Todays luxury vehicles employ complex technologies and as a consequence their owners manuals have gotten thicker much thicker. For example, the Lexus LS owners manual runs 1,091 pages in length, just shy of the 1,225 pages in Tolstoys War and Peace.

We like to keep things simple at Hyundai, and the high-resolution displays and innovative multi-touch interfaces of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch provide superb platforms for our owners to easily navigate the key features of Equus, says John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “The Equus App is the ultimate owners manual. Interactive text mingles with detailed photos and videos to provide rich and immersive explanations of Equus technology, in a very intuitive way.
