OnStar expanding availability

Techstination feature for Monday, January 17, 2011

   OnStar is expanding availability.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    It has been a major selling point for GM cars for years.   OnStar provides a variety of safety and navigation services to owners.    But now OnStar has announced it will begin selling an after market mirror…bringing the same features to just about any make and model car.     President Chris Preuss…

“Everything that you know in the OEM mirror that we sell, the three button interface, the speakers, the handsets…all is integrated with Bluetooth.  You get automatic crash response, turn by turn navigation, 24/7 access to our advisors, emergency call support, roadside assistance,  Facebook apps, the ability to go into the virtual advisor back end portal.  All these things in one integrated package.”

The mirror will sell for about 300 dollars….with  monthly service priced at about 19 dollars.   It is slated to arrive late spring or early summer.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
