Are You Connected by OnStar



Are You Connected by OnStar? Shelley had the chance to visit the OnStar in Detroit, MI in early November.  She had a great time learning about OnStar and the highlight of her trip was visiting the Command Center.


Are You Connected by OnStar?

My husband and I own a GM Denali and use and LOVE our vehicle and one of the main reasons (next to how well it drives) is OnStar.  There are so many amazing features!  We love the navigation system, safety in knowing we have OnStar in case of an emergency, theft or accident and in the event, we lock our keys in the vehicle we can get immediate assistance just to name a few.  I have never had poor customer service one time with an OnStar call.

OnStar just announced that Chevrolet will be bringing OnStar 4G LTE connectivity to select 2015 Chevrolet vehicles!  This will allow passengers to connect their personal devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.) to high-speed wireless Internet through a Wi-Fi hotspot that is built right into the vehicle.  Your vehicle will become a mobile HUB!  My son will be excited to hear this!  He is always asking us in the car to login Wi-Fi.  This maybe a good excuse to trade in our GM Denali for a new model 🙂

Starting this summer, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette, Impala, Malibu, Volt, Equinox, Silverado, Silverado HD, Spark and Spark EV will be the first GM vehicles to come equipped with OnStar 4G LTE. Even more vehicles will be announced later in the year!

The Wi-Fi hotspot’s connectivity will go with you anywhere there is a 4G LTE signal, it powers multiple devices and is more reliable than a smartphone or mobile hotspot.  If you have ever used a hotspot, you know that is a relief! Passengers can use this connection to stream video content, play games, surf the web and remain connected on their devices virtually anywhere they go. Can you imagine how much easier road trips would be!


This also lets owners access the Chevrolet Appshop to download new apps and run downloaded apps.  The Chevrolet Appshop offers a selection of apps embedded in the vehicle’s infotainment system that are easy to access and optimized for in-vehicle use.  Initial apps include popular music services, weather, news, entertainment, and even vehicle health data.  The weather app sounds amazing!

Apps are uniquely developed for the vehicle, with more audible features and lockouts of attention-consuming features while the vehicle is in motion.  New apps will be made available over time, including ones that use vehicle data to help owners keep their vehicles running stronger, longer and more efficiently.

I just can’t imagine how convenient having OnStar 4G LTE connectivity would be!  As a blogger of course I would LOVE this feature for business purposes.  I would love to utilize this feature at soccer practice!  As far as for my family goes the convenience would be perfect for family vacation or road trips!  I know my husband is going to be interested in a trade it for sure!

    1. We have a Buick Enclave and a Lucerne which both have On-Star. This sounds great but wait until you find out the extra cost for this feature.

  1. Totally love OnStar. It saved my sister. She was in the midst of a stroke and hit the OnStar button and medics arrived in record time to help save her.

  2. Honestly, I’ve never used OnStar but I think the concept is great!
    Now if my car/SUV is going to turn into a WiFi hotspot, we may never get out of it LOL

    I’ll have to share this post with my husband for sure. Maybe get him ready to buy me something new!

  3. I have both Verizon Wireless and OnStar I just haven’t decided which I’m going to disconnect first Verizon or OnStar the car is almost 10 feet away from my iPad and my smart phone and I don’t seem to be able to connect with either of them. But then I guess it’s because I have one of those older cars 2014 Chevy volt. After all it’s three-month-old it must be an older one. I complaint to Verizon many time they just seem to put me off and tell me they’ll send the inspector out to see what the problem is, but he never comes I don’t know. Have a nice day Verizon Wireless
