App Reviews

  • Locked out of vehicle

    Since the new update the remote commands to lock/unlock the doors has been buggy. Today, after leaving key in my jacket in the car I locked the doors using the app and went into the gym. About an hour later when I came out I launched the app to unlock the doors and it just kept spinning and spinning but the doors never opened. I closed the app and tried again but still no response. I rebooted my phone just to clear it and launched the app again. Still it would not unlock the doors. It’s now raining. I called onstar for assistance and was told that I only have the basic plan that does not cover assistance by phone to unlock my doors. However, as a one time courtesy they will unlock them for me. But that I should be warned that if this happens in the future I will not be assisted unless I upgrade the onstar package. I waited until I heard the doors unlock and then I said “regardless of whether I have a basic plan it should ALWAYS be a courtesy to unlock my doors when the app created by onstar fails to work!” The idea to hold someone hostage and pay an upgrade fee in order to be assisted when the app fails? What if a child or pet was in the car and I didn’t have a credit card on me to upgrade? Ridiculous! One thing for sure I will never purchase onstar or recommend it to anyone.
  • A good start to a nice app

    This app works fairly well on my iPhone. I use it in conjunction with my Bolt EV, so it is nice to be able to find charge locations and get a brief description of which charge network and plug type is available. The what-if route planning is also very handy to verify what destinations are within driving range. The navigation section of the app could some improvement. Setting the initial location and destination is not that easy, especially on a small screen. Better user prompts would help. Also strangely on a 2017 iPad, the app apparently can not auto update the parked location, though it can read vehicle status and lock/unlock doors, etc. This is a problem because the navigation feature won’t allow a route to be planned when the parked location is entered manually. Route planning does work OK on an iPone 6S where parked location is picked up automatically. The app runs only in portrait mode and on a large screen device like an iPad is just scaled up with huge text and buttons rather than better using the available screen real estate. I really would like to see the app perform better on the iPad which would make route planning a much better user experience.
  • Remote start & navigation disappeared!

    10/25 - Right after I left my last review I started getting an error message saying I didn’t have a plan & I couldn’t use any features. Right around the time I got a response from the developer the app started working again. I use this app every day to start my car and use the send navigation to vehicle feature a lot. If you are having issues try deleting it and reinstalling or logging out and pull down to refresh it when you open the app. I have the Guidance plan that includes navigation but after the last app update the navigation option disappeared in the app. I was using the send to vehicle option just fine until the last update and considering all the people who are complaining on here that it also disappeared for them I would say it is clearly your app update that messed it up! Please fix it and I already called Onstar and all they could do is put in a ticket for the issue. Please fix your app because it worked perfectly before your last update!

    It is purely a way to track the owner’s maintenance of their vehicles and also their daily driving habits. I can not overstate the ridiculousness of Chevrolet allowing such an abomination to be forced on every single customer they have. I have a Chevy High Country Pickup which was not cheap yet Chevy can’t figure out how to provide a halfway decent user experience with a simple app that 4 college kids could throw together in a weekend? In this day and age of Snowden proven governmental spying on American citizens, the fact that there is absolutely no way to turn off the tracking device on the vehicle (the on-star antenna and the Gps nav) is shameful. I don’t really care if they track me but the principle of tracking all of their customers all of the time is mind blowing. Maybe it is related to their insane debt as a corporation as compared to Ford but who really knows? I say erase dealerships and move to direct sales also- the dealerships are 90 percent scam artists and there is zero need for them to even exist other than their lobbyist getting legislation written that bans all direct sales, in my state anyway. This has been my experience- Maybe it will evolve but if not, this is my first and last Chevy ever.
  • UPDATED: Geolocation of vehicle no longer working

    By SCGay
    I gave the following feedback yesterday. The App was corrected and functioning correctly today. I also received a personal email informing me the corrections had been made. **Rating 1 yesterday / 5 today. Thank you developers!! ——————————————————— Until today, I have been able to “Locate Vehicle” from anyplace whether I have been driving or not. That way I always new where either of them are regardless of where I am or the vehicles are. Today that function went away suddenly and my only choice is to ‘choose’ a location on a map that forces to my personal current location (phone location). For instance; my 2015 Traverse is currently located in Nashville, TN with my son. I am in Albany, GA on W Doublegate Drive. When I refresh the “Parked Location” of that vehicle it places it where I am; NOT where the vehicle is!! This is absolutely NOT what I need from the app and service! Fix it ASAP, please!

    I would not pay to use this app, and would probably sell the car without the app. It wasn’t explained that there would be a cost for the app when I bought the car and I see a lot of upset users in the reviews. I called Onstar and was told I would have to pay to use the app when my trial period was ending this summer. We It wasn’t pretty. I finally found the document that showed that I don’t have to pay... yet. It’s free until 2023. Purchased my Volt in mid 2018. This nonsense of paying for limited use.. needs to end. Or at least make it a number that makes sense. The app is excellent for my needs and I don’t need any other services from Onstar. It’s a great service if you need it though. I haven’t used any other features than the below: Preheating is a big deal. The app works wonders and there is nothing better than getting into a warm car with a warm steering wheel to boot. Yes, it’s already cold here. Battery drain would be 1/10, if not plugged in. Improvement to the app maybe — if the car is set to charge by ‘best rate’ and I preheat the car in the am while plugged in, the car will not start charging and I lose 1/10 bat. It will if the charge setting is set to ‘immediate’. Pre-cooling is a very nice feature. Checking charge level is important. Nothing worse than forgetting to plug in, but being able to check the status saves a walk. Unlocked the car remotely once. That was pretty cool.

    Number 1: There's an app for my car! How cool is that? It doesn't really do anything yet. I just got a Bolt, and there is no correlation between what the app says and real life. In fact, I was traveling, thought "hey, it would be really cool to check on my car back home". The app told me that the car was dead, and offered to help me call roadside service. I was pretty concerned, I called OnStar and they told me I had probably left the lights on. I mentioned that a 60 kWh battery probably would be ok with the lights on for a day or two, but he said, "you'd be surprised", that it probably was indeed dead, and there was nothing that they could check to verify. When I got home it was fine, fully charged, just as I had left it. I'd really rather they didn't have features that are so blatantly misleading, but there must be some sort of intention to get it to work. This could be really cool someday.
  • Loving My Chevy App/OnStar

    By Mz Beaded Treasures
    I’m enjoying the app and it’s features. Unfortunately the remote functions randomly disappear periodically when tech support happens to not be available. After calling OnStar (Tech Department was closed) and expressing my concern the app miraculously displayed the OnStar features again but minus the remote features. I received it as a complimentary perk so for now I won’t complain however I plan to keep the more affordable plan when the time comes time to renew, and I hope everything will function as it is designed and I am paying for it to do. Developers: People read reviews to get a feel for the product as you know and if it’s showing a lot of negative reviews that seem to never change we save our money and do without the headache!! Great App just fix it.....
  • The application works as advertised

    This is a great app overall, but it still has one thing that keeps it from being a perfect application. I use it all the time to control my automatic start up open doors, etc. The biggest drawback of this application is that you still have to put in your passcode every single time you perform an action on your Apple Watch. I understand that the passcode is necessary for all actions on the iPhone, but if your Apple Watch is already authenticated when you first Place it on your wrists, then why do you need to add an additional passcode just to turn on your car? The fact that he keeps asking for a passcode is what makes the Watch application less efficient and annoying. Why doesn’t the Apple Watch version of this application bypass The need for a passcode on the app itself? This is why I cannot give it five stars. It’s just plain silly and redundant.

    The app by and large does what it says. However, if you turn off location services, the app brings up modal dialogs complaining about this fact, several times, every time you try to do anything in it. It renders it borderline unusable. I’ve got to imagine this is against some Apple terms of app development, as no other app I’ve ever used has been nearly so obnoxious if a setting is disabled. If the developers would fix this, check for the missing location services data only when the user asks for a feature that needs it, and checks only once every time the feature is requested, I think you’ll have a much more usable app. I’m not even getting started on the questionable decision to try include advertisements in this app. I bought a compatible car, so from that angle I spent an off a lot of money for this app already. Increasingly I have to tell people that I bought the car *in spite of* OnStar.
