Techies get another reason to love the Volt. Chevrolet and OnStar have developed apps for the Apple iPhone, Motorola Droid and Blackberry Storm. Presumably there will be apps for other phones running Android or Blackberry OS but for now only those three phones are supported.
The app will do a range of things including allowing users to monitor their driving stats, remotely start the car and schedule charging intervals. The car maintains contact with the phone via OnStar's real-time data connection

It’s inevitable. You’re driving along all of a sudden the familiar outline of a Crown Vic is sitting at the side of the road. All of a sudden the hyper-sensitivity to anything you could possibly be doing wrong kicks in and your brain starts listing off every minor traffic violation you’ve committed in the last fifty miles. If you happen to be going slightly faster than speed limit because you weren’t being judicious enough in monitoring your speed, or you were trying to pass or maybe you just had the Motorhead up too loud you might panic and pump the brakes, slowing down to below the speed limit “just to be safe.”
