With the multiple cameras, many sensors, and available onboard digital storage, would anyone know of a way to use this as a 'dash cam'? It would be an easy software addition and then negate the need to install an independent camera system.

it is unbelievable to me that my 30000+Hybrid Blue Tuscon has such a crappy backup camera. I installed an 80.00 aftermarket backup camera/ dash cam on my Honda Element that records hours of video in 1080p 30 fps to an sd card from front and rear cameras. I can view both front and rear views separately or in a 10 inch split screen anytime, real time or recorded video at the touch of a button.

Apparently, they have this enabled on Tucsons in South Korea
looking for updates in Korea, I could see that also. Here's the Korean update site translated to English:

I would suggest everyone here do the same as I did here in Spain:
Send a Twitter and contact through the Hyundai website complaining that we need that update. I did this recently to complain that Europe was not listed (under the update site), and to have my car updated I need to go to the dealer. It hasn't passed two weeks, and now we have a Europe update site available!!! (Hope that it's thanks to my complaint :cool:)

Let us know how it works when you get the update! I'd be curious if it allows you to easily review the recorded footage, or if is it only accessible through diagnostics like after an accident.

It was a nice dream while it lasted, but apparently, additional hardware is also needed. Therefore, for North American vehicles to get this, Hyundai would have to provide both firmware changes to support it and allow the supply chain to make the hardware available here. And of course, it'd all have to be priced in a way that's a win-win ... high enough that Hyundai makes money, yet low enough that enough customers would opt to buy it, rather than choose from the plethora of after market dash cams available. I'd be surprised (though PLEASANTLY) if they did that!

Your bluelink streams camera video to Hyundai's cloud. Find out what they've got and how much it costs to get video from a certain time.

Really?!? Are you saying that even our North American models are quietly doing this over the cellular network in realtime?

If so, any chance you can share your source? Also, did we all innocently agree to this in a privacy agreement somehow, somewhere??!

And BTW, given how dog-slow Bluelink operations seem to be, I'm having a hard time believing their setup is up to the task! LOL

It's really shocking the data they collect. The privacy policy is outlined right at the front of your owners manual just before the table of contents. There's a link there for more detailed info. You agree to Hyundai's privacy policy when you accept BlueLink. To stop the data mining, you must formally contact Hyundai and renounce BlueLink service.

Do you possibly have a source/link describing that they save realtime video capture?

Unfortunately, as the other user said, it's necessary a dashcam hardware to record.
I have explained that here (you can see the picture of the hardware): I complained and finally we have a Europe update region...

I'm not using bluelink software so I don't know about the rest.

Based on watching this video, it seems to originate in the Korean market.

Almost all the features described in this video are NOT available/applicable to the N.American version of Tucson. :( In fact, the only one that seems to apply is the "phone as a key" feature (which without NFC abilities in Canadian cars, we can't get), PLUS, it seems highly inconvenient if you have to physically take out your phone and hold it against the door handle!

The Bluelink capabilities vary WIDELY from one country to the next. The Canadian version is almost useless compared to the abilities I've seen in discussions and screen captures from our USA neighbours!! :cry:

Absolutely NO ability to record any events in Canada, much less "visualizing recorded events"!

I'm installing Bluelink right now, and I will let you know if the same applies to Spain.

Installed, like yours, most of all functions are useless. Lock/Unlock, Air conditioning status, car statistics, no camera, no access to recorded videos, nothing.
I'm uninstalling right now and removing the authorization for my car as it doesn't bring anything beneficial to me.
