ABOUT ONSTAR SMART DRIVER

OnStar Smart Driver is an optional service that provides customers with information about their driving behavior to help them maximize their vehicle’s overall performance, reduce vehicle wear and tear and encourage safer driving. 
 
Customers in eligible vehicles who enroll in OnStar Smart Driver will be able to earn achievements, maintain safe-driving Streaks, get valuable feedback with each trip and access their driving data — all from their myChevrolet, myBuick, myGMC or myCadillac mobile apps. Enrollment in OnStar Smart Driver is free. Customers who subscribe to an eligible OnStar service plan — Premium, Essentials, Safety & Security, Connected Vehicle or Remote Access—can also access OnStar Smart Driver+, which offers additional insights.


HOW IT WORKS

You can access your OnStar Smart Driver information on the mobile apps, which are compatible with most Android and Apple devices.

From the app’s home screen, tap the OnStar Smart Driver widget. There, you can review trip statistics and achievements to help improve your driving habits. If you have OnStar Smart Driver+ with an eligible subscription, you can also review a monthly summary.

Click on “Account,” scroll down and click on “Data & Privacy.” Scroll to “OnStar Smart Driver” and select “Manage Settings.” From there, switch off the “OnStar Smart Driver” toggle.

VIEWING DATA DISPLAYS

Once you’re enrolled, you can access driving data your vehicle collected. At the top of your screen is a display of trips taken and Badges earned.

Underneath are two tabs: Achievements and Trip Stats

  • Tap the Trip Stats tab to see statistics about your trip, including a map that displays hard acceleration and hard braking events (map and historical trip data require paid subscription)
  • Tap the Achievements tab to view “Challenges” (rings representing your progress toward Badges) and a summary of your Streaks
  • Tap "Monthly Report” under “Reports” to view a monthly summary of your driving behaviors (requires paid subscription)

The Trip Stats screen will now show driving information such as:

  • Total miles driven for last trip
  • Total miles driven for past trips
  • Hard braking incidents
  • Late night drives (between 12 and 4 a.m.)

The Achievements screen will show:

  • Challenges: These appear as a series of rings being filled in
  • Graphics: These appear in the center of the rings to signify the smart driving category you’re working on (e.g., a foot on a brake pedal symbolizes hard braking)
  • Completed circles: These indicate you’ve achieved the goal of the category shown in the center
  • Your current best Streaks and all-time best driving behaviors

The Monthly Report Screen gives a summary of driving behaviors over the month (requires a paid subscription).


For your security, please don’t include personal info such as phone number, address or credit card details.
