My GMC 06 LBZ dually is due in next week, at least that is what the dealer says. In reading all the various discussions about "codes", was wondering if anyone has tried the new OnStar option of transmitting vehicle status and receiving a report via email. As I understand the promotional material, it does it automatically on some schedule, or your can manually activate it. It is a no charge upgrade.

I get it automatic every 16th of the month, all you have to do is call and ask them to start it.

That would also mean that they will now know you added that BD also, I opted out. If I have a problem I will push the blue button and let On-Star run it then. That way you can always restore the stock program.

my brother is the service manager at the dealership so they tend to overlook the "little things" like that:ro)

no just talked to my brother and they get nothing from onstar like that the only thing they can get is codes oil/fuel life and miles and other irrelevent stuff. and by the way it dont matter if you subscribe to email delivery or not, they can still share with the dealer your info, when they send it to you at least you know what they are sharing.;)

that is what i would like to know also because if it is just the oil fuel life you can just hit a few buttons on the steering wheel and you can see that info

Yeah looks pretty useless expect to tell you about oil life and recalls.

My report actually doesn't show the codes at all. I'd imagine that if it did it would say that I need to take it into the dealer......
