We’re all busy people. We have to do errands when we’re running late for work. Sometimes we forget where we parked our vehicle. Or sometimes we know exactly where our vehicle is, but the keys are locked in it.

We want to help make life a little easier for busy drivers. That’s why we offer services like Marketplace,*24 Vehicle Locate*29 and Remote Key Fob*28 with our Connected Services plans.*1b

Some say peace of mind is priceless. Might as well make it affordable. Your monthly Connected Services plan could cost less than lunch each week. On average, Americans spend $10 twice a week on lunch — that’s nearly $1,000 a year!

Let’s see all the things you can do because you have a vehicle with active Connected Services.

Reason #1: Easy access with your vehicle’s mobile app.

You can take advantage of many of the convenient features of Connected Services even if you’re not with your vehicle. To get started, download the myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC or myCadillac mobile app*26 from the App Store*57 or Google Play.*59

Reason #2: No locksmith needed.

Locked your keys in your car? No worries. With a properly equipped car and a paid Connected Services plan, you can just pull out your smartphone and push the unlock command on your myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC or myCadillac mobile app.*26 Voilà, your car is now unlocked,*28 and you didn’t even have to move from your seat.

Reason #3: Keep your vehicle’s interior cozy.

No matter if the weather outside is frightfully hot or cold, the temperature inside your vehicle can still be delightful. With a paid Connected Services plan, you can start your car*28 (if properly equipped) with your vehicle’s mobile app*26 and warm up or cool down the interior before you get in, buckle up and hit the road. You can also use voice commands to perform remote key fob functions from an Alexa built-in device*78 from home with a request like “Alexa, ask Chevrolet to start my car.”

Reason #4: You can find your vehicle with the push of a button.

Lot 2, area D? Or Main Street at the corner of 5th? Totally forget where you parked your car? We’ve all been there. Use Vehicle Locate*29 to request your vehicle’s approximate location and see it on a map*29 within your vehicle’s mobile app on your smartphone. With Vehicle Locate, you can also set boundary alerts, and receive custom notifications for your vehicle’s arrivals at and departures from predetermined destinations.

Reason #5: Keep up with maintenance more easily.

Your vehicle’s mobile app can help when you’re getting ready for a road trip. Easily check your vehicle’s status*21a to check components like oil and fuel levels, then find a participating Dealer and schedule a service appointment.*21a During the appointment, you can view the status of your vehicle’s maintenance as it’s being serviced so you’ll known when it’s ready to get back on the road. Plus, if you’re on your road trip and the unexpected happens like running out of fuel or getting a flat tire, you can also use the app to request Roadside Assistance.*17

Reason #6: Your car has internet too!

Impress your co-workers and friends when you go out with the hottest spot on wheels. When you purchase a data plan for your vehicle’s available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot,*33 you can stream music to your vehicle while your friends in the rear seat search for restaurant ratings or challenge each other to the latest online game.
