I agree I have a 765T and it's far more accurate then my friends Onstar, and lets not forget there's STILL no Mylink so your now paying the same fee for Onstar as say someone who has a Traverse and can use all the Mylink features. I think Onstar should have an automatic rebate for Malibu owners since you pay the same as everybody else but you can't use all the featuresToday's portable GPS units are so much more accurate in positioning than what OnStar could ever be that its amazing. The $149 Garmin 1490T that I gifted my wife (and later upgraded to Lifetime Maps for another $89) is so fast, and so accurate that it has lane choice notification. That's possible because of two things.
One, the 5" wide screen is sharp, full color and BIG. The OnStar display is a heavily-pixelated monochrome pointer, is the navigational equivalent of banging two rocks together in a world of precisely-machined steel tools.
Second, it's true GPS positioning. It's NOT triangulating between 3 cell phone towers of varying signal strength, but actually pulling a signal from a geostationary satellite.
Pay monthly or annually for OnStar when you want the security of theft recovery, remote unlocking of your car, maintenance reminders because you can't read the little text in front of you, or need a 5% additional discount on one portion of your car insurance bill.
Pay once for accurate location, maps, directions, points-of-interest, traffic and pretty pictures.
