Free OnStar Family Link Soothes Worried Parents

If your child is one of the 362,000 turning 16 this month, chances are you’re more than a little worried about them getting behind the wheel of the family sedan. That’s why Chevrolet is offering three free months of OnStar Family Link for any Chevrolet owner with a 2012 or newer vehicle and an active OnStar subscription. By using technology to receive email or text alerts when the subscribed vehicle arrives or departs a particular location, you can keep tabs on your kids and their whereabouts. For more information on how the technology works, visit Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.

Dream for Kids, Nightmare for Parents

“The day your children start driving is a dream come true for them, but it can be a nightmare for a concerned parent,” according to Luciana Chamberlain, executive in charge of the Family Link program. “OnStar Family Link can help minimize a parent’s anxiety by letting them know when their child has arrived at school, left a friend’s house, or traveled outside of their comfort zone.” After the free subscription period, Family Link services are just $3.99 per month. “Driving on their own was a big event in my children’s lives, but that also meant I spent more time thinking about where they were and how they were doing,” said Chevy marketing director Steve Majoros. “Chevrolet wants to put parents at ease by offering in-vehicle technology that shares real-time info on where their kids are and how they’re driving, so moms and dads can give feedback that helps their teens become better drivers.”

Teen Driver Helps Keep Youths Focused

There are now 10 vehicles in the 2017 and 2018 model year Chevrolet lineup that offer the Teen Driver technology. Designed to help keep teens focused on the road, Teen Driver lets parents set radio volume limits as well as issuing speed warnings when a teen driver goes above a particular speed. It will also mute the radio until everyone in the front seat has their belt on. Teen Driver will also issue reports about where a vehicle was driven, the maximum speed and any safety related events that occurred during the drive.

OnStar Smart Driver Issues Monthly Reports

OnStar Smart Driver is a service that issues monthly reports based on trip behaviors, speeds, hard braking events and rapid acceleration. By going over the report with your teen driver, you can talk about safety issues and how to see the “big picture” when driving to avoid any near collisions. See all the new technology that helps keep your teen driver safe when you visit Chapman Chevrolet.
