We’re pretty stoked to see General Motors release OnStar RemoteLink 2.0 app earlier this week. Based on customer feedback collected over the years, the all-new RemoteLink 2.0 features a completely-redesigned user interface as well as other enhancements that make it more intuitive for users.
In its various versions, RemoteLink currently has 1.3 million total active users, and here are some more stats that you might not have seen.
In 2014, RemoteLink processed over 43 million requests, more than double the requests in 2013.
The top 4 requests:
- Remote start: 35 percent
- Vehicle Diagnostics: 26 percent
- Vehicle Locate: 11 percent
- Door lock: 10 percent
RemoteLink registration by make:
- Chevrolet: 62.5 percent
- GMC: 20.8 percent
- Cadillac: 8.6 percent
- Buick: 8.1 percent
The most popular vehicle: the Chevy Silverado, which isn’t unexpected given that the Silverado is the best-selling GM vehicle in North America.
The release of RemoteLink 2.0 comes at a great time since more customers are using the app than ever before. In December 2014, for instance, RemoteLink experienced record-setting use with nearly 7 million total requests. GM tells us that usage growth has continued since, with multiple days in January totaling more than 450,000 requests in a 24-hour period.
