Is This The Future Of Owners’ Manuals?


How cool would it be to be able to do this?

Automakers are focusing on packing its vehicles withtechnology, which may or may not be a good thing. But Hyundai’s latest piece oftechnology is something that we would enjoy using. Previously, the automaker convertedthe traditional owner’s manual into an iOS app and then put the manual in thevehicle’s touchscreen. In itslatest venture, Hyundai is looking to once again change the way owners interactwith their vehicles and is attempting to get rid of the traditional owners' manual for good.

Hyundai is planning on launching the Hyundai Virtual Guideapp later this year, which will be able to recognize over 45 features and offermore information on maintenance, repair and even use when relevant parts of thevehicle are viewed through a camera on a mobile device.
