OnStar Mobile bringing unmatched vehicle connectivity to Android

Imagine the ability to completely control and monitor your car from the palm of your hand. Launching in late 2010, the Chevrolet Volt will be the first vehicle to support the new OnStar Mobile. Users will receive unprecedented connectivity with the ability to monitor electric range, MPG, battery level, and charge status.

OnStar Mobile will also allow drivers to control car functions like charging their Volt, unlocking and locking their doors, remotely starting the engine, running diagnostics, and receiving automatic alerts.

For a demo of their Android application, visit OnStarMobileDemo.com from your Android phone. (Warning: the app was designed for the Motorola Droid, so the UI does not fit on phones with smaller sized screens.)
