Onstar announces mobile application for Android and Iphone users that allows them to monitor their car, find its location, set off the alarm, start it, and unlock the doors from a cell phone.

The announcement was made pertaining to the Chevy Volt and then recently updated to include nearly all 2011 cars equiped with an activated OnStar system.

Expect the App to be available in fall 2010.



I wonder if this will work with 2010?

Somepeople have complained about the range of the remote start. This will solve that completely.

That is completely bogus.

What could possibly be different between the 2011 and 2010 OnStar systems that would prevent the 2010 from having these features?

I believe 2011 has the new Onstar 9.0 edition. That would do it. Some 2010 (late production) may just have it............?

I had heard that the on-board Onstar equipment is different...
