OnStar FMV Product
Because of GM’s commitment to continuous safety — offering protection before, during, and after collisions — OnStar became standard in the full range of GM retail cars, trucks, and SUVs in the United States. Now OnStar is extending their product to customers that wish to install their product aftermarket, giving dealers the opportunity to offer this unique safety product to their customers.
The new OnStar mirror is certified to work on 99 percent of the top 20 selling non-GM vehicles made during the last 10 years — approximately 55 million cars and trucks. Starting this spring, consumers will have the option to experience OnStar services within most non-GM vehicles.
OnStar’s mirror has a built-in accelerometer to detect a crash. It then automatically notifies a live operator who can call emergency responders. Users can press a button for advice in emergency situations. They also get turn-by-turn navigation, stolen vehicle assistance, roadside assistance and hands free calling, including Bluetooth connectivity.
The installation in a OnStar supported vehicle involves the careful removal of the current mirror and replacement with the OnStar mirror. There is hookup to power, ground and ignition as well as registration involved with the process. Some models may also come with optional features like a microphone. Your Purchase order and tech sheet should reflect this change.
Automatic Crash Response
In a crash, air bag sensors can automatically alert OnStar. An Advisor is immediately connected into your vehicle to see if you are okay, and can direct emergency help to your exact GPS location – even if you are unable to ask for it. On most newer models, built-in crash sensors can also automatically send an alert even if air bags do not deploy, and transmit critical crash details.
Turn By Turn Navigation
It can happen to anyone. You take a wrong exit. Or you realize you “almost” know the way. Or you hit an unexpected detour. Now what? Be sure of your directions with built-in Turn-By-Turn Navigation.
•Simple. Tell the Advisor your destination — get directions sent to your vehicle. That’s it. See upcoming turns and street names displayed on the Driver Information Center or radio. Wrong turn? Turn-By-Turn knows it and helps get you back on track automatically.
