The services currently available through the myChevrolet and OnStar RemoteLink® apps have been combined to offer customers easier mobile access to roadside assistance, parking reminders, owner’s manual content, vehicle diagnostics, Wi-Fi® hotspot management and key fob commands such as remote start and door unlock. The myChevrolet app, which has a new, customizable user experience, will be a platform for the growth of future mobile services.
The myChevrolet app is the most comprehensive vehicle app available – and will support the ownership experience over the life of the vehicle. We have integrated the OnStar RemoteLink features into the myChevrolet app, this way we create a one-stop-app for owners to manage their vehicle with one user profile and unified log-in.
OnStar RemoteLink allows owners with an OnStar account to use their smartphone to unlock/lock doors, activate the horn and lights, and start the engine from any distance. Users can also check vehicle diagnostics such as fuel range, tire pressure and oil life, receive personalized retail offers through the AtYourService feature, and send directions to the vehicle’s navigation system. Customers with an OnStar 4G LTE-equipped vehicle can manage their Wi-Fi hotspot and data plan.
Chevrolet owners used the OnStar RemoteLink app more than 50 million times in 2015, totaling more than 6 million requests in the month of November alone. The myChevrolet app has integrated the RemoteLink features while still offering the ability to contact roadside assistance, schedule maintenance, access the vehicle owner manual and set parking reminders. Users are able to customize the app home screen by ordering the tabs they use most often and removing those they don’t use.
The inclusion of the RemoteLink features into the myChevrolet app is part of an overarching redesign of the Chevrolet Owner Center experience to make vehicle management and ownership seamless. myChevrolet App allow customers to manage their OnStar account, along with tracking vehicle service history, scheduling maintenance and checking vehicle information.
The myChevrolet app is available on select 2010 and newer retail Chevrolet vehicles in the U.S. and Canada. To access the full set of app features, users will need to activate (or have an active) their OnStar service and agree to the Terms and Conditions.
