This week, GM announced that they are going to make OnStar available in aftermarket form. Soon, you can go into Best Buy and pick up an OnStar mirror. With it, you’ll have access to OnStar’s Automatic Crash Response, GPS vehicle location and more. The aftermarket OnStar mirror will also have bluetooth capability.

Best Buy will be carrying the mirrors soon with other retailers soon to follow.

    Why would you want to? Lincoln already comes with SYNC and there is no monthly charge for it. The only feature that SYNC lacks vs OnStar basic service is the LoJack feature and I can ad that to any car for a lot less than $20 a month. Sync also lets you pair up to 12 phones, control your MP3 player via voice commands (no other make can do that), and a TDI (Traffic Directions & Information) feature is free for 3years. OnStar charges even more for this added feature. Feel free to contact me for a demonstration.

      I don’t think this is intended for a new Ford so much as older cars. If you have, say, a 2003 Dodge Dakota or you got your Mustang a year before Sync came out, then this might be an attractive option.

    Since it is satellite system, does “OnStar” cover the entire country? (Sync only works where there is cell phone service.)
