Is Blue Link worth it?

Hey everyone, I recently acquired a 2021 Sonata Limited and I’m interested in hearing about your experiences with Blue Link. Is it worth investing in? I’m looking for a reliable tracker for my car, and I’m considering options like Blue Link, using an AirTag, or opting for an advanced car tracker available on Amazon. I’d appreciate hearing your thoughts and any recommendations you have!

Blue Link is the best car tracker for Hyundai cars because it is actually made by the Hyundai company for its cars hence compatible with your 2021 Sonata.
It has features like remote start, climate control, and in-car maintenance scheduling.
It is friendly to use and adds a layer of convenience to your driving experience.
When it comes to tracking your car, Blue Link does offer vehicle recovery services in case of theft, which could be a valuable feature for you.

Sometimes, I forget whether I locked the car or not, so having this remote lock feature is a lifesaver though it doesn’t work without a signal.
The stolen vehicle feature is awesome, too. It uses GPS to show you exactly where your car is, and you can even immobilize it remotely.

I have a manual transmission, so I can’t enjoy the convenience of a remote starter during cold Midwest winters. However, I do use the app for locating my car (which I share with another driver), remote locking, and occasionally flashing the horn/lights if I suspect someone might be sneaking around outside. There are a lot of catalytic converter thefts in my area, so these features give me peace of mind. Given how frequently I use these functions, I find the cost justified.
