[Video] Onstar – Remote control your car from your Tizen Samsung Gear 2

At the Tizen Developer Conference, Onstar a General Motors subsidiary company, were showing off their car remote control solution, but with a little twist as it was working on a Samsung Gear 2, to control a lovely looking Chevrolet. You now have the remote control features from their RemoteLink service, directly on your wrist 🙂
Your Tizen based Samsung Gear 2 can act as your keyfob for your car, and even if you lock your keys in your car, you still haven’t got a problem. You can use the app to lock, unlock, and start your car remotely, from anywhere using a simple cellular data connection. You can even honk the horn if your having problems locating your car in a busy car park. These Smart watch features will be available to existing Onstar subscribers at no additional cost, which obviously makes sense.


They did not confirm any release dates for the Samsung app at the moment, but didn’t rule out a Summer release. Read more about the Onstar RemoteLink service
