Assistance Post Automobile Accident

There are many safety features in every GMC vehicle that are designed to keep you safe while you’re driving around town. Unfortunately, you’re only as secure as the other motorists that are on the road with you. If you’re in an accident, you can contact OnStar while you’re in your vehicle. They can get in touch with local law enforcement on your behalf. If you are rendered unresponsive during the accident, OnStar can still dispatch help to you. There is technology built into your vehicle that can sense a crash. Even if you don’t say anything to the OnStar person speaking to you, they’ll know to get you help.

Tracking Down Your Stolen Automobile

If someone gains unauthorized access to your GMC while you’re away from your vehicle, OnStar can help you get it back quicker and safer. You will be alerted by email or text message if the alarm on your vehicle is going off. You can determine if this is an emergency or not. Stolen Vehicle Slowdown technology will provide OnStar with the opportunity to slow your engine speed down if you report your vehicle stolen. This will prevent the stolen car from being involved in an accident or from going very far. Remote Ignition Block will allow OnStar to keep your engine off remotely if you have reported the vehicle as stolen.

Accessing Navigation

If you are lost and need assistance, press the blue button on your OnStar module. Someone will help walk you through directions that will get you back en route. This is a much safer way to secure directions than to try fumbling around for your phone while you’re driving.
