    Fist of all, the antenna sold here in the store is an antenna, not a receiver. In order to have GPS funcionality on your PC from the Onstart hardware, you'd need to pull signals from the receiver, not the antenna.

    Second, there is a post here that gives information on how to hack OnStar for the GPS. It's older and may not reflect newer hardware.

    Third, OnStar doesn't have WiFi included, so you won't use the antenna for WiFi at all.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
