GM OnStar goes turn-by-turn at Chicago Auto Show

For the tenth anniversary of the OnStar service this week, GM is announcing automated turn-by-turn navigation in selected 2006 vehicles, and nearly all 2007 models.

Unlike today's scenario, where an OnStar representative manually provides turn-by-turn directions to an OnStar subscriber, the new service is semi-automated - the subscriber gives the OnStar rep the desired destination, the rep downloads the directions to the car, and the in-car system takes over from there.

If you want the full scoop, check out GM's Fastlane Blog, where you can hear OnStar president Chet Huber's podcast about the new service.

The new service package will likely be priced at somewhere between $200 and $400 per year.
