Dealer telling me I cannot delete Onstar

Looks like the new advertising of Nav "Directions and Connections thru Onstar" in every car will effect the Camaro. My dealler told me I cannot delete the Onstar. Looks like ugly antenna on the roof no matter what....

Yup, a sad waste of resources...it took me a while to find a 2006 GMC truck without the "DeathStar" option.

It is a great resource for some.
Personally, I don't find it useful enough to justify the cost, but quite a few people I know use it regularly.

Regarding the antenna, there is always a quick trip to your local body shop to remove it

I don't really care for other features, but I do love using directions and connections.

Can't speak for him, but it sounds as if the lump on the roof is the issue.

i wouldn't want Onstar because i don't like the feeling of people knowing exactly where i am at all times. i don't know how it works, but isn't there some sort of mic in the car that allows you to talk to the Onstar people as well? i don't need hidden mics in my car either.

We have OnStar in our Silverado SS. I don't need the directions part of the service so we don't pay for that. I do like the basic service because it gives you the option of having phone service. The phone works ANYWHERE the truck has reception for the satellite radio. Cell phones don't work everywhere so this is the part of OnStar that keeps me as a customer. One phone call could be worth the entire amount I have and will pay for this service.
