Kinda nice right?
Nice! At the CES show there's a company called Viper or something and they do car unlock systems, so it has the basic features of this, such as starting the car, unlock, panic, etc.
It'll be interesting in the future when all cars have this and kids will make fun of us for having to unlock with a bulky key haha.
Lose/break/brick your phone and you lose your car controllability as well, nice!
Was that dose of reality really needed :icon_ devil:
You would still have a key device, this would only be for convenience of convergence. You could actually stash your key as a spare and use your phone as your main key. Hopefully there is some kind of security lock for the app tho....would suck if someone stole your phone....and your car.
Well, not so much the phone as the stock Verizon car charger but...when the charger is plugged in it causes interference with my Corvette's wireless system that detects the key fob so I can't start the car. Took a bit to figure out what it was but as long as the car charger is not plugged into the lighter the push button start works. As soon as you plug it in...no key detected.
Verizon...the new LoJack.
I have the 2010 Equinox and the car starter that comes standard is not great for distance. I would love to be able to start my car, on the cold and hot days, from a ways away. Not getting the Volt though.
I have wanted a Volt since back when it was ugly (well, uglier..). I love the idea of an electric car with a gas engine as a generator... oh, and being as it already likes my phone, that's nice too.
Hey great! Finally a reason to buy a Chevy lol!!
Im guessing that since OnStar is a part of VZW we can expect to see this type of app for any OnStar equipped vehicle.
Corvette's have been a reason to buy chevy since 1953
Just jabbin at ya bit. The Vette is the best sports car for the money and then some. Fortunately the GTR has a back seat so its "technically" not a sports car.
