How do you put the app on the car's screen? I have been using on only my phone.

Plug your Android phone into a front USB port, run Android Auto on your phone, click the myChevy App on your infotainment screen, and open Energy Assist.

Has anyone seen/had complaints about the NEW (Early 2021) My Chevy app? Maybe the screen is a bit nicer (or cleverer or something) but, well, it mostly does not work for me, and/or is intermittent.

I can get the Bolt to start (precondition) remotely sometimes. It may lock or beep--have not tried. But here is my list of fails:

1) At one point I got a prompt to set up keypass (I had set it up on the old app, but hey...). When I tried it failed to connect. Now I can't even see a way to try to set it up.

2) Status NEVER downloads. It just has the spinning circle of death.

3) I see no sign of the navigation/charging station part the used to be on the old app.

4) If I plug my iPhone into the USB on the car, and select the Chevy app on the Car Play screen, it tells me to open the app on the phone and log in. I do that, but nothing happens. It keeps telling me to do that.

5) The app keeps asking for my pin. Even if I select "Use Face ID" it never does.

6) The "energy" tab at the bottom crashes the app.

7) "More" just gives me Facebook, Instagram etc. I assume alternate ways to login?

Grrrrr. Any thoughts?

Just got version 5.01 in IOS today. Ugly dark mode, things have been moved around, and tire pressure is gone, but it seems to work. Had to set up KeyPass [again]. Let's see if this update fixes the loss of setup that's been going on for a few months now.

BTW, I finally re-installed the app for the 3rd time and it works now. I had to delete the KeyPass pairing in bluetooth and then re-pair it. Not sure if that was the problem. But Energy Assist is nearly useless.

There is a Tire Pressure section under "Vehicle Status" but right not it seems not to be filled in. Not "odometer" either.

On the Vehicle Status screen, try swiping down to refresh...?

Tried that. "Unexpected server response. Please Log On again. If the issue persists, please contact support for assisstance." I suppose I should do that.

I don't have a 'vehicle status' section. I do have the new "dark mode" MyChevy app ver 5.01. I do have odometer current and life, along with efficiency.

Look to the top right of the picture you took right above the red triangle. You have to scroll over a bit to click on it.

Thx. That brings up "recommended Services" - the battery recall and tire rotation. If I click on "Done" then I get the old style display with tire pressure [I didn't get that far last time]. Even when I uncheck those service items, it still insists that I click thru them to get to the tire pressure. Oh well...

Just got update on my Android. All functions appear to be working and the link for "Arizona Drivers" that used to go to a 404 error now goes to an ad for Onstar Insurance.

I did notice that when looking at vehicle status it now automatically initiated an update instead of having to manually force it to update.

I love the new app! Just updated today. Looks like they listened to some of our requests. There was a guy on here asking for feedback sometime ago.

Quick hitters:
1. Charge status is automatic (no more of that annoying "updating" pinwheel)
2. Precondition now has a countdown timer
3. Like the sleeker look

Overall this is much better than what we had previously.

I hate dark mode. Imagine reading a book or newspaper where the page is black and the text is white. Just because you can do it doesn't mean you should...
