On-Star Remote Link

Why does my Q-10 not support the App for On-Star, the Z-10 and Z-30 do, they have the same operating system!?


Extremely frustrated, new truck and new phone and they are not compatable.

Re: On-Star Remote Link

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

As has always been, apps must be specifically written for specific device models and major OS level combinations. An app written solely for a Z10 on will not work on a Q10 also running Consider -- one has a physical keyboard and the other a virtual keyboard...technically, they may be on the same OS release level, but the OS itself is simply not the same (can't be, given that the hardware is different).

The best place for inquiries about any app you desire for a specific platform is directly with the app developer themselves.

Good luck!
