CES 2010: Chevy And OnStar Show Off BlackBerry Application For Chevy Volt
on 6 Jan 2010 09:46 am
We've heard before that Chevy was working alongside OnStar to come up with a mobile application that would interact with the much talked about electric Chevy Volt. The official announcement actually arrived back in December. Engadget got an up close and personal look at the interaction the application has with the Volt in their hands on video posted above.
Working between your device (BlackBerry, iPhone or Android) and the OnStar backend you can monitor and manage quite a few aspects of the Volt all from your mobile device. Things such as checking the charging status, reviewing driving statistics and of course locking or unlocking the doors, beeping the horn and finally, starting the car up. Pretty cool connectivity with your car, the only bad thing about it is that you likely have to wait until the end of 2010 or 2011 in order to make use of the application as that's when Chevy expects the Volt to roll out to consumers.
