GM and its OnStar subsidiary have expanded the reach of the RemoteLink mobile app to two new BlackBerry smartphones.

The app allows users to check fuel and oil levels in their GM vehicles, as well as the tire pressures in vehicles equipped with sensors. In the Volt hybrid-electric, they can check the battery life levels as well. Remotely locking or unlocking doors as well as starting vehicles can also be done. Even navigation information can be added to the car's OnStar system from the app, saving the time during the trip.

The Bold 9900 and Curve 9300 smartphones are the first to get the app, which was available since 2010 for iPhones and Android-powered devices, The Detroit News reported.

The app is now available to download from BlackBerry App World.
