Hi all, I'm sure we have all heard that the Onstar system in the pre-2004 cars will not be upgradable by GM because they have not offered an upgrade plan. Well, a PA couple have decided that GM wasn't exactly planning properly when they bought their 2002 Escalade with an analog only system. They are suing because thereis no upgrade plan for their vehicle.
If you think about it, it was kind of stupid that GM offered an analog only Onstar system when digital was the newer, more advanced network. Now that AMPs (analog) service is shutting down, so will all the analog devices.
Comments? I would like to see an upgrade path for our cars. While I currently don't subscribe because I knew the system was going to be eliminated in 2008, I think it'* a decent safety feature I might pay for.
