But can you honestly say you drive no more than 35 mph down a completely deserted rural road deep in the mountains? And are you saying that OnStar would not help me if I were to run into some remote ditch? That is the first I have heard of this. I was told that even out of cell phone range, the satellite portion of the system would still operate to locate my car and send for help, even if I could not talk to the OnStar operator. Does the system work as advertised, or is it all smoke? John Davies Monroe WA USA
