General Motors expands access to OnStar Guardian app

General Motors announced that its OnStar Guardian mobile app is now available to all customers in the United States and Canada. The app will cost $15 a month after a one-month trial.

Customers without a GM vehicle can stay protected and connected from anywhere and in any vehicle through the OnStar Guardian app. The expansion of OnStar Guardian, which first launched in June 2020, is part of GM’s commitment to focus on opportunities beyond vehicle sales to make the road — and the world — a safer place.

With OnStar Guardian, customers can access key OnStar safety and security services on their mobile device and get help when they need it from an OnStar Advisor. Customers can also share these features with others by adding up to seven additional people to the My Family section within the Guardian app.

OnStar Guardian offers Mobile Crash Response, which uses smartphone sensors to detect crashes and alert an Emergency-Certified OnStar Advisor. OnStar Guardian also will launch new features this month in Location Status, including the ability to save and share favorite locations on the app’s embedded map and receive notifications for destination departures and arrivals of family and friends.

“We are excited to deliver the power and promise of OnStar’s key safety features to more people in more places with the expanded launch of OnStar Guardian. Over the past year, we’ve heard incredible stories that illustrate how OnStar Guardian has helped our members. As pandemic-related restrictions relax and people begin to travel again, we understand it is important that everyone feels protected and connected. That is why we are expanding this subscription offering based on our expansive insights.” – Santiago Chamorro, GM vice president of Global Connected Services.
