Vauxhall OnStar

Smartphone Function - Stolen Vehicle Assistance - Automatic Crash Response - Destination Download - Wi-Fi - Vehicle Diagnostics​

OnStar is 'connected car' technology. It enables you to get information on your car, assists with navigation and helps you out in the event of an accident. It is a combination of GPS tracker, telecommunications device and a diagnostic tool. It could be compared to a smartphone teamed up with a 'black box' usually found in airliners.

The system has three buttons: a blue one used to contact an OnStar advisor, a red one used as an SOS button for emergencies and a black 'privacy' button to switch the GPS locator off.

What can OnStar do?

Smartphone Function

Lock or unlock the doors, check oil and fuel levels, or send destination details straight to your Vauxhall's navigation system. You can do all this remotely with a touch or two of OnStar's innovative Smartphone App.

Stolen Vehicle Assistance

If someone steals your car. OnStar can help find it and remotely block the ignition.

SOS - Automatic Crash Response

What would you do if you had an accident and couldn't call for help? The moment your airbag deploys, an OnStar advisor makes contact with you over the hands-free speakerphone. At the same time, the system locates your car - so emergency services can be dispatched to our side if need be.

Destination Download

No more tedious typing addresses! Your OnStar advisor will find any destination in a matter of seconds - and download it directly to your Vauxhall's navigation system.


Vauxhall is the first and only European carmaker in its segment to make a 4G/LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot available in virtually every car in its range. The extra-powerful roof antenna gives you a stable, quick internet connection for up to seven devices.

Vehicle Diagnostics

Whenever you want, you can ask OnStar to remotely check the health of your car.


OnStar is only active as long as you want it to be. Except for emergencies, it will only find your car when you want it to be found.
