We get a
lot ton of mail here at GM Authority. From questions to complaints and everything in between, our inbox gets flooded every single day. Though we do our best to reply to those personally, we sometimes publish the answers publicly here on the GM Authority blog. This week’s question is one we’ve been hearing more and more often:
How do I connect to the OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot connection in my vehicle?
The answer is quite simple:
- First, make sure your vehicle has OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi by looking at this compatibility list.
- Get in your vehicle and start it. Press the white OnStar button on the mirror or on the overhead console (depending on your vehicle) and say (or select) “Wi-Fi Settings”. This will show you the network name (SSID) and the password to the network, which you will need in step 3.
- Now, take the device you want to connect to the Wi-Fi network. On the device, search for available Wi-Fi networks and connect to the network using the password shown on the screen.
Voila! Your device is now connected to the Wi-Fi network powered by OnStar’s 4G LTE connection.
