Vauxhall app enables drivers to send journeys straight to satnav

Using the OnStar personal connectivity and service assistant together with the latest version of the app, drivers enter the destination on their smartphone and send it to their car at the push of a button. Addresses can also be added through the smartphone’s address book.

Other updates to the My Vauxhall app also mean that drivers can now add useful comments to the Vehicle Location function, and even a photo to help avoid forgetting where they have parked. And to help avoid parking fines, My Vauxhall users can set a timer to remind them when their parking ticket is about to expire.

“Vauxhall OnStar is already popular with our customers and this latest update only makes Vauxhall’s connected services even stronger,” said Mike Lee, Vauxhall's head of OnStar strategy and planning. “With the new Send Destination function and the helpful enhancements to Vehicle Location, the latest My Vauxhall smartphone app offers OnStar users more convenience and even greater peace of mind.”

Android and iOS smartphone users can download the My Vauxhall app from Google Play Store and the App Store.
