Get safety and then some

Safety’s important. We’re OnStar, so we obviously get that. But there’s more to life than safety, right? You’ve got Amazon Alexa* — why not use it to start your car? You’ve got stuff to do, so why not save time and check your fuel level or Vehicle Diagnostics* from your phone? With the OnStar Essentials Plan,* you can do all that and more — all for the affordable OnStar cost of membership. How much is OnStar there for you? 24/7 in every way you need us.

Essentials Plan highlights

Automatic Crash Response

If you’re in a crash, we’re with you. Even if you can’t ask for help, we’ll call for help for you.*

Roadside Assistance

Whether you’re out of gas, your tire’s flat or your car just stopped and who knows why, we’ll get you a tow or whatever help you need to get back up and running.* You can share the OnStar Guardian app* with up to seven loved ones* to make sure they have added peace of mind too. 

Remote Access

You and your car will never be out of touch. Use your vehicle mobile app* to start, stop, send directions, see your car’s location and more. Get On-Demand Diagnostics* and help from an Advisor whenever you need it.

Your OnStar Essentials Plan also includes…

OnStar Guardian® App

You’ll have our safety services with you wherever you go — on your phone. Plus, add up to 7 family members, so they’ll have OnStar safety too.*

Turn-by-Turn Navigation

It’s like having your own personal co-pilot. Instead of keying in an address, push your blue OnStar button and tell us where you want to go. We can either send directions to your system or talk you through.*

Emergency Services

That red button? It’s there for you when things are urgent, like a medical problem, safety issue or any crisis situation*. You’re never alone.

Crisis Assist

Hurricane, wildfire, flood, tornado, earthquake — you name it, we’re here to help get you out of it, and we’ll help you contact family members too.*

Stolen Vehicle Assistance

If someone tries messing with your car, we’re on it. We’ll be tracking it and working with the police to slow it down and stop it. Car thieves don’t stand a chance.*

Vehicle Mobile App

Download your Vehicle Mobile App* to your phone, and bam! Now you can lock and unlock your doors, flash the lights and honk the horn, or start and stop your car (if properly equipped).*

Remote Key Fob

Put your car’s key fob controls on your phone.*

Voice Service*

“Alexa, start my car.” That’s right. Use your home’s Amazon Alexa* device to start and stop your car or lock and unlock your doors. You’re ahead of the game before you even leave the house.*

Vehicle Locate

Where’d you park? Did your kid actually go to the library? You can find out — easy. Set boundary notifications, see your car on a map, and set and share custom notifications for arrivals and departures.*

Vehicle Settings

Don’t wait 'til you’re in the car to start messing with the radio presets. Do it right from your vehicle mobile app.* You can customize all your In-Vehicle Apps* that way too.

On-Demand Diagnostics

What the heck does that warning light mean? Push your blue OnStar button, and an Advisor can run a complete system check* to let you know what to do and get you help if you need it.*
