Super Bowl organizers have asked that game attendees skip the GPS in favor of the directions printed on their parking passes. That's an awfully analog process for our digital world, but owners of OnStar-equipped General Motors vehicles can still receive turn-by-turn directions. Subscribers will be have "special access" to routes and road closures relayed by specially trained OnStar advisers during the event. You won't need to have the turn-by-turn subscription package to receive this service, either; GM is providing it free of charge just for the big game. Hit the jump to peruse the official OnStar press release.
DALLAS, Jan. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To alleviate confusion over road closures, Super Bowl organizers have asked fans to turn off GPS units and follow directions on their parking passes.
OnStar subscribers, however, will have special access to information on routes and road closures with a simple push of the blue button. Super Bowl organizers have provided specially trained OnStar advisors with the information they'll need to route fans straight to Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday, February 6.
This service will be open to current OnStar subscribers, regardless of their subscription plan.
