News : Vauxhall to Launch Emergency Call Systems Ahead of Legal Deadline
Luton, UK, July 20, 2015 -- Nearly two years before in-car emergency call systems become a legal requirement, Vauxhall is launching a versatile new connectivity system across three of its most popular ranges.
From October 2015, Onstar will be standard equipment on higher-spec Astras, Vivas and Insignias and an option across the rest of those model ranges. Via a button panel near the interior light, passengers will be able to ask a 24-hour call centre for navigation, vehicle diagnostics or emergency assistance. Onstar can also turn the car into a 4G portable WiFi hotspot connecting up to seven in-car devices.
A smart phone app gives access to vehicle diagnostics information such as tyre pressures or engine oil condition and permits remote locking and unlocking. Onstar can also track a stolen vehicle. When the car draws to a halt, its engine can be disabled.
