I have not used the emergency button... But I loved it when it was free. I don't pay per month.. In my truck a pay for minutes and it seems to prolong our service with the e-mail notification.

I used it until the free year was up. Then I cheaped out.

Don't get me wrong it is a great service and if it was in the wifes vehicle you bet I would have it. But I know how to take care of myself if the vehicle breaks down. Plus I have a cell phone and I'm never more than 15 miles away from the next town.

I love having the OnStar for my fiance.. She's not exactly mechanically inclined.. AT ALL..

But its nice to get updates on the car, and let her use it if she is in an emergency without me. We haven't decided if after the first year we will keep it or not..

We did just renew our OnStar Navigation.. It was only like $7.50 a month, and we use it enough that we thought it was worth it.

Siris radio will be one once the 3 months is up... We both have Ipods so no need for that..

Awesome. We like peektures!
But that does not take away from the fact that shaggy has not posted any photos...

I like it for it being able to connect when even a cell phone could not, like when I am headed up to Yellowstone.
Been on some state HWY that you could drive for an hour without seeing anyone.
Hit a deer, bison, bear or anything like that some dark night or get whacked by a drunk and not be able to call anyone you do have a chance if onstar detects the crash.
From what I have read Onstar has more then just the air bag detectors on the newer cars.
