Buick Adds Yelp Reservations App to Infotainment System

Yelp Reservations App

Ever wanted the convenience of making restaurant reservations on the go? Now you can with their Buick Infotainment System. GM recently announced plans to add the Yelp Reservations app to the GM Infotainment System marketplace, allowing drivers of GM vehicles to reserve tables without having to pick up the phone.

The process is fairly simple: the app automatically searches for and detects all restaurants within a 25-mile radius. Drivers can then search by cuisine type to narrow their search. Once the driver selects a restaurant, they can view the average rating for the restaurant, place a time for the restaurant, and reserve seats (with a maximum cap of ten people). If you have any questions about this process, the app gives drivers the option of calling the restaurant to complete the reservation over the phone.

Aside from the Yelp Reservations app, the Buick Infotainment System also allows for conveniences such as ordering ahead at takeout places (or at Starbucks). You can even pay for gas from inside your vehicle, for a more secure alternative to paying at the pump. The Marketplace, including the new Yelp app, is offered on all 2017 or newer GM vehicles.
