Google & GM May Partner on Roadside Assistance

May 14, 2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - Google and General Motors may pair smartphones based on the Android operating system with GM's OnStar driver roadside assistance service, according to the Wall Street Journal.

WSJ reported General Motors Co. is in talks with Google Inc. about a deal to link phones using the Internet company's Android operating system with the car maker's OnStar driver information service.

The pairing would likely involve a way for users of Android-based smartphones to use OnStar features from their phone while not in their car, with access to information about their vehicle's maintenance needs through the Android phone, reported WSJ.
