I read that, like the Tesla, the Volt seems to need an internet connection to download updates, send feedback data, etc. Suppose I don't want to pay for OnStar internet service - can you have your Volt connect to your home's wifi while parked to perform the updates etc? I've seen it discussed the other way (using OnStar as your home's internet) but not Home->Volt.

The Volt doesn't need an internet connection. It's like any other car, and for software updates you go to the dealer and they plug in and do the update that way.

No.. The Volt's Internet is a 4G connection and requires service from a carrier.

It would be nice if it enabled data sharing over Bluetooth or WiFi, but that would not fit OnStar's business model ;)

I would imagine some inventive people will work a bit harder to get open VMS or similar systems going now that many 3-yr subscriptions are ending.
