    Default OnStar remote built into new MyChevy app

    Just got an update for MyChevrolet on my Nexus last night and noticed that the remote functions are now built into the app. I don't remember this being the case before. Haven't played with it enough to investigate any new functionality but it at least looks pretty nice.

    It's at least three apps. I'm using MyCadillac app now.

    Makes sense to me. Building OnStar into the Chevy/Cadillac/Buick/GMC apps, rather than having a MyChevy app and an OnStar app.

    I suspect the OnStar app will stay around, for owners of orphaned cars (Olds, Saturn) and for those that buy the OnStar add-on mirror.

    Thanks to Internet message boards, we now know this is not the case.

    I downloaded the MyChevy app today. I like it better even though its pretty much the same functionally. Too many bad memories of the OnStar app forcing me to re-enter credentials, slow, out of service....
