myChevrolet app now offers Vehicle Locate for parents and more

Techstination feature for Monday, March 18, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Chevy has added a new feature to its myChevrolet app…designed to add some peace of mind.   Especially, perhaps, for the parents of teen drivers.   The new Vehicle Locate feature can send automatic text alerts to designated family members or friends…when their vehicle enters or leaves specified areas.   Product Manager Alejandra Gonzalez…

“You don’t have to rely on them to let you know they got where they were supposed to be.  So I have a radius set around my daughter’s school and I know when she arrives every morning and I don’t have to wait for her to call me or text me and say she got there okay.”

The service is part of Chevy’s Remote Access Plan available by subscription on 2012 model year vehicles or newer.

You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
