Has anyone use iPhone OnStar app with 2011 SRX. If so what are your thoughts?

Yes, I have. It's ok - depends on what you're expecting it to do. It does unlock the vehicle, activate the remote starter, etc. It will show you fuel levels, tire pressure, etc.

The Cadillac branded app seems to be less useful and I get the impression it exists to gather information. Its real functionality comes via the OnStar app anyway. So I deleted the Cadillac app.

Something specific you're looking for that I could test out for you?

I like it! The SRX is my wife's car, and the app let's me check oil, tire pressure, and fuel level remotely. We also lost our car in a sea of vehicles at NASCAR, and I remotely set off the horn thru the app (we were out of range of the fob).

If you have an iPhone, downloading the app is a no brainer, since it's free.

If I think I forgot to lock the car when shopping, the MyLink iPhone app will lock it from anywhere in the shopping center. The good part is MyLink confirms when the vehicle locks.
