Video: DROID X Makes an OnStar Appearance

The Droid X makes a pretty substantial appearance in the new OnStar commercial, showing off some apps that will be available to car owners with the service.  In the spot, the DX is shown as having the ability to check on the status of your car, unlock it, or start it from anywhere and I’ve got to admit that it almost has me thinking about going General Motors for the first time in my life.  Wait, is GM still making cars?

The 27 second mark for those impatient peeps on a Friday.

Cheers Brandon!

    his technology takes the best features from OnStar and places it in the palm of our hand. Drivers will have the ability to remotely start their vehicle, activate horn and lights and lock/unlock their vehicle’s doors from their smartphones

    The Onstar system works off of cellular systems…not satellite systems like they try and make people think.

    Viper alarm systems have been doing this for a while already and I only$ 29.00 per year instead of$ 29.00 per month. Also, the Onstar system works off of cellular systems…not satellite systems like they try and make people think.

    GM +1 Droid +1

  • matty

    Government Motors are the worst vehicles made. Not worth buying one just for offstar.

  • timarnette

    I love it!!!!!!!!!!

  • Desolater

    Why wouldnt you want a GM? please dont tell me your against buying American cars..

    • Alan B

      If you weren't of age during the 1980's and early 1990's, then you might not understand why some people swore off Ford and GM. I still buy U.S.-made cars, but from Honda and Toyota.

  • Justin

    Onstar is a waste of money.. that is unless I roll my truck off the side of a cliff and am unable to call for help myself. Maybe it would be with it then.

  • Lloyd

    I had OnStar…a total waste of money. Everything it does can be done by the car's nav system, or now a Droid. Oh and I don't need to pay OnStar to tell my that my fuel door is open, the car does it on it's own…and I can see it if I use my side view mirrors!

    • Guest

      Huh, I had no idea my car's nav system would call an ambulance when I got in a wreck, or help me change a flat tire, or unlock my car when I locked my keys in it…

    It's called ObamaMotors now.

  • antintyty

    yes, “Government Motors” is still making cars….lol

  • Stephen D

    That's actually really cool. Wonder if OnStar is coming to Ford's?

    • http://www.facebook.com/justin.munroe1 Justin Munroe

      No they have sync and OnStar is GM only thing

    Some more info on this app. It is for 2011 model year cars ONLY. They had a hardware upgrade which this app HAS to have in order to work. The first post here has a lot of info on the app for people thinking of getting this.

      I was surprised that the good voice from above at OnStar actually knew about this app/feature. The service rep confirmed that only the Generation 9 hardware was compatible and it was not able to be retrofitted onto a pre-2011 model.

  • stangdroid

    Yes we are still making cars. we are making some of the best cars out right now. I own a new malibu and love it. Should since I build it! This app will be sweet since my wife and I both have droids.

    • Alan B

      “we are making some of the best cars out right now.”

      Too late.

      • stangdroid

        too late for what?

        • Alan B

          The reputation of Ford and GM is already sullied by those who were of age in the late 1970s through the early 1990s. Yes, I hear that the brands are better now, but once I get a junk product from a company a couple of times, I never buy from them again (especially when the product was a major investment). In that sense, the claim that we now make the “best cars” comes too late. The Japanese brands have served me and my family well, with consistent performance and longevity.

          By “we”, I assume you mean cars made by companies headquartered in the U.S. But, we make many cars in the U.S. with Toyota, Honda and other foreign brands, and many Ford/GM cars are made in Mexico and Canada. Jingoism just doesn’t fit in a world of multinational companies.

          I’ll get a Ford or GM as soon as I get a credit for the crap cars I bought in the 80s.

  • pcguru30

    that's pretty awesome.. I wonder if any other security systems are working toward this? i can forsee locking my keys in my car but i almost always have my phone on me, being able to unlock my car from my phone would rock

  • boot879

    Oh… and 4th and 5th

  • boot879

    I have had onstar in several vehicles. The “diagnostic” gets better with each model… but it really just tells you if the tire pressure drops, how much estimated time your oil has left and if an engine senor is having trouble. You get all that from your dash lights. The crash thing is ok… but only goes off if there is an airbag deployment… which in 5 years as a first responder in a major city I can tell you is pretty rare amongst crashes. I have only responded to 1 crash called in by onstar. Its a nice feature… but I wouldn't choose GM over another brand JUST because of the Onstar system.

    “Just outside of Lancaster…” That's funny, I live just inside of Lancaster.

  • jak341

    Don't own a GM, but this would be a must have app.

  • http://perpetualn00b.tumblr.com quiklives

    I don't want a GM/Chevy/etc car, but this is awfully tempting. I wonder if we'll see it for other brands.
