Better than the first version, but mostly redundant next to the OnStar app., BUT big props for allowing me to customize the dashboard, because I will NEVER use the parking feature or my preferred dealership, or hahaha Nav... Because I can OK Google all that. It's a big improvement however. Do us all a solid though.... And make some Android widgets for the keyfob? That would be useful. There are widgets to disable alarm systems, I don't think the security risk is that big a deal nowadays, since we all lock our phones.
This app doesn't update my cars info. It still has the same mileage, gas, and tire pressure from the first day I bought the car and hasn't shown the accurate info in the last 2 weeks of driving it. I don't even know what the point of downloading this app was other to waste up my space on my phone. The ONLY decent thing about it is that you can lock and unlock it from the app but even then it should let you know whether or not it's already locked.
Not as helpful as it should be. App tells you how much electric range you have in your Chevy Volt's batteries and how much gasoline range you have in your Volt's gas tank, but not the number of gallons in the tank. The method of getting the app to extract the information from the car is not intuitive so there will be lots of calls for tech support from new Volt owners. The OnStar app gives you the number of gallons in the tank, but I was told by a tech support person that the OnStar app was old and no longer supported. Neither app gives the miles per gallon when using gasoline. That is automatically given for ordinary cars, but you have to calculate it by hand with a plug in hybrid like my Volt. The app should detect that it is talking to a plug in hybrid and automatically give both the lifetime miles per gallon using the total mileage as the numerator and the lifetime miles per gallon using the miles driven on gasoline engine power as the numerator. Both apps overestimate the range available with battery and with gasoline backup by about ten percent. Anyone using these apps to estimate available range should subtract ten percent from the numbers to get a reliable estimate.
Loaded the app with the dealer's help and was initially impressed. Remote start, maintenance and the like showed on screen. Now all I have are inconsequential pages. Uninstalled twice with no luck in rebooting to screens shown on the Goggle Play site. Sorry to say that I will uninstall for a third time with no going back.
New to the app but not new to Chevrolet. I've owned three chevy vehicles this is the first I've been able to use this app base features. Not to impressed at all. Tip: GM you should update the app or vehicle system to show door status, lock or unlocked. Window status and/or sunroof status open or closed, be able to remote in and close. I understand there might be a safety issue with the windows but with the doors how come the app doesn't show if they are locked or not. Well its still easy to use it could have more advance features for those of us who like to tinker with buttons.
I love this app! So cool to be able to connect to my car through my phone. Granted, my previous car was a 2002 and these things were just not possible back then. I can't believe that I can unlock my car with my phone should I lock the keys in it. If I could make a suggestion, I would add a section where one could purchase genuine, vehicle specific Chevrolet accessories for their new car. I'm looking for accessories and am forced to look at third party sites like Amazon and eBay to find them. Love the app, tough. And the Owner's manual is super helpful, too.
