OnStar Demonstrates Buick LaCrosse with Future Technologies for Columbia SC Drivers


Today, OnStar unveiled a demonstration of technologies that could be offered in the future, all using an advanced version of the navigation system available in the Buick LaCrosse for sale in Columbia SC.  Many of these new technologies are becoming possible thanks to the rollout of new LTE 4G cellular data technologies by Verizon Wireless.  OnStar and Verizon Wireless have been partners for over a decade, as OnStar connects thousands of vehicles daily using Verizon’s wireless network.

Among the features previewed in the short clip embedded below is the ability to preview live traffic cameras when setting a route, allowing drivers to tweak their planned path to avoid delays.  Also promising for Columbia drivers who cringe at parking in close quarters is a system of small cameras around the vehicle that could activate if an impact was detected while you were out of the vehicle, allowing you to capture images of whoever hit the vehicle and send the information to your smartphone.  Those same cameras could allow you to take a live look around or inside your LaCrosse from anywhere, providing added peace of mind as you approach your vehicle.

Even today, OnStar offers Columbia Buick customers a host of safety and security options unmatched by any other manufacturer.  Every 2011 Buick LaCrosse comes standard with six months of OnStar service, which includes features like Turn-By-Turn Navigation that downloads the route directly to your digital information center, even if your LaCrosse is not equipped with the available navigation system.  Those directions can be downloaded directly from Google Maps, or by an OnStar Advisor when you press the blue OnStar button on your rearview mirror.  Your OnStar Advisor can also give you information about where nearby businesses, ATMs, and gas stations are in order to get you going quickly.

OnStar also provides Columbia drivers with added safety and security, including Automatic Crash Response that will contact OnStar immediately when a crash is detected.  The advisor will contact local emergency services with your exact location and stay on the line with you until help arrives. It all happens automatically, even if you’re unable to answer the call yourself.  OnStar also features Stolen Vehicle Assistance, which will allow the police to locate your vehicle once it’s been reported as stolen, and Crisis Assist to help you navigate to safety during natural disasters or other crises.

Convenience is also provided by OnStar, including complimentary roadside assistance should your LaCrosse need a tire change, a tow, or a little gas to get to the next service station.  OnStar can also command your LaCrosse to flash its lights and sound the horn in case you can’t find it in a crowded parking lot, and even unlock your doors if you’ve locked yourself out.  Every month, OnStar will also automatically email you maintenance information about your LaCrosse, making it easier to keep on top of scheduled maintenance critical to keeping your LaCrosse in top running order.
