No worry, you can disable the dealer notification feature by managing your OnStar online account. The OnStar representative even asked me if I wanted to enable the dealer notification during activation. I declined.Bayner66 said:I got the same 3 yr offer for the basic plan from my Buick/GMC dealer. Wondered why, then read further down the page where I notices that part of the offer included the dealer getting copies of the monthly diagnostic reports on my Acadia so they can email me about servicing my vehicle.
Still haven't decided if I will sign up or not. The only useful feature is remote door unlocking and I tend not to have a problem of locking myself out.
In addition to remote door unlocking, you can also remote start the vehicle with the Remote Link app. This way, you do not need to be within range of the key fob, i.e. you can remote start inside a building or store and have the car ready when you come out.
