Chevy owners can now locate their car in the myChevrolet app
Find my soul.
Ever get lost trying to find your car in a massive parking lot? Well, if you’re the proud owner of a Chevrolet (be proud, be very proud), those days are long gone. The company just announced that it’s adding a much-needed “find my car” feature to its app.
With this new feature, Chevy owners can pinpoint their vehicle’s location anywhere in the world, and they can share who sees the car’s location with up to 10 designated users. This sort of functionality is perfect for remembering where you parked or if you want to keep track of your where your kids are going on your car.
Additionally, the “find my car” feature has a bunch of other useful features that could prove helpful to drivers. Users can select up to 10 people to notify if a vehicle travels outside or inside a particular boundary area. For example, if you don’t want your kids going to the rager down the street, you could set that as a boundary and anytime the vehicles enter that area, you could get an alert letting you know the car is there.
Obviously, this isn’t going to work on every Chevy. Specifically, this feature is only available with Chevys dating back to 2012 and for owners who are signed up for the company’s Remote Access Plan.
To get this feature, all you need to do is update the myChevrolet app, and from there you should see a window for the new option. The app can be download from either the Google Play Store or the App Store.
