So, if I have a business account Verizon cell phone, is there any way to get it to work with, or to get a second line for, my Acadia? I do not have a personal account.Boltbacker said:
This is going to be a future enhancement, with some of the Cadillac line XM and Nav already do this. But this will eventually be added to more vehicles. Right now if you have XM you can go to the XM channel for Los Angeles or any other major metropolitan area and hear current traffic levels.sandman said:If I call on Onstar from the Los Angles area, does it have the ability to call up a freeway map on traffic flow and tell me where the accident is that's blocking everything up?
Go to Onstar.com or easier Myonstar.com, enter in your account number(if you don't know it push the blue button and ask the advisor, then you can select the items you want Virtual Advisor to track for you. This does use up your hands free calling time though.admin said:sandman - companies out there are releasing technology that use cell phone systems to show real time traffic movement in a MUCH more accurate and complete environment than ever before. By actually using the cell towers to triangulate the thousands of cell phones, they can almost instantly identify traffic jams and slow spots long before an accident is reported to your local traffic center. I assume this type of technology will eventually end up in OnStar as well.
Unrelated question - So today I tried to use Virtual Advisor for the first time and it said "Your vehicles isn't set up for this feature" - how do I go about setting it up?
So my wife likes the Handsfree as I knew she would. We are on Cingular now, but look to change to Verizon. My work has a deal for 20% off the primary line, and Verizon suggested that I order the new phone for my wife and me-- and then after we get connected on America's Choice Family plan, then we call OnStar and get our vehicle added as the 3rd line. Is this the correct way?Boltbacker said:
Yes after you have your Verizon phone, push the Blue button and the OnStar advisors will connect you to the special Verizon team to set up the America's Choice Plan.mitchl said:So my wife likes the Handsfree as I knew she would.

That is so awesome! I'm surprised GM and Verizon don't advertise it more. If I were on Verizon I'd surely sign my Acadia up!admin said:mitchl - We had just one Verizon phone (so no family plan), pushed the button and they did the rest, set us up with family plan, created the second Verizon number for the Acadia and made the switch. Very easy.
