HOW TO USE YOUR MYGMC MOBILE APP

Difficulty Level: Novice  |  Time Required: 5 Minutes  |  Tools Required: None  |  Related Parts, Products, Services or Technology: Compatible smartphone

The myGMC mobile app enables you to use your smartphone to interact with your vehicle from wherever you are. You can remote start, unlock and lock your vehicle, view your fuel life and tire pressure, and more on properly equipped vehicles. 


GETTING STARTED

  1. Download the myGMC mobile app from the Apple App Store®† or the Google Play™† store. If you already have it, you can check for any available updates to the app by searching for “myGMC” in the App Store or Google Play.
  2. Create an account or sign in to app using your GM account email and password (the same email address you gave your dealer when you bought the vehicle).
    Note: Signing in with an email account already registered with an OnStar® account allows your vehicle to sync with the app and provides access to subscription-based app features.
  3. If you’re a new user or you’ve updated the app, you’ll be presented with a two-factor authentication process to verify your identity. You can also enable or disable biometrics for future access.

Make sure you keep your app updated to the latest version to see what’s new. Be sure to be on the lookout for even more future updates to your mobile app.

If you’d like to demo the app before you download it, check out the Connected Services Demo and select the GMC mobile experience.

USING THE APP’S HOME SCREEN

The app’s home screen simplifies your ownership experience with features that help keep you informed and in control. The features, functionality and design of the Home screen will depend on your service plan and how your vehicle is equipped.

  • Tap the Account Menu (which appears as your initials) in the upper-right corner to access your Account information.
  • If you have more than one vehicle, tap your vehicle’s name to reach your Garage. There, you can change which vehicle you’re viewing or add a new vehicle.
  • Along the top of the home screen, you’ll see three tabs:
    1. My Vehicle: Find essential remote commands and quick-view widgets, including Vehicle Status and EV Charge Status, if your plan and vehicle support them.
    2. Vehicle Settings: Access additional remote commands and customizable Vehicle Settings.
    3. Help Center: Tap to schedule service, get Roadside Assistance, read your Owner’s Manual or call OnStar® for help.
  • Along the bottom of the home screen, you’ll see icons to return home, access map and EV Navigation features or more app features.

REMOTE COMMANDS

If your vehicle and service plan support remote commands (e.g., engine start/stop), you’ll find the essential controls right on the app’s home screen.

  • Tap and hold one of the remote command icons to start a request. The app will tell you to keep holding until the request is complete. It may take a few seconds.
  • For other remote commands not listed on the home screen, go to the Controls tab. You can also tap “View More” to see more options.

EV FEATURES

For electric vehicles, the app provides tools to help you monitor your charge status, plan a route, find charging stations and more.

  1. At-a-glance EV status and charge information appears right on the app’s home screen on the My Vehicle tab.
  2. Tap the Map icon at the bottom of the screen to find EV features.

For your security, please don’t include personal info such as phone number, address or credit card details.
