New OnStar Apps for Android and iPhone
We can write hundreds of blogs about the capabilities of the excellent General Motors cars, trucks and SUVs available at Don Wheaton. However, we would be remiss if we didn’t spend time explaining why the available OnStar system is easily one of the best features of any GM vehicle found in our showroom. In the early days, OnStar was just a blue button on your rearview mirror that gave you directions or the voice to remind you to have a back seat passenger buckle up. Just as the rest of the world of automotive technology has progressed and improved, so have the capabilities of OnStar. In response to a record-setting number of users in December 2014, the company has released new OnStar apps for Android and iPhone.
To put things in the simplest of terms, the new OnStar apps for Android and iPhone will provide customers with more information. Most, if not all, of the same features that people have relied on with the previous version of the app will remain in place. However, the new apps will now provide greater access to account details that were previously only available by phone or by logging on to a standard website through a desktop or laptop. In response to the addition of 4G LTE hotspot, the new OnStar apps for Android and iPhone will allow the customer to have total control over the hotspot. If your vehicle has the new internet hotspot, you will be able activate or disable the hotspot as well as change the hotspot’s name and password.
Some of the other uses for the new OnStar apps for Android and iPhone include remotely starting or stopping the vehicle’s engine, as well operating the locks for the appropriately equipped vehicle. Some features of the OnStar application are free to all users and some will require a paid subscription. The OnStar app is also available for BlackBerry and Windows Phone users.
