Onstar GMC  

General Motors vehicles include a feature designed with safety, convenience, and ease of use in mind. The OnStar system comes with several different uses that can be utilized in several scenarios. If you’ve ever owned or leased a vehicle with OnStar, then you’re probably interested in using its features with your GMC. Let’s take a more in-depth look into the benefits of a vehicle with OnStar. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you may find yourself seeking out this option.

Receiving Help After an Accident

While your GMC vehicle is built with plenty of safety features, there may come a time when you’re involved in a serious wreck. If you can’t gain access to your phone, you can press the OnStar button to notify an operator you need help. The OnStar staff can also sense if you’ve been involved in an accident, but you cannot respond. They will alert local law enforcement that you need assistance at whatever location you’re at.

Finding Your Stolen Vehicle

If your vehicle was stolen, OnStar has some features that can help with recovering it. Stolen Vehicle Technology sends you a text message or an email if the alarm is sounding without you being present. Remote Ignition Block will prevent a thief from starting your engine if they can gain access to your automobile. This renders it completely useless. You can also utilize Stolen Vehicle Slowdown. If you report your vehicle stolen when it’s already gone, OnStar can slow down your engine as it is being driven away. This allows the police to utilize the reported location of your vehicle to track down the person who took it.

Navigation Assistance

There may come a time when you are lost in an area you’ve never been in before. Your phone may not be accessible as you’re driving, so all you have to do is press your OnStar button. Once you’re connected to someone, they can provide you with directions to help you find your way again.
