With OnStar onboard a GM vehicle you can share your habits with your insurance company and get discounts
GM revealed some of the coolest new tech gadgets at the International Consumer Electronic Show held in Los Vegas such as the wondrous system which predicts machinery failure before it comes to a halt and the 2016 Chevy Volt. The maker also told about the new OnStar tech which actually tracks your driving routines and also utilizes your address to send retail coupons.
First of the wonderful offerings is a smart driver service which would monitor your driving habits for a period of 90 days in your OnStar technology fitted GM vehicle of 2013 makes or latest. The ones who opt for the program will get a report at the end of the period which would compare the driver’s to other drivers averaged and anonymous habits. From here onward drivers can share the report with the respective insurance companies to get a good driver discount on their vehicle insurance.
The second wonder is the program named AtYourServie which it partners with OnStar and big brand retail stores and provides info, money saving values related to particular destinations, convenience when it is pressed into service this spring. This programs aid to get coupons when you search Dunkin Donuts, hotel reservations via priceline.com and coupons from location-based shopping courtesy Entertainment Book and RetailMeNot.
GM made great efforts to show the privacy measures which it has built in the above systems. The program of driver monitoring is activated only by customer request, and the resulting report is only dispatched to the customer who afterward could send it the chosen insurance company. From the other program AtYourService, the information related to customer is not transferred to retailers. You will get a coupon in your email box if you ask the OnStar for direction to a partnered retailer. This fact was not depicted clearly in our original report.
