Chevy Volt To Get Smartphone Control
Twice.com reports: GM's OnStar subsidiary will offer smartphone applications that will let Chevy Volt owners control key vehicle functions and OnStar features from afar.
The OnStar web app.The applications for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android phones will be available when the electric vehicle launches late this year, OnStar said. Remote access will also be possible from a cellphone's Web browser.
For the Volt, the smartphone apps will remotely lock and unlock doors, honk the horn and flash the lights, activate the heating or AC (from the power grid if the car is plugged into a power outlet), remotely charge the vehicle if plugged in, set a timer to remotely charge the vehicle during off-peak hours, and remotely view the status of vehicle systems. On their cellphone display, Volt owners would be able to see charge status, remaining vehicle range, cumulative and last-trip miles per gallon, and odometer and trip odometer readings. The smartphone would also receive vehicle diagnostic updates via email with a regular OnStar subscription.
Wow that is amazing! I will have to buy a volt for that..
Wonder what it would take to turn the volt into a r/c like on James Bond. Hehehehehe
