GM OnStar

If you’re looking for state-of-the-art telematics on your next vehicle, you need only visit one of the top GMC and Buick dealers near Indianapolis: Andy Mohr Buick GMC. We stock the full lineup of new GMC and Buick vehicles, and nearly all of them give you access to the full suite of OnStar telematics capabilities.

But what is OnStar, and what can it do for you?

OnStar Services

Emergency: Vehicles equipped with OnStar are able to contact emergency services with the push of a button, and they can also automatically notify authorities in the event of an accident. In addition to automatic crash response and crisis assistance, OnStar can send roadside assistance your way if you need it. There are few better routes to peace of mind behind the wheel than knowing OnStar is looking out for you.


Security: Whether you’re driving an entry-level GMC or a top-of-the-line Buick, the risk of car theft is real, and OnStar can help retrieve your car if it has been stolen. With remote ignition locking and stolen vehicle slowdown, a car thief won’t get far with your OnStar-enabled vehicle.


Navigation: OnStar eNav lets you detail your trips ahead of time and have them downloaded right into your vehicle, but if you prefer to fly by the seat of your pants, you can receive turn-by-turn navigation and even have access to 13 million points of interest in case you need to stop for gas or find a hotel along the way.


Connections: The majority of our OnStar enabled vehicles connect directly to a 4G LTE wireless network and deliver WiFi directly to you and your passengers—we think it’s the most comfortable mobile hotspot available. You’ll also have connectivity for handsfree calling via OnStar, the RemoteLink mobile app to keep you connected to your car at all times, and even OnStar’s AtYourService concierge.


Diagnostics: Whether something is actually wrong with your car or you just think that there is, the OnStar diagnostics can clear it up for you. And if you’ve got trouble remembering when you need routine maintenance like tire rotations or oil changes, OnStar can take care of it for you. We love that OnStar can remind you to visit your friendly GMC dealer near Indianapolis the next time your oil change is due.

The OnStar Mobile App

APPIf you think that OnStar’s services are great in the car, wait until you see how useful they can be from your smartphone with the new OnStar RemoteLink mobile app. Available in the Google Play and iOS stores—as well as on select Windows and Blackberry phones—OnStar RemoteLink doubles as a key fob for your vehicle and gives you access to some key features, including:

  • Locking and unlocking your doors
  • Remote starting your vehicle
  • Setting the climate control for maximum comfort
  • Look up vehicle statistics and diagnostics
  • Schedule a service appointment

It’s tough to overstate how convenient it is to be able to unlock and start your car with just a couple of taps on your smartphone as you’re walking to your car.

What Does OnStar Cost?

OnStar comes included with a free trial on the majority of vehicles at your GMC and Buick dealers near Indianapolis, but when that trial expires, OnStar has plans for nearly any kind of driver:

  • Protection: Priced at $19.99/month or available for $199.90/year, this package comes with roadside assistance, automatic crash response, and a direct connection to OnStar Advisors 24/7.
  • Security: Priced at $24.99/month or available for $249.90/year, this package takes the Protection Package and adds on remote engine locking, stolen vehicle slowdown, and stolen vehicle assistance.
  • Guidance: At the top level, OnStar’s Guidance package is priced at $34.99/month or available for $349.90/year and gives you access to all of the above features as well as navigation, OnStar AtYourService concierge, and 30 minutes of handsfree calling every month.

To accommodate the new OnStar 4G LTE WiFi connectivity, you can add on data plans by day, by year, or by usage. OnStar also allows for added handsfree calling minutes or their Family Link service to make sure the people you care about have arrived safely wherever they were headed.

Your Next Vehicle Should Feature OnStar

With all of these advantages, it’s tough for us to imagine a driver choosing a vehicle without OnStar. We think it’s our job as a leader of Buick and GMC dealers near Indianapolis to show you what OnStar is capable of in person and how it can change how you live your life behind the wheel.
