Verizon Wireless-On Star-GM

OnStar and Verizon have joined forces to demonstrate the “future of in-vehicle entertainment.” By their powers combined, they’ve shown what could be possible by dropping a high-speed Internet connection into a car:
  • Vehicle Monitoring – Parked in a bad neighborhood? Monitor what’s going on with your ride from your smartphone or PC.
  • Impact Detection – You’re in the club and someone just hit your car in the parking lot. You know this because your car sent you a video of the offender.
  • Voice Portal – Call up YouTube, Twitter, Wikipedia, and music via Verizon VCAST on your in-vehicle display. Watch the road, though.
  • Home monitoring and control – Forgot to turn off the AC? No need to turn around, do it from your car. Check the security cameras when away as well.
  • Video chat – Oh, you thought you were doing it big using your car as a bluetooth headset? Wait until you can do video. Watch the road!
