Default onstar unlimited 4G LTE vs.chevy unlimited access plan

Shopping for 4G LTE without breaking the bank. What do I lose by going with the cheaper Chevrolet unlimited access?

I think the $20/month add-on Unlimited LTE is the way to go. With either the Chevy or Onstar Unlimited plans you are paying $25/mo over the alternate plan and the only additional feature you get over the $20/mo add-on is Connected Navigation, which if you have a smart phone is imho useless.

Wow, I never realized GM charged for this stuff. In my Model S, all that connectivity, etc was free... from the app I could do everything, and slacker radio data, etc. all included...

Thank you for that response. That does seem like a very good choice. I am really considering that option. Thanks for the feedback!

Sold my Model S for $40k 2 weeks ago.

When you figure my Tahoe:
Purchase Price: $55,000
130,000 miles at 16 MPG, $3/gallon: $24,375

Total = $79,375 PLUS oil changes, brakes, etc.

So... yeah....

And how did you charge the Tesla for all the time you had it? Is the electricity in your home free? Yes, you spent a lot on gas for the Tahoe, but there is definitely a cost associated with keeping an electric vehicle running, too.
