General Motors have seen consistent use of the app for remote door unlocking facilities via OnStar and hence to cater to increasing customer demand, it has been decided to offer the same. RemoteLink Key Fob Services will allow customers to lock, unlock and start up their vehicles via a wireless or cellular connection.
The ability of RemoteLink Fob Key Service is that it can work way further than the range of a traditional key fob and this is practical in a variety of situations specially when starting up the vehicle on a cold day or ensuring that the car is safely locked in the company parking lot while you are in the comfortable confines of the office. The facility is being offered as a standard for a five year period which commences on the day that the vehicle is delivered. Customers will need to download the free application onto their compatible smartphone and abide by terms and conditions.
Mary Chan, president GM Global Connected Consumer said, “We know our customers value remote services.” “GM owners request remote door unlock assistance through OnStar more than 60,000 times each month, so it makes sense for us to offer RemoteLink Key Fob Services to enable customers to lock, unlock or start their vehicle from anywhere they have a wireless or cellular connection.” He added, “Our vehicles are getting more connected, and so are we. As mobile devices become a bigger part of our lives, GM understands the importance of providing our customers the ability to use these devices as part of their vehicle experience.”
“What’s great about the RemoteLink Key Fob Services is that it works far beyond the range of a traditional key fob, which can come in handy in a number of situations. Customers expect the connection to their vehicle to be available anywhere they go and anytime they want to use it,” said Alan Batey, GM vice president, U.S. sales and service. He added, “RemoteLink Key Fob Services represent simple, smart connectivity and another example of how our brands are evolving services and connecting with our customers.”
