"The growth of OnStar is due in large part to our ability to bring to market relevant technologies that meet customers' evolving needs," said Chet Huber, OnStar president. "We've established a strong technology foundation, which serve as the building blocks for future offerings. What began with core safety features such as roadside assistance, emergency services and route support, continues to expand with new offerings and features like Advanced Automatic Crash Notification (AACN), hands-free calling, and OnStar vehicle diagnostics.”
OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics (OVD), which the company rolled out in September, performs routine electronic checkups on the vehicle and sends a monthly report to the owner.
GM plans to have OnStar installed on all its vehicles by the end of 2007.
