    I remember at the beginning of this year hearing how the shutdown of
    Amps would affect large amounts of OnStar customers. Even though I
    don't have that, I am curious how that was handled and what the results
    were.
    Can anyone shed some light on it?

    Anyone with an amps based OnStar lost their service when they switched
    to all digital. The in-car equipment cannot be upgraded. The only way
    to continue with the service was to buy a new car.

    My brother was one of those effected users. His ~5yo Saab has the amps
    equipment.

    Three friends of mine were also upgraded with their domestic vehicles.
    I have no clue what it cost them.

    My brother said that Saab said that it was NOT upgradable.

    Peter's Top 100 Things I'd Do If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord, #143.
    If one of my daughters actually manages to win the hero and openly
    defies me, I will congratulate her on her choice, declare a national
    holiday to celebrate the wedding, and proclaim the hero my heir. This
    will probably be enough to break up the relationship. If not, at least
    I am assured that no hero will attack my Legions of Terror when they
    are holding a parade in his honor.
