Default On Star New Theft Activation Alarm Notification

I saw on Facebook today that On Star just released a new feature. On certain 2014/15/16 GM vehicles (the 2015 Corvette is listed) you can sign up thru your On Star subscription to have On Star send you either a phone call, text message or email if your factory installed theft alarm is activated.

On Star can then track the vehicle and notify the authorities of its location.

I called On Star and the rep said this is a very new feature and notification of it hasn't yet been sent on all its customers. She went ahead and signed me up for it.

It could prove to be a valuable tool when traveling and leaving the Corvette in a hotel parking lot or when out for an evening dinner, movie, etc.

Default On Star New Theft Activation Alarm Notification

With the key fob tech (auto door unlock, remote start, eric.) it's within the realm of possibility that the gm system could get hacked / jail broken and the almrm never get activated. In that case onstar would be useless. I like the LoJack early warning system. But that also depends on the fob (how far away the car gets from it).
