  1. Great find, thanks for that, working @ 4 V could be very beneficial at a time when it would be most useful.
    Any link to this product?

    I mentioned in another thread that a simple BLUELINK Feature addition would be really convenient - to show the current VOLTAGE of the 12v Battery in the VEHICLE STATUS display. If anyone thinks this is a good idea, you can send that Feature request to Customercare@hyundaibluelink.com

    Maybe if enough ask for it they'll add this to a future update to BLUELINK. IMHO It's kind of ridiculous that we're on our own out here, buying various "monitors" and hacks for something that THEY already have the information for us.

    My wife's Kona is getting three (software update) recalls taken care of this Friday morning.

    Have folks temporarily removed their BM2 unit from the 12 volt battery prior to bringing the vehicle into the dealership for recall/software updates?

    Thanks.
     
  6. Yup, figured it best that they don't see it.

  8. I did not because I wanted to document the beating my aux battery got while under the knife. No one mentioned its presence and I doubt they even noticed, being as it's wrapped behind the battery.

    Well, I guess I'll wait and see how I feel Friday morning. :confused:

    The service visit was done this morning and I kept the monitor in place.

  11. Pretty much consistent with KiwiME chart, additionally shows recovery after the initial plunge.
