A car manual?
Well... alrighty then.
That's a neat feature as I'm sure it's easier to search through than a PDF. Do you think they'll release the custom app to previous owners with older models. That seems to be a gimmick for newer cars only. I don't own one, just curious.
It's a new model in the US. It has interactive features with video demos of various functions. Nice idea. And for $60K, they throw in the car.
except you don't have to worry about someone stealing a manual. A manual works perfectly in the dead of winter and sub zero temps or in the hot 100+ of summer. A manual can be accidentally dropped. And a manual doesn't need to be charged.
It's a cool idea. And definitely a "perk" - but it's a gimmick at best.
Looks cool! Hyundai is doing a great job building its brand appeal.
WTF? Are you a Hyundai employee or something?
I don't know, but I just don't see the appeal in it. It seems way too gimmicky and just stupid to me. Kids in Africa are dying from starvation, and our dilemma here is whether or not we should get the car that comes with an iPad.
Hmm... admirable sentiment on an iPad forum. You can probably sell the computer you used to type your gripe and feed a couple of hundred kids with the proceeds.
And nobody is having a purchasing dilemma. It's just a creative use of technology.
Well... I can't drive... I failed my test twice... but now I may need to have another attempt at this driving thing!
Yeah cuz thats the only way they'd be able to sell a car is by throwing in an iPad
Better off just buying iPad from Apple if u ask me
Well, first of all, it's a great car (my local dealer had a demo). My wife has a Genesis, which is a similar, but smaller, Hyundai and it's one of the best cars I've driven in that price range.
As far as the iPad "gimmick" goes, it's no doubt an extravagance and a way to distinguish the car from the pack of similar high-priced sedans, but it's actually a forward-thinking step. There are a lot of features on cars these days that need more than a line or two of poorly-translated instruction, so an interactive manual is a welcome addition. Sure, they could just provide an App for the buyer to download, but they're not producing a lot of these anyhow and it does draw attention.
I can't begin to explain how much I loved this post. And how much I agree with it.
Louis CK beat us to the punch. He has a bit where he talks about driving an Infiniti when he could easily drive a Ford Focus and spend the difference on keeping starving African kids alive - but he doesn't.
I almost bought a Rolls-Royce Phantom today until the sales person informed me it didn't have an iPad manual (deal killer). I will check the Bentley dealership tomorrow and if not I'll get a Hyundai.
Nope, Bentley doesn't come with iPad either, just checked, deal breaker for me
