OnStar is showing off a new service today at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show that will help drivers find local deals and make purchases right from their car.
Called AtYourService, the OnStar powered feature will be able to connect drivers with retailers and merchants on their drive. This is made possible by the included OnStar 4G LTE Internet connection that is in every new GM vehicle sold today.
AtYourService will be available in both the U.S. and Canada in 2015 with several partners including Dunkin’ Donuts and Priceline.com. Online coupon services RetailMeNot and Entertainment Book will deliver retail and shopping coupons, while Parkopedia will offer information for parking. Audiobooks.com is also an AtYourService partner, supplying audiobook content to drivers on the road. When using the OnStar concierge, if a driver requests directions to a point of interest that has an applicable deal or connection to one of its partners, the OnStar advisor can send the special offer from that merchant.
Drivers will also be able to book a hotel through an OnStar advisor. Thanks to the partnership with Priceline.com, OnStar advisors can provide information on availability, cost, amenities, and ratings, then book a hotel reservation and send directions to the vehicle.
