OnStar Family Link is a Great Addition to Your Family
Your family is an important part of your Chevrolet experience. Especially when you have driving-age children.
We understand how parents are. They worry. They’re concerned that their lack of on-road experience may lead to trouble down the line. They’re concerned about their children trying to bend the boundaries of their driving abilities – speeding, miscalculations, even substance abuse.
No fear, because OnStar has a solution. They call it Family Link. This new piece of the OnStar connected services suite allows parents to stay connected to their teens no matter where their young drivers roam. OnStar provides access to teens’ vehicle locations. Parents can also set up email or text alerts to know when a vehicle has arrived and departed a destination or traveled outside a specific area.
Any Chevrolet owner in the U.S. with a 2012 model year or newer vehicle and an active OnStar subscription can sign up for three months of free OnStar Family Link by visiting OnStar.com. After the three-month trial is over, parents will have the option to keep OnStar Family Link for $3.99 a month plus tax.
In addition, owners of 2015 or newer Chevrolets can also add OnStar Smart Driver to their plan. What this service does is to help teens develop better driving skills, enabling parents to give feedback and spark discussion with OnStar Smart Driver. The service provides monthly and trip-by-trip scores based on driving behaviors such as hard braking, driving at speeds over 80 mph and rapid acceleration. The monthly reports also rank where a driver stands compared with others in the state or with individuals who drive the same Chevrolet vehicle.
And after 90 days, parents can choose to share their OnStar Smart Driver driving report with participating insurance companies to potentially qualify for savings.
For parents, OnStar can provide additional peace of mind for their driving-age children to become better, safer and smarter drivers on the road. Stop by Jack Burford Chevrolet for a demonstration of these services – and to help you add them on to your OnStar plan!
