    Blue Max and Eco Drive

    Has anyone been able to get any reward points yet?

    I have been able to get 37,500 as my best Blue Max score, anyone got more?

    I've done a few runs between 40,000 and 41,000. This is in a rural area, hilly terrain, 50-55 mph.

    Just go to the top of a mountain and glide downhill for a perfect 60,000 if you want to win

    Oh and I haven't gotten any reward points yet. I really hate blue link. It is a good idea but a huge turnoff that it isn't fully functional.

    Agree, seems to me Blue Link is not fully functional yet, I hate something that's half finished yet released to the public. Will not renew the subscription unless all is working.

    SkyriderAR - when did you get your point? Maybe it became functional today?

    what the heck do the points get you anyways? do you actually get rewards for getting your score up? If its just a video game number who cares? Its like saying I got 3897127278689 points at an arcade, what did you win? Nothing? If I could actually earn something (of value) I may care a little more.. I don't want a green leaf hippie hat, or a shirt saying' I'm eco friendly either - offer up some iPods and a auto dimming mirror and I will hyper mile the car to get some free stuff... Just my $.02

    I'm a little lost. This Blue Max showed up on my media screen today, and I have no clue what it is. I just got Blue Link. Is it connected? How is it used? I've combed every manual that came with my little Boston Red Veloster, only to find that there is absolutely NO information listed regarding this function. Can anyone help me out? Explain it to me? I would appreciate it.

    I agree with you - there's isn't a single bit of info on it. The best I can tell is that it's a game to see if you can drive economically to get a higher score. The only benefit I can see at all to it is that it kinda acts like an instataneous fuel economy gauge, which strangely enough, the V doesn't come with.
    Other than that, it seems completely useless to me.
