Airbiquity to provide connected vehicle consumer device with OnStar

Mirror-mounted telematics device available via retail in 2011

Airbiquity, a provider of wireless connected vehicle services, last week at CTIA Wireless in Orlando, Florida, announced the company's selection to provide data-over-voice technology to OnStar's retail product, OnStar FMV. OnStar's mirror-mounted retail device will bring connected vehicle services to virtually any vehicle.

"We're exceptionally proud of Airbiquity's eight-year relationship with OnStar, the leading brand in connected vehicles," said David Jumpa, senior vice-president of global business development, Airbiquity. Currently available on more than 40 MY 2011 GM models, OnStar soon will be available for installation on most other vehicles already on the road through local electronics retailers, including Best Buy.


"With our underlying technology, OnStar continues to offer an innovative and cost-effective range of services to drivers," Jumpa said. "Adding OnStar to a car is now as quick and easy as installing a new rear-view mirror."



According to Airbiquity, OnStar FMV will be available for purchase from North American consumer electronics retailers in 2011.
