Hyundai N Track Maps updated with more Australian circuits

0

Hyundai always says its N cars are made (and warrantied) for the track, and the updated N Track Maps software launching this week suggests it practises what it preaches.

In some ways it brings a Gran Turismo racing sim to life.

Track Maps uses the satellite navigation system to work out when you’re approaching a given track in your i20 N, i30 Sedan N, or Kona N, and subsequently displays the circuit layout.

Functions include an automated lap timer triggered each time you cross the start line, in place of a lap timer button. This “frees up brain capacity for hitting each apex”, reckons Hyundai.

Moreover, the position of the vehicle on the track is also shown in the display, along with live lap timing and a log of previous lap times. Lap timing is also displayed in the driver’s digital cluster.

There’s also data-logging including an onboard acceleration timer; g-force meter; and power, torque and turbocharger boost gauges.

Track Maps debuted in the Kona N and is now available in the i20 N and i30 Sedan N. Unfortunately the i30 Hatch N uses different infotainment hardware and misses out.

The feature initially covered Sydney Motorsport Park, but now includes many of Australia’s pre-eminent tracks.

The latest Track Maps software is available at update.hyundai.com, so there’s no need to visit a dealer. This and subsequent software updates can be downloaded onto a USB and uploaded by the user into a compatible Hyundai N model’s navigation/multimedia system.

The process only takes a few minutes and the updates come without cost, Hyundai added.

“Every Hyundai N model has an innate sense of fun and driver involvement engineered into it,” claims Hyundai Motor Company Australia CEO Ted Lee.

“Now, that’s complemented by the Track Maps software that can recognise and automatically record lap times around a host of Australian racing circuits, to prompt the driver when the opportunity for driving fun arises,” he said.
