In today’s technology-driven world, leaving the house without your cell phone is devastating for many. And now that millions of available cell phone apps ease finding the answers for many, why not coordinate it your vehicle?
Leveraging OnStar’s technology, smartphones, iPhones and blackberries will soon be able to control key functions on select 2011 Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC vehicles. Key functions include:
- Remote vehicle start
- Activate horn & light panic mode
- Lock/unlock doors
- Fuel tank level & range read
- Remaining oil life read
- Current & recommended tire pressure read
Yes folks, your key fob is slowly turning into a thing of the past… Now drivers can be far away from their vehicle and yet still activate these functions without even using their keys!
“We’re working aggressively to bring the Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick and GMC applications to market as soon as possible,” says Joel Ewanick, vice president, GM Marketing. “Because we know that each brand’s customers have different tastes, wants and needs, the apps will be very specifically tailored to offer them the services they value most, leveraging these innovative OnStar features as a compelling mutual foundation.”
The apps are expected to roll-out in the coming months. Stay tuned for more information. But, first, check out this brief demo video on the link below.
