OnStar has announced that it has changed the name of MyLink to RemoteLink, ending months of speculation surrounding the new name for the iPhone and Android application.
The rebrand comes in an effort to differentiate OnStar’s mobile application offerings from the new breed of Chevrolet infotainment systems, also dubbed MyLink.
“To help improve customer understanding of the mobile app and infotainment offerings across Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac, OnStar is renaming the OnStar MyLink mobile app OnStar RemoteLink,” reads OnStar’s press release.
In April, GM Authority exclusively reported that OnStar was looking to change the name of the MyLink app. GM Authority also provided a list of potential names for the app, of which RemoteLink was not part of.

Just so we’re all on the same page, let’s do a quick recap: first we had the OnStar MyLink — the app. Then we had Chevy MyLink — the infotainment system that will be available on 2012 model year and newer Chevrolets. As you may imagine, this confused users and thus the reason for the new name.
So, what do you think of the RemoteLink name? Sound off in the comments!
