OnStar with Text Telephone Capability (TTY)
General Motors is pleased to announce that the safety and security of OnStar is now available to our deaf, hard of hearing and speech impaired
customers. The current vehicles listed above, as well as forthcoming vehicles equipped with OnStar hardware version 7.0 or higher, have the ability to
utilize texting telephones. Vehicle specific TTY capability can be determined by utilizing the VIN lookup Tool. Additional information may be found by
referring to www.onstar.com/tty.
TTY equipment allows people who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired, in-vehicle access to 911 and basic OnStar(R) services by pressing the
OnStar(R) blue button or red emergency button. The keypad provides a means to communicate by allowing customers to type messages back and forth,
with an OnStar(R) advisor or other party when using the OnStar(R) Hands-Free Calling feature. A TTY is required at both ends of the conversation in
order to communicate. OnStar(R) Turn by Turn Navigation and Virtual Advisor are not available with the addition of TTY.
The Reimbursement Program
This equipment will be made available to eligible customers through GM Mobility and OnStar(R). Under this program, the customer must complete a
GM Mobility application form. To take advantage of the program, vehicles must be adapted at the time of delivery for purchase / lease and a dealer
claim ($1,000 Maximum per GM Mobility guidelines) with the application form submitted to GM Mobility. Saab dealers must fax documents. GM
Dealers will receive electronic reimbursement directly from GM Mobility. Saab dealers will receive a check directly from OnStar(R). Additional
questions or concerns should be directed to the OnStar Dealer Center.
