OnStar FMV Mirror Review + $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway









Everyone knows about OnStar: the comprehensive in-vehicle safety, navigation, and communications system. Up until recently, the system has been reserved for use only in GM cars.


That all has changed! I’m excited to announce the launch of the OnStar FMV rear-view mirror, which works in most vehicles.


The folks at OnStar were kind enough to send me a mirror to test out and I got it installed a few weeks ago. Here’s what is great about it: the system provides many of the same services as the original OnStar system including automatic crash response, turn-by-turn navigational routing, stolen vehicle tracking, hands-free calling, and roadside assistance. Plus, it’s easy to find. The system can be purchased at your local electronics retailer (ie. Best Buy, Frye, ABC Warehouse).




The new OnStar system is perfect for me because, like most moms, I practically live in my car. And one of my worst fears is finding myself in a position where I need help but am not able to get it. The OnStar FMV mirror provides the safety and peace of mind that we all need as parents and caretakers of young children.


When my car was new, I didn’t worry that much about it breaking down. Now that it’s creeping into old age, however, I find myself getting increasingly uneasy whenever I plan a road trip or head anywhere off the beaten path (which is five miles off the freeway in any direction in Florida). What would happen if my car breaks down...gulp...here…and with the kids? Since getting the OnStar FMV system, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I am now free to roam the country or at least the swamplands of central Florida with fewer worries.


Having used the system for a few weeks now, I can personally attest to its ease and accessibility. I have my cell phone linked into the system so I can talk to people hands free. Also, just this afternoon, while I was loading something into the back of the car, my preschooler climbed into the front seat and pushed the OnStar emergency call button. The operator was on the line before I could blink my eye, asking me about the nature of my emergency. I was more than a little embarrassed to tell the poor woman that I did need assistance, but not the kind that she could provide :)


While I'm going to work really, really hard to make sure that little fingers don't push any more buttons for fun, it's a relief to know that even the smallest of children can reach the OnStar team if they need to.


I am happy to announce that Blogher and OnStar are teaming up to offer one lucky reader of the Meanest Mom blog a $100 Visa gift card!

I really need the roadside assistance. We are driving cars that are on their last legs (wheels, body, engines, transmissions, etc...)and I would love some peace of mind that if we got stranded, we could get help quickly. :)

Anna-Lisa said...

It would help in any emergency, like when I need to know where my teenage son is with my car!

aggiemomof2 said...

I have epilepsy and even though it's been long enough since my last seizure that I can drive legally...I'm still nervous about having the kids in the car! OnStar would make us all feel much safer!

Team Houston said...

Since I live in the city it would help me if my car broke down and then I could call for help. I would also use it for hands free cell phone use.

karenmed409 said...

Onstar would be great, I travel a lot with our scouts and have gotten turned around on country roads trying to find the camp sites.. would be so nice to have a voice guide us.I liekt that feature to get instant help in case someone gets injured.

This could help my family when "I'm not lost, I've been here before", it happens a lot, and it would be really nice to know someone out there is out there to help me.

Lori said...

I like the navigation turn by turn feature--it'd make getting to the kids' activities way easier.

Mandy said...

I watch too many of those missing people shows where some woman was stuck upside down in her car for 5 days. I'm so excited that this is now available for my foreign-made car!

Amy said...

Well I since I don't have children the OnStar system will help me not back over my aging parents as they walk behind me with their walker and cane. I'd hate to put them back in the hospital after they both just had double knee replacements.

Kristina said...

The peace of mind that comes with OnStar would be fantastic. Any number of things can go wrong when out and about with 4 kids! And of course the husband's always in a meeting when I need him.

Melissa said...

This is so exciting, I had OnStar in my Suburban, but now I have a Sequioa and no OnStar, I've got to go get me one of these. I could use it most in my 1996 4Runner that has almost 200K miles on it, I drive 35 miles to work and there are alot of places I wouln't like to break down alone...

Deanna said...

When I call my husband and the first thing I say is "Are you at your desk?" he knows I am going to ask him for directions or a phone number. He would loooove for me to not have to call him.

KarenTX said...

I'm on the road a lot between TX and LA, be nice to have that sense of security for me and mine!

Michelle said...

Oh I love OnStar! Was so sad to have to give up my (wonderfully aged) Impala last year. Unfortunately my new ride didn't come with this lovely lifesaver. I've not had good luck with GPS, so that would be my main reason for using it.

theamazingjohnsons said...

I would feel better knowing that help be on the way with just the touch of a button, especially since my kids would be able to use it if I wasn't able to.

pookie said...

My GPS suddenly died today. How weird is that? So...i hope i have the opportunity to replace it with this fabulous giveaway! Thanks so much...

We live in a snowy area 6 months of the year so it'd be great piece of mind to know it would be easy to call for help if need be!

Nancy D said...

I would love to have the peace of mind that OnStar brings. If I won the gift card I would be at Best Buy purchasing this mirror as soon as I could!

Josh and Anna said...

Having Onstar gives you piece of mind if you are ever in an emergency situation, and it's great for directionally challenged people like me who get lost in my own neighborhood:)

Elise Thompson Kacal said...

I think it would be great for when I get lost. While I do have a smart phone with plenty of map aps, a screaming baby can really frazzle me. It would be wonderful to have a real person help me find my way.

Kim said...

I live in rural Colorado, there are many areas where there is no cell service....knowing that I could call for help from the middle of nowhere would be very comforting.

It would provide us such peace of mind!

We recently took a road trip. My husband and his bestie were in our truck and his bestie's wife and myself were in the car with all of the kiddos....they called us every 15 mins to make sure we knew where we were going! With onstar they wouldn't worry about us and I would could stop answering my phone saying, we are only 3 cars behind you so stop calling to make sure we aren't lost!

Marcee said...

sorry...my email is mtcorley(at)mac(dot)com

whitney said...

As I drive older cars, knowing that help was just a touch away would be a huge comfort!

Lindsay Gatling said...

Our car isn't exactly new or the most reliable... (we've had it towed twice in the last month), my husband works nights so my son and I are often in the car by ourselves... needless to say it would give me great peace of mind to have OnStar on hand- knowing that help is just a button push away!

Melissa said...

My husband gets lost ALL of the time!! Me, me, me, me!

Angela Noelle of SK said...

We don't have ANY of the features this product except the rearview mirror.

And of all of its features, the handsfree calling would be the greatest asset - pulling over each time we need to answer or make a call is the pits.

Susan E. said...

It would help keep everyone safe and headed in the right direction.

Catherine said...

I've got 7 kids in different activities--a couple in high school where I like to drive to their "away games." This would be great insurance if I broke down or got lost.

Hands free phone feature is helpful.

I have a daughter getting ready to drive. Besides, the peace of mind in case something happens...she is directionally challenged. Having onstar will help her get to where she needs to go!

e.a.s. said...

I was just telling my husband that I wanted OnStar! We are both really bad with directions and constantly get lost..

Mrs. Spice (Holly) said...

I just moved to a new state and live in a rural area that I am unfamiliar with. The OnStar FMV would give my family peace of mind. Oh, and I would have a cool gadget in my car...that my husband would be jealous of.

Em said...

We're preparing for a 500 mile move across remote desert. OnStar would definitely give me some peace of mind!

CrysHouse said...

The onstar system would be a "safety" thing for my family. My husband and I live in the middle of nowhere and he works late. If I have car trouble after 3 pm, I need a support system to get back on the road.

Dawn said...

On-Star sure would have been handy when my twins locked themselves in my car. With my keys. Hubby was at work 40 miles away. It was 100 degrees outside. Thankfully I talked them into opening the door before having to call 911.

Kayce said...

Oh man! I would love the have this in my Chevy- it didn't come with but I think I would feel SO much safer knowing help was just a push of a button away- I let my son play with my phone while I'm driving and the thought of not being able to reach it would be awful!

Anonymous said...

That sense of security "just in case" would be such a relief--especially with two young kids in the car.
Right now I'm using an antiquated GPS system and sometimes it's more effective at getting me LOST than finding my way!

From the Heart Inc said...

Even though I love my Honda, it is getting up in years. Having this device would ease my mind as well. I am not the best at keeping my cell phone on me and charged so having an alternate form of communication if my vehicle were to be in an accident would be great.

The Lee Family said...

We are going to be moving and buying a car in the next month. I haven't driven in about 6 years so this sounds like a must to me!!!

Anonymous said...

Let's see between hitting deer, getting flat tires, and locking myself out of my car with 3 kids this would have been a nice handy item. I also have a tendency to stop for people who have had car accidents and this way my oldest could initiate the phone call for assistance while I start first responder care insead of trying to hold my cell phone. dcmeow47@yahoo.com-Barbara

cehendricks said...

Turn by turn navigation since I now live in a flat town with thick trees and no landmarks to be seen.

kourtney said...

It would TOTALLY help me as I lock my keys in my car about every other week now & hubby is tired of it. Plus, with my driving, it'd be nice to have someone always there to help when I need it ;)

danerick said...

Well, in addition to frequently getting lost, the onstar services would be really helpful in the case of an emergency. It certainly would give me much more peace of mind about taking my family out. Heck, I might even attempt to drive through snow again. Not to mention, sometimes you get lonely on the road and just need to talk . . . ;)

Krissyar said...

I would love to have a vehicle locator! I got lost in the Walmart parking lot last week lol

Sarah said...

My car is a few years old, and I would love the comfort of knowing if something happened, just a click of the button would get me (and the kids!) help.

Jenn said...

Would love to win.

Shelby said...

Having two small children, I feel like the OnStar system would really make me feel more comfortable --- especially the remote unlocking, and having help be one button away!

Maudy Wax said...

Onstar would help my husband from getting lost so often. :)

Rylee said...

Oh the many things I could do with an OnStar mirror! If I was selected, though, I would hand it straight over to my dear mother. She, like most working moms, practically lives in her car. All of her children are involved in many different activities that take her around the state, and she would be much better off with the gps. Her work and her children take up a lot of her cell phone minutes, and having the hands-free calling would really help her, especially to be focused on the road and not her hands. I'm sure a lot of women have these same things going on in their lives, but my mother deserves a little peace of mind. She works so hard for her family and for everything else she chooses to be involved in and since she is in her car for most of her free time, this would be a wonderful gift for her. As for the $100 Visa gift card, she deserved a little trip to the mall where she could pick out something just for herself.

Who couldn't use an OnStar?? I am so glad that this company has made this product available to the "Average Joe" who's car didn't come equipped with this little treasure. We have yet to purchase one, but I look forward to having the peace of mind it offers in the car with me at all times.

Do you know how many times I've locked myself out of the car. Or lost the car at the grocery store? OnStar was made for me!

AZ Larsens said...

The hands-free talking would be nice but what I'd really like is the emergency feature. Particularly when we're on these back desert roads we have to drive to get to my in-law's house which we drive a few times a year.

Lisa said...

Just knowing that there would be help just a click away. I also drive an older car that didn't come with OnStar and I cannot afford to buy a GPS and Ia m defiantly on the go go go and would love to have one.

I'm a mother of two who recently migrated here and started learning how to drive. With kids and newfound skill of driving, I've yet to know what to do in case of an emergency and this certainly will HELP me...

Ally O'Reilly said...

It would help me not be afraid to drive out of town for a weekend with my 2 little ones. Being a single mother of two and not an experiences driver is not easy, but the onstar would deffinetly give me a confidence boost and a good safety feeling.

Bailee said...

I think the emergency help. We have two fairly old, high mileage cars and like you said, they could break down just about anywhere. Cell phones are only so reliable and dependent on your ability to access them. I'd love to have on star in case of an emergency! thanks for the giveaway!

I live in Chicago - where even the police drive thirty miles over the speed limit! I would use it for the peace of mind that driving with these crazies robs!

Nicole said...

I am often alone with my 2 boys in the car so it would make me feel safer. Also, once or twice a year I drive 12 hours to visit my parents and the onstar system would definitely give me peace of mind.

Sarah Rae said...

The navigational routing could be a lifesaver! I just moved to a big city after spending most of my life in a smaller one. I get lost so easily! Plus, I always seem to be forgetting my cell phone or not charging it. A chance to get ahold of someone in an emergency would be more useful than I care to admit.

where do I begin.....the turn by turn navigation while I am traveling backroads in Arkansas and Missouri.... the hands free talking..... car failure..... any emergency situation. Exciting stuff...!!!

Anne Ludlow said...

My hubby's car is getting older too, and it would be so handy for him to have this in his car. Or maybe we'd put it in mine so I could hae remote unlock for the mornings when I send my kids out first to have 10 seconds to breathe (and find my purse), and they come running right back in because it's locked...

Katie May said...

I have a habit of forgetting my cell phone at home, so an OnStar would be a lifesaver were we to have an emergency.

Tutu said...

I often travel three hours to my mom's with my four kids. Just the peace of mind that would come with having immediate help available would be great!

Karen Carltonandkaren2@aol.com said...

We have a trial membership with Onstar right now set to expire any day. We used it to unlock the truck and it saved our butts big time! It would help our family because we have multiple food allergies in our family and asthma so you when you're trying to give an epipen or an inhaler it would be helpful to be able to have one of the kids hit the button and I have my hands free to do what I need to do!

Sarah said...

This would be nice for me, as well as for when my oldest is driving about in our minivan :)

Susan from WhatWeirdos! said...

I don't have a cell phone. I know! Shocking! But that's why OnStar would help in so many ways. From getting help in an accident, to providing the wonderful directions other people get from their smart phones. But I'm sure OnStar's directions are better!

Steph said...

I think the security of knowing I only had to push a button to get help if I was stranded would be worth it! The navigation is a great plus, too...

Lissa said...

being a single mom, I am always nervous about getting into an accident and having my baby cry which would make me cry, which would not be helpful. having onstar would help me deal with a safety situation, among other things..

I think this is a GREAT idea by OnStar! I have often wished that OnStar was an option for any car out there, but its always been a very limited range of brands that carry it. I would love to have this for my Prius! Thanks for making me aware of it!!! I think this would help my family have peace of mind when driving. If you are in a wreck, you are not always able to make a phone call or even shout out. This would let those that need to know that you need help regardless!

Wow! This is SO cool! I hadn't heard of it before. I could definitely use one in my car. I have triplets and we go everywhere in my car. Even though I have good directional sense, for some reason in the next city over I do not AT ALL. I get lost every single time.

I would use it for navigation. My husband is always stealing my Garmin from my van and it would be nice when you are lost in the middle of ten-buck-too to have a back up! Nothing like going on a small outing with your children and you wind up asking Cleatus for directions to the closest BIG road.

I could really use it....
I have no sense of direction and can't read a map

How would Onstar help my family? Just having the peace of mind of knowing someone is at the ready to help in times of emergency is priceless. There are just so many things that can, and do, go wrong on the highway. This would be great to have. Neither of the cars we own have this feature.

Eekkkk, almost missed the cut off. Give me the gift card, Mrs. Tuna got laid off from work and needs cheering up.

Oh good heavens that'd be a life safer :) im always one to forget my cell phone so im sure my husband would be at ease knowing help is only a button away. nyshamurray{at}gmail{dot}com

I really like the navigation, that would be great!

I'd love OnStar for those times when I am on a long trip, and there is an accident on the road I'm on; I'd love to have them re-route me!
Thanks for the giveaway!

I get lost allll the time. Any system that can help me with directions would be great! timkelly@tds.net

I do home health so my job involves driving to homes in places I've never even heard of before. Being able to get directions, get help, and use the blue tooth feature for my iphone would increase the safety of my job

Great for peace of mind.
Thanks for the contest.

My son's away at college now so it's just me - he worries about me, and vice versa. OnStar would give us both peace of mind :)

My Three Snakes and Snails said...

so I can listen to that soothing voice of the OnStar lady every single day!

Katie said...

I'm a mini-van-driving mom of 5 young children. Having Onstar might calm my abject terror at the thought of being broken down in some awful place with 5 kids in the back.

Cindy Swindell said...

ndiconWhat a neat idea. I would love to have the comfort of OnStar... and the freedom to shop w/$100

We drive a older van, and we are both disabled, so having that would be awesome, in case we got into trouble!!!

God Bless~

Katie said...

We definitely need OnStar!

Marti said...

Hands free calling and roadside assistance would be amazing.

Thanks!

I need some kind of hands-free option that is easy. I now have 3 kids in 3 schools and I'm spending way too much time in the car. If I could conveniently and safely make calls and take care of some of my responsibilities along the way, that would really help me balance my life better.

The hands free would really help me.

Thank you!

Wonderfulmom said...

That's what I need my GPS keeps getting me lost would love on star to help and the handsfree would be great since its the law here

Emily said...

The On Star would be so helpful. So would the gift card! :)

Heddy J. said...

I'd love the unlock feature! It was impossible to lock my keys in my last car. New car, possible and I've done it TWICE!

Laura Lowe said...

My husband works 12-hour shifts and has a long commute. Knowing that he had the onstar resource would definitely give me a bit more peace of mind about his safety!

Kendall said...

With a husband who travels internationally a lot and three young boy I would love the emergency call button. Also, the hand free calling would probably help prevent most of those emergencies from even happening.

Amy said...

It would be great if I got lost or got a flat!

The Beckster said...

My cell phone is always dying, and my car's charger does not work -- so I worry that if I break down somewhere at night or in a remote area I won't be able to call for assistance --the Onstar emergency notification system would be a great back up system!

AKutarna said...

I would love one of these! I have a HUGE fear of my kids locking themselves in our car. Also, I am terrible at directions so that would be an added bonus. Thanks for the opportunity.

Heather said...

I have OnStar in my GMC. I would love to win this for my grandmother. She loves to travel in my car because we can press the button to see how far destinations are.

Kathleen said...

I teach in a very dangerous inner city area. I would love this!

I am eternally lost. And late. And I have a 13 month old who thinks riding in the car is the most offensive thing anyone has ever asked him to do. Having a gps would mean less screaming. From Max, and me!

Hands free calling, turn by turn directions, what wouldn't be to like? pthaines (at) gmail (dot) com

Amalie said...

hands free calling would be great!

melissa said...

Hands free talking w/o a bluetooth would be awesome :)

Kayla said...

We had OnStar in one of our vehicles earlier - and yes, my kids pressed the red emergency button before I had time to stop them. The response team was so fast on the line, that it is just a relief to know that help is there when you need it most. And the guy on the other end didn't yell at me either for the prank call -- that's always nice! :)

Alyssa said...

Ooo, the turn by turn navigation would be a lifesaver for me. It'd definitely help with those in-car argument we currently have due to our GPS that is MOSTLY right on its directions.
*Turn left*
"Turn here. The GPS says turn here!!'
"Turn where? There's no turn, I can't-"
*Turn left*
"TURN!!!"
"I CAN'T!!"
*Recalculating.*

jennifer said...

I think it would help the safety of my family. I live in rural Montana and it's a long drive to anywhere. I am always nervous with the kids in car, especially in the winter, when we take a long drive. Knowing that someone was a button touch away would make me feel at ease.

Lisa Gibson said...

With four little kids in the car the peace of mind that we would have the help we might need and the safety of hands free driving for when a call must be made or taken.

AzĂșcar said...

Turn by turn navication!

Lilly said...

I think the hands-free calls sounds great!

Little Happys said...

would be great to have access to emergency services if ever needed!

Anne said...

In addition to added safety, etc, I think OnStar is awesome because you can talk to someone and have them tell you where nearby gas stations are, help with restaurant choices, etc.

Anne said...

Liz said...

I wish I had a car with OnStar!!!! It seems like such an amazing system!

Tracy B. said...

I would enjoy the hands free & the navigation.

Anonymous said...

It would great to put in my daughters car. Peace of mind when she goes to college.

Mari said...

On Star would be THE star in our car by its navagation system and blue tooth hands free phone talking mainly, (whoo hoo!) and knowing that help is a push button away; all amazing!
Thank you.
