If you want the benefits of the OnStar system, such as emergency services and turn-by-turn navigation, but your car didn't come with OnStar hope is not lost. OnStar FMV (For My Vehicle) will be available this week.
Launching July 24, OnStar FMV will be available at Best Buy for $299.99, plus $75 for installation. Service plans for OnStar FMV will start at $18.95 a month, or $199 a year.
"The wait is over," OnStar President Linda Marshall said in a press release. "Since we announced OnStar FMV at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, thousands of people have signed up to be notified when this innovative product is ready to buy. Now, through Best Buy, they can enhance their Fords, Toyotas, Chryslers and other brands with the power of OnStar."
OnStar, best known as a General Motors premium feature, comes standard in new Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles.
OnStar FMV offers the same services as the factory-installed version, including automatic crash response, turn-by-turn navigation, hands-free calling, stolen-vehicle location assistance, emergency services, and roadside assistance.
