I was just on the 2023 Venue Canadian site and noticed it looks like the Bluelink is no longer with the Venue...my 2022 Ultimate came with a 3 year free Bluelink...is that the same in the US or any other countries?

Sorry, you are right. I thought for sure I picked 2023 but guess not.
I wonder if there was a charge for the 3 year bluelink that Hyundai had to absorb and have canceled it to same money.

I found this...
Hyundai Blue Link
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Hyundai Blue Link (also branded as Genesis Connected Services) is a vehicle system that uses a mobile app from Hyundai to allow the user to retrieve information about their vehicle and perform some basic remote operations. Blue Link functionality varies based on the type of vehicle, as well as the type of cell service modem the vehicle is equipped with. In the United States, the Blue Link system debuted on the 2012 Hyundai Veloster as standard equipment, and has become an available feature on most Hyundai models sold since then. The service currently costs $99 a year and can be used for roadside service, information about the vehicle's performance, and remote start, stop, lock or unlock their Hyundai automobile.
Connectivity
Smartphones can connect to Hyundai Blue Link over Bluetooth or a USB cable with the Hyundai Blue Link mobile app. The in-car Hyundai Blue Link software checks for updates wirelessly everytime the vehicle turns on, keeping the included applications up to date.[1]

When Blue Link first launched, the connectivity was provided by a joint relationship of Aeris Communications, Inc. and Sprint Corp.[2] On January 21, 2014 Hyundai announced it had selected Verizon Enterprise Solutions with integration provided by Opentext.[3] The Opentext Business Network platform also supports other car manufacturers such as Land Rover/Jaguar, Daimler, Ford, General Motors and Mitsubishi. Hyundai announced that starting in 2022 model year 2012-2018 vehicles would no have Blue Link support due to the discontinuation of 2G and 3G cell service.[4][5]

Surely there is a charge since it uses cellular telephone service to communicate. There would have to be a contract with a Canadian service provider. Could be that the contract fell through but I think Bluelink is still offered on other models so it's probably not that. Either they dropped it from the 2023 in Canada or they mistakenly didn't put it in the advertising.
Oddly, they are just releasing Bluelink on the Venue Elite in Australia.

Bluelink is still advertised as included on the Venue Limited. Here it is on the Hyundai USA site.

Maybe the websites just haven't been updated for 2023. The USA link shows 2022 but the page shows 2023.
