Chevrolet has rolled out an update for its mobile app with a new “vehicle locate” feature which does exactly what the name suggests. The feature allows the user and up to 10 designated people to keep an eye on the car’s location. The feature does not allow for constant tracking of the vehicle, though, much like Uber’s Trip Tracker does for example.
Nevertheless, the vehicle locate feature will come in handy for users who tend to forget where they parked or if they just want to keep an eye on a loved one. You could already use apps like Google Maps and Apple Maps to mark where you parked your car or even as a third-party GPS tracker.
Users can access this new feature by updating the myChevrolet app and they’ll find a new tile for the option. It works with Chevrolet vehicles with model year from 2012 and up and is part of the Remote Access Plan.
The feature can then be used to notify up to 10 designated people when the car either enters or leaves a defined geofenced area. The people who are selected to receive alerts will have to opt-in first. This custom area can be made as specific as a particular address or as wide as a 20 mile radius.
