How to Use OnStar To Get Turn-by-Turn Navigation Directions

OnStar turn by turn navigation

Picture yourself in an unfamiliar city. You need to find your hotel. Then, you realize you have lost your smartphone. Good thing your car has the OnStar Safety & Security Plan. Read on to learn how this plan can save the day, and then use this page to browse our used and new inventory for vehicles equipped with OnStar Connected technology. As always, feel free to contact us with your questions about OnStar safety features.

At Your Service 24/7

The OnStar Safety & Security plan is a subscription service available to owners of OnStar-equipped General Motors cars, trucks, and SUVs. As a plan member, you can take advantage of OnStar safety features such as Automatic Crash Response, Roadside Assistance, and Emergency Services. If you are a tired traveller seeking a hotel, one more service stands out: Turn-by-Turn Navigation.

To Everywhere: Turn, Turn, Turn

Turn-by-Turn Navigation harnesses the GPS satellite system, the OnStar Connected technology of your vehicle, and a database of over 1 million locations. The product of more than 20 years, this ever-expanding database comprises businesses, points of interest, and even places with no formal address.

One-Button Simplicity

Putting Turn-by-Turn Navigation to work for you could not be simpler. Press the blue OnStar button. Your advisor will answer you - a living, breathing human, not a robot. You can then tell your advisor where you are headed. In a few moments, your advisor will download the directions to your vehicle. As you make your way to your destination, you will hear the turns called out on your sound system. If your car comes equipped with a factory-installed navigation system, you will also see your route displayed on the screen. By now, you probably see two enormous virtues Turn-by-Turn navigation holds over connected devices. First, you can access the service without pulling over and stopping. Second, you don't need to know the address of your destination. Give your advisor a place name, and then take full advantage of the massive OnStar database. That is mighty useful if you find yourself without that smartphone.
