Pretty Cool (and Practical): OnStar Mobile Application for the Chevrolet Volt

General Motors is looking ahead…to its anticipated launch of the Chevrolet Volt later this year. To appease the tech junkie, OnStar has created an app for the Volt so the owner can access real time data. Most importantly, owners will be able to manage their car charging controls remotely. Want to start charging the Volt during off-peak hours? No problem, this app is for that. Want to warm the interior in the morning using your home’s electricity? No problem, this app is for that. Are you sitting in your cubical and want to make sure you have enough battery life to get home? Sure, this app is for that. Did you forget to plug in your Volt? No problem, the app will send you an email or text message to remind you. Did you go to the mall and forget to lock your Volt? No problem, use the app to lock your doors from anywhere. This app currently works on the iPhone, iPod Touch, Droid by Motorola, and BlackBerry. To learn more, check out the video below.
