Thread: Onstar Remote Start
07-22-2012, 08:35 PM #11
I asked the dealer to take my onstar out of my truck when I bought it and they refused. Now that my trial for my onstar is ending they interupt my music when Im driving down the road to push the blue button, they call my cell phone wich I answered one time and told them I dont want it and to not call me again. I also get emails from them telling me that my subscription is ending soon. This stuff forced down our throats is bullcrap. How much did I pay for something I didnt want. Anyone need a onstar module?? Ive got a 2011 model for sale if anyone can tell me how to remove it without any other consequences.

Here's a small quote from that article:
"...this data includes, among many other things, the anonymous aspects of your location, speed, safety belt usage and your credit card information. If you accept the new statement, then third-party marketers, "with whom OnStar contracts with to conduct joint marketing initiatives," also get to access a pool of data from OnStar users..."
These days you can still get a lifetime account but you have to call in and ask about it. Changing sat radios can be done a maximum of three times with a lifetime account and there's a $75.00 charge each time you do it. I don't know if it's availabile for XM or not, but I'd think so given that XM merged with Siriurs in 2008...

I thought you had to pay for onstar to be able to use the GM app. I just don't see where the $40 a month is worth the abilty to start my truck from a great distance.

I think it's kinda funny how many people spend hundreds to thousands on wheels and other mods but then say they don't use onstar because it costs too much. It's $200 a year for the basic or $300 if you choose the directions and connections plan. That plan is way more cost effective than the 2000 upgrade to nav. To me, it's worth every penny. I get the GM family price that saves 50 bucks. That makes the best plan 249. Then it saves me $100 a year on my insurance. So really it's a total cost of 149 a year. Well worth that in my opinion for everything it does. Just my opinion though.
