This Christmas OnStar will be bringing back its Santa Tracker service! This service has been a huge hit in the past and OnStar hopes that it will bring fun and joy to the children of thousands of OnStar subscribers nationwide!

This Christmas Eve,Guest Posting OnStar has something special in mind for all the kids on the nice list this year! This Saturday, kids all over America who have OnStar can track St. Nick’s whereabouts and find location specific updates about Santa’s deliveries. OnStar will use information received in partnership with the North American Aerospace Defense Command in order to provide kids with up to date information about Santa’s journey.

The one day only service will begin at seven a.m. on Christmas Eve and will continue through five a.m. on Christmas morning. On Christmas Eve, OnStar subscribers, even OnStar’s FMV users, can use their OnStar button to get a “Santa Update” through their vehicle. Then the OnStar advisors can provide users with Santa’s location.

“We see this holiday tradition as staying true to keeping subscribers connected in ways they never thought possible,” said Terry Inch, OnStar vice president, Sales, Marketing and Business Development. “We know many of our customers will be glad to know Santa’s location information is just one blue button press away.”

The North American Aerospace Defense Command uses a radar called the North Warning Radar System, which will be used on Christmas Eve to track Santa’s location. The radar utilizes geo-synchronous satellites and infrared sensors as well as many other advanced technological systems to monitor Santa’s journey across the globe. The radar can pick up the signal from Santa’s sleigh on the map and then will be able to share the information with OnStar who will then give kids across the globe Santa’s location. After tracking Santa all day kids may even be able to figure out where Santa might visit next- even their own house!

OnStar provided this service last year as well and many subscribers from last year remember it fondly. Children were delighted and would giggle every time they got to hear the next place that Santa had hit. And OnStar wants subscribers to know that as always this service will not interfere with regular OnStar services. With the harsh holiday weather no one can afford to take a risk with their safety and OnStar understands. That’s why this service, though fun and very important to the children of OnStar’s subscribers, does come second to the important work that OnStar does for their crash victims year round.
