OnStar: Automatic Crash Response For Your New Car or Truck

February 10th, 2010 by

Did you know that every GM vehicle comes equipped with OnStar. Now in order to have all the benefits that OnStar has to offer you must subscribe to the services. Some of these services can enhance your driving and ownership experience as well as aid you if you are in an accident. OnStar now offers Automatic Crash Response. Basically should you ever happen to be in a car or truck accident, built-in vehicle sensors will automatically alert an OnStar Advisor and give them all of the critical details of your car accident. OnStar will then contact you to make sure that you are ok and see if you need any help. If help is required or you can not respond, then OnStar will contact 911 with your GPS location so that they may direct the emergency crews to you. When you are visiting your Cincinnati Cadillac Dealer you should ask about all the benefits of being a subscriber of OnStar. I think you will be pleasantly surprised about all the wonderful things OnStar has to offer.

Here’s how the technology works:

OnStar Technology – With more than two million subscribers, OnStar is the leading provider of telematics services in the United States. Telematics is the transmission of data communications between systems and devices. OnStar’s in-vehicle safety, security, and information services use Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite and cellular technology to link the vehicle and driver to the OnStar Center. At the OnStar Center, advisors offer real-time, personalized help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
