OnStar Switching to Digital, Analog Customers Cut Off


GM will be forced to drop about 500,000 users begin­ning Jan­u­ary 1, 2008, when OnStar switch­es from ana­log to dig­i­tal telem­at­ics ser­vice. Most GM vehi­cles equipped with OnStar pro­duced pri­or to 2002 and some 2002 — 2004 mod­els are affect­ed. Elim­i­nat­ing ana­log ser­vice will result in a sig­nif­i­cant rev­enue loss for OnStar.
