2009 Hyundai Genesis: Plenty of Time to Pair a Bluetooth Phone

September 24, 2009

Jumping from car to car, we pair our phones with a lot of Bluetooth systems. Some are simple while others are simply a pain. Leaving the office yesterday, it was a piece of cake to sync my BlackBerry with the Bluetooth system in the 2009 Hyundai Genesis. And I discovered a feature I wish others had.

The in-dash display showed me exactly how much time I had before the pairing process timed out: a full two minutes. Compared to other systems that give you no indication of how much time you have to pair a phone -- and, even worse, give you very little time to complete the process before having to completely start over -- it's a small convenience that's a huge help.

It shows that sometimes it's the small stuff that counts -- and why the Genesis gives more expensive luxury sedans a run for their money.
