General Motors & Google team up

Last week GM said it teamed up with a technology company to bolster its OnStar capabilities beyond the car, and as it turns out that partner is none other than Google. General Motors and Google have developed an Smartphone application to run on Android Phones for its up and coming Chevy Volt. The new app will be demonstrated this week at the Google I/O conference. Via the app you will be able to see your vehicles charging status, start & stop charging, locate your vehicle on Google maps, and enter addresses for your OnStar turn by turn navigation. But hey, since your using an Android phone running OS 1.6 or higher, you can always opt to use the built in turn by turn directions on the device. You can expect to see The Chevy Volt App 2.0 in the Android market this fall.
