NEW ONSTAR GUARDIAN APP EXPANDS ACCESS TO SAFETY SERVICES FOR GMC OWNERS

SHARE:

The added peace of mind GMC owners get from OnStar®† can now be accessed from the palm of your hand, with the new OnStar Guardian app. Offering key OnStar safety services to anyone, the Guardian app can be used regardless of where you are or what brand of vehicle you’re in.

So, whether you’re out with friends, in a ride share, walking the dog or sitting at home relaxing, OnStar is always ready to help. The Guardian app can be found in the App Store for Apple devices or on Google Play for Android devices.

Once downloaded to a compatible mobile device, you can then add up to seven loved ones to the “My Family” group. This will allow you and your family to experience key OnStar safety services:

Mobile Crash Response: If you or one of your loved ones need help following a crash — regardless of vehicle — the Guardian app is here to help. The app is designed to use your smartphone’s sensors to detect a crash and alert an OnStar Emergency-Certified Advisor. The Advisor will call your phone, connect with first responders and provide them with your location — even if you can’t reach your phone.

Roadside Assistance: Use the Guardian app to request roadside assistance from virtually anywhere. You or a loved one can get a tow, a battery charge, help with a flat tire, have the doors unlocked or even get fuel if you run out of gas.

Emergency Services: When the unexpected happens, the Guardian app is there for you and your family. Pushing the app’s red Emergency button connects you to an OnStar Emergency-Certified Advisor, a trained professional who can provide verbal assistance, as well as contact first responders and give your location. Advisors are ready to help 24/7 and are certified by the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch. The app’s emergency button also allows you to be a Good Samaritan and call for help to assist others.

Location Status: Put your mind at ease by knowing your loved ones are safe and sound with a real-time location map. The My Family group allows members to add an elderly parent, teenage children or a best friend. Then, by using Location Status, you can view and share location information with others in the My Family group. Location Status also provides real-time information, such as if they’re traveling or if a cell phone battery is running low. Everyone you add to the My Family group can stay connected and keep in touch with each other through the app.
