This article relates the author's experience in using the OnStar navigation system. The system features in-vehicle safety, emergency security and information services, linking the driver and vehicle with a 24-hour command center in Michigan and providing direct cellular contact with a live person. Although OnStar services can provide accurate service, the system has its limitations. It is only as reliable as its computerized map system and site lists which are updated quarterly. Additionally, the system works only if the user is in a cellular-phone service area.
