It's more than an augmented reality manual. It's a veritable human-centered, interactive relationship between you and your Genesis vehicle seldom seen even in the luxury segment.

Now available for 2017 Genesis G80 and G90 models via the Apple® App Store and Google Play®, and soon to appear for 2018 models, Genesis Virtual Guide will enable you to use your compatible smartphone or tablet to acquire how-to information on quick repairs and maintenance, take a user-friendly tour of your Genesis vehicle's features, and more.

The automaker culled content from a gamut of quality and consumer survey results to produce its step up from the common owner's manual. Genesis Virtual Guide is a comprehensive informational library that includes approximately 135 how-to videos and 25 3D overlay images, to be sure. But what amazed us here at Jim Ellis Genesis was the experience.

Simply use the guide and your device's camera to scan the relevant area of your Genesis vehicle, whether it's your 2017 G80's 3.8-liter V6 engine, the interior of your 2017 G90 5.0 Ultimate, your sedan's exterior, or its instrument cluster. 2D and 3D tracking technology works in concert to then deliver in-depth info on particular Genesis vehicle parts and areas as well as how to proceed.

Genesis Virtual Guide not only covers drive-time elements like how to set Smart Cruise Control, the proper Bluetooth® phone pairing steps, and what different warning indicators mean. It also tackles a huge array of upkeep procedures, from how to service engine oil, brake and windshield fluid, air filters, and your Genesis sedan's fuse box to jump-starting your battery, installing a spare tire, and more. Plus, a complete version of your Genesis owner’s manual is also included in the app, should you prefer a quick textual reference.

But the best way to truly explore all that a 2017 or 2018 Genesis vehicle, from the well-appointed Genesis G80 to the apex Genesis G90, is to step behind the wheel here at Jim Ellis Genesis. The luxury ride aficionados here at our 5785 Peachtree Industrial Blvd. showroom in Atlanta, GA will be happy to introduce you to the seamless extension of your travels that is the Genesis ride.
