Back in 2011, OnStar introduced the For My Vehicle (FMV) system that offered the services of the telematics service to vehicles outside of the General Motors family. The cost of the service was $299 annually, and the majority of its buyers came from Toyota and Ford. But all’s been quiet on that front, and for appropriate reason, as OnStar officials have confirmed that FMV will discontinue production.
The statement is as follows:
As far as OnStar FMV goes, we have decided to discontinue producing any additional OnStar FMV units. Those who have purchased OnStar FMV will continue to receive OnStar service for as long as they choose to subscribe. We have gained a number of key insights by launching OnStar FMV that will be very valuable as we investigate future ventures in the retail space.
On the horizon, OnStar will offer 4G LTE internet in select vehicles later this year, turning cars into wifi hotspots.
