Chevy’s ‘Vehicle Locate’ App Will Send Automated Texts When You Arrive, Leave Destination

Vehicle Locate is a new feature available in the myChevrolet app, designed to help owners and make the process of checking-in more convenient.

It works by letting Chevy owners send automated text alerts to friends and family when their connected vehicle either enters or exists a designated boundary area, or when it arrives at or departs from a certain location.

Users can even utilize the feature to locate their connected vehicle at any given time, which in turn should offer a peace of mind, as should the previously-mentioned text alerts.

“At Chevrolet we aim to make our drivers’ lives easier through smart and purposeful technologies,” stated Chevrolet product manager for Remote Services, Alejandra Gonzalez. “Vehicle Locate provides both drivers and their loved ones with peace of mind in a variety of different drive-related scenarios.”

The U.S. automaker has even identified a few scenarios where Vehicle Locate could come in handy. Imagine, for example, a working professional who regularly notifies his family or friends when they leave work or are nearing home. By using Vehicle Locate, an automatic notification would replace the need to send a text message.

Parents are another good example, as most of them would like to be able to know when their teenage kids have arrived at school, or perhaps when they leave a designated radius. Same goes for when someone asks to borrow your car – you can keep tabs on it and anticipate its return.

Vehicle Locate is only available to owners of eligible 2012MY or newer Chevrolet models in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
