Update killed my vehicle connection!!


Ever since I installed the update yesterday, my vehicle is no longer communicating with my phone application. I went in to initially get myself some navigation directions and it would not send them to my car and I was receiving an error message that said unable to communicate with vehicle. I tried again and got the same results. I then went into refresh my vehicle diagnostics and tire pressure and fuel level on the application and I received the same error message stating unable to locate vehicle.

Considering I am paying a monthly fee for my OnStar Sarah, I am definitely not happy with the fact I am no longer able to use either the on star or the Chevrolet app which will show me essentially everything on star does. Please look into this and get back to me. It would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance for everything you’re able to do to fix my issue Also, before you start having me diagnose the problem, I wanted you to know I tried turning off my phone and turning it back on. I also tried deleting the applications and reinstalling them. I made sure all the Vin numbers and any other number needed was there as well and accurate.



I'm not sure why all the negative reviews. This app works great with all my Chevys. It could be specific vehicle types like others mentioned, but it could also be people didn't read the specifics. Just as a heads up, remote start only works with vehicles that have a dealership installed OEM remote start. If you don't have remote start equipped, obviously it won't work. But more importantly, if you have an aftermarket system, like viper, or roswell, then it won't work. It has to be the GM official, as the software can't just work with anything. If you don't have remote start, but you have remote start on your key fob, then check with your dealer to make sure it's official and activated. Don't blame the app if your dealer scammed you.

More importantly I'm dropping some stars because they won't add an Apple Watch app for this. It's stupid. They have the technology. It's there, but they just don't care. BMW had it, a bunch of other companies had it, now even Hyundai. Maybe I should trade in my GM for a car that can keep up with simple tech. Or at least until GM drops OnStar for a company that can keep up.

Good concept, but needs a few fixes

Alan Volt

I love being able to remote start my Volt to pre-heat or cool the cabin.

This app logs me out several times per month due to app crashes and server problems, requiring me to login over and over. Please fix this by storing the credentials somewhere safe (perhaps on the settings page). When the app recovers from the crash, don't prompt me for another login, just use the cached credentials instead.

Please add Touch ID support for Apple devices, to be used as the app login, and in place of a pin number when remote starting the car. I just saw a TV ad that Volvo is using that already.

When the car has been remote started, start a countdown timer on the app showing how many minutes it will be before the car is shut down automatically, or at least show a status on the app of whether the car is running or not. Also, if the car is capable, have the app display the temperature inside the car and outside.

An older version of the app from roughly a year ago used to open almost instantly, showing the status that it most recently pulled from the car. Now the app takes several seconds to open each time. Please revert back to an instant open.

I love the ability to push navigation directly to my car, but as other reviewers have mentioned, please make the backend servers more reliable.

In general this is a good app, that can be great once you fix a few things, and add a few new features.
