OnStar Just Got Sweeter

Who could have ever guessed just how big Google would become? And who knows how much more they will grow in the future?  Not me.  All I know is that Google does, almost everything, right.  OnStar must know this too as they recently took advantage of Google’s wealth of knowledge and voila (minus the accent): OnStar now comes Google Maps as an app.

Later this month all GM vehicles  (from 2006, up) that are equipped with Turn-by-Turn Navigation will be able to use the Google Map feature.  This feature will be available through OnStar eNav Technology and will enable users to effortlessly receive directions and turn by turn visual signals to get to their destinations without any hassle.

The best part of all of this (((besides the point that you don’t have to go to Google, print out the directions to where you want to go, then hassle with the papers while driving  and swerving in and out of traffic.))) is it’s FREE. Google will be adding this feature at no additional cost to your OnStar subscription. Pretty cool, eh!

Here’s a video about OnStar’s similar feature integration with MapQuest.
