Exclamation OnStar MyLink Mobile App – Additional Information and Answers to FAQ's

OnStar MyLink Mobile App Key Benefits

Let’s you take control of your car – and your world.

With a single button it lets you:
  • Start/turn off or lock/unlock your doors from anywhere you have cell phone service (remote features REQUIRE FACTORY INSTALLED OPTIONS – app is not compatible with aftermarket remote start and lock accessories, including dealer installed GM OEM products)
  • Be automatically connected to an Advisor, whether you have a simple request or need emergency assistance

It also gives readouts of your vehicle’s information - including remaining oil life, fuel level and range, tire pressure, miles per gallon and Hands-Free Calling minutes.

Cost

There is no charge for the mobile app; however, vehicle must be associated with an active OnStar subscription in order to connect to OnStar MyLink mobile app.

Vehicle Availability

MOST 2011 model year vehicles. Refer to the attached chart for details.

Mobile Device Compatibility

Android™ 1 device with WVGA or HVGA resolution running Android OS 2.1 or later

Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch2 device with cellular or internet connection

Maximum Number of Connections per VIN/Device

Mobile devices connected to a specific VIN: Five

VINs connected to the same mobile device: Unlimited (note: each VIN requires a separate login ID and password)

OnStar MyLink Registration Process
Refer to attached instructions. Note: Customers should wait 24 hours from the time that their account is activated (dealer completes online enrollment) to setup their mobile app. A batch process transaction is run once-per-day at 1 PM ETZ which allows customers to access their OnStar account on the web.

OnStar MyLink Demonstrations

“Live” - If you have both a vehicle and device that are compatible with the app and the vehicle has an active OnStar account, you can setup and demonstrate OnStar MyLink following the normal process

One thing that I noticed recently is they require your pin each time you lock or unlock the doors. It's nice to know your butt can't unlock the car.

Power without control is useless.

Is this going to work on the 2010 Camaro's? I have it stored on My-ITunes, but heard it only works for the 2011.

Not yet it doesn't. I don't think 2010 owners will get all the features owners of 2011's will have -

I emailed OnStar about 2010 Camaro's. They told me that it will be available in the near future but couldn't say how near. They didn't mention if it would have limited features or not. I think all 2010 owners should get the full program though, I don't see why we couldn't.

Past Camaros: 2000 Camaro SS 6-Speed,
1999 Camaro Z28 A4, 1994 Camaro Z28 A4


Delivered: 2SS/RS CGM M6 - VIN #7460

Does the MyLink work with Nokia smart phones?
