Manufacturers have also included technology into the vehicle to be used by the driver and passengers. In some cases all the gizmos have overwhelmed owners. GM has started a service to help buyers learn how to use their high tech options. Here is an excerpt from General Motors on just a few of the hi tech options available;

Mobile Applications: Keeping you Connected

Mobile applications empower us to stay connected with people and information while on the go, and bring greater independence and often more fun into our day-to-day lives. With apps like OnStar's RemoteLink1, Chevrolet MyLink2, Buick and GMC IntelliLink2 and Cadillac CUE2, GM leverages this technology to enhance your driving experience.

The RemoteLink application brings the power of OnStar directly to smartphones to let drivers control functions like locking their doors and starting their vehicles from anywhere. Navigation is made simple, too, with the ability to search for a destination and send directions directly from your phone to your vehicle. Directions download into the vehicle at the next ignition cycle. Owners can also check vehicle diagnostics like fuel level, remaining oil life, and tire air pressure remotely. With Buick and GMC IntelliLink, Chevrolet MyLink and Cadillac CUE, you can use Bluetooth3 or USB4 connectivity to integrate your smartphone and other apps right into your vehicle's in-dash display.
