GM has told its customers it is closing the Marketplace app, which allowed drivers to pay for goods and services through the infotainment system. The app lets them buy things like gas and coffee and make hotel and restaurant reservations through the dashboard. The company will shut down the Marketplace starting in March.
“We routinely review our services to ensure they provide the best experience for our members,” GM told owners in an email. “In that spirit, we have decided to discontinue our Marketplace services.”
The automaker has brought the app to millions of its vehicles in the United States, but drivers don’t seem to like it very much. According to CNBCone engineer said that after the feature was released, active user rates were in the “thousands”.
