Hyundai to host anti-theft software upgrade event in Baltimore



TOWSON, MD—The Baltimore County Police Department, in partnership with Hyundai and neighboring law enforcement agencies, is partnering to provide anti-theft software upgrades to Hyundai owners with vehicles manufactured between 2011 and 2022 with a turn-key ignition. In addition to the free upgrade, each owner will be offered a steering wheel lock as an extra layer of security.

The three-day event, scheduled from December 15 through December 17, will be held at M&T Bank Stadium in downtown Baltimore. During the event, Lot H will be transformed into a mobile service center where Hyundai owners with eligible vehicles can come and meet with a specially trained mobile service technician on-site. The software upgrade is expected to take less than twenty minutes to complete. A heated mobile lobby will be available on the premises to accommodate Hyundai owners while they wait.

“I urge all residents who own an eligible Hyundai to take advantage of this free software upgrade,” said Baltimore County Police Chief Robert McCullough. “Earlier this year, the Baltimore County Police Department, in partnership with Hyundai, began to distribute free steering wheel locks to residents; providing the anti-theft software upgrade to residents is one more preventative anti-theft measure we can offer our community members to help protect their property.”
