OnStar MyLink on Most GM Cars

Undoubtedly, OnStar is one of the best telematics solutions providers currently on the market. With an offer ranging from 911 call assists to providing Facebook updates right into your car, every single service that has been launched by OnStar over the years has proven to be a hit.

So is the case with the latest technology made available to the American consumers, the OnStar mobile apps, generically called MyLink. Offering several new features for GM cars and smartphone owners, the MyLink has been ordered so far by 56,000 active users.

MyLink provides the owners with the possibility of using their voice to initiate phone calls and select radio stations or media from portable MP3 players and smartphones or USB connectivity with flash memory capability. It also comes equipped with Pandora Internet radio and Gracenote. For more details on the system, you can take a look at the telematics provider's official page.

Starting today, the number of users for the system is expected to rise exponentially, after OnStar announced it has added MyLink on the majority of the models sold by GM - Cadillac DTS, Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Buick Enclave, Lucerne, GMC Acadia, Yukon, Yukon XL, Chevrolet Avalanche, Impala, Suburban, Tahoe and Traverse.

“I think it’s safe to say we are very pleased with how drivers have not only downloaded, but interacted with our mobile app,” said Sam Mancuso, chief marketing officer for OnStar.

“This overwhelming reaction has confirmed our plans to continue to enhance the mobile app, including the potential development of a destination search and send-to-car feature.”
