“This is a great example of how we are focusing on smart technologies that address customers’ needs,” said Chris Perry, vice president, Chevrolet marketing. “With myChevrolet and Onstar MyLink apps, customers can search their owners’ manual, find their parking spot, and even unlock their car – right from their phone.”
The applications, which are also offered for Buick, GMC and Cadillac models, offer features that can be entered intro three categories: location-based services, vehicle-specific information, and OnStar connectivity features.
“The location-based services include a parking reminder that allows drivers to save their parking location to a GPS-enabled map, set a timer to track how much time they have on the parking meter, and even add a note or photo with details about their parking location."
"Vehicle-specific information is accessible after scanning the vehicle identification number using the smart-phone camera. These features include searchable content for the most-commonly accessed information in the owner’s manual, such as directions saving radio presets,” explained the press release.
In addition to that, owners can use OnStar’s connection to the vehicle to send remote vehicle commands such a locking and unlocking the doors and starting the engine, also being able to access key diagnostic information, including fuel tank range, tire pressure and lifetime average miles per gallon.
You can download the myChevrolet and OnStar Mylink free of charge from the Apple and the Android websites.
