same here. I could care less if they know where I am or how fast I get there. I like my OnStar features, I like the fact the price remains the same after 6 years. I like the respect and service they have given me with the few questions I've had. I didn't understand the pricing/fee'* for the 100 minute a month deal. I called and they took off the fee'* FCC charges I wasn't told about and gave me 3 months free service for the misunderstanding. I like OnStar. If they get make a few bucks off knowing I went to Wally and it took me 19 instead of 26 minutes and keep me @ $18.95/month..... whatever.

Where I live now, I don't really care. When I move, I will care.

Anyway, I don't have to worry about it. I took it out of the Bonne anyway a long time ago just because. The truck doesn't have it at all.

Love my hands free phone, have had it unlocked 3 times, and used it several times to notify police of accidents and send a stranded car help. It gives me peace of mind the rare times the wife has to use it. I guess if I was running around town selling crack out of the trunk I would care. LOL.

1) I have bluetooth
2) I don't lock my keys in my car (But I'm not old like you )
3) I would use my cell phone to notify the cops if I saw something.


It doesn't matter what I'm doing, legal or not legal. NOBODY has the right to spy on me. It'* the same as not giving cops the go ahead to search my car. Yeah, I have nothing to hide, but the 4th amendment is there for a reason.

" It gives me peace of mind the rare times the wife has to use it."

Bingo. That is the critical feature that makes OnStar worthwhile. The USA is changing, safety and security levels are rising. A new trend is to jump in front of a woman driven vehicle and take her jewelry. OnStar is the quickest action of any. I know many will say the quickest action is to floor the accelerator or pull a sidearm. Those are not always seamless courses of action, but the Onstar is.

Sounds like you're buying the bullshit that'* being fed to you by mainstream media.

You probably think the TSA is a good idea too huh?

No, I am a Provost Marshal. It is what I do for a living. What exactly do you do for a living?
