Follow these simple steps to get even more out of OnStar

As an OnStar Member, you’re familiar with the added peace of mind that comes from knowing you can get help if you’re in a crash* or need Roadside Assistance.* But did you know there’s so much more that OnStar can do to help you on the road? Here are a few ways to get the most out of being an OnStar Member.

Update your information: Being involved in a crash can be a frightening and disorienting experience. Adding an emergency contact to your OnStar account, whether it’s a spouse, friend or loved one, can ease some of that anxiety, allowing the OnStar Advisor to get them on the line for you if something happens. You may also want to add your insurance agent’s contact information so you can let them know and start the claims process quickly.

Take OnStar on the go:

Download the OnStar Guardian app* to get added peace of mind in the palm of your hand. Whether you’re in a friend’s car, in a ride-share, or out walking or biking, the Guardian app gives you access to a number of features, including the ability to call an Advisor from anywhere.

Store our number: Save our toll-free number, 1.888.4ONSTAR (1.888.466.7827), as a contact in your phone or carry it in your wallet so you can get in touch with us if you lock your keys in your vehicle and need it unlocked. Or, if your vehicle is stolen, you can call our toll-free number and have an Advisor assist police in locating and recovering your vehicle.*

Be a Good Samaritan:

As an OnStar Member, you can use the service to help others — even if they don’t have OnStar. Push your red Emergency Button* to help stranded motorists, report a crash along your route or even get help for a lost animal. Being a Good Samaritan is a great way to use OnStar to help make the road safe for everyone.

Sign up for Theft Alarm Notification: If you have the Safety & Security Plan,* you can sign up to receive alerts if your vehicle alarm goes off. Theft Alarm Notification* will let you know if your alarm sounds, giving you a chance to react quickly and alert authorities.
