OnStar has announced an extension to the pilot of its Family Link service, which it announced at the beginning of last month. This means that users who are part of the pilot can continue Family Link, which was originally set to end on 9/15/11, for free. In an email to customers, the GM telematics subsidiary wrote:

The GM Authority Take
We’re huge fans of Family Link here at GM Authority and have been using the pilot since it was announced in August. This, ladies and gents, is one of the most useful new-age services we’ve ever used in a car… bar none.
