OnStar RemoteLink App Sees Record Number of Remote Starts
In the type of arctic weather that we have seen this winter, a remote car start can be your saving grace. It looks like a lot of people quickly realized that as soon as temperatures plummeted, because the OnStar RemoteLink App saw a record number of remote start requests! Just this past January, the app was downloaded more times than any previous January on record, and two significant records followed for remote start and vehicle data requests through the app. On January 7th a single-day record was set with more than 200,000 requests sent across all GM brands, followed by a single-hour record set on January 28th with over 20,000 requests! Notably, compared to the owners of any other GM vehicle, Chevy Cruze owners used the app the most, making 2,909,674 requests through the app, 55 percent of which were for remote start!
Ready to download the app? With OnStar's RemoteLink mobile app you can use the remote start feature to start up your car no matter where you are. Your vehicle will remain locked until you turn the key in the ignition. Plus, you will also have access to your vehicle's diagnostic information through the app so you can easily check the tire pressure or oil level to make sure your vehicle is running smoothly. Just make sure your OnStar subscription is up to date in order to take advantage of the convenient app!
While we hope this is the last of the cold weather, the RemoteLink application is beneficial in hot and humid weather as well, cooling your vehicle off before you get inside.
