This app enables multiple features, including Remote Key fob, Vehicle Locate, Vehicle Status, and Voice Assistant. These functions allow users to interact with their new Chevrolet like never before and be completely integrated with their vehicles. With a mobile command center at the driver’s fingertips, Chevy drivers can essentially remote start their vehicle, remote stop the vehicle, and even sound the horn from their smartphone.

You can even track your vehicle no matter where you are with your smartphone. This is a great feature that allows you to keep tabs on whoever is driving the vehicle. The Vehicle Status feature offers insight on fuel range, tire pressure, and oil life. This app allows users to seamlessly control maintenance and gives security and peace of mind. Be sure to ask our Serra Chevrolet Akron sales professionals about this option when searching for your next Chevrolet.
