Remotely communicating with your Chevrolet just got a little easier.
Chevrolet is adding Apple Watch compatibility to its myChevrolet app. The announcement means Chevy owners will be able to control many of their vehicle's functions right from their wrist.
Mirroring Cadillac's recent Apple Watch update for its myCadillac app, the new myChevrolet app now allows owners to lock/unlock, remotely start, and locate their vehicle via an Apple Watch device. Owners can even get walking directions to their car via the Apple Watch app.
"The use of the myChevrolet app by our owners continues to grow across the entire vehicle lineup, so expanding its availability to Apple Watch was a natural next step and allows us to offer another easy way to manage key vehicle functions remotely," said Paul Edwards, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Marketing. "Whether you want to cool down your Malibu on a hot summer day or locate it after attending a crowded baseball game, Chevrolet owners can now make that choice from their iPhone or Apple Watch."
Chevrolet first introduced remote vehicle commands in 2010 with the launch of the OnStar RemoteLink app. In 2016 Chevrolet integrated OnStar with its own myChevrolet app. Today the myChevrolet app is used by more than 1.4 million people.
