Enter Sweepstakes We're back with another giveaway, this time courtesy of OnStar. The General Motors subsidiary that single handedly created this new industry of bundled safety, security and communications technologies with its integrated OnStar system is now offering that suite of services to every car owner, not just GM customers.

- Automatic Crash Response - Triggered by an accelerometer in the mirror, help is sent automatically
- Turn-by-Turn navigation - Tell an Advisor where you want to go and spoken turn-by-turn directions are provided
- Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance - Uses GPS to track your vehicle
- Roadside Assistance - Help for you and a red button for emergency assistance
- Handsfree Calling - Through OnStar service or through Bluetooth connection to mobile phone
