Allright....those who have been here for awhile, get someone with Onstar to give 'em a ring and lets figure this out. My curiosity has been peaked!

Well I'll speak for GM!
I've been following this thread in the background for awhile now.
According to the GM Techs I work with.....Onstar can't track "****" like this on your car! BTW! Onstar even has hard time just trying to "FIND" your vehicle to begin with! Onstar would have to be actually monitoring every vehicle to do this! & it doesn't as it doesn't have the manpower to accomplish that!

Yea, ive seen abunch of these.

Quoted from the article "One of the earliest courtroom appearances of a car'* black box came after the high-profile crash that killed former pro football player Jerome Brown in 1992. Brown'* survivors filed a$30 million civil suit that claimed that the air bag on Brown'* high-performance Corvette went off after he hit a pothole and that caused him to hit a tree. Data from the black box showed the air bag deployed on impact as designed, and the survivors lost the case."

note ''1992'', in 1992 the trofeo had more high-tech electronics then of the vette. That One black box saved GM 30 milion bucks, how in hell could GM say no to putting these in?
