Hyundai's so I use it regularly. The other Hyundai I can remote start.

I just use it to make sure my car is locked and it has the added benefit of anti-theft, which i've never had an issue with vehicle theft, but I guess its nice. I don't plan to re-new.

Of all the uses this might get me. I'm trying to learn to be keyless. I don't use the key to get in or lock it, but I find I am sometimes forgetting to touch the handle when in a hurry and getting out. I have twice woke out of bed to go double check I locked it.. The app would allow me to do it from bed. So there is that.

So nobody is worried about adding a catless downpipe, JB4 (or whatever mod) and creating a CEL and it phoning home and being like..YOU NO WARRANTY HAVE ANYMO!

Nope, this is what you can do and can't from Hyundai

I've seen this image thrown around this site many times. I have zero faith in it. Does anybody have a link to an official Hyundai page that has this stated?
Even while logged into the Hyundai site, everything is super generic. Even the manual is a basic Veloster. I have not seen anything "N" specific in print or in FAQs.
Also, nice to know my first mod based on this has ruined my warranty.

You have now. This is Hyundai Assurance Official Policy & it's pretty specific. for the Veloster N.

It was posted by @ZachFount here first; Hyundai Master Parts Consultant/ Genesis Master Parts Consultant. Considering he works for Hyundai, I'd say it was pretty official.

https://www.velostern.com/forum/10-engine-technical-discussion/387-track-usage-modification.html#post3053

No offense intended; It's a simply matter of, taking responsibility or not. If you're going to modify beyond what Hyundai allows, you need to be willing to take responsibility for what comes along with it. Most owners can't afford to pay for the repairs that go along with such modifications, if something goes wrong. So instead of taking responsibility and owning the modifications, they remove them before going to the dealer. Keeping in mind, the dealer must prove, the modification was part of or responsible for the warranty issue.

So the best thing to do is, don't modify the VN or stay within the parameters Hyundai Assurance specifies as posted above.

For sure. Mod at your own risk. First thing I've ever done on a turbo car was void the warranty. You accept your actions. I still don't feel comfortable asking my dealer about a document off an "internet forum". I wish I could find something in writing on the internet that is stored on an official Hyundai site. Australians have a different warranty and apparently track time voids it. I specifically don't use my name at AutoX and ask for my times to not be posted. I don't ever see doing a real track event. Too risky for my daily. Seen too many guy's tear their car's up.

I did finally use the Blue Link to lock my car last night. My daughter got her bag out and I figured she forgot to lock it. I was right. So one use thus far. I've never lost my car so I don't see the tracking ever being useful, though I could be wrong. Maybe a situation will arise now. I'll be at a concert and just be like, screw it. Blue Link will find it, so I'm not going to pay attention.

I actully have a "N" Manual. Not a base Veloster Manual.

I have a physical manual in the car that is accurate. Are you saying in your My Hyundai online you have the N manual?

I have nothing N specific in my manual and warranty area on https://owners.hyundaiusa.com/us/en/resources/manuals-warranties.html
Your right, as far as online its exactly what your saying. Regional Hyundai in Broken Arrow, OK where I bought mine flat out told me if I had any issues at all whether I drive it on the road or track to bring it right in. They said their Maintenance Dept had already gotten a memo stating to follow warranty whether the car was driven on street or track. And of course can't have a BOV installed or a tune on the ECU. The ECU does have a tune counter on it I was reading. I really want to put a new tune on the car, but not ready too throw away my warranty quite yet. Only 6,000 miles.

So can you roll the windows down remotely with the Blue Link app? Only thing I would use it for. 100deg summers here in TN plus having and open pavement parking lot lend to the interior getting very hot.

These are the actions you are able to click on. Start and Stop doesn't work and show a dialog saying it's not supported. There is also another status page that shows different things.

In your opinion yes, mine no! You can't have a remote start with a manual transmission but it's the only thing that is not functional. Plus the Blue ink app covers more than just the VN. We have two Hyundais and it work on multiple models from the Accent Limited to every other premium model, which includes BlueLink. At the top of the app you just select which model has been loaded by VIN and it controls their function as well.

There are many laws regarding warranty coverage. The factory cannot deny warranty just because you have aftermarket parts installed. Those parts have to be proven to have caused the damage.


So, if you install an aftermarket intercooler, it doesn't affect the air fuel ratio, doesn't affect any internal pieces, it just cools air more efficiently than the stock intercooler. It should not in any way void your warranty. An aftermarket blow off valve however could allow an overboost condition, or leak more than the factory one too, which wouldn't be covered under warranty.


The safe thing to do is if you install aftermarket parts, keep the old ones. If you spin a bearing one day, have had the dealership do the oil changes by the recommended intervals, but you have an aftermarket downpipe/high flow cat or something, just take the time and swap it back over to the factory one before taking it in for warranty work. The common mods I've seen so far for this model (blow off valve, intercooler, etc) are fairly easy to swap back out. Not too time consuming either. For me, the only mods I'm planning for mine is the Forge Motorsport intercooler to keep IAT's lower. I'm not too worried about more power, 275 is plenty for a fun hot hatch I plan to use as a daily driver. I have a 97 Thunderbird I'm putting a hopped up aluminum block v8 in that is my hot rod. I just feel life is too short to drive boring cars, and the Veloster N really checks all my boxes for something fun that I don't have to wrench on every weekend.
