Opel on track to have OnStar system in its cars later this year
OPEL will bring the OnStar infotainment system to its passenger cars (such as the Mokka, pictured) in the second half of the year. The automotive connectivity is already used by around seven million people around the world and is now due in Europe.
The package includes Wi-Fi hotspots and mobile and emergency services. Opel say it can help around the clock and all year as an adviser will always be available.
The system covers vehicle data (tyre pressure, oil life) via the OnStar smartphone app (which can also lock or unlock the car). Up to seven mobile devices can be connected at the same time.
