  • Good but wouldn’t pay

    By Bearded Eli
    So I work in cellular, everyone offers things like this car monitoring , road side assistance, remote start. What makes this the way to go is it’s by your cars manufacturer, I like to go to the dealership not because the tech in the bay is 35 and has held a wrench since 3 but because it’s a dealership. This app works when you’re using it. I have to go section by section and update to see what the cars status is. If my tire is low I want to get an alert on my phone, not go to where I’d find tire pressure drag it down and release wait for it to load and then know, by that time I’m already in my car driving. Even if it being more live, or if it automatically updated when I open the app would be great. For the first week I was just opening the app and thinking the app was updating with me opening it, boy was I wrong. I’ll tell you I love he buttons on there, the point there’s added security when opening in, turning on etc. But would love the app the work outside of me having it opened if that makes sense.
  • Not reliable enough

    Love the concept of this app. Primary use case is to be able lock my keys and iPhone in my Regal, go for a run in the park, come back to my car and unlock it with my Apple Watch. Should be simple enough, but it’s a roll of the dice every time I come back from my run - could take 10 seconds, but more often takes much longer. I look and feel really dumb standing outside my car sweating in the sun while I keep clicking on the unlock button, eventually rebooting my watch, hitting it a couple of more times, then finally getting it to work 15 minutes after I started. There’s clearly message queuing issues between the Watch app and iPhone app. And speaking of that, at this point in the development lifecycle, there’s no reason that a cellular Apple Watch should need to be connected to an iPhone in order to work; it should be able to connect directly with OnStar web services.
  • It used to be better, now it is just trying to extort money for users.

    By Cyvil
    OnStar recently changed its pricing plans. The remote app features used to be free with vehicle purchase for a few years, but it now costs at least $15 per month to perform the remote functions and on demand diagnostics. OnStar is supposed to be a selling point for GM vehicles, but it has now become a sore point with the customers by taking features away! No one in their right mind would pay $15 a month for these features. The bean-counters at Renaissance Center better stop thinking their customers are idiots. Just because OnStar may not be making enough money does not mean that jacking up the price would even that out. Because customers would simply not pay for the service and the book will still be in the red.
  • Great! When it works..

    By Dean MacLean
    Have had several issues getting this to work 100% of the time. Usually works about 65-75% of the time. Mostly have to try twice to get my vehicle to start. Sometimes it won’t start at all. I would love to see them integrate some way to deal with unreliable cell and WiFi connections which I believe is the cause of all the failed remote start commands. Also Competing companies like Viper are allowing virtual assistants like Siri to start/stop, lock or unlock the vehicles using verbal commands, which would be a fantastic improvement. No idea why GM and onstar aren’t doing this as well as I would think this would be pretty simple for a company like them to do.
  • Ok

    By GreenSonja
    It mostly works, I guess, but it doesn’t always register every trip and I can’t use the digital manual or videos option as these apparently don’t exist for the tourx yet and I have seen no date of when they might be available (if ever). Also wish it included a list of the options tied to your VIN number. You buy a car on the lot that has the things you want, but they come as part of a package (with other items you were indifferent to) and it would be nice to have a convenient list of what was on that package without having to go back to the sale papers.
  • Ahead of the competition

    By radum97
    I agree with some of the frustrations due to slow reaction of the app/multiple steps when using the remote start (1 star removed). Other than that, the app is working as advertised for me 9/10 times. I like it. Checked the Mercedes and Lexus apps with horrible ratings and the owners are giving this GM app as the “go to” example. Ha! Infinity and Acura don’t even have a remote start option in their app.. In addition, there are no customer representatives answering there. Good job GM, but don’t get complacent
  • Logging out

    By Auntie dawn 274
    I love the fact that I can start my car, lock doors, etc from the app. Recently it seems that as soon as I close the app it logs me out. Not sure why since you have to enter your password or use your fingerprint to actually use any of the functions. At least allow fingerprint access to open the app or save the information. Having to re-enter the password for each use is becoming annoying.
  • GM APP

    By My Buick
    I have a 2016 Buick Verano and I use the Gm On-Star App. I have only 1 problem, with the app in starting the car app, but that is due to the phone trying to use wi- do and cell data at the same time. Once I get further away from the wi-go source or turn off the wi-fi , I have no problems with the app. I use the app all the time to start my car, to lock and unlock my car, to check the tire pressures, to check the online owners manual, to schedule service ( if I need it ). I also use the Buick Smart Rewards driver, to make me aware of how I drive. All of these reviews that have the Buick app, should try the GM On-Star app. I also have a I Phone- X and still have no problems.
  • Features removed

    By jeffc
    Last update removed ability to send destinations to the in dash navigation. Don’t know if this was an error or Intended. Support advisor told me I would have to subscribe to full onstar navigation to get back something I had been using in the basic service for a year. GM is kidding themselves if I’m going to start paying for this because they decided it was time to extort more money from its captive audience. Update: Send to Vehicle magically returned Thanksgiving weekend...gave it one more star.
  • App needs to open trunk

    3
    By cmdouble
    I have a 2013 Buick Verano which I love. Not having to fish my keys out to start it is great with the push button start for the engine. However, I wish the app had the capability of opening the trunk. There is no button for the trunk, so I have to fish my key fob out whenever I go shopping. It would be great to be able to open the trunk from the app or my Apple Watch. Please make this happen!!!
