You've been there before: the car breaks down, maybe it's a hot day on the freeway, you're on vacation, plans get preempted, you call the auto club and you plain-old have a bad day. What if this scenario happens miles from cell coverage or call boxes? Not even OnStar works outside of cellular coverage. Now there is SPOT Assist!
SPOT Assist provides the world’s first portable 24/7 roadside assistance service that operates solely on satellite technology offering complete service coverage even from remote locations without the limitations of cellular based services. When it comes to safety on the road, don’t take chances —take control with SPOT Assist roadside service. Learn how by clicking on Read More.
Important Notice: If you purchase the roadside assistance option, you will not be able to share the HELP button function to contact your friends and family. Once the help button is enabled for roadside assistance, the HELP button will only work for roadside assistance.
