General Motors Expands Access to OnStar Guardian App


General Motors announced its OnStar Guardian mobile app is now available to anyone in Canada and the United States with an eligible plan and a compatible Apple or Android smartphone device.

Now, customers in any brand of vehicle can stay protected and connected from anywhere and in any vehicle through the OnStar Guardian app.

With OnStar Guardian app, customers can access key OnStar safety services right on their mobile device and get help when they need it from an OnStar advisor. Customers can also share these features with others by adding up to seven additional family and friends to the My Family section within the app, giving them added peace of mind.

OnStar Guardian offers Mobile Crash Response, which uses smartphone sensors designed to detect crashes and alert an Emergency-Certified advisor. The app will also launch new features this month in Location Status, including the ability to save and share favourite locations on the app’s embedded map and receive notifications for destination departures and arrivals of family and friends.

“With the expanded launch of OnStar Guardian, OnStar’s key safety features are now available to keep more Canadians safe and secure beyond their vehicles” said Mike Speranzini, director of Global Connected Services & Customer Experience. “OnStar helps people across this country every day in amazing ways and our members and their loved ones can bring the power of OnStar with them, wherever they go to feel protected and connected.”

OnStar Guardian is currently available to OnStar members in Canada and the U.S. who are enrolled in a Safety & Security plan. For those without a GM vehicle, a standalone subscription plan is available to anyone in Canada and the U.S. Anyone can download the app and sign up for the service through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
