I think the Apple Watch app needs update 5/5
I love the app. I am connected to my car from my phone... I have noticed the Apple Watch app, is not connecting to the car as it should. The app on the phone works.
Getting Worse 2/5
The app by and large does what it says. However, if you turn off location services, the app brings up modal dialogs complaining about this fact, several times, every time you try to do anything in it. It renders it borderline unusable. I’ve got to imagine this is against some Apple terms of app development, as no other app I’ve ever used has been nearly so obnoxious if a setting is disabled.
If the developers would fix this, check for the missing location services data only when the user asks for a feature that needs it, and checks only once every time the feature is requested, I think you’ll have a much more usable app.
I’m not even getting started on the questionable decision to try include advertisements in this app. I bought a compatible car, so from that angle I spent an off a lot of money for this app already. Increasingly I have to tell people that I bought the car *in spite of* OnStar.
Where is the Bolt tab under model? 1/5
Your blurb says there is Bolt tools but I can't even find where to add my car.
I tried to do this but Bolt isn’t even one of the choices offered and it is not possible to types in this area. Someone didn’t remember to add this model.
Won’t let me log in.
Vehicle Info won't load 1/5
I've been trying to update my vehicle information on this app for weeks and it still hasn't updated. This app used to be good but now it's just a constant reminder of what doesn't work.
Needs some bug fixes 3/5
Like that you finally added Touch ID support, and Apple Watch support. However, fix the Touch ID. I have to enable it with my pin twice a week.
Useful, but slightly buggy 4/5
By William Reading
I mostly use this app with a Bolt EV. I like being able to remote update the location of the car and the current charge status. The range map thing is handy, is the ability to control the locks and remote start.
Unfortunately, it could use some improvement.
Fast charge status says "(null) - (null)" in the app, which I'm guessing means it wasn't tested with that, but I'm guessing should show voltage and amperage.
Sometimes the car shows as critically low in the app on an update, even when it's fully charged.
The charging station map shows unavailable locations. Ideally it would just show L2/CCS and have a way to flip between slow and fast, if not plot a route through CCS.
Finally, when you first sign up, if your onstar account isn't associated with it, the PIN will never work. I had to call in a few times to get someone that knew what the error meant.
Lots of potential here 3/5
Number 1: There's an app for my car! How cool is that? It doesn't really do anything yet. I just got a Bolt, and there is no correlation between what the app says and real life. In fact, I was traveling, thought "hey, it would be really cool to check on my car back home". The app told me that the car was dead, and offered to help me call roadside service. I was pretty concerned, I called OnStar and they told me I had probably left the lights on. I mentioned that a 60 kWh battery probably would be ok with the lights on for a day or two, but he said, "you'd be surprised", that it probably was indeed dead, and there was nothing that they could check to verify. When I got home it was fine, fully charged, just as I had left it. I'd really rather they didn't have features that are so blatantly misleading, but there must be some sort of intention to get it to work. This could be really cool someday.
It's ok, but slow and missing some features 3/5
This app is far better than our other cars apps (Mercedes and Audi). I still wish it were better though.
1. I wish it was faster at updating the information inside the app
2. I wish the Apple Watch complication showed the current charge level of my Bolt instead of just showing a Chevy logo, would make it more useful to keep on my watch face.
3. I wish the design of the UI looked better visually
Its does all the basics, which is convenient. Some customization would be nice but overall very user friendly.
Slow app, need more easy access 3/5
Need a better interface to see the battery, just like in the car. Easy and fast way to see the load in the battery.
The current way to see the charge is slow, is no easy to understand if is way way, will be better with image no just number. Maybe the porcentaje is easy to read.

Best app for Chevy 5/5
This is one of the easier and best app for you vehicle Chevy.
Nice app - one quirk 5/5
Really like the app. Designed well and works well. One quirk - I actually own 8 vehicles with onstar, but only 4 of them show up in the app. Wish they would change that.
By Cody Shelby
I love the ability to lock my car from my phone I just wish it would say my address for the find my car feature instead of saying mine it says my neighbor but that's the only problem I have with this app
Broken features 2/5
Remote start / precondition no longer work with this app version. The app prompts to "use only when safe" but then nothing happens.
Beware, fault app 1/5
I used the app to remotely start my car when I was away on vacation. When I tried to turn the car off, an error message displayed saying the car didn't turn off. I called Onstar and they recommended reinstalling the app, but that didn't work. Luckily, it turns off automatically in 10 min, but there never was a resolution. In fact, the documentation on the app says the error (220) exists and is an issue.
By Evil EJ
No Remote Commands to lock, unlock doors and remote start in dashboard and have I OnStar. Also no Vehicle Status in the dashboard. You pay for these services and the consumer always get screwed. Another thing is the Parked Location. I go to set the location of my car which is in my driveway and it's showing it's in someone else's driveway 4 blocks away.
New update broke app 1/5
App worked fine before. After new update has lost all remote start functionality. Please repair.
App was great before update. 1/5
Update with location services spamming really ruined this. The app also lags a ton now on a 5s, too much work on the main thread, guessing a change in development or qa must of happened.
Cool, but some bugs 2/5
I like the app, it's got lots of resources. However, it won't let me access my maintenance records. I changed my oil and wanted to log it, but it always says it can't fetch owner manual details. I've restarted my phone, the app, etc. everything else works, but this is a very important feature in my opinion.
Location-based ads intrusive / unnecessary 2/5
The location based ads within the app are intrusive and unnecessary. Please focus on making an app with better navigation and car-related features, instead of adding unwatered advertising the app.
While you can turn it off, it's unnecessary and frankly creepy.
By Cal cook
Did update now it ask if I still own my vehicle it gives yes or no but it won't let me check yes it wants me to check no and delete this vehicle But still own this vehicle
Random logouts 3/5
The app is functional - does what it says it will do - but........
Randomly aborts a login using fingerprint reader and subsequently logs me out completely. Requires a manual entry of username and password from scratch. Does not retain anything. Usually at the worst possible time...when I am trying lock or unlock the doors with my hands full or standing in the rain. Never at a good time.
Great app 5/5
Love the KeyPass feature. Very helpful for adjusting settings on my car.
Sometimes Wrong EV Range 2/5
Sometimes the updating seems to go through the motions, but the results are not correct. Right now I'm seeing mine is NOT getting updated. This occurs even with mobile device inside vehicle. And so without this most important feature/info, the entire app becomes rather useless.
KeyPass not working consistently (Bolt) 2/5
After many installations and configuration cycles the app continues to sporadically fail to establish a healthy Bluetooth connection for keyPass functionality. Works initially and after a couple hours the app seems to forget The Bluetooth connection we have stylish before and functions like approach detection stop working. Bluetooth connection to KeyPass connects and disconnect in a ~1 second interval. Killing the app and re-launching it seems to help-seems like the app Bluetooth connectivity gets compromised after a number of hours in standby. iPhone 7 - latest sw.
Locked Out! 1/5
I've used the app for awhile an it seemed to work fine til the other day. I keep my keys in the truck an use the app to unlock the doors well that didn't work so well the other day the app kept failing an I had to call onstar to unlock it. This needs fixed!
A must have app for Chevrolet owners... 5/5
By Startpage user
Great App, I use it often. Love how I can Start my Silverado from almost anywhere,Lock or unlock it, get important info such as tire pressure, remaining fuel level, parked location,ETC... Thanks for an awesome App. Keep up the great work👍
Waste without OnStar 1/5
Unless you pay for OnStar, don't get this app. All of the functions are pretty much limited to the owners manual and recalls, owners manual has to be downloaded which is close to 20mb of data on your phone/tablet.
Now on Apple Watch 5/5
Thank you! I've been so patiently waiting for a watch app, it's great.
Frustratingly slow 2/5
Several times The past few weeks I've tried to use the diagnostic report and it never loads. Either it just hangs or I get an error message about it timing out. Used to work better several months ago.
What's the province 5/5
Good app but in sign up I keep getting tripped up by the province I live in Georgia,USA i tried GA but it doesn't work
App too slow and needs EV stop charging feature 1/5
By Air Canada fan
I've used the onstage app all the way to present and although welcome changes are updated the app is just too slow on refresh for EV status. Takes 1 min or more.
In addition not sure why there is no stop or start charging simple button feature for charging EV. I would have to stop the charging by selecting Departure mode for charging rather than immediate. This is not efficient .
What if I have to stop the charge immediate and can't physically get to the charger?
Touch ID & Remote Start 3/5
Please fix this what's the point of Touch ID if I constantly have to renter my 4 Digit code. Every time I think its stated I got back to the app only to see -PLEASE ENTER CODE
Waste of time
Works great but could be better 5/5
Works good so far. Seems to have fixed the bugs. Great update. Love the Apple Watch feature. Very nice. Keep it up Chevy. Your miles ahead of ford and its reasons like this is why I switched from Ford to Chevy. Not to mention the great cars. 👍
Love my Camaro's! 5/5
With a 2013 and a 2016 Camaro, I've found the app to be a great aid. It's fast, convenient and gives you just the bullets. I'm a Chevy girl all the way!
Wow really .. useless 1/5
How bout updating the fob responder to actually work.more in car detail instead of a horrible quote of how many miles you might have left on your current gas tank.how bout more how to videos???enless you memorize the owners manual you really have no idea about what your cars hidden features even are ex. Competitive mode.

Car Start Apple Watch 5/5
FINALLY! THE APPLE WATCH CAR START IS HERE AND IT WORKS PERFECTLY
Great app, love the watchOS app! 5/5
App is great and super convenient to start/stop, lock/unlock vehicle from iPhone and Apple Watch. There's a slight delay before the commands get to the vehicle but other than that a great feature. Just wish app would tell me when I left my car unlocked. 😀
Fantastic App 5/5
By Anthony Marinelli
Extremely helpful application. Super convenient. Security protected and I love the new update for fingerprint Touch- I.D.
I think it is laid out really well and keeps my vehicle diagnostics accurate. Helpful for me to make sure my wife is well protected in our 2017 Chevrolet Trax and that she isn't going to run out of gas. Plus I love that it tells me when my remote start succeeds or fails. The little things like that people should really appreciate for a free app!
New issues 2/5
The app was working perfectly fine before this recent update, I can use the unlock and lock command but not the start engine , it keeps failing and I never had this problem. It would also be beneficial if there was a climate control on the app, when I used to be able to start the car the a/c would be low.
Welcome update, new issues 4/5
By R Broom
Bolt EV owner here. The Energy Assist feature is great, this really helps range anxiety, and is a wonderful demonstration tool. The overall increased speed of getting the car data is also nice.
It seems about half the time the app shows wildly inaccurate results. They fixed the intermittent no-data bug, thank you!
One star off while the accuracy is being fixed.
Love the watch app! 5/5
By Jon from Bucksport
I use this app every day and I love that touch and WatchOS have now become part of it!
Barely works 1/5
Remote commands don't show up, all I can do is parked location, owners manual and call the dealer
Broken App 1/5
The newest update has broken the app! You can't even select which region or country/state you are in because it's all blank....
Can't find the key fob command 1/5
By wood working
Can get vehicle key fob command or anything else about my truck to work like tire pressure start truck and lock doors now. Why does these not work after I updated my app?
The app is garbage, just like my car. Never buying a Chevy again!
Excited for update but still glitchy 3/5
I'm glad for 3D touch and apple watch support except that it doesn't remember my touch ID or pin on the watch even with those settings enabled. Kinda wish it was consistent.
This app is excellent. It's very quick and responsive.
