If only VW did something like this.... youd think they would considering the recent issues.

Will try and see how it goes. Thanks, not sure why people would TD this

Pretty sure this is standard. For instance, our two GM vehicles (2014 Chevy and 2015 GMC) both have all of the listed benefits despite being outside of the first six months or first year promo.

You get 3 years of Basic plan - not worth much.

"Basic Plan includes select features of RemoteLink mobile app, Advanced Diagnostics and Dealer Maintenance Notification, but does not include emergency, security or navigation."

I love using the RemoteLink mobile app. It's the only feature I want with my onstar tbh.

Exactly this.

So if you crash, they know, but Emergency Notification is not included so they are not going to call the police. Capitalism.

Ford gives away emergency notification so long as you pair your phone with the bluetooth.

My biggest concern with OnStar is that they own all the data they can access from the car... this means they are collecting all my driving data, and will give it to "anyone" if asked. For this reason, I have NOT activated the service - I love the idea of the RemoteLink, but I drive fast...

Am I the only one who is concerned with this?

Also, with the hardware already in the vehicle, do they have the ability to "always" use the vehicle recovery capabilities, or is that yet-another thing to sign up for and pay for? I'm asking this in relation to the potential vehicle recovery discount the insurance company might give...

I may have to TD this deal do to the fact your only getting half the onstar service. Basically its just basic crap.No Navigation or emergency help. OP needs to fix the title to reflect this or add "BASIC" in the title

Thanks OP. Repped.

Online activation is available as well. Just make sure you have your VIN handy.

Just re-activated on my 2011 Camaro. RemoteLink was the only thing I really used so this is a great deal for me.

And you don't think the black box of your vehicle isn't already collecting that same data and can be accessed if necessary? Time for you to buy 70's cars if that's your concern.
