    Question OnStar System Upgrade?

    Yesterday between around 6-7PM EST RemoteLink apps were unable to connect and we're getting a message that the app was unable to authenticate with the server.

    Since it came back, I have notice that refreshing charging status is much faster. It used to take around 1.5 minutes. Now it is right around 35 seconds. I've refreshed about 5 times and have had nearly identical results.

    I am still using version 1.9. Anyone else notice this as well?

    I just refreshed my data on my iPAD and can confirm it is faster, hopefully OnStar will fix their issue with VoltStats now.

    I just tried it on my LG G2 running RemoteLink 2.0.0-R2042, and it took 4 minutes.

    After reading this, I thought I'd try. 35 seconds to refresh! This thing usually won't even remote start my car!

    Remote started and it seemed a little faster. One test doesn't mean anything though. Let's see it works for a month (heck even a week) without errors.

    I'm glad its better but I really wish they would test their crap before pushing it out into production.

    You expect way too much of them

    The refresh has always taken about 30-45 seconds for me with windows phone 8.1. I have been very happy with remote link app. Remote starts, remote lock/unlock updates have all worked well for me.

    My windows phone also works much better with the My Link system than iphone does. I don't want to imply that my superior windows phone technology is better than the big boys (apple and google). I am just pointing out that it works great with the Volt (and my Equinox too).

    Might need to look up the meaning of 'imply'.

    If it doesn't work with iPhone, it doesn't work period.
