My 2017 G80 Ultimate is now 3 years old and a number of things expire like remote start, connected services etc. you CANNOT renew just the remote start feature for $100/ year but must rewew all services file $300/year. Ridiculous - wonder how folks will sign up for that.

Well at least you got three years...when I got the R-Soec, 3.8 and 5.0 I only got three months with each of them!
Those services where lovely while they lasted, but not worth $600 per year for my current pair! :eek:

I’m simply saying with an a la carte menu Genesis would have gotten $100 from me for the remote start. Under the current system they get zippo!

Kurmudjon....Have these things expired or are they about to expire? My expiry date is in Dec and I have no intention of renewing any of the Genesis Connect services...although I may miss the Genesis app which needs Connect services to work. I also do not plan on renewing and paying for the trial SiriusXM Traffic and Data services. I haven't used these once. Do you know if you are notified by Genesis or SiriusXM that these services are expiring? I wouldn't want any of them automatically renewed and billed. Do you know how these expirations work?

You will be notified. Genesis should not have your CC info. Sirius would have it if you signed up after the trial but they notify you in advance.
EdP...I know that much. I want to hear what actually happens as opposed to suppose to happen.

They HAVE expired and got an email to that effect. Genesis app still works for scheduling service. Think Sirius XM Traffic and Data continues on for a bit as I still have it but never use it. Sirius music dropped off for me long ago and did not renew. I use Pandora via Bluetooth which still works just fine :) Only thing I will miss is remote start which I used occasionally. Don’t believe I will miss any of those other features after a bit. Good luck :)

One of the features I like and use on occasion is the "send to car" for directions that is in the last $100. Nice but not at $15 a use that it would be. I'll be looking at aftermarket remotes.
I agree. The “send to car” directions feature is the only thing I’ll miss after my 3-year trial period ends on my ‘19 Santa Fe. I never use remote start. I never used any Bluelink features on my ‘12 Genesis either, nor do I miss them. HOWEVER, if these services were priced much more affordably I might be interested in keeping them. I’d certainly pay $50/yr for everything.

It's a cost/benefit analysis. Each person decides what they are willing to pay for a service/product . I wish I only paid for the cable channels I watch, but that ain't going to happen. I will not be renewing these connected services or pay for map/naGivation ;) updates when my "free" period expires. I'll begrudgingly continue to renew my XM satellite radio subscription.

Don’t forget there are alternatives to XM radio. For example, I have an unlimited data package with T-Mobile, so I can stream audio from numerous services and websites. AccuRadio is just one. Then there’s the thumbdrive. XM’s days are numbered.

Agree that XM radio is becoming less attractive, but in my case, it was difficult to resist a sweet deal, $60 with traffic on the 3.8 Ultimate for the entire year, and since 5.0 was on the same account, it got the XM subscription for free 😂.

But for me between NewsON, iHeart Radio, Prime music, Waze apps with CarPlay, XM is not needed, however the Mrs is happy since she got her news and traffic while she is on the go...
