GM recently announced that owners of BlackBerry Bold, 9900 and 9300 can now use the famous OnStar RemoteLink mobile app.
The OnStar mobile app entered the market in 2010 and since then owners of iPhone and Android smartphones can use this app to check oil and pressure levels, the fuel amount, lock and unlock doors, start their vehicles and even check battery life. In 2011 it was added a feature allowing customers to use their smartphone to find a destination, and then send the information directly to their cars.
A report shows that those who use the RemoteLink app the most, are owners of Sonic, Cruze and Chevrolet Volt models, and also Chevrolet and GMC full-size pickups. From 2013 the OnStar RemoteLink mobile app could be used on 31 GM vehicles. The new app uses HTML5 technology, which is a languge for writing and structuring contecnt for the web, continuously gaining momentum in the mobile app segment.
“We listened to our subscribers, and in doing so, took an extra step by writing the BlackBerry version using HTML5 technology,” said Steve Schwinke, director, Advanced Systems Development for OnStar.
