General Motors’ telematics arm, OnStar, has quietly revised its subscription plans in the United States and Canada. The subsidiary now offers four plans — Guidance, Security, Protection and the free Basic Plan, which is one plan more than the three plans — Directions & Connections, Safe & Sound, and the free Basic Plan — that it offered before.
Overall, Guidance seems to be a replacement for Directions & Connections, and Security replaces Safe & Sound, with the price point of each plan increasing by $5 per month. Meanwhile, the entry-level Protection plan is new and only offers the Automatic Crash Response service and the Onstar FamilyLink service can be added on to either plan for $3.99 a month. To note, the new plans and pricing changes are only applicable to the U.S. and Canada markets, and do not apply to Mexico or China.
