? OnStar overage charge ?

Just signed up for OnStar WiFi hotspot promo. 3 GB or 3 months whichever comes first.
Nice!
What is the rate if I go over ?
I will probably continue with the Hotspot feature only.

OnStar service ends Dec 31 2020 though.

Re: Greenlots ?

Will wonders never cease !!!

Last week I got a $9 refund on my credit card .

Today my Greenlots RFID card arrived .... from Calgary CANADA

Great !

Card is purple ..... seems more logical to have a Greenlots card .... green ?

But I don't have a degree in marketing.

Re: Greenlots ?

OK. I have the App. Not optimistic about getting the card or a refund on it.

BTW, in Ontario / Canada . myEVroute is an unreliable Charging network. Poor customer service. Got government funding several years ago.
