Silverado-Connected-OwnersChevrolet Silverado owners are some of the most connected drivers on the road, making up the largest population of OnStar RemoteLink mobile app users. And they’re using the app more often than most drivers to check tire pressures, oil levels and remotely start their trucks. Silverado drivers will also have an unprecedented industry-first connection to their trucks called Proactive Alerts, which can predict and notify drivers when certain components need attention – in many cases before vehicle performance is affected.

When using the app, Remote Start and Vehicle Diagnostics are the top two most-used features by Silverado owners. Silverado is also the top model for owners to send directions from their phone to their vehicle.

Fleet customers can also stay well-informed of what’s happening to each truck in their fleet, thanks to a partnership with Telogis. The company’s fleet maintenance tools work in sync with OnStar technologies, allowing tracking of destination, speed and, fuel economy, engine hours, idle time and oil change status. Trucks also can be remotely locked and unlocked. Unlike trucks from other manufacturers, Telogis can connect to properly equipped Chevrolet trucks using OnStar’s remote application programming interfaces in lieu of costly hardware installations in each vehicle.
