I am a huge fan of The Celebrity Apprentice, are you? Last season one of my favorite episodes was when the contestants were challenged to create and film a commercial for OnStar’s new service, FMV. When I had the chance to try out OnStar FMV for myself, I of course jumped at the chance. In the past, OnStar was only available on GM vehicles as a pre-installed feature, but FMV stands for “For My Vehicle,” which means that many different makes and years of vehicles can now enjoy OnStar service, even my Honda Ridgeline.
Joel and I have been married for 7 1/2 years, and in that time have lived in 6 different states and one province! If only I had FMV’s turn-by-turn navigation 7 years ago, it would have made the many moves so much easier, from finding the closet grocery store, to travelling from state to state. We will be moving to Washington (hello, state number 7) in the upcoming months, and I can’t say how excited I am to have my new best friends to keep me from getting lost at every turn!
Although I love having a real live person at my fingertips whenever I need directions or help, one difficulty I have with OnStar is keeping Wyatt and Weston quiet enough in the background while I’m speaking with an OnStar Advisor. I can’t say I blame them though, I’m sure the friendly voices in our vehicle are a bit strange to them! I’m sure they’ll get bored of it soon enough and stop feeling the need to join in on the conversation :). Fingers crossed…
I’m thrilled with the Directions and Connections plan that I have, but if you’re only looking for emergency type care, they also have a more limited (and more economical) Safe and Sound plan available.
I have to say that I really do feel more safe and secure with OnStar FMV in my truck. I love the turn-by-turn navigation, and have already made use of the hands-free calling, but the piece of mind that comes with knowing that my family and I will be taken care of in an emergency is priceless.
