It’s been apparent that many of you who read and comment on GM Authority own a 2010 General Motors vehicle that is not compatible with the OnStar MyLink smartphone app. Those in this situation are more or less bummed because there are several 2010 models that didn’t make the compatibility cut. So we did some question asking for you…
OnStar’s Vijay Iyer explained to us that the reason several 2010 vehicles don’t work with the OnStar MyLink app is related to compatibility issues, either caused by dated OnStar hardware in the vehicles themselves or because the vehicles’ programming cannot properly communicate with the app. Despite this, we’re told that OnStar is making an effort to make the application compatible, but there’s no telling how long it will take, or if they will succeed in doing so.
Like it or not, that’s what we’re told is going on. But we hope that OnStar will find a way to offer the awesome MyLink, which may soon get a name change, to the rest of the 2010 model year GM family that remains incompatible.
