New OnStar App
 
So I was viewing the onstar website and I found out about the new app that they are releasing for the 2011 models with onstar. You can check car diagnostics, lock/unlock your car and even start the car with this app. Personally I think this will be the sickest app of all when it comes and cant wait to use it my 2011 Camaro.

You realize you just re-opened a very painful scab? Lets just say us 2010 folks are feeling a little left out over this app. I'm sure I won't be the only one to voice their disgust over it.

Pretty cool. They sent me an email this morning about it. May have to try it out

Jessica-Rocks- 10-06-2010 05:27 PM

If it makes you feel better, it is not coming up on my app list yet. :D

Is there is a reason why it is not for 2010's? (I have a 2011 so don't flame me!
waiting for the :emoticon6: and the :paddle:)

same here jessica..when I search it on the app store it does not show...maybe its not yet released then. Just have wait

Jessica-Rocks- 10-06-2010 05:32 PM

Not til the end of the month it looks like. I figured since they have been showing commercials previously and sent out the email today it would be released. Oh well =( That is what I get for not reading the fine print.

they say it's because of a hardware issue. the 2011's have an upgraded chip..or something.

Really...where did you see the date. I could not find it but hope it comes out soon

guzaldon 10-06-2010 06:12 PM

the 2010's not getting it is a bonus in my book, you know that these smart phones are just as vulnerable to trojans and the like as a actual computer if not more b/c they don't run anti virus? how would you feel if your car was stolen b/c your phone was hacked? then your on star was disabled b/c they got physical access to the computer?

though i guess convience is mother to nessesity.

I would still be interested in the possible update for my 2010 so the option is there, but it'll be way to expensive to actually do it I'm betting since you'll probably have to rip the dash all the way out.

Jessica-Rocks- 10-06-2010 06:15 PM

The commercial I watched said fall 2010. So we will see. I don't see myself using it too much. I barely use any apps on my iphone except facebook lol

Mickmunster 10-06-2010 06:38 PM

yea i would use it once in a while...the one thing im really looking for is the remote start because i was going to get it installed but if this comes then it would save me a lot of money...

I doubt they're going to force you to install it on your smartphone. So that argument is pretty weak.

He means that someone could hack your phone and access the onstar app, thus using it's features to start and unlock your car.

I think.

They can't hack your phone and access the app if you never install it.

He said it was a bonus in his book that the 2010 Camaro wouldn't support the app, so they couldn't hack your phone and steal your Camaro. Since you can achieve the same effect by not installing the app, I fail to see how not having a choice is a bonus.

The app will not add remote start to a car that never came with it.

You can install antivirus software on a smart phone. Just search "Antivirus" in the app store.

One thing not realized here is that the Camaro can not be moved with out the key actually IN the ignition. Yes it could be started but it will only run for 10 minutes two times. (This is in the manual.) So it is not possible to steal a car just using the OnStar App. So don't worry about that! :)
