A leading automotive safety service just got easier to secure. OnStar technology, previously available only in General Motors vehicles, can now be added to other cars on the road thanks to the new OnStar FMV. Short for “For My Vehicle,” FMV can be installed in top-selling cars (via a replacement rearview mirror) from most major manufacturers, and it provides reassuring features like instant links to emergency services, stolen-vehicle assistance, turn-by-turn navigation and automatic crash response, which detects sudden collisions and instantly contacts an OnStar adviser, who makes sure that help is on the way if needed. From $19 per month, plus installation of mirror, which retails for around $299; www.onstar.com
