Overview:

 

 

The 2023 Hyundai Palisade is the first Hyundai model to include Hyundai Digital Key 2, which allows the Palisade to be unlocked, locked, and started with your iPhone or select Samsung Devices. The system also allows the primary user to share Digital Key access with three other users. You can even send someone a “shared key” from clear across the country.

 

 

With Digital Key 2, you unlock the car by holding your smartphone against the driver-door handle. Once inside, just place the phone in the wireless charging tray, push the start button and go.

 

 

 

Hyundai Digital Key is currently compatible with select Samsung and iPhone phones. Check with your device manufacturer for specific device and software requirements.

 

 

 

You still get two proximity keys with the Palisade, which provide passive entry and keyless start ability, but with Digital Key 2, you won’t need them to operate the car. You can also purchase  an NFC Card Key that can fit inside a billfold, and substitute for your phone for valet services, leaving the Palisade to be serviced, or use in case your phone runs out of power.



Possibly the most useful Digital Key feature is the ability to enable vehicle operating access to family or friends at any time. They key is shared by visiting Apple Wallet or Samsung Pass app then sharing a key to a contact using the messaging app. When they accept, they can operate your Palisade. You can have up to three Shared Keys, and the primary and secondary users can set up their own presets for driver-seat and mirror position, climate, audio preferences and more. As the primary user, you can control when a Shared Key can be used. You can also end a Shared Key’s capability at any time by using Apple Wallet or Samsung Pass app.

 

 

Making its debut on the Palisade, Hyundai Digital Key 2 is the latest advance in vehicle & smartphone integration, and can be expected as a feature on future newly introduced or redesigned Hyundai models.
