Before Onstar switched over to AT&T, there was actual usefulness in their high-powered cellular equipment on the CDMA network. Chance of placing a call in a rural, low-signal area with Onstar was really good, much better than with typical handheld cellular phones. Same with trying to get data service...could often get data with Onstar where my cell phone couldn't.
Now OnStar signal is crappy just like everything else on ATT networks and that really ruined it for me.
Onstar navigation service IMO is a joke in the day of Google Maps, Apple Maps, and CarPlay.
The rest of it is alright- Fob commands, diagnostics, but not something I'm really interested in paying $20/month for.
The one good thing is automatic crash response.... Then again, if you caused the accident, you can't throw OnStar out the window, so they're calling the cops anyhow!!! lol
