GM is offering owners of its connected cars free, limited WiFi access amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Customers can access the network anywhere within 50 yards of the vehicle.
The company will be granting 3 gigabytes of free data across three months. Customers who are having trouble picking up a cell connection can use the WiFi — in an emergency situation, it might prove a lifesaver.
The automaker is also providing its OnStar Crisis Assist service to vehicle owners for a limited time. Its advisors can help by contacting family members, putting customers in touch with emergency services, or guiding customers to a clinic or hospital if they need some assistance.
GM has also offered access to the service during other times of crisis, including hurricanes.
