Very, very slow and needs a lot of work

The app works *most* of the time, but very slowly. On a 400mb/s 8ms latency connection, it takes 30 seconds to 4 minutes to do such tasks as start the vehicle, close doors, or simply to refresh. Since my connection is not the issue, this appears to be an app and/or server issue on the part of Genesis. Running iOS 13.1.2 on an iPhone Xs.

Dealers upload service records to the Genesis portal. However, you can’t see the services performed when clicking “Service History Tool” in the app. Results are always blank. Instead service history can only be seen on the desktop Genesis owners site. However “Services History Tool” does let you add your own service records, but those are NOT reflected in the desktop site. It’s almost like they have separate databases for the app and the desktop site that are not connected.

Starting the car remotely makes it flash it’s lights, calling unnecessary attention to the car, posing a safety risk, especially in sketchier parts of the city.

The car itself is great so far, but this app is utter trash.

Hyundai/Kia/Genesis need to make quality of software as much of a priority as that of the car.

Good, needs improvement

I love being able to start my car from inside a building and have it cooled off when I get to it. Usually it works. Sometimes it doesn’t - like when I’ve forgotten to lock my car, but sometimes I don’t know why it didn’t.

My biggest complaint is that when you start it remotely, the blinkers blink until you get there. I’ve contacted them about this. They say it’s so you and others know your car is running. I say it’s a safety hazard - if I’m at the mall at night by myself, I shouldn’t have to advertise that I’m coming to my car. I can’t start my car in the early morning when I’m heading out, because I don’t want these very bright blinkers disturbing the neighbors who are still in bed. Also, I have people telling me about it all the time - “Your car’s blinking.” When I renewed the service over the phone, I mentioned this to the CSR. She says people tell her this all the time, but those who make decisions about this won’t budge. They could certainly make it an option that you can deselect, as they have with the defrost option.

As for the car’s status it shows, it’s often inaccurate. It will indicate that my car is running when it’s not, etc.

Genesis 80 remote start disappointing

First I understand that Genesis is trying to attach the luxury vehicle moniker to this vehicle. However to accomplish this, one of the things that needs a lot of work , is this app. I am very tech savvy so this review is not user error.
The app is very slow. I find that when it works there is a 45 sec to 1 min lag time. There is a more than occasional failure rate in starting the car for a variety of reasons , from server busy to other reasons not specified. In addition it only activates the defrost or blower, and not the seats or steering wheel. I have a Mercedes Lexus and Jeep. They all activate multiple functions in the car, and the Jeep particularly will activate different function based on the external temperature. This app needs to be refined , with faster reaction time if people are going to view this vehicle as special. The technology is no longer just available on high end cars, and many lower level vehicles operate much more efficiently.
