Mildly better than its crappy former self
First and foremost: Stop clamoring about how this is a "free" app. It's not. You might download IT for free but you pay GM/OnStar a PREMIUM for access to their services in your car and on this mediocre app. That being said, I expect way more for what I paid for my 2014 vehicle and in monthly charges. So no, I'm not here to cry about how my old car doesn't have compatibility. In the original marketing materials, GM chose to advertise the features of OnStar available and touted the iPhone app being a huge part of the new features. The new UI is nicer but the fonts are frighteningly small on even on the magnified res iPhone6. This is especially the case on the remote denoting the car has been started. Why is it microscopic!!! Hate that I have to hit a button and answer "send route to vehicle" four different times before it actually happens. Unfortunately, there are still times where the app says the car can't be started remotely while it's parked in exactly the same place each time. Coincidentally, this happened on THE three coldest days this winter. Thanks GM!
It's a waste of time and space on your phone!!
The only thing this app is good for is to lock/unlock my doors and sounding the horn. The cars status is incorrect and doesn't update unless I delete the app and start over. It says I have 71 miles until empty on gas right now. I just filled my tank up last night. It says my miles are lower than they actually are. The tire pressure is so far off its pathetic. And it says these values were collected from my last drive. Total crap because I drive it everyday and it has a date that was 3 days ago. The map service is crap. I had to press send route 4 times because it kept giving me an error. I gave up. And then about an hour after I gave up and my phone was in my pocket, my onstar navigation started after I figured out where I was going and I was 10 minutes away from where I wanted to go. If you're going to charge me for having onstar then at least use the money to make the app work correctly. I can lock/unlock my car from my key fob.
Works but cumbersome and slow
I like the features in the RemoteLink App. Specifically being able to check Fuel, Oil, and tire pressures, and downloading directions are all neat features. Remote start was the selling point for me since I am generally blocks away from where I am parked. However, the system is slow and the interface requires several screens to navigate through to perform the action I want to take. Also, I have two different trucks and I frequently change back and forth. For me, being able to efficiently switch back and forth would be a major plus at the key fob screen rather than exiting all the way back to the accounts menu. I also keep my phone locked at all times, so me being able to control the password/PIN requirement within the app would be much better.
