Is OnStar worth the money?

Recommended Posts

Can the monthly fee be negotiated like siriusxm?  On the fence about what I want to keep if any

I keep the $15 2G hotspot data; streaming  a movie or doing work on a trip to FL is nice.

I don’t even think that’s an option anymore unless your grandfathered in

I added my truck to my ATT wireless plan ($10 per month) so it can share minutes and data with my other cell phones. I don't carry a smart phone. I then connect a Trac phone I never registered (my guinea pig) to the trucks wifi and can use Android Auto.

 

So its going cell tower to truck over cellular, truck to cell phone over wifi, then cell phone back to the truck using ???. Not sure if its wifi, or maybe bluetooth. Probably wifi. I use it mostly for google maps. Works pretty good unless I lose the cell tower signal. But there is a way to download google maps for off line use when that happens.

 

What I would really like to do is remote the display from a Garmin Oregon to the trucks display so I can look at detailed topographic maps. That would be way cool.
