The RemoteLink Key Fob system from OnStar available in Chevy, Buick and GMC vehicles can do some pretty neat things (you can learn more about what in our post on the subject) but now it’s time to get real. This is a pretty neat device but how can you set up RemoteLink? We have some step by step instructions, and a neat video on some of the cool things you can do with this system.
How Do I Set Up RemoteLink?
First of all, make sure that your vehicle and phone are compatible with the RemoteLink system. Most 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC vehicles have this capability. Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows phones are compatible, depending on the operating system.

You can set up your OnStar username and password here, on the top where it says “Sign Up” (you can also find a complete list of compatible cars and phones on that page).

Next, download the RemoteLink App. It is available on iTunes, Google Play, Blackberry App World or the Windows app store. Be sure to have your username and password ready to go.
Once it is downloaded, you will launch the app and enter your onstar.com username and password. You will also have to enter your OnStar account number and zip code. This can be emailed to you if you don’t remember it.
In the last step you will be encouraged to create a new username and password just for RemoteLink, and then you should be good to go with your new smartphone-to-car connection!
