Video: OnStar Application for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry

We had heard the Chevrolet Volt would have a mobile application to keep tabs on charging status, and here at CES, it was their prize announcement. The OnStar mobile app will offer an impressive amount of remote control, including starting the car, beginning and scheduling charging, sounding the panic alarm, and accessing mileage stats. Dummy versions of the app are currently available to play around with, but the working final product won’t be available until late 2010. The device selection is a little slim (demoed at the show was only the iPhone, Motorola droid and BlackBerry Storm), but odds are good that we’ll see greater compatibility down the line.
