GM’s OnStar has a new feature out for their RemoteLink application that will allow drivers to search for a destination on their smartphone and send the directional information directly to the vehicle through the OnStar wireless systems. As a result, drivers can get turn-by-turn directions through OnStar’s in-dash navigation system or its voice feature.
“Our customer focus is simple connectivity and a seamless user experience,” said Steve Schwinke, OnStar director Advanced System Design. “RemoteLink’s navigation enhancement offers our customers another choice in how they get directions, whether they’re in their car, on their computer, or using their compatible smartphone.”
Owners of iPhones or Android-powered smartphones can buy the app with the new feature beginning today, on August 30th. Those who are getting the app for the first time will automatically receive the updated version.
“We know that 95 percent of smartphone users have looked for local information using their phone and 88 percent of them act on the information they find,” added Schwinke. “Whether they need to call or visit a local business, RemoteLink navigation offers a simple and easy solution.”
