I am a driver of an all electric Chevy Bolt. On one hand, this app is very handy to have for telling me when my charging is all done.
On the other hand, it keeps telling me every few days that “you are out of range of a charging station and must take immediate action!” But...and this is almost funny... it says this when I just unplugged with a full charge, or a few hours later with most of my range still available! How silly is that? This is why I have nicknamed this “the app that cries wolf”.
UPDATED REVIEW 5/21/18:
Same issue where app falsely warns me that I need to plug in right away, having just completed a full charge one minute ago.
I have a screen shot.
The remote start feature is a plus. So is the remote locking feature for those times when I ask myself, “Did I forget to lock the car?”
This is my first GM car and I am liking the OnStar features it offers. I know that if there’s an emergency, OnStar is there with the push of a button in the car or in the app. It also monitors various parameters of the car to let you know if service is needed. It’s a bit of Big Brother, but also reassuring.
UPDATE: Today, with 170 miles of charge remaining, I plugged in my Bolt to fill it up for the weekend. A few hours later, I checked this app on my iPhone to see where things stood.
The app showed a zero charge with a big warning when it should have been 100% done/full.
It also gave a tire pressure reading of 140 pounds in my right front tire!!
Both just completely nuts.
I refreshed the app screen and things went back to normal.
I took screenshots of this to show the developers if they want.
Still love the car and love having the app for it...but hope they get the bugs out soon!
