gm onstar hacking

onstar serial hack

this site shows you how to jack in to the gps receiver inside any gm onstar system.  it’s as simple as soldering a up a serial cable.  you can then connect to it and either run some gps diagnostic software, or switch the device to nmea mode so that you can use it with your gps mapping software in your car pc.

if you’ve got an onstar system but aren’t paying for the service this might be just the hack for you.  thanks for the link leo!

  1. I work with the guy that maintains this page and he said that a lot of the information is out of date and hasn’t been updated in over a year. I don’t have OnStar so I am not sure what has changed.

  2. I first saw this site a couple years ago. It only has information for the older Onstar boxes; pre-2004, I think. In any case, it does work on those boxes. Basically, you wire a serial cable to the GPS chip and then override the Onstar box to get the GPS data. Kinda cool if you don’t use the OnStar in the car and want to put a GPS system into your car in a clean manner. You can also disconnect the microphone and radio/automute connections from the OnStar box and wire them up to a bluetooth car kit for your cell phone without too much difficulty.

  3. Im interested in hooking up a bluetooth kit to this…anybody got any info or instructions on that? email me dave_holman@@yahoo.com (only one @)

  7. I have an 02 mercedes clk 320, need to know how to disconnect the onstar! i bought the car at an auto auction and the former owner used it to locate me to try to get the car back, so i need to disconnect! thank you!!!

  8. Melissa,

    The former owner didn’t track you with the Onstar he probably did a public records request to find out where you lived.

    To make sure contact Onstar and make sure there is no account still tied to the car for a previous owner.

  9. Can i get the addresses of all GM vehicle owners as well as instructions on deactivating the onstar system, and a brick please?

    alternately, just unscrew the 2″ long whip antenna, or park in a place with no cell reception… like inside a shipping container.
