BAY CITY, Mich. -- We've all forgotten to let a friend or family member know that we arrived safely at our destination. Chevrolet recently rolled out a new feature on their popular myChevrolet mobile app that helps to ease worries about our loved ones and make the process of checking-in much more convenient, called Vehicle Locate. It allows Chevy drivers to send out automated text alerts directly to an indicated contact(s) phone when their connected vehicle arrives and departs from an address.
Vehicle Locate replaces the previous Family Link Service, which was entirely web-based. When setting up Vehicle Locate, you have the option of creating a boundary radius as wide as 20 miles or indicate specific destinations. Then you can select up to 10 people to send an alert to once your vehicle has entered or left the area, with each having to opt-in to receive it.
“At Chevrolet, we aim to make our drivers’ lives easier through smart and purposeful technologies,” says Alejandra Gonzalez, product manager, Remote Services, Chevrolet. “Vehicle Locate provides both drivers and their loved ones with peace of mind in a variety of different drive-related scenarios.”
The Vehicle Locate feature is available to owners of 2012 or newer Chevrolet vehicles in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The service is a part of the OnStar Remote Access Plan, which includes other convenience features such as remote key fob and on-demand vehicle diagnostics for $14.99/month.
