OnStar Compliment - OnStar Found My Car
I have had OnStar in my last 2 cars and I used it for directions, hands free calling and once for assistance with a flat tire. I never really realized how valuable the service was until my Yukon car went missing from a department store valet stand.
OnStar was able to locate my car immediately - they stopped the car, (which was on the move)and let the police know where the car was. I had no clue this was possible. After a ton of paperwork I got my car back that evening. OnStar saved the day with their Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown program.
This is what OnStar says about this service.
Featuring New Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown®
Once you report your vehicle stolen, OnStar can use GPS technology to pinpoint its exact location and provide it to authorities to help with its quick and safe recovery. Remote Ignition Block and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown are two industry exclusive technologies available on select 2009 and 2010 vehicles. The Edison Award winning, Remote Ignition Block can prevent the vehicle from being re-started once the engine has been turned off, and if the vehicle is still moving, Stolen vehicle Slowdown can slow-down the stolen vehicle to an idle speed.
