Buick recently launched a new OnStar feature that’s designed to make you a better driver called OnStar Smart Driver. But how does this system work? More importantly, does this system actually make you a better driver? Read on for details!
How does Buick’s OnStar Smart Driver work?
Buick’s OnStar Smart Driver is now part of OnStar’s Basic Plan, so subscribers will have access to this feature at no additional cost. The system is constantly monitoring driving behavior in an effort to maximize the vehicle’s overall performance. Drivers will need to enroll in OnStar Smart Driver, and once they do, they’ll be sent monthly feedback about their driving performance. Hard braking, hard acceleration, late night driving, distance driven, time spent idle, speeds over 80 mph and average speed will all be included in the monthly report, as will tips for enhancing driving skills.
