For those who like OnStar and GM vehicles, the company has put more control over the car and its features into your own hand and smartphone than ever before via a product called OnStar RemoteLink.

RemoteLink provides connectivity to your Chevrolet, Cadillac, Buick & GMC from your smartphone. After downloading and registering the app, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC owners with a 2010-2012 model year eligible vehicle can use their mobile device to access real-time data from their vehicle and perform commands like unlocking doors remotely.

How does it work? Find a destination on your phone and send it directly to your OnStar Turn-by-Turn or In-Dash navigation system (OnStar Directions & Connections subscription required). Your directions will be downloaded and available upon vehicle start, and you are on your way. You can also lock and unlock doors from any distance and start the vehicle remotely (based on vehicle capability).

Looking for your car in a mall or stadium parking lot, RemoteLink will allow you to activate your horn & lights to help locate your vehicle, and it has greater range than the standard key fob.
