Have you every worried about a loved one who is making a long trip or driving in poor weather conditions? Maybe you have a new driver in the family and want to ensure their safety. Now you can have peace of mind with OnStar Family Link. This service is an opt-in extension to your monthly OnStar subscription and is made available to you for a nominal fee. With no limit to the number of vehicles you can add, you will always be able to track your vehicle on the road without bothering the driver.
Upon sign up, you will be given direct access to the location of your vehicle by viewing a map, as well as the ability to schedule email or text message notifications with Family Link’s unique “Vehicle Location Alert”. You can even personalize the system by setting the day, time and frequency of your alerts.
This year in the United States, OnStar was awarded a 2013 Silver Edison Award for the Family Link service. Jon Lauckner, GM’s chief technology officer and vice-president of Global Research & Development was quoted as saying “These awards reaffirm our ability to lead in the transformation of the automotive industry with a commitment to innovation that benefits our customers around the globe”.
