OnStar is opening its navigation services to anyone with an OnStar subscription on “Black Friday” (November 27, 2009).
“Black Friday,” the Friday after Thanksgiving, is the biggest shopping day of the year, with many stores attracting customers with special deals and steep discounts.
“We understand these are challenging times for our subscribers, and everyone is looking for bargains on their holiday gifts,” said Rich Martinek, OnStar navigation service line manager. “We think opening our services is a great way to help our more than 5.5 million subscribers navigate through the commotion while traveling from store-to-store.”
To use Turn-by-Turn Navigation, all a subscriber needs to do is press the blue OnStar button. They can request a route to a specific address, or ask an advisor to help them find a point of interest (POI), like the nearest shopping center or restaurant. OnStar advisors have access to an up-to-date POI database of more than 13 million locations.
