The announcement was made in conjunction with last week’s GM Fleet Solutions Summit, held at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Using the embedded OnStar 4G LTE hardware in properly equipped Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles, Spireon customers can manage their OnStar-enabled fleets without any additional hardware costs or installation.
