Family Link Service from OnStar

 “Family Link” Service from OnStar®

OnStar

The new “Family Link” service from OnStar allows families to stay connected no matter where they roam.

Shelby and I tested out the system and we were both impressed with the ability to stay in touch and relieve parental stress as well.

For only $3.99 per month, Family Link gives you unique access to the location of your OnStar-equipped vehicles along with the option to receive scheduled email or text message alerts about those vehicles. That means peace of mind for you and your loved ones while they’re on the road.

Here’s how it works:

Onstar

Vehicle Location

Find out where your loved one is at any time with Vehicle Locate. Just access Family Link online to view a map with the vehicle’s exact location.

·     If you’ve got a new driver in the house, Vehicle Locate gives you peace of mind as he takes to the road.

·     If your family member is driving across the state to visit a friend, use the Vehicle Locate feature to check on her progress.

·     If your spouse is unreachable and driving in inclement weather, the Vehicle Locate feature can help you determine when he might be home safe and sound.

Vehicle Location Alert

Set up email or text message notifications and the Vehicle Location Alert feature will let you know the location of your loved one’s vehicle. You can choose the day, time and frequency of the alerts.

·     If your teen driver is supposed to arrive at school every day at 8:00am, use a Vehicle Location Alert and get a text every day regarding the vehicle’s location—without you or your teen picking up the phone.

Family Link vehicle information is kept private, so only you and those you authorize will know the location of the vehicles on your OnStar Account.

The system worked flawlessly and if you own a GM vehicle, this is well worth the minimal insurance to protect any family member.
