OnStar and Google Partner On Mobile App

OnStar is working with Google on a mobile application that will enable Chevy Volt customers to have one of the most connected vehicle experiences. OnStar will demo the product at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco from May 19-May 20.

“While OnStar will never lose sight of our core focus on safety and security, this relationship is an example of how we’re evolving our leadership position in connected vehicle technology,” stated OnStar President Chris Preuss. “What we’re talking about today is only the beginning.”

A navigation tab is being added to the Chevy Volt mobile app on Android smartphones. When pressing the navigation tab, you can see the current location of your car and how far away from the car you are at. Voice-guided directions is available on the OnStar mobile app as well.
