Here’s Cadillac’s take on tech that’s ready to impress.
OnStar® RemoteLink™ App
This ingenious app moves the celebrated OnStar® service into the palm of your hands. Remote start-up (if so equipped), one-click door unlock and a visualization of key vehicle information, including how much gas is in the tank, all combine to make this a must-add to the coveted first screen real estate on any smartphone. Along with an additional online component and an easy link to call in for the much-lauded OnStar® support, this slickly designed app will change how you interact with your car. Beyond the comfort of being there when trouble hits, it’s the day-to-day problem-solvers – such as fluid level and tire pressure check, never accidentally locking the keys in the car again or starting the car to warm up on a freezing day (if so equipped) – that make it the most innovative automotive accessory every new car owner should have.
Compatible with iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®1 and Android™2 devices.
“...OnStar® RemoteLink™ * is a new service that is tied to a free app that you would download to your Android or iPhone to start and it lets you control your vehicle in a number of ways.” - Marc Saltzman, Technology Expert, CFRB 1010 Tech Talk
“...downloading RemoteLink™* would appear to be a no-brainer.” - Chad Sapieha, Technology, The Globe and Mail
*Formerly known as MyLink
Want a pricey bar trick that’s sure to impress your friends? Get Dunhill’s Biometric Wallet, throw it on the table, and ask your friends to try and open it. When they can’t, swipe your fingerprint and voila! The British luxury retailer has created this carbon fibre-made money holder that uses cutting edge security technology to keep it clamped shut. It can also be linked to your mobile phone, with settings that that can send out an alarm if the owner is more than five metres away from it.

Harness the wisdom of crowds, with this recommendation app that takes user reviews of restaurants to give you the lowdown on the community’s experience. It may not feature professional critics, but it’s certainly a good way to narrow choices down, get a quick glance at price points and get a feel for a place before you ever enter.
Compatible with most mobile devices, including iPhone®, iPod touch®1, Android™2 and Blackberry®3.
Free for all mobile platforms
This new Sony app brings the Hulu/Netflix experience to mobile devices using the company’s extensive back catalogue of movies and TV shows. It’s free but ad-supported, so you will see commercials. The only knock is much of the content is definitely older material. That said, it works well, has some pretty great stuff and always beats running out to the video store.
Available on iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®1.
Sonos Speaker System
As music is mostly on computers now, this company’s speaker solutions speak very well to our current tech demands. Tied together with its Zonebridge device, this is a reasonably priced wireless solution that can connect to wherever your music is – and it also comes with all the traditional audio ports. As well, it has a great free app that lets you define zones in your house and control what music is playing where. Check sonos.com for a retailer near you.
Compatible with iPhone®, iPad®1 and Android™2 devices.
