    Arrow Track your car with OnStar's new service

    as posted here: http://www.camaroscotty.com/2011/07/...s-with-onstar/

    Dad, can I borrow the Camaro??? THE ANSWER IS STILL NO! But it it WERE yes, OnStar has a NEW SERVICE going into a pilot program:

    Details were sent to selected customers only for now, but here’s what it does:
    the new Family Link service from OnStar.1

    Stay connected with your loved ones no matter where they roam with the new OnStar Family Link service. When you enroll in the free Family Link pilot program, you gain unique access to the location of your OnStar-equipped vehicles along with the option to receive scheduled email or text message alerts about those vehicles. That means peace of mind for you and your loved ones while they’re on the road.
    features of OnStar’s Family Link service include:
    Vehicle Locate

    Find out where your loved one is at any time with Vehicle Locate.2 Just access Family Link online to view a map with the vehicle’s exact location.

    If you’ve got a new driver in the house, Vehicle Locate gives you peace of mind as he takes to the road.
    If your family member is driving across the state to visit a friend, use the Vehicle Locate feature to check on her progress.
    If your spouse is unreachable and driving in inclement weather, the Vehicle Locate feature can help you determine when he might be home safe and sound.

    Vehicle Location Alert

    Set up email or text message notifications and the Vehicle Location Alert2 feature will let you know the location of your loved one’s vehicle. You can choose the day, time and frequency of the alerts.

    If your teen driver is supposed to arrive at school every day at 8:00 a.m., use a Vehicle Location Alert and get a text every day regarding the vehicle’s location—without you or your teen picking up the phone.

    I think it would be useful for keeping track of your car's location when you have it at the dealership for service.
