This could be the start of a beautiful friendship or even the foot in the automotive door for Google through GM.
Turns out, Google, OnStar, and Chevy are becoming quite the triumphant trio with their new smartphone mobile application through the Android.
The original launch of this technology was at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show and already they have updated the application to add a cool new feature which will debut at the Google I/O Conference today and tomorrow.
Their newest addition to the mobile app being demonstrated at the conference is the “navigation tab”.
This tab will allow theChevy Volt owner to see the current location of their vehicle on Google Maps and will even give the location of the car in relation to their Android.
That isn’t even the best part.
The consumer can primarily use this application to get directions to any destination they wish to go.
This works by having the consumer voice the destination to their Android.
The phone then determines where this destination is and relays that information to OnStar.
When the consumer hops into their Chevy Volt, the turn-by-turn directions will be waiting for them.
These new features allow Chevy to maintain the commitment they have made “to providing Volt customers with the most connected vehicle experience possible”.
