The most popular feature of the vehicle remote app1 — in a landslide win — is the ability to start your vehicle 2 from wherever you get a signal. Getting into a toasty ride on those bitter cold mornings or ensuring your car is cooled down on a hot summer day is quite lovely because, let’s face it, comfort is key.
But this amazing little app can do way more than start your car:
1. If you’re a hands-on, proactive driver, use the Vehicle Status card to check fuel tank levels, remaining oil life and tire pressure (requires tire pressure monitoring system). Even monitor your driving efficiency with an estimated miles per gallon for each trip.
2. While you’re out and about, use the AtYourService3 card to find valuable offers near you or along your route. You can redeem offers at coffee shops, hotels, retailers and more. You can even secure a parking spot in advance. All you need is your mobile device and RemoteLink.
3. Forget where you parked or need directions on the fly? Vehicle Locate4 allows you to pinpoint your car’s exact location on a map with just the touch of a button. Or send a destination to your car and use Turn-by-Turn Navigation5 to get you there.
4. Now the services you know and love are located within the updated Key Fob services card in the app. Remote start your engine (if equipped), lock and unlock your doors,6 and flash your lights and honk your horn from anywhere.
5. If your vehicle is connected by OnStar 4G LTE,7 you can use your mobile device to manage your vehicle’s built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot8 and monitor data usage from anywhere.
6. Drivers who like to talk will enjoy the Hands-Free Calling9 card. Quickly look up your vehicle’s phone number or keep tabs on your remaining minutes and when they expire.
7. Help is always just one touch away. Connect with an OnStar Advisor, contact Roadside Assistance10 or call your preferred dealer to schedule an appointment, all from one convenient place on your vehicle mobile app.
