So in order to do my part for the economy, and to get prepared for what are bound to be increasingly snowy winters in the Mid-Atlantic region, I just
purchased a GM 4x4 vehicle. As some of you know, it comes standard with OnStar
which I have the
option to subscribe to or not.
Now there are obvious tracking implications for the conspiratorial mind, but the time being let us bypass those ... what I am having a hard time
finding out is whether or not the data collected from OnStar can be used against me in court in case of an accident or if it can be acquired and used
by insurance companies to determine rates? Also I can't seem to find out if OnStar still collects data from the system even if I choose not to
subscribe to it.
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. I don't mind forking out the $20 a month for peace of mind in case of an accident and to get
diagnostics, but I would like to know what I am giving up in the process.
Thanks and cheers!
