National App Day Spotlight: OnStar Guardian App Launched to All Canadians

Just ahead of the National App Day on December 11th, we are spotlighting the OnStar Guardian mobile app which launched to all Canadians earlier this year. 


With its official launch, anyone in Canada can have the peace of mind OnStar provides for you and your family whether in your car, a friend’s car, rideshare, or just out walking. 

“The Canadian Guardian team built a whole new interface that allows us to communicate with non-GM owners in the same way we do with GM vehicle owners,” said Fred Dixon, Global Connected Services Product Manager.


Below are some of the app’s highlights:

  • Mobile Crash Response
  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • Share access to critical OnStar safety and security services with up to seven of your loved ones
  • Location Status
  • Favorite Locations and added functionality to Location Status
  • Allows members to save and share favorite locations on the app’s embedded map and receive notifications for when loved ones leave and arrive at their destination
  • The Red Emergency Button
  • Allows members to connect to an Emergency-Certified OnStar advisor for assistance or to report an emergency on someone else’s behalf

The OnStar Guardian subscription is available in Canada for $15 per month.
