Seriously GM? Now the MyChevrolet app is going down the same road as MyVolt

So I'm sure most of us who like to keep their car connected and enjoy stats has used the OnStar for remote start, MyVolt, or MyChevrolet.

Both OnStar and MyVolt being seemingly abandoned and have never worked correctly for me (especially the website)

A fellow member told me about MyChevrolet and holy crap it looked like a well designed page/app/system all in one to see what you wanted to see and do what you wanted to do.

Sign in today to check my range/status/etc and I was greeted with this:

The data on the app and the website sync everything except the MPG, it's showing I only get 38.9mpg, when the actual MPG on the website is 121mpg (same as what the car itself it saying)

Tried clearing the cache, reinstalled the app, looks like the same people who programmed all the other things for Chevy got their hands on this one too.

Seriously -- how bad do you have to screw up to have three seperate platforms for viewing vehicle data, and none of them ever work correctly?

I know there's voltstats, but I can't remote start from there, lol

I drive 66 miles round trip for work. I use roughly the same amount of gas, .4 gals. Work has yet to put in an outside 120vac outlet that I can use also. My lifetime MPG is 90. I am currently at 130MPG on this tank.

I have no issues with the OnStar app for my Iphone 6. I am still using IOS ver. 8.0, which might be the difference. Once apple went to version 10, I heard about a lot of issues with apps working then not working correctly.

I just check myChevrolet app and it is work fine. The data between the two match.

Yes I run my battery all the way down during my commute. I have not seen any degradation of the battery. I do not use hold mode or Mountain mode. I purchased my 2013 at the end of Aug of 2015. During the summer the best I have done is 58 Miles on a charge. During the Winter I am averaging around 34, depending on the temperature and which way I go. My commute in the morning is down hill, (toward the Illinois river).

Depending on how much time I have I can either use the highway, 65+ mph, or use city streets, 45 mph. Of course when using the Highway I get less miles. Today I had 10 miles left over, using the highway, when I got to work. Yesterday I had 18 miles left over using city streets. Temps were about the same, mid 30's. I am the opposite of Accelerus, I run on Battery until it is empty and gas till I get home. I find that I use less gas.
