Determining trim level?

Hi all,

I'm looking at buying a used Volt. I know in some of my other car-shopping adventures, I've found cars that are mis-listed, where the trim level is wrong.

What is the best way to definitively determine what trim level a Volt is by looking at pictures or particular listed options?

There is also a way to tell trim level and features from the VIN. This is helpful for when you are shopping online because sometimes the pictures and the descriptions are off. Search the forums and you'll find a guide to VIN.
That varies a lot by year. The earliest (2011, 2012) you can basically only tell "nav" or "no nav", and the former implied Bose but the latter didn't mean "no Bose". All the rest of the options were not coded into the VIN.
What do I need to be able to communicate with the car via one of the mobile apps? Was that there in 2015, or would a Gen 2 be required? What about a subscription?
You mean for unlocking doors and seeing if it's done charging? Any Volt, a smartphone, an active OnStar subscription and a little luck. Because that whole system is... er.... "rich, and promotes growth". Yes...
Excellent. Thanks! I see you're pretty close to me. Maybe I'll see you on the road! Currently driving an i3, but replacing it with a Volt in the next week.
I see one i3 pretty regularly -- commuter car that parks in my neighborhood (south of Third Ward) during at least some workdays. And there's at least six Volts that I see pretty often. Another silver one, two different black ones (they have different bumper stickers), two white ones (one has MCTS badging on it), and a red.
